Adelaide Strikers Team News & Playing 11
The Strikers will look to Travis Head, Colin Ingram and Jake Weatherald to deliver the goods with the bat. Head did a terrific job in the BBL 05 with his explosive hitting and the team will need him to fire if they are to challenge the Thunder in this match. Billy Stanlake and legspinner Rashid Khan will be the ones to watch out for in this bowling attack. Rashid was very impressive in this year’s IPL and he could trouble the opposition here with his tricks.

They have a lot of depth in their batting with Jos Buttler and Shane Watson being key figures at the top. There will be high expectations on Watson who smashed 77 off 46 balls to guide the Thunder to victory against the Sixers in the opening game. Mitchell McClenaghan will lead the team’s pace attack while Fawad Ahmed will be the go-to option when it comes to spin. Both took two wickets each against the Sixers and the team will want them to continue their good form.

Sydney Thunder have got off to a good start this season with a five-wicket win over Sydney Sixers in the opening game.
