Players to watch out for:
Despite not having had his best BBL season, the opening keeper-batter has still contributed two half-centuries and will be full of confidence after the final game.
The left-arm bowling all-rounder has been a valuable member of the bowling attack throughout the tournament, taking at least one wicket in all but two games.
By his own high standards, the all-time BBL top wicket-taker had a slow start to this year’s competition. He comes into this game having taken nine wickets in his last three games.
Possible Playing XI:
Josh Phillipe, Steven Smith, Kurtis Patterson, Jordan Silk, Dan Christian, Hayden Kerr, Sean Abbott, Moises Henriques, Ben Dwarsius, Nathan Lyon, Steve O Keefe
Adelaide Strikers Preview:
Adelaide Strikers were unable to chase down 155 runs in 20 overs. Mathew Short led the attack in the match, scoring 39 runs off 30 balls with three boundaries and a six. Chris Lynn (22 runs), Colin De GrandHomme (21 runs), and Adam Hose (19 runs) cameoed at the other end to keep the scoreboard ticking but were unable to push them over the finish line. Their batters failed to reach the target and were defeated by 17 runs.
In 19.3 overs, their bowlers limited the opposition to 154 runs. Pacers Harry Conway (3/36), Wes Agar (2/27), and Peter Siddle (2/24) combined for 7 wickets in the match. Cameron Boyce contributed two crucial wickets in the middle overs, finishing the match with figures of 2/27.
Wes Agar, Cameron Boyce, Alex Carey, Harry Conway, Colin de Grandhomme, Ryan Gibson, Travis Head, Adam Hose, Henry Hunt, Thomas Kelly, Rashid Khan, Chris Lynn, Harry Nielsen, Matt Short, Jake Weatherald, Henry Thorton, Peter Siddle, Ben Manenti, Jordan Buckingham
Players to watch out for:
With a hundred and two half-centuries, Short has had an outstanding campaign. Even when he does not reach 50, he contributes and has hit 97 runs in his last three innings without reaching a half-century.
The Strikers’ veteran captain has found the going much tougher this season. He did, however, take 2-24 from four overs on Saturday and will be in a good frame of mind for this match.
The 25-year-old pace bowler has taken wickets throughout the BBL 2022-23 season. In the previous match, his speed proved too much for the Brisbane Heat’s number seven and nine, James Bazley and Spencer Johnson.
Possible Playing XI:
Chris Lynn, Adam Hose, Mathew Short, Travis Head, Colin De GrandHomme, Harry Conway, Wes Agar, Peter Siddle, Alex Carey, Ben Manenti, Cameron Boyce
Sydney Sixers vs Adelaide Strikers Top Team Batsmen
Our top three batting picks for the Sydney Sixers are Josh Philippe, Steve Smith, and Kurt Patterson. Philippe and Smith, the opening pair, put on 52 pounds on Sunday and looked in great shape. Patterson is the most aggressive of the three and has the ability to take this game away from the Strikers in a matter of overs.
Batting options for the Adelaide Strikers include Matthew Short, Travis Head, and Alex Carey. Short is a consistent performer who hit three fours and a six in his 30-ball stint against the Brisbane Heat. Head scored one run in his first BBL game of the season on Saturday, but he has been in excellent form for the rest of 2022.

Our picks for Adelaide Strikers with the ball are Wes Agar, Peter Siddle, and Harry Conway. Agar is the favourite and has been effective as a strike bowler throughout BBL12. Conway had 3-36 in the previous game against the Brisbane Heat.
