Sydney Thunder will welcome David Warner into the squad and he will be available at least until the end of this month. Overseas batters Alex Hales and Rilee Rossouw have ended their stint as they departed to play in other T20 leagues. Alex Hales ended his tournament on a disappointing note after bagging a duck against Sydney Sixers and they went on to lose the match by 7 wickets. Sam Whiteman who played his first game of the competition, scored useful 42 runs at a strike rate of 123.52. They just had a bad day with the bat that cost them immensely. David Warner’s presence will definitely boost the batting line-up for sure. With 5 wins and 4 losses, they are placed in the 4th spot in the standings with 10 points.
Perth Scorchers are showing pure class in all aspects of the game which is producing incredible results for them in this tournament. They thrashed Brisbane Heat in their last game by 8 wickets, thanks to an unbeaten 132* runs partnership for the 3rd wicket between Aaron Hardie and Josh Inglis. The bowlers were clinical in the first half and restricted the opposition to marginal 155 runs on the board with Jason Behrendorff standing tall and picking up 3 wickets. They still maintain the pole position in the standings with 14 points.
