Adelaide Strikers

Adelaide Strikers are being led by Alex Carrey in this season. He will be able to lead only for the initial part of the tournament as Australia are supposed to tour India next month and he is expected to be part of it. 

Strikers have so far been excellent with the bat, but they have lost a couple of cricket games where they could not defend the high score posted by their batsmen. Going forward, they will have to address the issue as Rashid Khan should not be expected to bail them out every time. 

Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game. 

Here is our prediction of Adelaide Strikers’ playing XI:

  • Alex Carey
  • Rashid Khan
  • Wes Agar
  • Phil Salt
  • Cameron White
  • Billy Stanlake 
  • Jake Weatherald
  • JW Wells
  • MW Short
  • Peter Siddle
  • C Valente

Sydney Sixers

Sydney Sixers are being led by Moises Henriques in this season. He did not lead the side in the last game due to the birth of his child. 

Sydney Sixers won their last game against Adelaide Strikers in a handsome manner having chased down a total of 176 runs. Sixers won the game by seven wickets in the last over courtesy of a fine knock from Josh Philippe. 

Englishmen Tom Curran and James Vince have been terrific for Sydney Sixers and have been carrying the team on their shoulders. 

Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.  

Here is our prediction of Sydney Sixers’ playing XI:

  • DP Hughes
  • JR Philippe
  • JM Vince
  • J Avendado
  • JC Silk
  • J Edwards
  • TK Curran
  • BAD Manenti
  • BJ Dwarshuis
  • Jackson Bird

Expert Prediction: AS vs SS

The ninth season of Big Bash League has reached an exciting stage. Most of the sides have now played a reasonable number of games. Various permutations and combinations have begun to emerge for the sides to qualify for the playoffs. Adelaide and Sydney are amongst those teams who are favourites to qualify for the playoffs at this stage. While Adelaide are at the fourth spot, Sydney are firmly placed at the second spot.

This year, the tournament will be played over a period of 42 days and a total number of five teams will have the chance to qualify for the finals, instead of the usual four teams. 

As per the new format, the teams finishing in the top two will be rewarded for their consistency, unlike in previous seasons. While the winner of the ‘qualifier’ played between the top two teams will reach the final straightaway, the loser will play the ‘challenger’ against the winner of the ‘knockout’ which is going to be played between the side that finished third and winner of the ‘eliminator’.

The Eliminator is a newly introduced knockout feature, which will be played between the teams finishing at number fourth and fifth on the points table. Hence, out of the eight teams, five teams will have a chance to play the final and win the tournament.

In the last five encounters between Sixers and Strikers, Sixers have been the winner on three occasions while Strikers have won two cricket matches.  

Our prediction is of a win for Adelaide Strikers. They would be hurting from their loss in the last game and would be looking to get back to winning ways at their home ground. 

Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will definitely look to bowl first as the T20 game is hugely a chase-friendly format. Hence, irrespective of the conditions, our prediction is that the team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
