The Thunder Academy will take on the Hobart Hurricanes Academy on Thursday (2.30pm start) at Pratten Park in the final of the Quadrangular Series.
Thunder finished top of the group, after beating the Lahore Qalandars, Sydney Sixers Academy and the Hobart Hurricanes Academy in the group games, with the Hurricanes only suffering a defeat to the Thunder.
Damien Mortimer comes into the squad after being named as 12th man in the Academy’s previous game against the Lahore Qalandars while Harmon Sandhu and Tamid Islam could make their debut for the side as Nathan McAndrew and Liam Hatcher are unavailable.
Tamid Islam was selected after impressing during the Bangladesh round of the MoneyGram Thunder Nation Cup.
The game will be streamed live on cricket.com.au with the link being posted on Sydney Thunder’s Facebook and Twitter accounts ahead of the first ball.
