Sydney Sixers vs Perth Scorchers – Big Bash League match prediction
Playing at home, Sydney Sixers will be hoping for a miraculous win as they’ve struggled badly against their upcoming opponents. Previously, they faced Sydney Thunder and put up quite a show. Bowling first, the Sixers put up a commendable bowling display. Sean Abbott picked up 3/9 while Ben Dwarshuis contributed with 2/28 as the Thunder were restricted to 133/8. In reply, Skipper Moises Henriques & batter Jordan Silk made it look too easy of a run chase. The skipper scored a magnificent 38-ball 53* while the latter scored a 42-ball 59* to get the chase done and dusted in just 16.2 overs. Eventually, the Sixers won by 7 wickets.
Meanwhile, the defending champions had a dominant win over the Sydney Thunder in their previous fixture. Andrew Tye’s 3/27 and contributions from others helped bundle out the Thunder for a mere 111. It was a poor show with the bat and the bowling didn’t seem to help the cause. Stephen Eskinazi came out all guns blazing to score a 26-ball 40 before departing. It was Cameron Bancroft who finished the job with his unbeaten 40-ball 55 that earn the Scorchers a nine-wicket win.
These were some remarkable performances, however, this upcoming encounter has interesting insights. The Sixers had recently lost the Final to the Perth Scorchers in January 2022 and their head-to-head stats speak volumes. Overall, the Scorchers have won 16 matches while the Sixers have managed just 9 wins. In their past five matches, the defending champions have won every game. This is something the sixers would like to change. However, in today’s big bash match prediction, we predict Perth Scorchers to win.
