Big Bash League

It was no great surprise when Sydney’s glamour team won in the inaugural T20 Big Bash League title in 2011/12. The Sixers have failed to replicate that early success since, however, twice reaching the final and twice coming up short.

Can Greg Shipperd’s men go one better than last season and win it all? This is your one-stop shop for Sydney Sixers odds, fixtures, results, team news and squad lists for the 2017/18 BBL campaign.

2017/18 Sydney Sixers squad

 

Sydney Sixers odds and betting tips

Most online bookmakers have the Sixers pushing for another finals campaign. Some have the men in pink as high as the second line of betting, but CrownBet’s $6.50 outright quote puts them back in the middle of the pack. You can also get $1.70 odds for a top-four finish, and $3.30 on the Sixers to reach the decider.

Top batsman in BBL07

The Sixers lack standout sloggers, which makes it difficult to pick a top runscorer favourite out of the pack. English duo Sam Billings and Jason Roy could be called away for international duty in the back half of the season, while Moises Henriques is half a chance to join the Australia squad for the limited-overs games.

That boils it down to two New South Wales teammates. Daniel Hughes and Nic Maddinson scored four centuries, three half-tons and 777 runs between them in the recent JLT One Day Cup, and both are paying $2.45 at CrownBet to finish as the Sixers’ top bat in BBL07. Hughes impressed with 304 runs in eight digs last season, so that’s where our money is.

Top bowler in BBL07

With everyone fit and available, the Sixers boast the most lethal bowling attack in the Big Bash. But the likes of Mitchell Starc and Nathan Lyon will be otherwise occupied for the majority summer, which means we need to look elsewhere for a top bowler bet.

Sean Abbott led the competition with 20 wickets last season, and we see no reason why the NSW allrounder can’t stand up again. William Hill has him at $13 odds to take the most wickets of any bowler in BBL07, while CrownBet is offering $3.50 for Abbott to top the Sixers’ charts.

All-time Sydney Sixers XI

1. Nic Maddinson
2. Brad Haddin
3. Steve Smith
4. Michael Lumb
5. Moises Henriques
6. Johan Botha
7. Sean Abbott
8. Mitchell Starc
9. Brett Lee
10. Nathan Lyon
11. Josh Hazlewood

The Sixers batting order just about picks itself. Maddinson, Henriques and Michael Lumb have contributed more than 3000 runs between them, Brad Haddin was excellent value at the top of the order during his time in the BBL, and Steve Smith – what more needs to be said?

From six through nine we have four excellent all-round talents. Abbott was the leading wicket-taker last year, Johan Botha remains one of the most consistent performers in the competition, Brett Lee was always a menace with the white ball and Starc is much the same.

Test off-spinner Lyon does not get much recognition for his work in the Twenty20 arena, but 27 Big Bash wickets at an average of 16.11 suggest the national selectors should revisit that matter. The same could be said of Josh Hazlewood, who has taken 21 scalps in only 14 games for the Sixers.
