Big Bash League 2022-23 Match 22

Big Bash League 2022-23  Match 22 by 11ic

Match 22 of the Big Bash League 2022–23 will feature a showdown between the Sydney Thunder and Hobart Hurricanes. The Chris Green-led Sydney Thunder are slowly but surely moving up the ladder after defeating the Brisbane Heat twice in a row. To advance further in the championship, the Thunder must defeat the teams in good form. They are listed in the table as fifth. In their previous match, the Thunder defeated the Heat by 11 runs despite Colin Munro's 98-run knock off 53 balls giving them a serious scare. With a score of 36 off 15 and two wickets, Daniel Sams was named Player of the Match.

With a net run rate of -0.378, the Hurricanes are currently sixth in the points table. They have won two games despite not being at their best. The Hurricanes enter the game after an eight-run victory over the Melbourne Renegades. The Hurricanes struggled to 122 runs in 18 overs after opting to bat first, and their batters significantly underperformed. James Neesham scored 28 runs off 19 balls while batting first. The Renegades were then stopped by Riley Meredith and Shadab Khan, who each took three wickets.

Hobart Hurricanes vs Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder won by 62 runs

The Hurricanes' challenge to the Thunder as they pursued a massive 229 gave the Thunder a scare. With a huge total to work with after Alex Hales and Oliver Davies propelled them along with the bat, the hosts were always in need of a couple of wickets. Hobart captain Matthew Wade used a variety of ramp shots to hit three sixes off his first five deliveries, so the loss of D'Arcy Short turned out to be a blessing in disguise. While Caleb Jewell was barely moving forward at the other end, he made some sort of statement and attacked every bowler in his path. Wade's 19-ball half-century kept the game squarely in the balance, and the Hurricanes' decision to promote Tim David was a blatant sign that they intended to attack with everything they had.

Even though David wasn't quite at his best, he had to swing hard to take advantage of his power and these brief straight boundaries. He got going, but Wade sliced one to backward point, causing him some confusion. Even after examining it from different perspectives, the TV umpire determined that it was a clean hit and not a bump ball, which ended up being the game's turning point. The writing was on the wall once James Neesham left and David was run out thanks to a superb throw from replacement fielder Joel Davies. He only swung hard for a very brief cameo.

The Domino Effect was in full force as wickets fell one after another like ninepins. Ben Cutting responded with two of his own wickets, including the crucial one of Wade off just his second delivery after Brendan Doggett, who had returned with four wickets, had played his first game of the tournament. The Hurricanes, however, had a miserable outcome as they fell from 141/4 to 166 all out. As the new year approaches, they must quickly put this in the past and put on a united front. The Thunder are on a hot streak of three victories and will want to maintain it in 2023, so that 15 all-out mishap seems like a long time ago. Hobart Hurricanes lost to Sydney Thunder by a score of 62.
