This is the second match of the Tuesday Doubleheader; it is the match between 2nd (Sixers) and the 6th (Strikers) team in the points table. The Strikers begin an important week on the road with a huge clash with the Sydney Sixers at the SCG on 29th Jan.
Last time when these two team clashes, Sixers proved too strong for the Strikers. The defending champions are struggling at the moment as they have lost 5 matches in a row. They quickly need to change things in order to qualify for the semis. Their star player Rashid Khan hasn’t been able to deliver like the way he does so a lot will be expected from him along with Colin Ingram and Alex Carey. The bowling will be boosted as Peter Siddle is back in the squad so hoping a good performance from them.
Sixers also need to win this match as they have only 3 matches left, so with every team competing for the same spot, they need to fire their all cylinders. Captain Moises Henriques needs to lead from the front with the bat along with experienced Daniel Hughes. But they will be high in confidence as they have defeated the strongest team on this BBL season.
Player to watch out for:
Sydney Sixers: Josh Philippe, James Vince, Tom Curran
Adeliade Strikers: Alex Carey, Colin Ingram, Rashid Khan
Head to Head:
Adelaide Strikers: 5 win
Sydney Sixers: 4 win
Sydney Sixers: Moises Henriques (c), Steve OKeefe, James Vince, Sean Abbott, Daniel Hughes, Jordan Silk, Tom Curran, Ben Dwarshuis, Lloyd Pope, Josh Philippe (wk), Ben Manenti
Adelaide Strikers: Ben Laughlin, Colin Ingram (c), Michael Neser, Jonathan Wells, Alex Carey (wk), Matthew Short, Billy Stanlake, Jake Lehmann, Rashid Khan, Peter Siddle Jake Weatherald
Adelaide Strikers are likely to win this match as they have a habit of bouncing back from tough situation.
