THU vs STR Pitch Report

Sydney Showground Stadium, Sydney, isn’t popular for the high-scoring games. The 170+ totals are generally known as defendable at this T20 venue. However, this T20 venue has also experienced some strong personal batting performances, including Colin Munro’s century in BBL 11.

While the pacers have good records at this venue, spinners also play some useful roles.
