Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Sixers Predictions


This should be a tight encounter but it is the Sydney Sixers who have shown great consistency this season. The best bet is for the Sixers to win at even money with Josh Philippe backed for runs. 

  • Perth Scorchers’ Josh Inglis has scored 44 and 72 runs in his last 2 matches.
  • Sydney Sixers’ Josh Philippe has scored 40+ runs in his last 3 matches.
  • Sydney Sixers have won 5 of their last 7 matches.
  • Sydney Sixers have won 4 of their last 5 matches against the Perth Scorchers.

Head to Head


The Sydney Sixers have won four of their last five matches against the Perth Scorchers. The Sixers won their last encounter against the Scorchers on Boxing Day in 2019 by 48 runs.

Perth Scorchers Form


The Perth Scorchers are second bottom on the BBL table with only two wins from their opening six matches. 

One of those two victories came in their last outing when they thrashed the Melbourne Renegades by 96 runs in Perth. It was a dominant display by the Scorchers, and they will want to replicate that against the Sixers on Wednesday.

Batting first the Scorchers scored 185 runs. Josh Inglis top scored with 72 runs while Colin Munro eventually came good with 52 runs. The two Englishmen, Jason Roy and Liam Livingstone got the Scorchers off to a solid start, something they have lacked this season.

The Scorchers then dismissed the Renegades for a paltry 89 runs. Fawad Ahmed took 2-5 in his 2.5 overs.

Perth Scorchers Injuries & Team News


After a dominant performance last time out against the Renegades, the Scorchers are unlikely to make any changes. The top four batsmen all scored runs, something they have struggled with since the start of the season.

Sydney Sixers Form


The Sydney Sixers are top of the Big Bash table with five wins from their seven matches. The Sydney-based outfit has been flying this season and will want to keep that momentum.

The Sixers won their last match by seven wickets against the Adelaide Strikers in Carrara. The Strikers scored 150 runs batting first, a score which always looked under par.

Josh Philippe scored 41 and James Vince 45 runs as the Sixers cruised to victory with two overs to spare.

Sydney Sixers Injuries & Team News


Moises Henriques is back with the squad but the Sixers have been performing well thus far, which kept him out for the last match.

If Henriques does come in it will be for either Daniel Christian or Carlos Brathwaite.
