Sydney Thunder will lock horns with the Sydney Sixers in Match 38 of the Big Bash League 2020-21. The THU vs SIX match is scheduled to begin at 1:45 pm IST (7:15 pm AEDT) from the Manuka Oval, Canberra on January 13, 2021. Here is our THU vs SIX Dream11 prediction, THU vs SIX Dream11 team and THU vs SIX Dream11 top picks.
Canberra will host what is set to possibly be one of the most high octane fixtures of the 2020-21 season of the Big Bash League - the Sydney Smash. It won't be just any old Sydney Derby too, as the Sydney Sixers and the Sydney Thunder currently occupy the top two spots on the BBL 2020-21 points table. Defending Champions, Sydney Sixers are looking right on track to defend their title and become the second team - after the Perth Scorchers - to win two consecutive, and three overall titles.
The side bounced back well after their horrendous 86-run loss to the Scorchers last week, but having lost two of their last five games, they will have to get back in form to take on the experienced Sydney Thunder side. Despite having the same number of wins as the Sixers and a better net run rate, Callum Ferguson and his Sydney Thunder side are at the second place on the points table. Under the new BBL rules, it seems that Sydney Thunder have missed out on two points from the Bash Boost.
They too, will be coming into this game having lost two of their last five games - further proof that the two teams could not be more equally matched up. The last match between the two teams ended with a 4-run victory for Sydney Thunder. This will be the teams' first meeting this season.
