Double header tomorrow
Thunder v hurricanes
Scorchers v sixers
Two home wins for me thunder and hurricanes met only two days ago thunder winning easily and scorchers joint top sixers yet to register a point

i was at the game last night, strikers bowled v well and took 9 good wickets :-)

heat let them off the hook a bit in the field but the pitch looked a tricky one so the strikers total was a lot better than it seemed at the time

great atmosphere and yet another good big bash evening

bound to be a few result surprises now as the comp opens up a bit although I agree that sixers/hurricanes look poor (had sixers down as last pre tourney)

expect strikers to do what they have done previously, flatter a bit then blow out late on... we shall see, would be good to have a final at the AO

scorchers look ominously strong still.. heat need to get it together as they can still be a major threat

value was with the visitors in both games, there is usually a turn around in form during the comp, the odd 'daft' result you could say

almost got both tonight but sixers let themselves down a bit at the end after putting on a good show, no idea why abbott continually gets the ball at the end, shoddy bowling again from him

Yeah they did bowl well but are you saying Lynn was out because he clearly missed the ball

Sorry gecko my bad I see Melbourne stars have lost their usual 3 opening games if history repeats itself they should start winning now but I wouldn't count on it they look in disarray at the minute

I'm a Sixers fan, but I can't see them winning again tomorrow. O'keefe is out along with the missing Henriques. Daniel Hughes is also having a late fitness test. Renegades have also had a decent start.

1.57 Renegades
2.5 Sixers

Anyone brave enough to bet on the Sixers tomorrow?

@gecko6 you're making me jealous, getting to a game or two! The atmosphere must have been fantastic. Hope you are keeping well.

I am all over your strikers today gecko
Hobart hurricanes v Adelaide strikers
Hobart have had real trouble in the bowling department before their win over a poor thunder latest they had taken only 11 wickets in 3 games and this could be a chance for the strikers openers to make hay Carey only hit 2 in the last game but top scored in the two previous games with 44 and 83 against the 2 Sydney teams and could be the answer

Strikers win
Carey man of the match

Renegades v stars in a derby tomorrow and I think Kevin pieterson will stand up to the plate for a must win game for the stars 7/1 mom looks worth a try and a stars win for me .
