Sydney Thunder vs Perth Scorchers Betting Tips 28/12/2021

Zohaib Ahmed, Senior Author

The 24th match of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Sydney Thunder take on Perth Scorchers on Dec 28 (Tuesday) at Manuka Oval in Canberra. The match is to begin at 1:45pm IST.

Teams Status

Sydney Thunder

On Boxing Day, the lesser Sydney side was yet again reminded that it is, indeed, lesser than its far more illustrious city rival.

The Sydney Smash, as it’s called, was won by the Sixers, who were depleted by the Thunder could still not beat them.

In a rain-shortened 16-over match, the Thunder managed to see the back of in-form Sixers openers Josh Philippe early but were then frustrated by two Sixers players who had been quite so far this BBL.

Daniel Hughes smashed a 26-ball 50 and Dan Christian was even more devastating in his 17-ball 41. Chasing 168 was a tall task but there was hope as the Sixers were missing several of their key bowlers. However, the Thunder lost opener Matthew Gilkes and kept on losing wickets at regular intervals, and although they kept pace with the run rate, they ran out of wickets and capable batsmen in the end.

Jason Sangha top-scored for the Thunder with 47 off 30 while Daniel Sams contributed a whirlwind 11-ball 28 as the Thunder fell short by 30 runs.

Perth Scorchers

Perth Scorchers made it six wins out of six matches with a Boxing Day besting of Melbourne Renegades, and are now four points clear at the top of the table.

Just as was the case in the first match against the Renegades a few days ago, Mitchell Marsh was the player of the match. Not only did he bowl three suffocating overs and pick up a wicket, he then expertly guided the run chase alongside Colin Munro, who outscored him with a 58 off 32 but Marsh still got the nod for the best player due to his all-round effort.

The Scorchers are now officially a juggernaut and stopping them would take some doing. Their players feature high both on the batting and bowling charts and are showing no signs of slowing down.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Perth Scorchers to win @ 1.668

During their perfect run, we made the mistake of doubting Perth once. We are not going to repeat the same mistake until there is an actual sign of complacency or attrition. Perth are the best side in the competition right now and so we back them to turn their Perfect 6 to Perfect 7. The odds have been sourced from Paripesa.

Tip: Jason Sangha to score more than 18.5 runs @ 1.87

Sydney youngster Jason Sangha has had a superb start to his campaign, with back-to-back knocks of 39 and 47 in the last two games. He even managed a healthy strike rate in both those outings and showed enough promise for us to back him here. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


The Scorchers have lost three of their last five games to the Thunder. They did win their last encounter, which was played earlier this year. Colin Munro and the Scorchers’ tail had done the heavy lifting that day. We see a repeat of that result.
