– Pitch Report
Manuka Oval (Canberra) will host this 38th match of the BBL 10, where Sydney Thunder will face Sydney Sixers. This venue has already hosted six matches in this BBL season. In those matches, while the first batting sides won thrice, the chasing teams also claimed three victories.
In the last two matches at this venue, in late December 2020, the first batting teams (Sydney Thunder in both occasions) scored 200+ totals and claimed big victories. Though we have experienced one successful 179 runs chasing at this venue in this BBL season, the 170+ totals are seeming very challenging at this T20 venue.
Moreover, while Australia is moving towards the late summer, the chasing is going to be more difficult at this venue due to slow pitches.
Though Sydney Thunder suffered a victory at Manuka Oval (Canberra) in their first game of this tournament, then they have claimed four consecutive wins at this venue. Meanwhile, Sydney Sixers will play their first match at this venue in this season.
