SYT vs SYS Prediction, 11Wickets Fantasy Cricket Tips: Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – WBBL 2020, Match 48

Sydney Thunder are expected to paint the city in green by beating local rivals Sydney Sixers.

Match Details:

The 48th match of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) 2020 will be played between the Sydney Thunder Women and the Sydney Sixers Women at the Sydney Showground Stadium.

This match is scheduled to start at 07:05 PM Local Time (01:35 PM IST) and it will be streamed live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD.


Given their history, fans expected both Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers to be in the hunt for semi-final places at the very least. The teams haven’t let anyone down and are very much in the fray to advance to the next stage of the competition. Thunder have been the better team from Sydney in this year’s WBBL. With 5 wins from 11 games, they are currently at the points table.

Just one point behind them is Sydney Sixers. However, given their poor Net Run Rate and how closely packed the teams are, they are currently sitting in the 6th position. With a win, they will be able to go ahead of Thunder and place themselves on third.
