The Thunder have been the surprise standout opening the season undefeated thanks to wins over the Stars and Sixers.
They’ll travel to Adelaide on Monday to face a Strikers side with just one win in three games, the most recent of which came in a seven wicket drubbing at the hands of the Scorchers.
The Strikers have enjoyed the better part of this series winning the last three encounters, and as we all know, home field advantage is huge advantage for Adelaide.
The Thunder enter this one as the slight underdog, a role they’ve gone 1-1-4 in all games against the Strikers.
Adelaide on the other hand are 3-2 as the home favourite over the last 12 months, and with a handy five day break, the Strikers look good value to claim the win.
