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. It took them eight years to add a second title, and now they will look to go back-to-back and defend their crown in BBL10.

Sydney Sixers odds and betting tips

Having won the title last summer, the Sydney Sixers comes into BBL10 as one of the favourites. Most of Australia’s top cricket bookmakers have them on the second line of BBL outright betting, behind only the highly fancied Melbourne Stars.

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 the young guns look like the way to go this season. Keeper-bat Josh Philippe is the standout after a breakout season in BBL9.

Sixers top bowler betting
The core quartet of Sean Abbott, Jackson Bird, Ben Dwarshuis and Steve O’Keefe will be broken up due to Abbott and Bird’s representative duties. With Tom Curran out of the tournament, it looks like Dwarshuis will lead the Sixers attack for much of the campaign.

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. Nic Maddinson, Moises 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. Sean 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 Mitch Starc is much the same.

Test off-spinner Nathan 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.
