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, and will be eager to make an impact in BBL9.

Sydney Sixers odds and betting tips

Despite finishing in the top four last season, the Sixers will start BBL09 well back in the pack. Australia’s top cricket bookmakers have them in the bottom two lines of BBL outright betting, at odds of $8 or more to win the title. Thus, there should be decent value about the pink half of Sydney to make finals.

Sixers top batsman tips
Daniel Hughes is a consistent accumulator who has amassed 200+ runs in each of the past three BBL seasons. Moises Henriques is another solid performer, but look to young guns Jack Edwards and Josh Philippe for the fireworks. Steve Smith will be a handy addition late in the campaign if he makes him available.

Sixers top bowler betting
The core quartet of Sean Abbott, Jackson Bird, Ben Dwarshuis and Steve O’Keefe will be broken up when Abbott heads to India with Australia’s ODI squad in January. Tom Curran is another talented bowler who is unlikely to play the whole season, while Nathan Lyon is a chance to feature once the Tests are done.

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 is a prolific wicket-taker at this level, Johan Botha was 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 his impressive BBL record suggests the national selectors should revisit that matter. The same could be said of Josh Hazlewood.
