Sydney Thunder vs Sydney Sixers

The pace off the surface made it difficult to hit through or across the line as the pitch began to grip and turn much more. As a result, the Thunder suffered greatly. Despite persisting for a considerable amount of time, David Warner's timing never seemed to click. Following that, the rest of the batting wasted chances to get in and score big runs due to the frequent loss of wickets. However, the home team's bowling and fielding were exceptional, to say the least. Todd Murphy and Steve O'Keefe's finger-spinners were challenging to handle, and all of the seamers' shifts in pace from slow to fast to slow to fast worked wonders. Especially on the ground, catching and fielding were flawless.

Steve Smith's outstanding batting performance makes him the player of the game. He used his extraordinary batting abilities to turn a 130–140 wicket into a 180 one. He isn't really being helped by his problematic back, so the Sixers would be wise to give him some rest before the playoffs going forward. Sydney Thunder still have work to do if they want to finally crack the top 5, as they are currently on 12 points and trail the Sydney Sixers, who are currently in second place with 19 points.

Sydney Thunder - Matthew Gilkes, Chris Green, Jason Sangha, Baxter Holt, Alex Hales, Brendan Doggett, Oliver Davies, David Willey, Nathan McAndrew, Rilee Rossouw, Alex Ross, David Warner, Daniel Sams, Tanveer Sangha.

Sydney Sixers - Jackson Bird, Steve O'Keefe, Ben Dwarshuis, Dan Christian, Jordan Silk, Daniel Hughes, Hayden Kerr, Nathan Lyon, James Vince, Moises Henriques, Kurtis Patterson, Sean Abbott, Chris Jordan, Izharulhaq Naveed, Josh Philippe.
