Sydney Thunder preview

Sydney Thunder won their first BBL 11 game, but they have now lost two games on the trot. Alex Ross and Sam Billings are batting well, but the form of Alex Hales is a bit of concern. Hales was the highest run-scorer of last season, and he is the biggest asset of Thunder’s batting. In the bowling department, Tanveer Sangha has scalped five wickets, whereas Nathan McAndrew has scalped four. In this game, the bowling of the side will be bolstered by the arrival of Saqib Mahmood.

Probable XI: Sam Whiteman, Alex Hales, Matthew Gilkes, Sam Billings, Alex Ross, Ben Cutting, Daniel Sams, Chris Green, Tanveer Sangha, Nathan McAndrew, Saqib Mahmood.

Brisbane Heat will be the favourites to win this game.
