13th January at Manuka Oval – 7.15 PM Start Time
Today’s BBL match preview and tips come from the Guru at TPE. The 18th version of the Sydney Derby is tonight but Canberra fans will benefit as the match has been moved to the nations capital due to covid and travel regulations. Manuka Oval has hosted plenty of games in this tournament already, so both teams will hold no fear of playing there. Both teams sit at the top of the BBL ladder so this game shapes to be an exciting game with both teams full of T20 talent. The Thunder bowling attack is very strong led by ADAM MILNE and the very effective spin bowling of CHRIS GREEN. The Sixers bowling attack is very effective also led by JACKSON BIRD and the evergreen STEPHEN O’KEEFE. The key batting match up for this game for me is USMAN KHAWAJA vs DANIEL HUGHES with both left handers being key players in the option of being their “teams top run scorer”.
One of the Gurus favourites is SAM BILLINGS as the X factor player in this match and will be full of confidence after his last innings score, so look for him to hit some maximums tonight. The fact that the Thunder has played more games at the venue than the Sixers gives them that slight advantage, so the Guru is tipping the Thunder in what he thinks will be a very tight game and could even go down to the last over. Enjoy the Sydney Derby cricket fans.
