SYT vs PRS pitch report: How will surface at Sydney Showground Stadium play in BBL clash?

The Showground stadium hosted the Sydney Smash on December 30 between the Thunder and the Sixers earlier this season. But that game ended in no result which is why all the eyes are on the pitch on offer for this encounter.

The 30th match of the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL) season is set to take place between Sydney Thunder and Perth Scorchers. The season is in its second half already and the race for the playoffs is heating up. While the Scorchers are sitting pretty at the third place with nine points from six matches, the Thunder are in a must-win situation with only three points to show for their efforts in six outings. The match is scheduled to take place at the Sydney Showground Stadium, the venue that has hosted only one match this season, between the Thunder and Sixers which ended in no result.

Sydney Showground Stadium Pitch Report

Sydney Thunder posted 151 runs for the loss of seven wickets in the last game that was played at this venue. In response, the Sixers reached 34/1 in four overs before rain intervened and play never resumed. The pitch on offer was a tad two-paced and bowlers with variations in pace were successful. It remains to be seen, if the surface will be decent for batters this time around.

Last season, the venue hosted five matches and apart from Brisbane Heat who smashed 203 runs, no other team could cross the 140-run mark batting first. Perhaps, Sydney Thunder registered the lowest total in BBL history getting bowled out for just 15 runs while chasing 140 runs.
