The BBL 2021-22 season has reached the halfway point, with teams competing hard for the points on offer in each upcoming match. Sydney Thunder had a swansong season in the first five matches, but their last match against Perth Scorchers sparked a three-game winning streak. In this match, they will try to complete a double over the Perth Scorchers. Except for their last match against the Sydney Thunder, the Perth Scorchers have won all of their matches this season. We anticipate that they will avenge their defeat and take the crucial points on offer in this match.
The game will take place on January 04, 2022 at Carrara Oval in Queensland.

The Sydney Sixers haven’t been at their best this season, but they’ve found ways to win nonetheless. That is something that would frighten its adversaries. The batting form of Philippe and Henriques has compensated for many of the Sydney Sixers’ flaws. For one thing, the rest of the batting order has struggled to get going. James Vince is a distant third, and he, too, has no fifty-plus scores to his name.
In the previous game, the Sixers were saved by Ben Dwarshius and Sean Abbott while chasing only 106 points. It demonstrates that they are not as infallible as betting odds sometimes suggest. Of course, the names are there on paper, but we believe this Sixers squad is beatable.
The bowling attack has performed admirably, led by the ever-dependable Sean Abbott. With 12 wickets to his name, he is the Sydney Sixers’ leading wicket-taker this season. We’re not going to bet against him in this game either. The odds on him being the top bowler for the Sydney Sixers are a little short, but the other options don’t really stand out to us right now.
Sydney Sixers Squad
Josh Philippe (wk), James Vince, Moises Henriques (c), Daniel Hughes, Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, Sean Abbott, Hayden Kerr, Shadab Khan, Ben Dwarshuis, Steve OKeefe, Jackson Bird, Nick Winter, Mickey Edwards, Lloyd Pope
Predicted XI: Josh Philippe (wk), James Vince, Moises Henriques (c), Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, Shadab Khan, Daniel Hughes, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Steve OKeefe, Hayden Kerr
Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Sixers Toss Prediction
For the most part, the pitch performed admirably in the previous game, despite its uneven pace. Both teams will try to get the opposing team to bowl on this track and plan their chase around the target on the line.
Pitch and Weather Conditions
The Carrara Oval pitch has a true bounce, but the pace has been slightly uneven across the lengths. Batters must work hard before facing the bowlers, who will look to use their variations to great effect on this pitch. On this pitch, we anticipate average scores of 150-160 runs.
On the day of the match, Queensland is expected to have sunny and breezy weather with bright sunshine. There will be no weather or rain delays.
Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Sixers Match Prediction
We’re going to put our money on the Sydney Sixers to win. We don’t believe the Sixers are as strong as they were the previous two seasons, but they do have more depth. The Perth Scorchers have also struggled with their batting lineup, and while the lower order has chipped in, the big scores required to beat the better sides have been lacking.
Sydney Sixers is the favourite to beat Perth Scorchers at the odds of 1.67.
- Both teams have struggled with their batting, but the Sydney Sixers have a slight advantage.
- Sydney Sixers is third in the points table with 19 points from 8 games.
- So far this season, the Sydney Sixers are the only team to defeat the Perth Scorchers.
