New Years’ Eve turns blue in Adelaide.

In even better news for the locals, the Adelaide Strikers enter the annual NYE clash in terrific form. They have won their past three matches, and have held their nerve in crucial moments in all three games.

Sydney Thunder have been a tad unlucky. The smoke against the Strikers earlier this season put a halt on a game they were ahead in, before a heartbreaking loss against the Sixers. Can they spoil the Adelaide New Years’ party?

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • Alex Carey is the current top-scorer in BBL09 (186). Also, he scores well vs Sydney Thunder: 44 (26), 34 (28), 59 (40) and 45 (40).

  • Rashid Khan enjoys playing the Thunder. His performances against them before this season: 2/22, 2/21, 2/34 and 2/21.

  • Jake Weatherald’s last two scores in NYE matches: 8 and 11. However, his form in BBL09 has been very promising (152 runs in four games).

Key to an Adelaide Strikers win

Plenty rests on the shoulders of the Thunder top three. Usman Khawaja, Alex Hales and Callum Ferguson are key wickets, and if the Strikers can pick up at least two cheaply, the game opens up. Keep an eye out for Wes Agar, Rashid Khan and Peter Siddle as a trio.

Also, can Alex Carey continue his strong record vs Thunder? With a lowest score of 34 in four games, the Strikers will be keen for their skipper to deliver the goods in an important, with the likes of Phil Salt, Jake Weatherald and Jono Wells making key contributions.
