Strikers vs Thunder Preview & Prediction

The Adelaide Strikers have found it tough going this season and if results don’t go their way, they good be parked at the bottom of the ladder. If they are to make their way into the playoffs this season, they need to win on New Year’s Eve.

Jason Gillespie’s outfit lost an entertaining contest last time out against the Hurricanes. Matt Renshaw and Jake Weatherald both made 50’s, but the Strikers struggled with the ball in hand on the Blundstone Arena pitch. However, they will fancy their chances at home against this week’s opponent.

Meanwhile, the Sydney Thunder returned to the winner’s circle emphatically against the Perth Scorchers to move them into the top four, with a healthy net run-rate against the teams in a similar situation.

Jason Sangha and Sam Billings capitalised on the Perth bowling, both scoring half-centuries in a 113-run partnership that spanned just over 10 overs. Meanwhile, they got off to the best start possible with the ball, taking 3/17 off the first four overs, which set the tone for the rest of the clash.

Both sides will have a healthy break as they enter the traditional New Year’s Eve clash on Friday night, and I believe the celebrations will be sour for the Strikers as they suffer another loss this campaign.
