Cricket Betting

The table-toppers Sydney Sixers take on a rampant and in-form Perth Scorchers in match number 41 of this 10th edition of the Big Bash League (BBL).

Sydney Sixers are currently sitting pretty at the top of the points table. They have lost just three games this season and have won seven. Moreover, out of the 10 games that they have played, the Sixers have won 8 Bash Boost points. The batting has fired while the bowlers have got the job done and it’s been a more collective effort. Another win might well make them the first team to qualify for the knockouts.

Sydney Sixers vs Perth Scorchers, Match 41 Match Predictio

Perth Scorchers have been on a roll in the last few games. They are on a five-match winning streak at the moment and this was after they had four winless games to start this BBL 10 season. In fact, almost all of their wins have been by big margins and they have dominated those games more often than not. The margin of wins for the Perth Scorchers have been by seven wickets, by 96 runs, by 86 runs, by 17 runs and by nine wickets.

What’s more is that the Perth Scorchers have a better head to head record against the Sydney Sixers. The Scorchers have won 11 games while the Sixers have won six. These two teams squared off more than a week back and the Scorchers absolutely thrashed the defending champions.

Team news: Sydney Sixers

Sydney Sixers are unlikely to have any changes to their squad. They have no injury concerns at all and they will be raring to go once again.

Team news: Perth Scorchers

Perth Scorchers skipper Mitchell Marsh suffered from a moderate left side strain in the game against Hobart Hurricanes while bowling. He is likely to miss a few games and will return to the XI when he gets fit only as a batsman. In his absence, Ashton Turner will lead the side.

Predicted XI

Sydney Sixers: Josh Philippe (wk), Justin Avendano, James Vince, Daniel Hughes (c), Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, Carlos Brathwaite, Steve O’Keefe, Jackson Bird, Jake Ball, Lloyd Pope

Perth Scorchers: Jason Roy, Liam Livingstone, Cameron Bancroft, Josh Inglis (wk), Ashton Turner (c), Aaron Hardie, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Fawad Ahmed, Kurtis Patterson

Key players

Daniel Christian: Daniel Christian has been excellent with both bat and ball for the Sydney Sixers in this tournament. He has contributed with 175 runs but he has a stunning strike-rate of 192.30 with the bat. Meanwhile, Christian may be expensive at times with the ball and tends to leak runs but he can chip away with wickets. He has 10 wickets to his name. Moreover, the veteran all-rounder is a very good fielder and contributing in all three departments more often than not.

Jhye Richardson: Jhye Richardson has been absolutely magnificent with the ball in this BBL season. With 18 wickets at an average of 11.36, a strike-rate of 10.5 and an economy of 6.34, he is the joint-highest wicket-taker in this tournament. The 24-year-old Western Australian quick has delivered every time he’s got the ball in hand. In the powerplay, Richardson has picked up six wickets at an economy of 4.41. Hence, he will be the one to watch out for and will continue to be a extremely key bowler for the Perth Scorchers.
