Fantasy Cricket: Sixers v Strikers BBL Preview


Sydney Sixers and Adelaide Strikers will meet in the 11th match of the Big Bash League on Sunday,  December 20 at Bellerive Oval. Both teams are coming from comfortable wins as for both, their batsmen and bowlers are looking in good form. 

Sydney Sixers Preview

Sydney Sixers achieved a record victory in their last match as after scoring 205/4 in their 20 overs they bowled out Melbourne Renegades for just 60. Josh Philippe scored a brilliant 95 at the top and made lots of fantasy players happy. He should be in demand in this match also. Jordan Silk and Daniel Hughes provided the late order push and should be decent fantasy picks.

Their bowling looked one dimensional with a bunch of medium pacers but still Ben Dwarshuis and Gurinder Sandhu looked in good form. Steve O’Keefe picked up three wickets and should be part of many fantasy teams. They also have Jason Holder joining their squad but whether he will play tomorrow, that will be something to see.

Adelaide Strikers Preview

Adelaide Strikers’ win primarily came due to the bowlers but they also had two decent batting performance in the last match. Jake Weatherald and Alex Carey scored half-centuries. The duo along with Phil Salt and Matt Renshaw, batting at the top order, should be good picks for the fantasy teams.

The experienced Peter Siddle picked up five wickets in the last match and got good support from Wes Agar and Daniel Worrall. They are also expected to welcome back Harry Conway and Liam Scott in their squad. Conway is cleared after the concussion threat in the practice match against Indians and expected to strengthen the bowling further.

Fantasy Players to Watch

After a mildly successful IPL, Josh Philippe is now playing more comfortably in the conditions he likes. He should continue his good form and get picked in fantasy teams.

Jake Weatherald is the highest scorer for the Strikers till now and batting with a strike rate of 130.

Peter Siddle has already picked up 6 wickets at an average of 7.5 and an economy rate of 6.00. The experienced Aussie quick is still making his mark and expected to provide a bag of fantasy points.
