The Sixers won’t be too bothered with this hiccup but would’ve aimed to kick off the year on a better note. However, plenty will be riding on batters Hayden Kerr and Kurtis Patterson, who have been playing key roles for the team. The former has amassed 237 runs in 10 games while the latter has 194 runs to his tally in 8 games. Kerr has been handy with the ball as well, picking up 13 scalps. He will be accompanied by the likes of Sean Abbott, who has been a little expensive but has 13 wickets to his name in 9 games. They’re a destructive side and with the likes of James Vince & Jordan Silk, there’s no stopping them.

Regardless of the win, there will be ample of pressure in the Heats’ camp as they are struggling at the bottom of the table. Batters Jimmy Peirson and hard-hitter Colin Munro will need to firepower the Heat to climb up the ladder. In 9 games, the former has 232 runs at a strike rate of 143. On the other hand, the latter has 219 runs in 7 matches. They have plenty of help in the form of Josh Brown and Nathan Mcsweeney who are in sublime form. As for the bowlers, Micheal Neser and Mark Steketee will play a key role. The former has 14 scalps in his 8 matches while Mark has 11 wickets in his 9 games. The Heats look in good knick but the former champions are known to turn the game around.
