BH vs SYD Match Prediction - Jan 01, 2023

The Sydney Sixers will look to further cement its position in the top 2 on the points table as it faces a deflated Brisbane Heat team on Sunday in the Big Bash League. The Sixers are in terrific form and start this match as the favorites to win, but a bruised Brisbane Heat team will be hungry to register a win and we can surely expect an entertaining contest. 


BH vs SYD Team Previews

Brisbane Heat

So far, it has been a disastrous season for the Brisbane Heat, as they have managed to win just 1 of the 5 matches that they have played. As a result, they find themselves at the bottom of the points table.

Their last match played against Sydney Thunder was an extremely close affair. Chasing a stiff target of 183, Brisbane was kept in the hunt by Colin Munro, who almost got them to their second win of the season. The Brisbane Heat needed 16 runs off the last over, but a controversial ball change 2 deliveries into the 20th over, saw Munro depart to a brilliant catch by Daniel Sams and denied the home team a win.

Earlier, James Bazley bowled a superb spell of 4 for 22 and has now taken 7 wickets this season, along with Michael Neser and Mark Steketee. With some of its most important picks, including Matt Renshaw, Usman Khwaja, and Marnus Labuschagne on international duties, the Brisbane Heat face a tough road ahead in this competition.

Sydney Sixers

After a sedate start, the Sixers have gradually picked up form as the season progressed and have now won each of their last 4 matches. As a result, they are second on the points table, trailing the Scorchers who have a better NRR.

The top-order batsmen have played consistently well for the Sixers in the last few matches. Kurtis Patterson, Jordan Silk, Josh Phillippe, and James Vince have all got runs under their belt and are only getting better with each match. With Steven Smith scheduled to join the squad towards the end of the season, we can only expect the batting to get stronger.

The Sixers went into this season with a largely unchanged squad and that has reaped benefits for them. Chris Jordan, Hayden Kerr, and Dan Christian lend all-round capabilities to the squad, while draft pick Izharulhaq Naveed, who has picked up 5 wickets in 4 matches, has strengthened an already solid spin department.

Veteran speedster Sean Abbott is expectedly among the top wicket-takers in the team along with Kerr, while Jackson Bird and Ben Dwarshuis have also found themselves picking up wickets at regular intervals.

BH vs SYD Betting Tips

The Sydney Sixers have been one of the most successful franchises in the BBL and they have carried on with their form in the current season too. The batting line-up looks in excellent form, and the team has plenty of reliable all-rounders too.

On the other hand, Brisbane Heat has struggled quite a bit of late and despite some brilliant individual performances, has failed to achieve the desired results. That is why we are backing the visitors here.
