Who will win Sydney Thunder vs Hobart Hurricanes?

All aspects of the game are working beautifully for the Sydney Thunder at the moment. 6 wins in a row has them sitting second on the table, with the majority of those wins coming in dominant fashion.

Over that 6-game stretch they have batted first 4 times for an average score of 192. On the 2 occasions they've chased, they've lost just 4 wickets in total and got home with a combined 29 balls to spare. They are conceding on average just 8-138 with Muhammad Hasnain a great addition to that attack.

The Hurricanes have the potential to be the competition's highest scoring team, with explosive top-order batting. They also have versatile bowling and could definitely pose a threat if they hang on to their spot in the finals.

The Thunder have the hot hand though, with this type of winning streak quite rare in a competition that lends itself to inconsistency. They might be the best team in it and another win here will go a long way to proving it.
