SYD vs BH Team Previews

Sydney Sixers

The Sydney Sixers won their first 3 matches of the season. However, they have managed to collect just 2 points from the next 3 games, as the latest 2 matches were abandoned without a result. Nevertheless, the team is currently in second place on the table and is well-poised to make it to the playoffs.

James Vince and Josh Philippe have been consistent performers at the top of the order and will hope to give the Sixers a strong start. However, the batting lower down the order hasn’t been the most consistent. While Jordan Silk is the leading run-getter for the team this season, he hasn’t received the required support from the other batsmen.

Mosies Henriques, Jack Edwards, and Joel Davies have been rather inconsistent so far. A lot will depend on how the seamers bowl in this match. Jackson Bird is in good form and has picked 8 wickets from 5 matches. He will be supported by Ben Dwarshuis, Sean Abbott, and Edwards.

The two spinners in the squad, Todd Murphy and Steve OKeefe haven’t had much of an impact this season.

Brisbane Heat

The Brisbane Heat are in excellent form this season. Besides the Perth Scorchers, they are the only team that has yet to lose a match and are sitting comfortably at the top of the table.

The batting has been excellent so far. Skipper Colin Munro has led his team from the front, scoring an aggregate of 157 runs. He will open the batting alongside Josh Brown. There are plenty of big strikers of the ball in the middle order, including Matt Renshaw, Sam Billings, and Nathan McSweeney.

McSweeney was in particularly good form in the last match as he scored 73 from just 52 deliveries. The bowling has been another highlight of the team’s performance this season. Xavier Bartlett is the leading wicket-taker with 9 wickets and will start the attack with the new ball.

He will be supported by Michael Neser and Paul Walter. The duo has picked up 9 wickets between them. The spin attack is very strong too, with Mitchell Swepson picking up 7 wickets, and Matthew Kuhnemann with 5.

Pitch and Conditions

This is the first match in the ongoing season at Coffs Harbour and we should have a fresh pitch on our hands. The stadium has hosted just 3 BBL matches so far. There is some help for the seamers, especially when the ball is new. However, once the batsmen settle down, it gets easier to play the shots. A score of around 160 is a par score. The spinners will get some turn from this surface.

Overall, we can expect a good contest between the bat and the ball. The weather will remain cloudy but there isn’t much chance of rain.

The temperatures will remain around 25 degrees Celsius. 


SYD vs BH Betting Tips

The Sixers and Brisbane are two of the best teams in this tournament and are sitting at the top of the table. We can therefore expect a tight contest. Looking at the strengths and weaknesses of both sides, we feel that Brisbane Heat has a slight edge in this contest, thanks to its bowling attack.

Bet on the Brisbane Heat to win.
