Not long ago, Sydney Sixers were placed at the second spot on the ladder, but a few bad performances have shifted their position to third. They have a difficult assignment up next with not many matches to go in the tournament. They are set to play against Melbourne Renegades, who have been the most dominant team in the tournament, at Sydney Cricket Ground, on 20th January. Melbourne Stars have arguably been the best side in the tournament and beating them is not going to be easy for the Sixers. Considering the competition there is in the middle-part of the points table, the Sixers are expected to come out all guns blazing, and a humdinger of a contest is certainly on the cards.
Not long ago, the Sixers were placed at the second spot, but a loss to Melbourne Stars followed by back to back rain-inflicted encounters has put Sixers in a bit of spot of bother. While they still are favorites to qualify for the playoffs, they need to win at least a couple of more matches to ensure their qualification. As it stands, they have 13 points to their name in 11 matches, and would need at least 16 to feel safe.
Prior to first their clash against Melbourne Stars, Sydney Sixers were flying high. Although not much has changed since then, rain in a couple of matches have made a situation a little bit tricky for them. After sharing points with Hurricanes, Sydney Sixers looked upbeat coming in against Sydney Thunder, but poor batting display disappointed them big time.
After the match was reduced to 16 overs, their batsmen needed to improvise and score quickly, but in quest to do so, they lost their wickets in patches. Eventually they were dismantled completely for a total of just 76. Had it not been for the innings from Justin Avendano, who scored 28, the Sixers would have bundled out for a lot less. Apart from him, only Ben Dwarshius could score in double figures as all other batsmen failed to trouble the scorers much.
While the pitch had plenty of assistance for the bowlers and the overcast conditions helped the bowlers as well, defending such a low total was never going to be easy. The Sixers started off well as they picked up a couple of wickets early in the innings, and even though one could argue that rain played spoil-sport to the Sixers' fortunes, it was never going to be Sixers' game, anyway.

Their only loss in the tournament came against Adelaide Strikers, the loss which was quite some time ago.

The Sixers seem to be losing steam just as we are beginning to approach the business end of the tournament. As was the case in the previous match, they seem to be a little too over-reliant on their top order and that could come in to bite them against Stars as well. The Stars, on the other hand, did incredibly well to defeat Perth Scorchers, especially after a poor batting performance. Considering how well they have done in the tournament so far, they wouldn't be too worried about their poor show against the Scorchers and will be rearing to go. Also, they comfortably defeated the Sixers when the two teams met last time, and will take the confidence in the upcoming fixture. For all the reasons mentioned above, betting on a Stars win would be the way to go.
