With a stunning win over Brisbane Heat, the Thunder are coming into this game with confidence. Daniel Sams came up with a performance for the ages to hand them their first win of the season, after their top order struggling against Jack Wildermuth. They would love to maintain their momentum with another victory in this match.
On the other side, the Scorchers don’t have a victory to their name this season with their previous match being washed out by the rain. However, with both bat and ball, they have given glimpses of what they are capable of. Captain Ashton Turner and Jhye Richardson, both of whom have excelled this season will be riding a lot on their shoulders.
Even though the previous day had continuous rainfall, but on the match day, there would be no risk of rain. The temperature is roughly 18 degrees Celsius.
The average score on the pitch is 142, but the pitch could support both bowlers and batsmen. 2 of the 3 games played this season at the venue were won by the team batting second.
