 Key Players: 

 THU Key Players: 

Alex Hales:
Found form at just the right time at the top of the order, scoring 85, 63, 47 and 60 in his last four innings. His most recent knock took him past the 500-run mark for this year’s BBL.

Daniel Sams:
Top of the wicket-taking charts, the all-rounder claimed two more scalps in the win against Hobart and has now taken 27 in 15 matches.

Chris Morris:
Claimed 3-27 last time out to move to 18 wickets for the season, continuing to prove his quality with ball. He now has 255 wickets in 203 T20 innings.

 STR Key Players: 

Phil Salt:
The big-hitting opener has found some good form in recent matches, scoring 59 and 66 in the final two league games. He hit four half-centuries and 356 runs in total.

Rashid Khan:
Going into the playoffs, only two bowlers had taken more wickets than the Afghan leg-spinner’s 18 for the season.

Peter Siddle:
The paceman has 17 wickets, just one behind Rashid Khan from one game less, and is relatively economical too.

 Team Forms: 

 Sydney Thunder: 

With Alex Hales in fine form, Sydney Thunder have returned to winning form just in time. First they beat Perth Scorchers in a rain-reduced match – reaching 97/3 in 11.4 overs thanks to Hales’ 47 from 27 balls to claim victory with two balls to spare.

Then, Hales hit 60 and shared a century partnership with Usman Khawaja in a total of 197/5 in the Eliminator against Hobart Hurricanes. Jonathan Cook then claimed 4-21 and Chris Morris 3-27 as they bowled the Hurricanes out for 140 in reply.

 Adelaide Strikers: 

Adelaide Strikers won four consecutive matches to charge up the table, most recently beating Perth Scorchers by 16 runs after Phil Salt’s 59 helped them to 181/5. Their momentum was halted in their final league game, however – losing by ten runs to Hobart Hurricanes despite posting 207/8.

Salt hit 66 from 33 balls at the top of the order, but the massive target proved too much, despite the Strikers reaching their highest ever BBL score.

Sydney Thunder: Usman Khawaja, Alex Hales, Callum Ferguson(c), Alex Ross, Chris Morris, Daniel Sams, Arjun Nair, Jay Lenton(w), Chris Tremain, Jonathan Cook, Brendan Doggett, Liam Bowe, Nathan McAndrew.
