Head to Head


Perth Scorchers have won four of their last five matches against the Sydney Sixers. It was however the Sixers who won just under two weeks ago by six runs.

Perth Scorchers Form


Perth Scorchers topped the BBL table this season and are also the defending champions. This is certainly a game many will hope will be the final as well.

The Scorchers won their last match by 10 runs against the Melbourne Renegades. Batting first, Cameron Bancroft smashed his way to 95 off 50 balls to lead the Scorchers to 212 in 20 overs.

The Renegades got within 10 runs of victory which would have cost the Scorchers their spot at the top of the table.

The Scorchers should remain unchanged for this clash.

Sydney Sixers Form


Sydney Sixers finished second on the BBL table. Defeat here will not mean they are out of the tournament but victory will secure a place in the final. 

The Sixers beat the Hobart Hurricanes in their last match by 24 runs. Steven Smith continued his excellent form, scoring 66 runs in a total of 180.

The Hurricanes were then rolled over for 156 runs as Jackson Bird, Sean Abbott and Hayden Kerr took two wickets each.
