The match between Sydney Thunder and the Sydney Sixers has been relocated to the Manuka Oval. It is one of seven BBL matches that have had to be rescheduled because of COVID-19 related restrictions. It is a credit to Cricket Australia that they have been able to respond with such speed to ensure the BBL goes on unhindered.
This contest is a top of the table one. Sydney Sixers are current leaders of the Big Bash League with Sydney Thunder right behind. A win for Thunder in this match could see the table being reshuffled again and the two teams exchanging places.
Sydney Thunder vs Sydney Sixers BBL 2020-21 is going to be played at the Manuka Oval, Canberra on the 13th of January 2021.
Sydney Thunder was overpowered by the Perth Scorchers in its previous match. It did not play too badly, though. The bowlers got a decent start and Sam Billings looked in great touch as he scored 83 in the middle.
A few adjustments are all that is needed for a team that has done very well in this season of the Big Bash so far.
Alex Hales and Usman Khawaja lead a very strong batting lineup with Callum Ferguson, Sam Billings, Alex Ross, and Ben Cutting to follow. The team seems to have moved on from Oliver Davies in the lower-middle order for the time being but he could get another chance if Ross keeps failing.
Alex Hales is going to be crucial to the success of Sydney Thunder in these latter matches and the team would be hoping he hits his best form now.
The bowling is pretty decent. It is spin-heavy and so Tanveer Sangha and Chris Green are going to play a big part. We could even see a third spinner slot in depending upon the conditions.
Adam Milne, Brendan Doggett, and Nathan McAndrew are the other bowlers in the attack with support from Ben Cutting as needed.
A very well-balanced lineup that will be aiming for the title this season.

The Sydney Sixers continue to win close matches as Dan Christian pulled off a heist against Brisbane Heat in the previous match. This has been the tsory of this season for the Sixers as one or more of their players are putting in extraordinary performances to help it win matches it should have lost easily!
Now, it is up against a tough challenge in the Sydney Thunder.
Like Thunder, Sixers also have a strong batting lineup. Josh Philippe, Jack Edwards, James Vince, Daniel Hughes, and Jordan SIlk are a formidable bunch to come up against. There is a lot of power, depth, and experience here.
We have yet to add Daniel Christian and Carlos Brathwaite to the mix as well!
There is no doubt that the Sixers have a stronger batting lineup than Thunder.
The bowling is a bit iffy as Jake Ball continues to disappoint and the bulk of the work is being done by all-rounders. Carlos Brathwaite had a good game in the previous match but he is not too dependable in terms of consistency. Similarly, Dan Christian can be quite expensive as well.
Lloyd Pope and Steve O’Keeffe had a decent game last time around and could be a threat at the Manuka Oval.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. The Manuka Oval has been very good for batsmen and setting a target may be the way to go since the pitch is not going to change at all over the course of the match.

There is no rain predicted for match day and so we should be able to have a good game to enjoy. The pitch at the Manuka Oval has been very good for T20 cricket this entire season. The pace of the wicket is good and the boundaries are short but there is also just a little bit of help for the spinners.
A score of around 170 should be seen as par at this venue.
We think the Sydney Sixers hold a slight edge in this contest. Not too much, though, and so the game could be very close. Their batting is a bit more unpredictable but has more depth. Also, the bowling seems to be similar to what Sydney Thunder possesses. Both teams are in good form as well!
