Sydney Sixers

Sydney Sixers are being led by Moises Henriques in this season. They have got off to a great start in this season by winning the first cricket match against Perth Scorchers by eight wickets but then faced two back-to-back losses as well.

In this season, Sydney Sixers have now played four matches and have managed to win two games of cricket. Sixers had won the title in the very first season of the Big Bash League but have not managed to repeat post that. Even then, they have been very consistent and have managed to reach the playoff on four occasions since then.

Sydney Sixers have managed to get in Steve Smith in the squad. Smith will be available in the later stage of the tournament.

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
  • H Kerr
  • TK Curran
  • SA Abbott
  • BJ Dwarshuis
  • Jackson Bird
  • L Pope

Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder are being led by Callum Ferguson in this season. They have got off to a fantastic start to this season having won two of their first three cricket games. Their last cricket game was abandoned due to the bush fire.

Sydney Thunder have been very good in the tournament so far. They won the first game against Brisbane Heat quite easily after putting on the total of over 170 runs. So far, Usman Khawaja, Callum Ferguson and Alex Hales have led the batting strongly.

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

Here is our prediction of Sydney Thunder’s playing XI:

  • Callum Ferguson
  • Usman Khawaja
  • Alex Hales
  • M Gikes
  • AI Ross
  • CH Morris
  • DR Sams
  • CJ Green
  • AJ Nair
  • CP Tremain
  • JD Cook

Expert Prediction: SS vs ST

The ninth season of Big Bash League is underway. The Sydney Derby is also on the way. It has been closely fought historically as well. In the last five cricket games between the sides, Sydney Thunder have been the winner on three occasions.

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.

Our prediction is of a win for Sydney Sixers. They are coming off a big win over Perth Scorchers in their last game. It was an away cricket game as well hence, their confidence would be sky-high.  


Toss prediction?The team winning the toss will 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.
