Right in the middle of the Australia vs India ODI series, the Big Bash League (BBL) 2018/19 season match #30 will witness an interesting battle. Perth Scorchers will play Sydney Sixers at the Perth Stadium on Sunday. The hosts are stuck at the bottom of the BBL08 points tally, while the visitors are in the top-four.
Perth Scorchers Preview
The Scorchers have just two wins this season in seven matches, but have won their previous match. Captain Ashton Turner (240 runs, SR 126.31) has shown good form in the last three matches. He has been released from the ODI squad to re-join the Scorchers, which is good news for your fantasy team selection.
Cameron Bancroft (104 runs, SR 110.63) has also shown impressive form, warranting a look. With two of their top bowlers missing due to ODI duty, Andrew Tye (eight wickets) picking up four wickets in his last match is great news for the Scorchers.
Perth Scorchers Predicted XI: 1 Cameron Bancroft (WK) 2 Michael Klinger 3 Ashton Turner 4 Ashton Agar 5 Hilton Cartwright 6 William Bosisto 7 Nathan Coulter-Nile 8 David Willey 9 Andrew Tye 10 Usman Qadir 11 Matthew Kelly
Sydney Sixers Preview
The Sixers haven’t been affected by the players going on Australian ODI duty, but Joe Denly misses out due to England selection. However, his replacement James Vince is a great pick and definitely is the one to watch. Jordan Silk and Daniel Hughes have been excellent as well, and definitely should be part of your fantasy XI picks.
Steven O’Keefe (13 wickets, ER 6.71) has been impressive with both his wicket-taking abilities and control, which is good news for fantasy sides. Tom Curran (11 wickets, 111 runs) is one of the best all-rounders of BBL08.
Sydney Sixers Predicted XI: 1 James Vince 2 Justin Avendano 3 Daniel Hughes 4 Moises Henriques 5 Jordan Silk 6 Josh Philippe (WK) 7 Tom Curran 8 Sean Abbott 9 Steven O’Keefe 10 Ben Dwarshuis 11 Benjamin Manenti
Fantasy Players to Watch
Ashton Turner has scores of 60*, 47 & 43* in his last three knocks for the Scorchers. He is someone who can balance control and big shots at any stage of the innings. Time to have him in your fantasy XI.
Tom Curran is the third-best bowler in the wicket-takers tally. He is also in the top-ten economical bowlers, who have bowled at least 20 overs in BBL08. Add the 111 runs he scored at a SR of 144.15, Curran should be an automatic choice for your fantasy side.
Andrew Tye had just four wickets coming into the previous game, but roared into form with 4/18. He has stormed into the top-ten wicket-takers list of BBL08 and won’t be a surprise if he keeps moving up.
