Perth Scorchers vs. Sydney Sixers Match Prediction – Wed, 6th January
Sixers Conquer the Quiver
Top of the table, Sydney Sixers have savoured a fluent campaign so far. With 21 points from 7 games in their kitty, the Sixers have pretty much cruised throughout this edition of Big bash League 2020-21. Daniel Hughes and co. have seldom put a foot mistaken this tournament and have been brutally consistent.
This magenta army enjoys the privilege of abundant all-rounders in the likes of Dan Christian, Carlos Brathwaite, and Jason Holder’s short stint. This advantage provides a deeper batting line up and varied bowling alternatives for the skipper. This depth provided by the all-rounders has made a meaningful difference and will continue to prove vital moving forward.
Last time out, they chased down a comfortable 150 against the Adelaide Strikers well within the full quota of overs. Wicket-keeper batsman Josh Phillipe proved lethal at the start providing a solid foundation, which was then carried by James Vince and Jordan Silk. This 7 wicket win has brought them to winning ways and would have gotten players poised. The team is shooting in all directions, making them the choices to recollect their BBL title this year.
2020 revelation star Josh Philippe is relishing a remarkable season. He has been assisted by inspiring contributions with the bat from Jordan Silk, James Vince, and Captain Daniel Hughes. And even though the Sixers miss out on several vital bowlers, the present lot has done an excellent job so far.
The Sydney Sixers showed cracks in their shield in the loss against the Brisbane Heat, particularly with their bowling unit. Also, with the departure of Holder, they might struggle to find a pacer for their franchise. The big concern will be whether their bowling roster is sturdy enough to outdo an in-form Perth Scorchers batting squad, exclusively away from home.
Possible playing XI: Josh Philippe, Daniel Christian, Lloyd Pope, Jack Edwards, James Vince, Carlos Brathwaite, Ben Dwarshuis, Daniel Hughes, Jordan Silk, Jake Ball, Ben Manenti.
Perth Make a Mark Scorchers:
Devoid of a win at the start of the season, the Scorchers have started to sizzle with two great consecutive victories. The Scorching Perth defeated Adelaide Striker with seven wickets and following this incredible win, and they trashed the Renegades by a mammoth 96 runs.
Aston Turner and co. will be poised and itching to make a mark yet again when out in the field. The skipper has managed to find the right combination set in place. A twitch in the batting line up made a vast difference. We witnessed wicketkeeper-batsman, Josh Inglis has scored 116 runs being unbeaten in two BBL games at an impressive strike rate of 161.11.
Regrettably, Liam Livingstone may not have brought about significant difference, but with Colin Munro and Jason Roy finding a fluent form, their top order batting should be sorted. The middle-order was already strengthened with skipper Ashton Turner pairing with Mitchell Marsh and Aaron Hardie.
This two-match winning streak has put Perth Scorchers back points table. They are mere 4 points away from making it to the playoffs, and with two crucial points on offer, they shall be desperate to put aside all barriers. The team needs to endure the winning trot if they don’t fancy their knockout stage chances.
Possible playing XI: Liam Livingstone, Josh Inglis, Colin Munro, Jason Roy, Ashton Turner, Aaron Hardie, Mitchell Marsh, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Fawad Ahmed.
