Head to Head

 

A close game is expected when the Hurricanes and Thunder meet in Launceston on Saturday night. The team from Tassie has won five of six matches against their Sydney rival and averages a solid 149 with the bat against the men in lime green. However, the Thunder did claim victory in the last clash between the pair and have shown glimpses of promise this year in beating the Sixers and running the Heat all the way at the Gabba.

 

Key stat:

 

The Hurricanes have won four of their five matches against the Thunder in Tasmania.

 

High Bat

 

It is very hard to look beyond George Bailey at very generous $4.50 odds. The ex-Test batsman will be playing in his home town of Launceston and has been one of the form players of the season, notching up scores of 25, 71, 2, 86, 106 and 59 across his last six innings (all formats). For the Thunder, Callum Ferguson made his return from injury last game, making a solid 26-ball 37. At a price pushing out to $5.50, the right-hand bat is well worth considering.

 

Key stat: In his five matches against the Thunder, George Bailey averages 187 with a highest score of 69*.

 

Tip:

 

Hurricanes to win and George Bailey to be their top scorer.
