The Big Bash League (BBL) 2018/19 season is moving to a crucial stage and it will be the Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Sixers battling out at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday. Both sides have six points each, but the Strikers have played a game lesser than their opponents. A win will give breathing space in the tight top-half, making this an exciting encounter.

Adelaide Strikers Preview

The Strikers had a great start to their title defence, with the top-three responding well with scores. Alex Carey (161 runs), Jake Weatherald (153 runs) and Colin Ingram (105 runs) have been amongst runs for Adelaide.

Peter Siddle joins the squad from national duty and should slot straight into the playing XI. Rashid Khan (eight wickets) has been delivering consistently this season which should give him a place in your fantasy XI.

Adelaide Strikers Predicted XI: 1 Alex Carey (WK) 2 Jake Weatherald 3 Colin Ingram 4 Matt Short 5 Jake Lehmann 6 Jon Wells 7 Michael Neser 8 Rashid Khan 9 Peter Siddle 10 Billy Stanlake 11 Cameron Valente

Sydney Sixers Preview

The Sixers have three wins and losses each, with just a few players impressing in patches. Daniel Hughes (164 runs, SR 130.15) has been their leading light with the bat, while Tom Curran (10 wickets, 111 runs) has been repaying fantasy XIs.

Bowling wise, it is Steve O’Keefe (11 wickets) has surprised with his consistency. Having him in your fantasy side will be a big bonus for your points. The experienced Sean Abbott has been impressing at both ends of the innings. One name you may want to avoid for the moment is Joe Deny – just 61 runs at a SR of 83.56.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Rashid Khan needs no introduction to the fantasy sides. He has been consistently among the wickets, while proving difficult to get away. The Afghan spinner is a definite starter as well, making him a must for your XI.

Tom Curran has been consistent with both runs and wickets. He bowls a lot in the powerplay and the death overs. That increases his chances of taking wickets and earning you points!

Jake Weatherald has come into form in the last match with a sublime match-winning fifty. With Carey set to go for Australian duty soon, he will be eyeing another knock to improve his consistency. All the more reason to have him in your fantasy side.
