Perth Scorchers well-placed to win summit clash against Sydney Sixers - get BBL 2021-22 predictions
Sydney Sixers (SIX) will lock horns with Perth Scorchers (SCO) in match 42 of the Big Bash League 2021-22 season at the International Sports Stadium in Coffs Harbour on Sunday, January 9. The match will start at 1:45 PM IST.
SIX vs SCO Dream11 prediction
Perth Scorchers have been absolutely brilliant in BBL 2021-22, establishing a six-point lead over current title holders Sydney Sixers at the top of the points table.
The Scorchers have won eight of their 10 games so far but are coming off a six-wicket loss to Sydney Thunder. The Ashton Turner-led side will start as favourites in the SIX vs SCO fixture given the form they are in and having beaten the Sixers earlier in match 38.
Sydney Sixers themselves have been impressive in the competition, winning six of their nine completed matches thus far. The defending champions, who have won nine of their 20 matches against SCO, saw their recent four-game unbeaten streak in BBL 2021-22 halted by the Scorchers in the reverse meeting and will aim to avoid another defeat come Sunday.
SIX vs SCO Dream11 team tips for Big Bash League 2021-22
Top tip: Best batter
Colin Munro is favoured as the top batter for fantasy cricket players in this game, on the back of amassing 353 runs at an average of 50.42. The New Zealand star has accrued a whopping 553 fantasy points so far and seems poised for a big knock against Sydney Sixers.
Top tip: Best bowler
It certainly will be a smart move to draft seasoned Australian pacer Andrew Tye into your fantasy team as he’s the top-rated bowler for the SIX vs SCO fixture. The 35-year-old is currently the leading wicket-taker in BBL 2021-22 with 18 scalps. He’s likely to spell trouble for the likes of Sixers captain Moises Henriques and the dangerous Josh Philippe.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Among all-rounders, Sean Abbott is well-placed to appease fantasy cricket players. The Australian all-rounder - with 536 fantasy points to his name - has excelled more often with the ball (13 wickets) but will be eager to contribute with the bat lower down the order.
Josh Philippe qualifies as a smart wicket-keeping pick for this contest. The Australian wicket-keeper has more dismissals (11) than his opposite number Cameron Bancroft (5). Philippe has also hit 295 runs and is likely to continue his good form with the bat.
SIX vs SCO probable playing XI
SIX playing XI (probable): Josh Philippe (wicket-keeper), James Vince, Moises Henriques (captain), Daniel Hughes, Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Hayden Kerr, Shadab Khan, Steve O'Keefe
SCO playing XI (probable): Kurtis Patterson, Cameron Bancroft (wicket-keeper), Colin Munro, Laurie Evans, Ashton Turner (captain), Aaron Hardie, Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, Peter Hatzoglou, Tymal Mills, Lance Morris
