Adeliade Strikers and the Sydney Sixers are both in the top-4 of the BBL standings right now but things are getting tight and we are likely to have plenty of changes before the group stages wind down.
Both the teams playing this match have lost their previous one and are at risk of falling down the standings if they lose this one. This is going to be the second match that the two play this season against each other with the previous one being won by the Sydney Sixers.
Adelaide Strikers vs Sydney Sixers BBL 2020-21 is going to be played at the Carrara Oval, Queensland on the 3rd of January 2021.
The Adelaide Strikers suffered a batting collapse as they have done previously this season and struggled to get to a par total. It was only the brilliance of Alex Carey who scored 82 that helped them get to 146. Only two other players reached double figures in the entire team and that is where the weakness of this team is.
Batsmen like Phil Salt, Jake Weatherald, and Matt Renshaw have been far too inconsistent for our liking. You never know what you are going to get with the Adelaide Strikers. They may bat like champions one day but on most days the batsmen seem to be struggling.
There are not too many options to change around in the squad either.
The bowling has been a bit up and down as well. Rashid Khan has been fantastic but the pacers have been quite expensive on occasions. Still, this is the stronger suit for the Adelaide Strikers.
They have to hope that they can keep the Sydney Sixers batting in check and then get enough runs to win.
Philip Salt, Matt Renshaw, Alex Carey, JW Wells, Jake Weatherald, Ryan Gibson, Rashid Khan, Daniel Worrall, Danny Briggs, Wes Agar, Peter Siddle.
Two matches in 24 hours are never easy especially when you lose the first one. The Sixers are a pretty similar team to the Adelaide Strikers but with better batting depth. Their batting is also a bit inconsistent and it was their all-rounders that have been bailing it out.
Against the Heat that did not happen and so the Sixers were left trying to defend a relatively poor total.
While the weaknesses in the Sydney Sixers batting order are apparent, there is no questioning that they have more depth than the Adelaide Strikers. Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, Carlos Brathwaite, and hopefully Jason Holder will get a chance to play together in this match once more.
Ben Mannenti, Ben Dwarshius, Carlos Brathwaite, Steve O’Keefe, and Jackson Bird form a decent bowling attack but there are more options than there are match-winners here. The Sydney Sixers have found success going for the all-rounder strategy and we hope that they return to it in the next match.
The loss to Brisbane Heat was only their second loss of the tournament so there is no need to press the panic button just yet.
Josh Philippe, Jack Edwards, James Vince, Daniel Hughes, Jordan Silk, DT Christian, Carlos Brathwaite, Ben Dwarshuis, Benjamin Manenti, Jake Ball, Lloyd Pope.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. Both teams have had success chasing and so that would be their preferred strategy in this match.

The Carrara Oval has been a good ground for some exciting matches so far. The ground is a good one for big-hitting as the boundaries are not too big, however, it always seems like the bowlers have a little something to work with.
Scores of around 165-175 seem to be par at this venue.
No rain has been forecast for match day and so we should not have any interruptions.
We think that the Sydney Sixers are going to strike back hard after losing their previous match. Expect them to go back to their tried and trusted strategy and too not make anymore unnecessary changes to their team.
Both teams appear to have some problems with their batting but the Adelaide Strikers are the weaker side in this contest.
Bet on the Sydney Sixers to win.
