Preview:

Sydney Sixers look to arrest a slump in form as they host Adelaide Strikers in Match 51 of WBBL 2019. In the absence of Ellyse Perry, Sydney Sixers haven’t looked as dominant with three losses on the trot. They couldn’t have asked for a tougher opponent than Adelaide Strikers, who have lost only three games so far in the tournament.

Riding on Sophie Devine’s all-round exploits, the Strikers are already assured of a top-four finish. In spite of their qualification, they will look to sustain their momentum heading into the knockouts. With only a handful of games left in the tournament, Sixers will be desperate for a win in Sydney.

Weather Condition/Report:

Rain is expected, in patches, during the game with cloudy conditions on the forecast. A cloud cover and humidity of 95% and 76% is expected at the start of the game, according to AccuWeather while the temperature will range from 23 to 26 degrees Celsius during the course of the game.


Pitch Condition/Report:

A decent batting track is on offer with 130 being a competitive target. The new ball bowlers will get some help early on with the spinners also getting some turn as well. Teams will look to chase here upon winning the toss.
