Online Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions BBL- Sydney Sixers v Adelaide Strikers
Sydney Sixers beat Adelaide Strikers by six wickets in the last encounter between the two teams. However, the Strikers had earlier beaten them three times in a row.
Adelaide Strikers have lost four out of their last five matches and would be under a lot of pressure to turn things around. Sydney Sixers have been doing decently and have won six and lost five out of their 11 matches.
The Sixers will rely on James Vince, who scored an unbeaten 74 in the last match against Hobart Hurricanes, to put some runs on the board. The other leading batsman would be Jose Philip who also made a 49-ball 86 in the same match. Apart from them, opener Daniel Hughes and middle-order batsman Jordan Silk would take the responsibility of the batting lineup.
The bowling of the Sixers has been firing as three of their bowlers feature in the top five bowlers of the tournament. All three of Steve O'Keefe, Sean Abbott and Tom Curran have picked wickets on a regular basis. While Abbott and O'Keefe have 16 wickets each, Curran has 15 scalps.
Adelaide Strikers will welcome back Peter Siddle, who has been released from the Australian Test squad. He would probably make the cut in place of leg-spinner Liam O'Connor. With the bat, skipper Colin Ingram is the leading scorer and recently crossed the 300-run mark. The Strikers will also be counting on Alex Carey, Jake Lehmann and Jake Weatherald in the batting lineup.
With the ball, Rashid Khan would be the leader of the pack. He has picked up 14 wickets from 10 matches while bowling at an unbelievable economy. Although Stanlake has also claimed nine wickets, he has been a touch expensive at times.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.
