It's all happening in the world of Cricket and even the Women's Big Bash League is not untouched by the controversies. Emily Smith was recently banned for three months for putting out playing XI on social media, leaving Hobard Hurricanes in a bit of disarray. Hobart Hurricanes are already languishing at the bottom of the table and a controversy is the last thing they would have wanted. Right above them are Sydney Thunder, who are fighting for surival in their competition. The Thunder will be up against Adelaide Strikers Women in their upcoming encounter, which is to be played on 20th November in Wollongong.
Thunder reigned this year's Women's Big Bash League ladder for more than quarter of the tournament, but are slowly falling behind the rest of the pack. The have already played ten matches in the tournament and have just four wins to their name. Although a win in this upcoming fixture will push them to the fourth spot, with eleven points, they'd need the results of the other teams to go in Thunder's favor.
The downfall of Sydney Thunder in this tournament can be illustrated by the fact that they have not emerged on top in any of their last four completed matches. They have repeatedly failed to notch up par scores and that has been the primary reason for their losses in three out of those last four matches that the Thunder have lost.
In thier last match, their batsmen failed to overhaul a total of even 129 and eventually got folded for just 96. Thier batting did similarly against the Sixers as well as the Scorchers wherein they were restricted to just 112 and 116 in the respective matches. All in all, Sydney Thunder have done reasonably well with the ball, but have failed miserably with the bat in their last few matches and if they can address that, they would be a force to reckon with.

Unlike Thunder, the Strikers have managed to keep their lead in the competition and are comfortably placed at the second spot on the points table with 12 points to their name. Also, they have played a game less than Brisbane Heat and are pretty much in contention to claim the top spot at the ladder.
The Strikers are coming off a couple of strong wins, both over Melbourne Stars, and have the momentum with them. In the previous match, their bowlers sealed the deal as they restricted Stars to just 96 runs defending a total of 153.
Barring a couple of games in their last five, the Strikers have looked invincible. Both their batting and bowling has looked in pristine form in the tournament so far and would certainly present a tough challenge to the Thunder, who are in prime form at the moment.

It's an important fixture for both the sides, albeit for different reasons. While a win for Thunder will keep them in the tournament, the Strikers would want to win this match to get to the top of the points table. Comparing the two teams on paper and on the basis of recent performances, it's a no-brainer to bet on Adelaide Strikers in the upcoming fixture.
