THU vs HUR 22th Match Probable winners:
The two teams are in the bottom half of the points table and need to string a few wins in quick time to challenge for the top spots. Sydney Thunder have won three of the last five encounters between the two sides but Hurricanes lead the rivalry by 10-7. Both teams are coming off a win but the Hurricanes have an edge due to their bowling attack. On potential and performance, It is one of the top two bowling attacks in the competition. Add to that the Thunder batting unit doesn’t have depth and is vulnerable to collapses. We predict Hurricanes to win this clash on Saturday. Considering the team combination, Hobart Hurricanes is expected to win this match.
