SCO vs SIX Dream11 team tips for Big Bash League 2021-22
Top tip: Best batter
Sydney Sixers captain Moises Henriques has been in impressive form in the ongoing edition of Big Bash League. The 34-year-old middle-order batter has amassed 433 runs in 15 matches at a strike rate of 134.05. Henriques has accrued 669 fantasy points and will be a great pick at 9.5 credits.
Top tip: Best bowler
Andrew Tye has been the destroyer-in-chief for Perth Scorchers in BBL 2021-22. The Australia fast bowler has picked 22 wickets in 15 matches at an economy of 8.26. Having already accumulated 755 fantasy points, Tye is a must-have pick for this clash at 9.5 credits.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Among the all-rounders on display, picking in-form Hayden Kerr in your fantasy cricket team is a no-brainer. The 25-year-old has bagged 24 wickets and also scored 150 runs, including a match-winning unbeaten 98 against Adelaide Strikers in the Challenger clash. Kerr has amassed 941 fantasy points this season and will look to add more points to his fantasy tally on Friday.
In the absence of regular Sydney Sixers wicket-keeper Josh Phillipe, Perth Scorchers’ Josh Inglis will be the preferred choice over Jay Lenton of Sixers due to his experience in big matches. Inglis has made 124 runs in seven games this season and is a safe presence behind the stumps.
