Sydney Sixers vs Adelaide Strikers Dream11 Prediction
The much-awaited fixture between the high-flying Sydney Sixers and the disappointing Adelaide Strikers will determine whether Sydney continue their stellar form at the start of this season with 3 wins out of 4 or whether the Adelaide Strikers rise from the ashes to pull off an unexpected win against the table-toppers. The Sydney Sixers will host the Adelaide Strikers at the Sydney cricket ground on a warm Tuesday afternoon after a scarily close encounter against the Melbourne Stars which saw the Sixers win the match with just two balls to spare. Adelaide Strikers, however, will be approaching this mammoth task after a heavy defeat against the Perth Scorchers. This will be a do-or-die encounter for both teams as one will look to retain its position at the top of the table while the other will try to avoid consecutive losses this early in the season.

Sydney Sixers have enjoyed a dominant spell over Adelaide and with the upcoming fixture taking place at their home ground, Adelaide may well find it very difficult to overcome the barrier that is the match against Sydney Sixers.
- Josh Philippe (Wicket Keeper)
Josh Philippe has been in stellar form this season behind the wickets for the Sydney Sixers but it’s with the bat where he has shown his incredible capabilities amassing a whopping 259 runs in just 4 matches and sits comfortably at the top as the top run-scorer of the big bash league.
2. Moises Henriques (All-Rounder)
Moises Henriques joins Josh Philippe as the second-highest run-getter this season in the BBL with an impressive 204 runs. He will look to add to his tally on the 21st when he faces the strikers and finally picks up that long-sought-after wicket this season.
3. Tom Curran (Bowler)
The English bowler has been ever-present in the bowling lineup for the Sydney Sixers collecting 5 wickets in 4 matches. He has been in top form since the IPL and the T20 world cup helping England qualify for the knockouts of the tournament. He will look to replicate his recent form once against the Strikers.
- Rashid Khan (Bowler)
Rashid Khan has been a glimmer of hope for the strikers picking up 3 wickets in 3 matches for Adelaide. He will attempt to make it 4 or more in his next match.
2. Matt Short (All-Rounder)
Matt Short has been incredible for the Strikers this season scoring a cool 124 runs in 3 matches. He has been in top form this season in a poor Adelaide Strikers side and will look to make the difference in a match that is tipped in the favor of the Sydney Sixers.
