Sydney Sixers vs Adelaide Strikers Predictions

Two strong bowling teams clash but the Sydney Sixers have in-form batsmen with proven quality. The tip for the match is for the Sixers to win and Josh Philippe to get among the runs.

  • Sydney Sixers’ Josh Philippe scored 95 runs in his last match.
  • Sydney Sixers have won their last 4 matches against the Adelaide Strikers.
  • Sydney Sixers are the defending Big Bash champions.
  • Adelaide Strikers’ Jake Weatherald scored 68 runs in his last match.
  • Adelaide Strikers’ Alex Carey scored 55 runs in his last match.

Head to Head

The Sydney Sixers have won four of their last five matches against the Adelaide Strikers. The Strikers last victory over the Sixers came in 2017.

Their last encounter ended with a two wicket win for the Sixers in January 2020.

Sydney Sixers Form

The Sydney Sixers came into BBL10 as the defending champions and the quality of their squad suggests they will be right up there again this season. The title defence didn’t start well as the Sixers went down by 16 runs to the Hobart Hurricanes in Hobart.

The Sixers did however bounce back in their second match to thrash a hapless Melbourne Renegades by 145 runs. Josh Philippe revived his form from last season as he smashed 95 off 57 balls while Jordan Silk added 45 runs down the order.

The total of 205 runs was always going to be a daunting task for the Renegades but no one foresaw what followed. Ben Dwarshuis took 4-13 in 2.4 overs to rip through the Renegades batting lineup while Steve O’Keefe took 3-16 in three overs.

The Melbourne Renegades were all out for a paltry 60 as the Sixers once again proved what a superb bowling side they are.

Sydney Sixers Injuries & Team News

The Sydney Sixers are unlikely to fiddle with their winning combination too much. Their bowlers and batsmen fired in the last match.

The Sixers captain Moises Henriques is still with the Australian national team so will not be available for selection. West Indian captain Jason Holder should be available after arriving in Australia earlier this week.

Adelaide Strikers Form

The Big Bash is very compressed this season which has created a strange scenario where the Adelaide Strikers have played two games, won one and lost one. But both matches have been against the Hobart Hurricanes.

The Strikers lost the first match against the Hurricanes by 11 runs. In the second match the Hurricanes again batted first and scored 147 runs. Peter Siddle was the pick of the Strikers bowlers taking 5-16 in 3.3 overs.

Jake Weatherald top scored in the chase with 68 runs and Alex Carey played well for his 55. That was enough to steer the Adelaide Strikers to a five wicket win with 1.2 overs to spare.

Adelaide Strikers Injuries & Team News

The Adelaide Strikers will be slightly concerned with their batting department. They have not convinced at all and are heavily reliant on Alex Carey and Jake Weatherald. Matt Renshaw, Phil Salt and Jonathan Wells will need to start showing their form of last season.

On the bowling front the Strikers are well stocked, especially with veteran fast bowler Peter Siddle spearheading the attack. Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan is also one of the best T20 bowlers in the world who could cause the Sixers some problems.
