Head to Head


The Sydney Sixers have won four of their last five against the Adelaide Strikers. It is, however, the Strikers who won their last match just over a week ago by eight wickets.

Sydney Sixers Form


The Sydney Sixers have been consistent throughout the season winning nine of their 14 matches which helped them finish second on the table. 

Recently the Sixers have been a bit less consistent though. They suffered a defeat in the qualifier to the Perth Scorchers, which resulted in them needing to play this match.

The Scorchers scored 189 runs batting first in Melbourne, a score that was always going to be difficult to chase. The Sixers fell away immediately, finding themselves at 98-9. 

A 28-ball 66 by Ben Dwarshuis took the Sixers to 141 runs before being bowled out. 

Sydney Sixers Team News


The Sixers have remained consistent in selection but the top order will need to score some runs. Last time out only one batsman in the top seven scored more than 10 runs.

Squad: Moises Henriques, Sean Abbott, Jackson Bird, Lawrence Neil-Smith, Daniel Christian, Ben Dwarshuis, Jack Edwards, Mickey Edwards, Daniel Hughes, Hayden Kerr, Nathan Lyon, Nick Winter, Ben Manenti, Stephen O'Keefe, Josh Philippe, Lloyd Pope, Jordan Silk, Shadab Khan

Adelaide Strikers Form


The Adelaide Strikers made a late run to make it to the BBL playoffs, winning their last four round robin matches. While they finished fourth, the Strikers were the side coming into the playoffs with momentum.

That form continued in the eliminator as the Strikers beat the Hobart Hurricanes. Last time out the Adelaide-based outfit struck again, this time beating the Sydney Thunder to make it to the challenger match.

Ian Cockbain hit 65 runs as the Strikers went on to post 184 runs in 20 overs against the Thunder. The chase was on throughout for the Thunder but the Strikers managed to pull through to win by six runs. Harry Conway took 2-33 in his four overs.

Adelaide Strikers Team News


The return of Alex Carey was a big boost for the Strikers last time out. They are unlikely to make any changes to the side for this encounter.

Squad: Fawad Ahmed, Alex Carey, Ian Cockbain, Harry Conway, Ryan Gibson, Travis Head, Spencer Johnson, Harry Nielsen, Liam O’Connor, Matthew Renshaw, Liam Scott, Matt Short, Peter Siddle, Henry Thornton, Jake Weatherald, Jon Wells, Daniel Worrall.
