Sydney Sixers

Sydney Sixers are being led by Moises Henriques in this season. They are currently extremely well-placed in the second position on the points table. 

After winning the super over contest against Sydney Thunder, Sixers won their next cricket game against Melbourne Renegades. In that game, Sixers had to chase down a total of 154 runs, which they did quite comfortably in the end in the final over by six wickets. 

Englishmen Tom Curran and James Vince have been terrific for Sydney Sixers and 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
  • MC Henriques
  • JC Silk
  • J Edwards
  • TK Curran
  • BAD Manenti
  • BJ Dwarshuis
  • Jackson Bird
  • L Pope

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 played five games of cricket, four of which were complete, and one was abandoned due to the bush fire. They lost their last cricket game against Sydney Thunder. It was a close game which they lost in the final over by just three runs. Rashid Khan nearly pulled off a miraculous escape through his innings of 40 off just 18 balls with 4 fours and 3 sixes.  

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

Expert Prediction: SS vs AS

The ninth season of Big Bash League is underway. Two fine sides, Sydney Sixers and Adelaide Strikers, are going to clash with each other in the next cricket game this season. Both sides are well on their way towards the playoff spot with four and three wins respectively of six and five cricket games.  

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, Strikers have been the winner on three occasions while Sixers have won the last two cricket matches.  

Our prediction is of a win for Adelaide Strikers. They are a more attacking team with more options with the ball while Sixers have been more reliant on individuals. 

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.
