Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions KFC Big Bash League – Perth Scorchers v Sydney Sixers

Liam Livingstone (Perth Scorchers),

The 12th Match of the BBL 09 will be between Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers is going to be played at the Perth Stadium, Perth on the 26th of December.

Perth Scorchers and the Sydney Sixers have played each other already at the start of this BBL and since then, both sides have played three matches each and won one of them each.

Both teams will be looking to improve on their win/lose ratios. Last time out against each other, Sydney Sixers ended up winners.

The Scorchers have put in some great batting performances against the Melbourne Renegades and the Adelaide Strikers with Mitchell Marsh, Liam Livingstone and Josh Inglis all getting good individual scores and the bowling of Jhye Richardson, Chris Jordan and Ashton Agar have all shown promise but the whole squad will need to come to the party, if the Scorchers are going to go the distance, in this BBL.

Whilst the bowling of Sean Abbott and Tom Curran have been good for Sydney Sixers, their batting is fragile - Josh Phillipe has had his moments but James Vince and Moises Henriques are seemingly left to prop up the line-up in the middle order.

Should be a evenly matched encounter, in front of big Boxing Day crowd, at the Perth Stadium, Perth tomorrow.
