Fantasy Cricket: Scorchers v Sixers BBL Preview


In the 30th match of the BBL 2020-21, Perth Scorchers will face Sydney Sixers at the Perth Stadium on Wednesday. The Sixers are currently at the top of the points table with 21 points as they got 5 wins from 7 matches.

On the other hand, the Scorchers are at the 7th spot with 9 points acquired from just 2 wins in their 6 wins. However, both the teams are coming off big wins and will be confident.

Perth Scorchers Preview

After three losses and one no-result in the first four matches, the Scorchers have now started to show some form with two back-to-back wins against Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades. In both their wins, their top-order provided them a good start, and players like Josh Inglish and Jason Roy would be good picks for the fantasy.

They also had a great bowling performance in the last match as they bowled out the Renegades for just 89 runs with all their six bowlers taking at least one wicket. Jhye Richardson looks to be in good form so as Fawad Ahmed and Aaron Hardie. Both of them picked up two wickets in the last match.

Sydney Sixers Preview

The Sixers have taken an early lead in the table and currently two points above their Sydney rival, the Thunders. However, they would like to continue their good show and ensure a spot in the top four. Josh Philippe is in great form for the Sixers and delivered another man-of-the-match performance in the last match. Players like James Vince, Jordan Silk, and captain Daniel Hughes are in pretty good nick.

Ben Dwarshuis is leading their bowling and already has 11 wickets in this year’s competition. The inclusion of English international Jack Ball has strengthened them further who will get support from Steve O’Keefe and Benjamin Manenti. 

Fantasy Players to Watch

Josh Philippe has already scored 261 runs and currently in the second position in the run-getters chart. He shows consistency and is a key member of the Sixers.
