The Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Thunder are the only two sides that are yet to taste defeat in BBL 9 (in regulation time, at least) and they will square off at the home of the former tonight. We take a look at Tuesday’s (31/12/2019) BBL Big Bash 2019/2020 match which is between the Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Thunder.

The Strikers could hardly have been more impressive and will take plenty of confidence into this match after another tough win over the Melbourne Renegades on Sunday. Rashid Khan was once again the standout; blasting a quickfire 25 with the bat and taking two vital wickets.
The Thunder have won two and drawn two but did lose their most-recent match against crosstown rivals the Sixers in a super over. They have clearly been in every contest right ‘til the end and are probably over the odds to win this at around the $2.10 mark.
These two sides have already met once in BBL 9 but were unable to decide a result after the match was abandoned. I genuinely think that both loom as a winning chance again and I’ll be staying away from match betting.
Tip: Sydney Thunder $2.15
