Sydney Thunder have won eight matches and lost three so far, bagging 30 points in the tournament. They have a good net run rate on their side which can help them to top the points table going into the business end of the tournament.
Jason Sangha recently took over the captaincy duties and he has done an exceptional job as a skipper with his team selection and field placements. It would be exciting to watch how they fare going into the final few league games.
