Preview for THU vs HUR Dream11 Contest
The resurgence of form shown by Sydney Thunder keeps them in the second position in the points table, comfortably above their opponents on Thursday, the Hobart Hurricanes. Hurricanes themselves aren’t in much trouble, but they will be aiming to finish with a bang and grab a higher position in the league table. Thunder and Hurricanes played out a pretty one-sided contest last time with the former running away easily, but the Hurricanes will try to seek vengeance in this fixture.
Probable Playing XI
Matthew Gilkes, Alex Hales, Jason Sangha, Oliver Davies, Daniel Sams, Ben Cutting, Nathan McAndrew, Baxter Holt (wk), Gurinder Sandhu, Mohammad Hasnain, Tanveer Sangha
Matthew Wade (c & wk), Ben McDermott (wk), Caleb Jewell, Peter Handscomb, D’Arcy Short, Tim David, Jordan Thompson, Mitchell Owen, Thomas Rogers, Riley Meredith, Sandeep Lamichhane
Some clouds will be hovering around the ground during game time, potentially threatening the proceedings, but we should ideally see the full 40-over contest go without interruptions. The temperatures will range around 16-27 degrees on Thursday.
The Sydney Showground has provided some decent high-scoring contests this season and we can expect a lot of runs from the side batting first. Any score in excess of 180 is definitely a possibility for the side batting first and they should be able to defend it easily.
THU vs HUR Dream11 Prediction
There isn’t a lot separating these two units in terms of individual quality, but the recent form favors the Thunder, which makes it important for fantasy managers to prioritize Thunder players while picking your team. There are some brilliant options in the Hurricanes unit for captaincy like Ben McDermott, who must not be ignored.
