Match 12 of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2020 sees Sydney Thunder take on the Perth Scorchers at the Manuka Oval on Tuesday.
The Thunder come into this game on the back of a sensational win over Brisbane Heat. Despite their top order failing against Jack Wildermuth, Daniel Sams came up with a performance for the ages to hand them their first win of the season. Likewise, they would love to sustain their momentum with another win on Tuesday.
On the other hand, the Scorchers don't have a win to their name this season with their previous game being washed out. Nevertheless, they have shown glimpses of what they are capable of with both bat and ball. A lot will ride on the shoulders of captain Ashton Turner and Jhye Richardson, both of whom have excelled this season.
Although both teams look equally matched on paper, the Thunder holds the edge with momentum on its side. Either way, we should be in for a cracking game of cricket in the BBL on Tuesday.

Match: Sydney Thunder vs Perth Scorchers, Match 12
Date: 22nd December 2020, at 1:45 PM IST
Venue: Manuka Oval, Canberra
The pitch at the Manuka Oval is a decent one to bat on with some help available for the bowlers as well. While the pacers should get the ball to swing early on, the spinners should come into play as the match progresses.
Teams would look to make use of the powerplay with the field restrictions on. Although the ball should skid on nicely under the lights, the pitch isn't expected to change much during the game. Both teams will look to bat first with 150-160 being a good total at this venue.
