Pitch Report

The surface at the SCG is slightly on the slower side and is known to have something in it for the slow bowlers. Teams have found it difficult to chase and only once in the last four games played at the venue has a side batting second won the match. However, given both Thunder and Sixers have a formidable batting line-up, one can expect them to back their batters and hunt down any total. Thus, the sides might decide to bowl first after winning the toss.

Predicted Playing XIs for SIX vs THU

Sydney Sixers (SIX):

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

Sydney Thunder (THU):

Matthew Gilkes (wk), David Warner, Blake Nikitaras, Oliver Davies, Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Ben Cutting, Nathan McAndrew, Chris Green (c), Usman Qadir, Brendan Doggett

Probable Best Performers for SIX vs THU

Probable Best Batter: Jordan Silk

Jordan Silk has been the consistent performer for Sydney Sixers in the BBL 2022-23. He has featured in 12 games and amassed 304 runs at a strike rate of 129.36. He would look to carry on with the good work and put up a show with the bat.

Probable Best Bowler: Sean Abbott

Sean Abbott has breathed fire in the ongoing season of the Big Bash League. The 30-year-old has bagged 20 wickets in 11 matches at an economy of 8.15, which includes a sensational three-wicket haul against Thunder. When Sixers take on Chris Green & Co. this time around, the onus will again be on Abbott to deliver the goods with the ball.
