In a crucial clash, the struggling Sydney Thunder (THU), languishing at 7th place on the points tally, are set to take on Adelaide Strikers (STR), who are still in contention for a top 4 finish, at the Manuka Oval, on Sunday, January 14. The Thunder's lacklustre campaign has been a tale of disappointment, with their lone triumph against the higher-ranked Melbourne Stars being a rare bright spot. On the flip side, the Strikers have surged in the latter part of the season, securing victory in their last three matches after enduring four consecutive defeats.

This encounter will hold immense significance for the Strikers, as they strive to secure a coveted top 4 spot. The return of the talismanic David Warner has injected renewed hope into the Thunder’s camp, as they aim to salvage some pride in their final outing. However, with the Melbourne Stars breathing down their necks and two matches still in hand, the Adelaide Strikers face a formidable task – clinching victory in this match to accumulate 11 points, their best possible outcome.

Weatherald, stepping in for the injured Chris Lynn at No. 3, remained unbeaten as the Strikers comfortably chased down 168 runs with 25 balls to spare and eight wickets in hand in Strikers' last outing.
