Perth Scorchers v Sydney Sixers BBL13 preview

Heading rapidly towards the BBL finals, we head to Optus Stadium for a massive clash between the Perth Scorchers and the Sydney Sixers. With the sides separated by just one point on the table, this match has major implications for the final.

Second in the standings, it has been another great season for the Perth Scorchers. Facing the first-placed Brisbane Heat in their last match, the Scorchers put in an excellent all-round effort as they got home by 35 runs. The most successful side in Big Bash history, the Scorchers have always made the most of their home advantage, which is why a win here is so important for their title hopes. Unfortunately, the Scorchers have lost English opener Zak Crawley due to Test selection, but they have signed former Melbourne Renegade Marcus Harris as a replacement.

The Sydney Sixers have also been very impressive so far this tournament, losing just two games as they consistently defend low scores. In their last match against the Sydney Thunder, the Sixers were able to comfortably defend their first innings total of 151 to take home a 19-run victory. With concerns around the batting line-up, the Sixers are also losing Steve Smith after his one-match cameo, with Daniel Hughes likely to return to the side.

Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Sixers betting predictions

A clash between the two heavyweights of the BBL, the rivalry has become very one-sided recently, as the Scorchers have won six of the past seven matches between the sides. After knocking off the previously undefeated Heat in their last match, the Scorchers will be full of confidence and looking forward to making the most of their home conditions. With the batting struggles of the Sixers coming up against the dangerous Scorchers bowling attack, it is hard to look past the Perth side here at -153.85 at Neds.

Sat third in the competition for runs and batting at number three, Scorchers all-rounder Aaron Hardie is someone who the Sixers will be wary of. After missing out in his last two knocks, Hardie is primed to bounce back, as his big-hitting game favours the fast conditions in the West. With so much on the line for the Scorchers here, back Hardie to return to his destructive best as he scores 30+ runs at +110 with top cricket bookmakers.

Leading the Sixers for wickets in BBL 13, fast bowler Ben Dwarshius will be looking forward to playing on the best pace pitch in the country. The crafty left-armer sits fourth all-time in Big Bash wickets and regularly takes the toughest overs of the match, bowling during the powerplays and at the death. We like him to continue his good tournament here, as he leads the Sixers with the most wickets at +300 with the leading betting sites.
