This is expected to be a cracker of a contest as the two in-form teams go head to head against each other. The Sydney Sixers have a well-balanced bowling attack and are more likely to come out on top.

Tip 1: Sydney Sixers To Win

In the last five head to head matches, the Sydney Sixers have won three matches and the Perth Scorchers have won just two matches. But both the teams are in some excellent form this season of the Big Bash League and have lost just three matches each. The Sixers have won three of their last five matches, while the Scorchers have won all their last five matches.
