Cricket Match Preview:
The party in Big Bash League will continue with the 22nd game of cricket between Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Sixers. Both teams are currently in the middle of the points table, with Strikers being at number two position and Sydney Sixers at number four position. The only factor differentiating the two sides is the net run rate. Currently, Adelaide Strikers have a positive run rate while Sydney Sixers have a negative run rate.
Adelaide Strikers continued their winning run by defeating Melbourne Renegades in their fifth game of cricket. In almost every game of cricket, there is a new hero emerging for them and that is a wonderful sign for any cricket team. On this occasion, it was Jake Weatherald who scored 71 off 44 deliveries and propelled Strikers to 158 runs.
Sydney Sixers, led by Moises Henriques, continued their good run in the tournament as well. They won their last game of cricket against Brisbane Heat by 5 wickets. Chasing the big score of 164 runs, they were helped by some good knocks by Moises Henriques and Jordan Silk, who scored 57 and 46 runs respectively.
Sydney Sixers batsmen will be preparing for Rashid Khan as he is a main threat to them. They have a fine player of spin bowling in Moises Henriques. He has played in the IPL for Sunrisers Hyderabad and has a good record against the spin bowling in the cricket tournament. He will have to take extra responsibility if Sixers have to win the cricket game against Adelaide.
Adelaide Strikers would be pleased with how they have managed to put their campaign back on track. They are the defending champions of the tournament and they are now playing like one. With Hobart Hurricanes already doing well and settled at number one position, Adelaide Strikers would like to make the number two position as their own.
Cricket Match Information:

The only thing differentiating the two teams is the net run rate, where Adelaide Strikers are on number two position and Sydney Sixers are on number four position.
Probable XI (Our Prediction):
Adelaide Strikers, after a fair start, began to fall away a little. However, they restricted their slide by winning the game of cricket against Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Renegades. Our prediction is they will continue with the same playing eleven as their last game.
Here is our prediction of Adelaide Strikers’ playing XI:
- Alex Carey
- J Weatherhald
- Colin Ingram
- JW Wells
- JS Lehmann
- MG Neser
- C Valente
- MW Short
- Ben Laughlin
- Rashid Khan
- Billy Stanlanke
Probable XI (Our Prediction):
Sydney Sixers have come back with a win after losing two consecutive games of cricket. Our prediction is they will go with the same playing eleven as their last game of cricket.
Here is our prediction of Sydney Sixers’ playing XI:
- JL Denly
- Daniel Hughes
- Moises Henriques
- J Avendano
- Josh Philippe
- Tom Curran
- Stephen O’Keefe
- JC Silk
- Sean Abbott
- Ben Dwarshuis
- BAD Manenti
Cricket Statistics and Prediction:
Tom Curran has been fantastic for Sydney Sixers. His personal battle against Rashid Khan will go a long way in deciding the outcome of this game of cricket. Our prediction is Tom Curran will hold his own in a game of cricket against Adelaide Strikers.
Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:
Adelaide Oval has always been a batting paradise. However, the drop-in pitch was not too easy to bat on in the test cricket game between India and Australia. Our prediction is of a score of around 160 by the team batting first in this cricket game. Conditions are expected to be dry.
Adelaide Strikers will begin the game of cricket as the favourites. They are coming into this cricket game after their win against Melbourne Renegades. While Sydney Sixers are coming into this game of cricket as winners too, Strikers just seem to have a better balance than Sydney Sixers. Hence, our prediction is of Strikers’ win.

Colin Ingram (AS) – 50+ runs
Top Bowler (Prediction):
Tom Curran (SS) – 2 or more wickets
