Pitch Report

The surface at the venue provides equal opportunity for both the batters and bowlers. It is a fresh pitch that has not seen much action in recent times, so the ball might zip around a bit initially. However, the team winning the toss would be inclined to bat first at the venue in hopes of putting pressure on the opposition.

Predicted Playing XIs for SIX vs STR

Sydney Sixers (SIX):

Josh Philippe (wk), Steven Smith, Kurtis Patterson, Moises Henriques (c), Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, Hayden Kerr, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Nathan Lyon, Steve O'Keefe

Adelaide Strikers (STR):

Matthew Short, Travis Head (c), Chris Lynn, Alex Carey (wk), Adam Hose, Colin de Grandhomme, Benjamin Manenti, Cameron Boyce, Wes Agar, Harry Conway, Peter Siddle

Probable Best Performers from STA vs STR

Probable best batter: Matthew Short

Strikers' Matthew Short is having a sensational BBL season as he overtook his compatriot and team-mate, Chris Lynn, to become the leading run-scorer of the tournament. He has amassed 418 runs, two more than any other batters this season, in just 11 outings. His side will be hoping for another prolific performance for the trailblazing batter in the upcoming fixture.

Probable best bowler: Sean Abbot

Australian pacer Sean Abbot is hot on the heels of this year's leading wicket-taker, AJ Tye, who has 20 wickets to his name, one more than Abbot. The 30-year-old is in red-hot form and is coming into the fixture on the back of three consecutive three-wicket hauls, including a match-defining 3/18 against Perth Scorchers in the last game.
