Read our preview as Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Sixers in 30th match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at the Perth Stadium and is set to get underway at 4:15 PM local time.
It was hard to see a side like Perth Scorchers struggled like the way they did in the tournament. But now, with two solid performances, we can hope their graph to go upwards from here.
Jason Roy and Liam Livingstone has got starts but have not converted them into big scores. However, they’re striking the ball beautifully and we feel that a big inning is just around the corner.
It’ll also be a huge relief to see runs from Colin Munro and Josh Inglish, and Mitchell Marsh. All of them are pretty destructive batsmen and if they can play to their potential, Perth Scorchers will be very difficult to contain.
Jhye Richarson has been scintillating with the ball in the last few games while he’s got good support from Andrew Tye, Aaron Hardie, Jason Behrendorff, and Fawad Ahmed.
Sydney Sixers has been on a roll in the BBL 2020-21. After a blip against Brisbane Heat, Sixers returned to winning ways with a 7 wicket win over Adelaide Strikers.
With James Vince, Daniel Hughes, Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, and Carlos Brathwaite, the Sydney Sixers are a formidable batting unit.
Sixers dropped Jason Holder and brought in genuine bowlers to add quality in the bowling department. It’s a move that we think can back fire as it compromises on their batting depth.
Also, the players that have come in have not lived up to the expectations. They could consider bringing Holder back for this match.
Even then, they look a very strong team. They have plenty of quality in their batting, and their bowling looks more suited to the bouncy pitch of Perth. They’re our favourites for this match.

SYS Team News
Sydney Sixers have named an unchanged 18 member squad to take on Perth Scorchers. The squad will be further trimmed to 13 ahead of the bat flip. Among all, Nick Bertus and Tom Rogers are yet to make the debut for SIxers. One of them might get a game against Strikers in BBL 2020-21.
SYS Key Players
- Josh Phillipe – Josh Phillipe has been sensational for the Sixers. He’s the second highest run getter of the tournament with 261 runs in 7 games. Playing on his home ground and he’ll be well aware if the conditions. We expect him to come good in the next match.
- James Vince – James Vince has played some good knocks but has not been very consistent for the Sixers. He looked composed in his knock of 45 against the Strikers and would want to back it up with a big one.
- Daniel Christian – Daniel Christian is the X factor in this Sixers team. With the bat, or the ball, he’s played his role to perfection and we back him to come good against Perth Scorchers as well.

Sydney Sixers have been terrific in the tournament. Apart from two losses against Hobart Hurricanes and Brisbane Heat, they’ve won all their matches in the BBL2020-21
