Sydney Sixers vs Adelaide Strikers will play in the Challenger game of the Big Bash League 2021-22 at Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney. We will cover SIX vs STR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
Sydney Sixers finished at the 2nd position on the Big Bash League points table but lost the Qualifier and will face Adelaide Strikers in the Challenger.
Josh Philippe performed well at the beginning of the season but looked out of form recently, and Avendano was out for a duck in the last match. Skipper Henriques batted plodding, and other players like Jordan Silk, Nicholas Bertus, Daniel Christian, and Sean Abbott got out for a single-digit score. Ben Dwarshuis batted brilliantly, scoring 66 runs from 29 balls but couldn’t win the match.
Only a couple of bowlers bowled well in the last match. Hayden Kerr picked up two wickets, and Steve Okeefe got one wicket. The remaining bowlers conceded runs and went wicketless.
Sydney Sixers need to regroup as this is their last chance to qualify for the Final.
Adelaide Strikers have won six consecutive matches and have qualified to the Challenger this season.
Alex Carey and Matthew Short are in good form and consistently provide a good start. At No.3, Ian Cockbain batted brilliantly and scored a fifty. Wells, Renshaw, and Kelly played cameos and helped the team reach a good total in the last game.
The bowlers have been a significant strength and bowled well in a challenging situation in the last game. This season, Skipper Peter Siddle is in tremendous form, and Harry Conway has picked up wickets consistently. Matthew Short and Henry Thornton picked up one wicket each.
Strikers are in great form and would like to continue the momentum and qualify for the Finals.
