The Sixers met the Scorchers at the Sydney Cricket Ground on the 22nd of December 2018. The Sixers defeated the Scorchers by 17 runs in this match. Batting 1st, the Sixers scored 164 for the loss of 4 wickets with Jordan Silk and Daniel Hughes making 67 not out and 62 respectively. Hughes dominated the middle period of the innings while Silk added the finishing touches with a masterful display of delightful strokeplay. Jason Behrendorff captured 2 for 28 off 4 overs for the Scorchers while Jhye Richardson captured 1 for 25 in 4 overs.
The Scorchers chase got off to a disastrous start with Sam Whiteman, Michael Klinger, and David Willey being dismissed with just 9 runs on the board. Captain Ashton Turner and Hilton Cartwright added 99 runs for the 4th wicket in 12 overs to bring the chase back on track only for the innings to be hit by a middle-order collapse. The Scorchers finished on 147 for 8 to thus lose the match by 17 runs. Steven O’Keefe was the pick of the bowlers for the Sixers with 3 for 19 while Sean Abbott captured 3 for 29 in his allotted 4 overs. The Scorchers will be hurting at this loss and also about the results so far in the tournament. Our onlinecricketbetting prediction foresees them going all out to win this return match.
The Perth Scorchers are still at the bottom of the table with 2 wins from 7 matches. They are equal on points with Brisbane Heat but with a NRR of -0.403. They have a lot of catching up to do.
Captain Ashton Turner is turning out to be the best finisher of BBL 2018/19. The right-handed middle-order batsman has scored 240 runs in 7 innings with the top score of 60 not out made against Sydney Thunder. He has been unbeaten on two occasions and has often had to rescue the batting or guide the team to victory amidst middle order collapses. Cameron Bancroft made 59 against the Melbourne Stars and is in the process of finding his feet in the big league again. Hilton Cartwright who made an impressive start to the tournament is seeing his form dip considerably while Michael Klinger and William Bosisto are yet to make any worthwhile contribution with the bat. Turner is sure to need some proper support from the other end if the Scorchers are to be competitive going forward.
The Perth Scorchers will miss the services of Jhye Richarson and Jason Behrendorff who have both been selected to represent Australia in the ODI series against India. Hence, the responsibility of heading the bowling attack will lie with Nathan Coulter-Nile and Andrew Tye. Both bowlers have captured 8 wickets apiece and are in good striking form. David Willey returns to open the bowling with the ‘River’ Coulter-Nile while leg-spinner Usman Qadir joins Ashton Agar to strengthen the spin bowling department. Qadir captured 1 for 25 against the Melbourne Stars and looked good while giving the ball some air, enticing the batsmen to go over the top.
The Sydney Sixers have moved up to 4th position after recording a 6-wicket win over the Adelaide Strikers. The Sixers have not been able to win many matches in a row and hence do not have any momentum as a cohesive unit going into this match.
Joe Denly made 76 not out against the Adelaide Strikers to finally find some good form in the tournament. He kept calm under pressure and ensured that he batted till the end to bring victory to the team. Jordan Silk is still the leading run-scorer in the team with 194 runs in 7 innings. He is the key batsman in Sixers middle and lower order. Daniel Hughes batting at number 4 has made 188 runs with the top score of 62 while captain Moises Henriques has made 150 with the top score of 57. The Sixers will be happy that a few of their batsmen are peaking at the right time. Onlinecricketbetting hopes that they continue this going into the upcoming matches.
The Sixers have 3 bowlers appearing inside the top 10 bowlers of the tournament. Tom Curran and Sean Abbott have led the bowling attack admirably well capturing 11 and 10 wickets respectively. Curran has been crafty with his lines and lengths varying his pace to bamboozle the batsmen. Ben Dwarshuis the left-arm fast medium bowler started the season off well capturing 3 for 26 against the Melbourne Stars. Wickets have eluded him in the last 4 matches but he has managed to keep things quiet from one end. Steve O’Keefe is the leading wicket-taker of BBL 8 having so far captured 13 wickets at an average of 14.46. The left-arm orthodox spinner has three 2 wicket returns to go with his best effort of 3 for 19 against the Scorchers.
What will be the outcome of this match? Who will win? We predict that it will be the Perth Scorchers who emerge as the winners at the end of this match.
