Adelaide Strikers take on Sydney Sixers in Match 11 of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at the Bellerive Oval, Hobart. Both teams are coming into this match with impressive victories and will want to keep that momentum going. Overall, it is the Sydney Sixers who have had the edge over Adelaide Strikers in the BBL having won seven out of 12 matches. Even in the last five games, the Sixers have tasted victories on four occasions.

BBL HEAD-TO-HEAD

Last 5 Matches: Strikers – 1 Win | Sixes – 4 Wins

Suggested Teams

While you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your own team from Cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. Based on algorithms we come up with six different teams that could fetch crucial points.

Ground Details & Team Combination

Five matches have already been played at the Bellerive Oval this season. In these five matches, it has become clear that it is the pacers who rule the roost. While the spinners are slightly more economical, it is the pacers who have picked up wickets more regularly, striking every 21.9 runs and 15.8 deliveries apart, compared to the spinners, whose corresponding numbers are 38.3 and 28.5 respectively. 

The average score batting first at this venue this season has been 169. Out of the five matches, three have been won by the team batting first. The team batting second has scored at an average of just 135, which could make a strong case for the captain winning the toss – or in this case bat flip – to bat first.

There could be a few interesting match-ups too.

In his 50th BBL match, Jake Weatherald scored his 10th fifty in the competition without much of a hassle. However, it could be a different proposition when he comes up against one of the most seasoned players in Daniel Christian. The duo have come up against each other on five occasions, with the pacer getting the better of Weatherald on two occasions. The southpaw has managed to score just 37 runs off the 31 deliveries he has faced. 

Joshua Philippe too struck form in the previous game, scoring a majestic 95 against the Renegades and he seems to have also successfully negotiated Rashid Khan quite well in T20s. In their four previous meetings, Rashid has dismissed Philippe just once with the batsman scoring at a strike-rate of 146.2 in the 26 deliveries he has faced. In fact, the last time these two faced off was in the IPL, in which the Afghanistan spinner got the better of the Aussie wicketkeeper-batsman.

Captain selection

Joshua Philippe looked in sublime form against the Renegades in the previous match and will look to continue in the same fashion in this game too. He has three scores in excess of 30 from his last five T20 innings. He has been in excellent form this year as well, having scored 521 runs at a strike-rate of 130.9, which includes five fifties in 18 innings.

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Philippe could score 15-38 runs in this match.

X-Factors

In his two matches so far, Ben Dwarshius has picked up seven wickets and moreover, all of these wickets have come in Hobart. His wickets have come at an average of 7.28, 5.7 deliveries apart, which makes him a lethal weapon in the Sixers’ line-up. His figures of 4 for 13 in the previous match are his best in T20s and the left-arm pacer will look to add to his wickets tally with his accurate lines, lengths and the bounce he generates due to his height, making it awkward for the batsmen to play.

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Dwarshius could pick up 0-1 wickets in this match.

Peter Siddle with his career-best 5 for 16 against the Hobart Hurricanes proved that even at 36, he still has the skill and the aptitude to bowl at his best.  Adelaide will once again look to their experienced campaigner to deliver. He has not done badly in 2020 either, having snapped up 20 wickets from 12 innings at 14.7 with an economy rate of just seven.

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Siddle could pick up 1-2 wickets in this match.

Alex Carey returned to lead Adelaide on the back of an impressive showing for Australia A against the Indians. He made an immediate impact against Hobart, scoring a 40-ball 55 and more importantly, put up 107 for the third wicket to lead his side to a five-wicket victory. That was his first fifty in T20 cricket this year and he will be hopeful that it is the start of a good run.

Our Criclytics player projector predicts Carey could score 10-27 runs in this match.
