Both these teams come into this game after a loss. Eyeing to secure a position in the top four spots to enter the playoffs, both these teams will be looking to back their strengths and come back stronger for a win.
Sydney Thunder has fared better than their rivals, winning five of their ten completed games in WBBL 2020 so far. They come into this game on the back of a loss after a stunning win over Melbourne Renegades, where Heather Knight smashed a whirlwind fifty. Allrounders Sammy-Jo Johnson and Phoebe Litchfield have been incredible in wither departments. Chipping in with bat and ball just at the right times. They will want their captain Rachel Haynes along with Heather Knight to fire sooner than later.
Strikers are well on course for a playoff finish, with five wins in eleven games. But they seem wounded with the loss of Suzie Bates to a season-ending shoulder injury. Despite this loss, the Strikers have rallied well under the leadership of Captain Megan Schutt, who has led by example with the ball in hand. They have fought hard for every win clinched this season. Their all-rounders have made sizeable contributions, which help them look good for another win.
Although both teams look identical on paper, the Thunder might fancy their chances of winning given the Strikers’ woeful run of form in WBBL 2020. However, with the plethora of talent at their disposal, the Strikers could soon turn around their season. Nevertheless, we should be in for another entertaining WBBL game, with both sides looking to go all out for a Saturday win.
