SYDNEY SIXERS VS SYDNEY THUNDERS TEAM PREVIEWS
Sydney Sixers have lost just three matches in BBL 2021-22 and two of them were against the Perth Scorchers in the last few days. For the most part, the Sydney Sixers have been the team to beat this season and that has been down to an incredible amount of depth in its squad. The batting is led by Josh Philippe and Moises Henriques. It seems that both of them have just dropped a bit in form after their fantastic start but you don’t want to count any of them out just yet.
Daniel Hughes, Jack Edwards, and Dan Christian give the Sydney Sixers plenty of batting firepower. The addition of Shadab Khan to the lineup should help lengthen the batting a bit as well.
The bowling attack of the Sydney Sixers is sensational. Hayden Kerr is having a breakthrough year, Sean Abbott is always amongst the wickets, and Ben Dawrshius picked up five wickets in the previous match. You still have Shadab Khan, Jackson Bird, and Dan Christian to call upon as needed.
Sydney Thunder is a team that you do not want to take lightly at all. It matches up very well against the Sydney Sixers and could certainly end up on the winning side. Just like the Sydney Sixers, Sydney Thunder has a very strong bowling attack as well. Mohammad Hasnain, Daniel Sams, Gurinder Sandhu, and Nathan McAndrew format pace bowling unit as good as any in BBL 2021-22.
The batting lineup has been affected by the absence of Sam Billings but Alex Hales seems to have top gear and that is a great sign for Thunder moving forward. Matthew Gilkes and Jason Sangha are the only two other ‘genuine’ batsmen in the side and so the pressure is going to be on them to perform in every match.
While Oliver Davies, Ben Cutting, and Daniel Sams can all bat very well, neither of them is the most dependable or risk-averse.
