Nothing gets the heart pumping quite like a battle between cross-town rivals.

The city of Sydney will be buzzing with excitement when the Sixers and the Thunder face off at the SCG with BBL finals places on the line.

The Sixers (7-5) are third on the table, slightly ahead of the Thunder (5-6), who sit precariously outside the top four in fifth.

For the Sydney Thunder, this is the most significant and vital match of the season, as a loss could spell elimination from the finals.

Earlier in the season the two sides faced off in a close match, where the Thunder won by 21 runs after the Sixers were unable to chase down the hefty 169-run total.

Jos Buttler was awarded Man of the Match on the day after posting 63 runs.

Buttler is now back with his national team, England, playing against the Windies in their test series, meaning another Thunder player will need to step up to the plate if they want to win this derby.

The Sydney Sixers’ Skipper, Moises Henriques, manages to score runs when the Sixers need them the most.

Henriques has applied his craft for years and knows when to go and when to be patient.

In the Sixers last match, it was Moises who piled on 61 runs from just 31 balls — an incredible strike rate to say the least.

If the captain can emulate the same intensity and concentration in this clash, he can easily return nice value for BBL punters here.

In the last match against the Thunder, Henriques only made 15 off 13, an embarrassing tally he will be keen to bounce back from.

Expect a big innings from the Sydney Sixers Captain Moises Henriques.

Sixers vs. Thunder betting predictions

Since the mid-point of the season, the Sixers changed their style of play and have won their last three matches consecutively.

The increased confidence and momentum will be a factor in this match. It will help the openers hold their wicket for a longer period of time, as both failed to make a shot in the Power-play last derby.

Expect medium-fast bowler Ben Dwarshuis to provide four good overs for the Sixers, with the ability to quell runs and get wickets simultaneously, Dwarshuis has become a match winning bowler.
