With Melbourne Stars registering a massive win against Adelaide Strikers, Big Bash League is all set for an exciting finish. Now, there is a four-way deadlock in the middle of the points table and it is quite likely that net run-rate will come into the picture. Away from all the competition are the Sixers, who are flying high at the top of the points table.
Stuck in the mid-table rut, Perth Scorchers are all set to lock horns with Sydney Sixers in the upcoming match, which is to be played on 16th January 2020. The match will be played at Manuka Oval, Canberra. Considering how the two sides have done in their recent respective outings, a cracker of a contest is certainly on the cards.
Sydney Sixers won the title last year and their performance thus far is evidence enough that their win last year wasn't a fluke. They are currently dominating the points table and are six points clear of the second-best team on the ladder. With not many matches to go, their chances to qualify for the next round are almost a hundred percent. However, they can play an important role in determining the fate of the teams that are going to face Sixers in the upcoming matches.
The Sixers are recently coming off a superb win over Sydney Thunder in a rain-impacted encounter. Chasing a revised target, Sydney Sixers looked in complete control as they got off a good start and eventually overhauled the total with eight balls to spare. They experienced a few hiccups in the middle-overs, but the total of 129 never really troubled them. Earlier with the ball, their bowlers did a terrific job to keep Thunder's potent batting lineup to a manageable score. Steven O'Keefe was the wreaker-in-chief as he returned with the impressive figures of 15 for 3 in his four-over spell.
On paper, the Sixers have one of the most complete lineups in the tournament. They have a terrific top-order with the likes of Josh Phillippe, James Vince, and Daniel Hughes. Besides, they have a decent set of all-rounders who can contribute in all departments of the game. With a well-rounded bowling attack that is capable to thrive in all conditions, the Sixers have immaculate balance. Getting past them is going to take a lot of effort for any team let alone the Perth Scorchers.

For the most part of the competition, the Scorchers were languishing near the bottom of the points table, but with fantastic results in their last few matches, they seem to be doing pretty well. Another win here will put them well onto the path to progress and that is what they'll be hoping for going forward in the competition. As it now stands, they are third on the points table with 20 points in nine matches.
One thing that plays to the Scorchers' advantage is that they have a terrific net run-rate of 0.903, which is second-best among all teams in the tournament. Also, they have played one less match than everyone else and that advantage of one game can come in handy going forward.
In the beginning, the Scorchers looked all out of sorts with neither of their batting or their bowling working. However, since the last few matches, their firepower has been quite apparent in all three departments of the game. They recently scored a solid win over Hobart Hurricanes, beating them by nine wickets with a lot of deliveries to spare.
With a terrific batting unit and a lethal bowling attack, the Scorchers always had a strong team on paper. They have started converting that on-paper strength to match-winning performances and their five-match winning streak reflects that. Given the form they've been and the team they've got, even Sydney Sixers are going to find it tough in the upcoming match.

Even though the two teams are not exactly close on the points table, this match can very appropriately be seen as the clash of the titans. Perth Scorchers had displayed a terrific exhibition of cricket in the last few matches and Sydney Sixers are reigning the points table. There is little to choose between the two sides and the team that holds its nerves is likely to come out on top in this important match. We expect the match to go right down to the wire and Perth Scorchers eventually winning it, thanks to the momentum they've gained over the last few matches.
