Sydney Sixers vs Perth Scorchers Predictions

The Perth Scorchers are in a purple patch with five wins in their last five matches. They are good value to win with Jason Roy continuing his good form at the top of the innings.

  • Sydney Sixers’ Josh Philippe has scored 40+ runs in 4 of his last 6 matches.
  • Perth Scorchers’ Jason Roy scored 74 runs in his last match.
  • Perth Scorchers have won their last 5 BBL matches.

Head to Head

The Perth Scorchers hold a 3-2 lead over the Sydney Sixers in their last five matches. When they met earlier this season, the Scorchers convincingly won by 86 runs.

Sydney Sixers Form

The Sydney Sixers have won seven of their 10 matches thus far and sit top of the table, six points clear of second place.

The Sixers won their last match against the Sydney Thunder in Canberra. Bowling first, the Sixers restricted the Thunder to 166 off their 20 overs. Steve O’Keefe was the pick of the bowlers, taking 3-15 in four overs.

Unfortunately for the Thunder the rain arrived and by the time the teams returned to the field, the Sixers needed 129 in 14 overs.

Josh Philippe batted magnificently, scoring 64 off 36 balls to lead the Sixers to a five wicket win. It was yet another convincing display by the defending champions and will now face the in-form Perth Scorchers.

Justin Avendano got an opportunity to open the batting in the last match and should hold onto that spot. He showed enough promise in the 17 runs he scored given the circumstances.

Perth Scorchers Form

The Perth Scorchers have done magnificent work to turn their season around. After losing their first three completed matches, they have now won five in a row and find themselves in third place on the BBL table.

In their last match against the Hobart Hurricanes, the Scorchers bowled first. The Hurricanes could only score 139 runs in Perth as Jhye Richardson took 1-23 in four overs.

The response from the Perth Scorchers was emphatic as they cruised home to win by nine wickets with almost four overs to spare. Jason Roy scored 74 and opening partner, Liam Livingstone added 54 runs.
