Sydney Sixers vs. Perth Scorchers | Match Prediction, Betting Tip & Odds
A place in the Big Bash League Final is on the line when the Sydney Sixers take on the Perth Scorchers. Sydney are the reigning champions, however with the two teams having finished in the top two positions in the table, a hugely entertaining match is predicted at the Manuka Oval in Canberra. There is little separating the duo in terms of the betting odds from online bookmakers. As such, our betting tip will give punters a helping hand when backing their favourite. Let’s start by taking a look at the situation before the opening ball is bowled.
Initial Situation for the Game Sydney Sixers vs. Perth Scorchers
Having beaten the Melbourne Stars at the MCG earlier in the week, the Sydney Sixers will host the Perth Scorchers, with the winner progressing to the season decider. The Sixers only finished above the Scorchers on the ladder thanks to results on the last day of the round robin, with both teams having some world class talent to call upon. Let’s take a closer look at just how both teams reached this stage of the BBL|10.
Sydney Sixers Form
The Sydney Sixers won the Big Bash League last year and they have lived up to their billing as the reigning champions this time around too. A win over the Melbourne Stars meant that they finished top of the ladder, with the likes of James Vince, Moises Henriques and Jordan Silk being among their standout performers of late. However, before their victory over the Stars, Sydney did suffer back to back defeats at the hands of the Sydney Thunder and Hobart Hurricanes, showing that they are not unbeatable.
Perth Scorchers Form
The Scorchers missed out on finishing top of the ladder following their defeat against the Brisbane Heat. However, the loss was just their second in 10 matches. Mitch Marsh top scored with 54 from just 26 balls during the Scorchers defeat at the hands of Brisbane, with Perth ultimately falling just six runs short. However, prior to this loss, Perth had won three straight matches, including an 11 run success over the Melbourne Stars.
Latest Team News
The two teams last met on January 16, when the Sixers ran out winners by 7 wickets. The Scorchers managed 163 from their 20 overs, a target Sydney reached with 7 balls remaining of their innings. 23-year-old Josh Philippe was named player of the match that day, following his 84 from just 52 balls.
England will be hoping for a much better showing than their last trip to India in 2016/17. India won the five-match Test series 4-0, having also won both the T20 and One Day Series’ on the same tour. England have been known to struggle in the conditions in India, however their tour of Sri Lanka at the start of 2020 should stand them in good stead. England did win a Test series in India back in 2012/13, with little separating the two teams when it comes to their head-to-head record over the years.
