Sydney Thunder vs Hobart Hurricanes Betting Tips 13/01/2022

Zohaib Ahmed, Senior Author

The 47th fixture of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Sydney Thunder host Hobart Hurricanes at Sydney Showground Stadium on Jan 13 (Thursday). The match is to begin at 10:15am IST.

Teams Status

Sydney Thunder

Since losing to Sydney Sixers on Boxing Day, Sydney Thunder have won six straight matches and have soared to second spot in the points table behind only Perth Scorchers.

What’s scary is that none of those half a dozen victories has even been close. Just in their last game they nonchalantly crushed Hobart Hurricanes – no slouches themselves – by nine wickets.

Their suffocative bowling first allowed Hobart only 139 runs, to which they got to comfortably, thanks to Alex Hales’ unbeaten 80 off 56, with stand-in captain Jason Sangha contributing 35* off 31.

Truth be told, right now there is no better team than the Thunder in the league. They have explosive yet reliable batters and in-form pacers to go with a tricky legspin duo. There is no stopping them presently.

Hobart Hurricanes

Hobart Hurricanes get a swift chance to avenge their defeat to the Thunder on Monday but there are no guarantees that it’s going to be any easier the second time around.

There is one good and one bad news for the Hurricanes. The good news being that their wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade has made himself available for this game after taking a mini-break. The bad news is that Harry Brook has been called up by England selectors and his BBL stint has effectively ended.

Wade’s return means that Ben McDermott will now have able company again up top, although the leftie had appeared out of sorts before taking his break.

Having won just one of their last four matches, the Hurricanes would be hoping for a consistent run of good results before the playoffs.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Sydney Thunder to win @ 1.61

Sydney Thunder are in such great form that even though we were momentarily tempted by Hobart at underdog odds, we resisted and now lean back towards Sydney. As already explained, the Thunder are just way too strong than everyone else right now. They will be weakened when Mohammad Hasnain departs for PSL but he is still with them for a bit. The odds have been sourced from Paripesa.

Tip: Alex Hales to score more than 24.5 runs @ 1.87

The Haylestorm was a bit late but it has now begun. The Thunder batter has returned scores of 26, 63 and 80* in his last three innings. The English run machine has warmed up and it should, as per our estimation, keep on producing the goods. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


The Thunder are clear favourites. The only way the Hurricanes can spring a surprise is if their openers go berserk, which we know they are capable of. Sans that, a seventh Sydney win is likely.
