Sydney Sixers out to consolidate top spot
Sydney Sixers may have had a small hiccup to start their title defense but they have been dominant for most of the other games. They started with a 16-run loss against Hobart Hurricanes but ever since that loss, they have won four games in a row. They have looked like one of the best teams in this tournament. Every time they have been put under pressure, they have found ways to punch back up and win the game. Thus, they will be favourites to win this game and have the odds of 1.55.
Meanwhile, Brisbane Heat haven’t had the best of times this season. They were thrashed in their opening game against Melbourne Stars but since then, they have played some good cricket. However, they just haven’t been able to get over the line. They couldn’t defend 178 and have had a one-run loss and loss by two runs in their last three games. Their only win came against Hobart Hurricanes who they beat convincingly. Heat have the odds of 2.20 to win this fixture.
Overall record favours the Sixers
Sydney Sixers have an overwhelming head to head record against the Brisbane Heat. They have won 10 out of the 12 games that they have played against Brisbane Heat. It was only in the 2019-20 season and the 2015-16 season that Brisbane Heat managed to beat Sydney Sixers in the history of the BBL.
RECOMMENDED BET: The defending champions Sydney Sixers are looking strong once again and have odds of 1.55 to beat the Brisbane Heat
This is the first time that these two sides will be squaring off this season and Brisbane Heat will be desperately hoping for a turnaround, in both contexts, this season’s form and their record against Sydney Sixers.
Keep an eye on…
Josh Philippe: The young wicket-keeper batsman has looked in good touch once again this season. He has amassed 172 runs and has a strike-rate of 142.14. However, Philippe is getting good starts but there has been only one occasions where he has gone past the 50-run mark. Thus, he will be the one to watch out for.
TIP: Josh Philippe is batting well and is getting decent scores consistently. He has odds of 8.00 to be the best batsman for the Sydney Sixers.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman: After a sedate start, the Afghanistan mystery spinner wreaked havoc in the last game. He became just the second bowler and first spinner to pick up a five-wicket haul this season. Mujeeb took 5/15 against Hobart Hurricanes and almost bowled his side to a win.
