The Thunder is a worthy favourite for this game with 2 wins from 3 matches so far. They have the second-best net run rate in the Big Bash at 0.847.

The Sixers have a 50% win ratio with 2 wins from 4 so far this series. It is worth noting that their two wins have both been against the Perth Scorchers who have lost three and won one game so far. Apart from that, the Sixers have Lost heavily to Brisbane Heat and the Hurricane Hobarts.

In some ways, the Thunder are unbeaten with 2 wins and one game called off for poor air quality, due to the bush fires in Australia affecting the air in the city too. This could pose a problem for tomorrow’s game too. Most online Indian bookmakers will void all bets if the game is declared void in these circumstances.

In the other two games, they comfortably beat the Brisbane Heat and beat the Renegades with 2 balls remaining.
