Perth Scorchers (SCO) will take on last season's runner-ups Sydney Sixers (SIX) in the sixth match of BBL 2022. Perth Scorchers, the defending champions, start their campaign with a replay of last year's final at the Perth Stadium on Saturday, December 17. Their opponents, Sydney Sixers, come into the contest after taking a hammering from Adelaide Strikes in their campaign opener. 

Scorchers are missing several key players for this year's campaign and will be facing an uphill battle to defend their crown, with the mercurial Aussie all-rounder Mitchell Marsh ruled out of the tournament due to an ankle injury. However, their triumph against all odds last season make the four-time champions indomitable opponents for the Sydney-based franchise.

Match Details 

Venue: Perth Stadium, Perth

Pitch Report for Today Match

The surface at the Perth Stadium is renowned for its pace and bounce for the new ball bowlers. However, the batters will also enjoy their time at the venue which eases out as the match progresses. The team winning the toss is likely to bowl first in order to make full use of the bowling conditions early in the match.

Predicted Playing XIs for SCO vs SIX

Perth Scorchers:

Faf du Plessis, Jos Inglis, Nick Hobson, Cameron Bancroft, Ashton Turner (c), Aaron Hardie, Ashton Agar, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Peter Hatzoglou

Sydney Sixers: 

Josh Philippe (wk), Kurtis Patterson, James Vince, Moises Henriques (c), Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, Hayden Kerr, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Steve OKeefe, Izharulhaq Naveed

Probable Best Performers from SCO vs SIX

Probable best batter: Faf du Plessis

Former South African skipper Faf du Plessis was a late addition to the Perth squad after several injury concerns had them in a pickle before the campaign opener. The Protean will be a key player for the defending champions in the absence of the mercurial Mitchell Marsh

Probable best bowler: Sean Abbott

The Australian pacer was a crucial player for the Sixers last season, with 19 scalps in just 13 outings. He started the ongoing edition with another impressive outing against the Adelaide Strikers by grabbing a three-for in his four-over spell. However, his efforts went in vain as the Sydney Sixers were comprehensively beaten by the Strikers.
