Cricket Match Preview:

It will not be a hyperbole to say that two of the most successful and consistent sides of the tournament will be taking on each other in the fourth cricket game of the Big Bash League. Both Sydney Sixers and Perth Scorchers have given some of the most memorable performance in the tournament and same is expected from both of them again. It will not be a surprise if either of these two sides ends up winning the tournament.

It was Perth Scorchers, who were at the receiving end of the loss against Sydney Sixers in the final of the first ever Big Bash League back in 2011-12. But Perth Scorchers came back strongly and beat Sydney Sixers in the final of the fourth and sixth edition of the cricket league. None of the sides in the tournament have won the league as many times as Perth Scorchers, who have so far won the tournament 3 times. In fact, they have reached at least the semifinal of the tournament every single time, which is a remarkable feat.

Sydney Sixers, on the other hand, have reached the semifinals 4 out the 7 editions of the league. They have won the tournament only once and that was the first ever edition of the cricket league. They would be disappointed with their performance in the previous edition when they finished at number 5 position.

In the last 5 cricket games between the two sides, Perth Scorchers have completely dominated the Sixers. They have defeated Sixers in 4 out of the last 5 cricket games, which shows the kind of hold Scorchers have had over the Sixers since the beginning of the tournament.

Cricket Match Information:

The semifinalists of last year, Perth Scorchers, will take on Sydney Sixers in their respective first cricket game of the tournament. Both sides will be looking to do at least one better than their performance in last year’s Big Bash League. While Perth Scorchers will look to continue their dominance over the tournament and reach another final, Sixers will look to reach their fifth semifinal of the tournament.

Sydney Sixers

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Sydney Sixers will be led by Moises Henriques in this edition of the cricket tournament. They were led by Johan Botha last time around. Our prediction is they will go with their strength of two spinners in this cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Sydney Sixers’ playing XI:

  • JL Denly
  • Daniel Hughes
  • Moises Henriques
  • Peter Nevill
  • Josh Philippe
  • Tom Curran
  • Stephen O’Keefe
  • Lloyd Pope
  • Sean Abbott
  • Ben Dwarshuis
  • Jordan Silk

Perth Scorchers

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Perth Scorchers will be led by Mitch Marsh in this tournament. Though his availability is confirmed as Australia have gone without him in the remaining two tests against India, his brother Shaun Marsh will not be available for the initial part of the tournament. Our prediction is they will go with the spin of Usman Qadir in the first cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Perth Scorchers’ playing XI:

  • M Klinger
  • Cameron Bancroft
  • Mitch Marsh
  • AJ Turner
  • HWR Cartwright
  • Ashton Agar
  • David Willey
  • Nathan Coulter-nile
  • JP Behrendorff
  • Andrew Tye
  • JP Inglis

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Cameron Bancroft will be coming back to competitive cricket after being out for nearly 9 months due to the infamous sandpaper incident. Our prediction is he will struggle in the initial part of the tournament.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international T20 cricket game was played here between India and Australia recently. In that game, 168 did not prove to be enough for Australia as India chased down the total with ease. Our prediction is of a score around a similar line in this game of cricket as well. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Perth Scorchers will begin the game of cricket as favourites. Their bowling line up is fearsome and can induce fear in any batting lineup. Our prediction is of Scorchers’ victory in this game of cricket as it will be difficult for Sixers to score as many runs that can help bring their spinners into the game and have a fruitful impact on the result.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

M Klinger (PS) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Nathan Coulter-Nile (PS) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

AJ Turner (PS)
