The Big Bash League 2020/21 season is heading into the New Year with tremendous momentum, especially if one is a Sydney franchise. The Sydney Thunder are in third position in the Big Bash League behind the Sydney Sixers and the Adelaide Strikers. While the Adelaide Strikers are on top, both the Sydney franchises are currently on a roll. On the other hand, the Melbourne Stars, despite being blessed with power hitters and all-rounders, are currently in the fifth position. However, the top five teams are separated by only three points and this makes the upcoming contest very interesting for both the sides. A win for either team by a big margin will take them to the top of the Big Bash League points table.
Sydney Thunder won their previous encounter by 129 runs against the Melbourne Renegades and it further piled on the misery on Aaron Finch’s side who now have a negative net run-rate of negative 3.4. Melbourne Stars, on the other hand, were undone by some brilliance from the Sydney Sixers captain Daniel Hughes as they lost their encounter by one wicket despite the brilliance of Nicholas Pooran and Glenn Maxwell. Pooran was the standout performer for Kings XI Punjab in IPL 2020 while Maxwell struggled but their combination tore the Sydney Sixers bowling apart. The duo will be expected to do the same in this crucial Big Bash League clash in Canberra.
