Both teams have one win and a loss in the two Big Bash League matches
Sydney Sixers, the defending champions, had a less-than-ideal ideal start to their season with a shock loss to the Hurricanes first game. To their credit, they made amends pretty strongly by thumping the Renegades, bowling them out for 60, the second-lowest total in the Big Bash League history and the highest win-margin in the BBL’s history. The Sixers have odds at 1.90 to win this game.
Adelaide Strikers played two matches this season, both against the Hobart Hurricanes, and won the second of them in a convincing manner. The Strikers have a decent squad with the ominous presence of Rashid Khan serving as a big boost. They have better odds of 1.74 to win this clash, but they will have to play out of their skin to defeat the former two-time title winners.

Sixers hold the edge in overall records and recent records
Overall records favour the Sydney Sixers who have won seven and lost five of the clashes between these sides in the Big Bash League’s history. The Sixers and Strikers had a pretty even record in the early years of the Big Bash League, if anything dominated by the Strikers. However, the tides have changed in the last couple of seasons. Since 2018, the Sixers have won all four matches between these sides.
RECOMMENDED BET: The Sixers have odds of 1.90 to beat the Strikers, worse than the opposition, however, they seem better placed to win this fixture.
In the last two seasons, the Sixers have grown into a wonderfully dominating outfit and the results against Strikers show the disparity between the teams.
Keep an eye on…
The Sixers batting: While the Sixers were always a superb bowling outfit, the batting was exemplary in the last game. With Josh Philippe, James Vince, Moises Henriques and Jordan Silk in the same team, the Sixers pack quite a punch in this season with the bat.
Rashid Khan : He may not be a wicket-taker, but the Afghan leg-spinner holds the key to the outcome of this game. The Sixers batters aren’t too familiar with Rashid and if the leggie can hit the right notes, the Sixers could find themselves in trouble.
TIP: Rashid Khan is one of the most consistent players in the league and has odds of 7.00 to win the Player of the Match award.
