THU vs HUR Dream11 Prediction: Both Sydney Thunder and Hobart Hurricanes have had torrid runs in the ongoing edition of BBL and will be expected to go all-in at Showground Stadium. Sydney Thunder, inspite of possessing the likes of Callum Ferguson, Usman Khawaja and Daniel Sams in the top-form has been failing to dominate the rivals so far.
The Men in Green, as they say, have suffered defeats in their last three matches and will probably wish to avoid a fourth amidst the home conditions at Showground. Banking on the performances of their top-order, the hosts would look to put up a truckload of runs in the coming T20 considering the 160 is the average first innings total wicket amidst the conditions of Showground Stadium.
Meanwhile, Hobart Hurricanes who looked promising at the start of the season seem to have lost out the winning momentum in the last five matches. Neither their batting nor their bowling had managed to wreak rampage and with ace all-rounder Darcy Short and paceman Riley Meredith nowhere in the picture, one could say Hurricanes as the weaker side in contention as both the competing side lock horns for their first clash of the season.
