Roy and Livingstone set the tone with their 20+ cameos while Josh Inglis (72 runs) and Colin Munro (52 runs) shared a century stand to take their total to a 185 runs.

Josh Inglies – Josh scored 72 runs off 41 balls with 6 boundaries and 2 sixes in the last match. He will look to dominate the bowlers in this match too with his aggressive batting at No.3 position.

Fawad Ahmed – Fawad was almost unplayable last game with impressive figures of 2.5-1-5-2. He took advantage of the slowness of the track and strangled the opposition batsmen with his leg spinners and googlies.

Sydney Sixers chased down 151 runs comfortably with 2 overs remaining. Josh Phillipe set the platform with his 41 runs at the top. James Vince (45 runs) and Jordan Silk (38 runs) shared an unbeaten 71-run partnership to complete the chase easily.

Top players to bet on:

Josh Phillipe – Phillipe has scores of 41, 48, & 48 in the last 3 matches. He is setting the tone of their batting innings in almost every match this season. We expect him to make a big score in this match.

Ben Dwarisius – Dwarsius has picked up 11 wickets in this season so far at an economy arte of 8.2 RPO. He will look to take more wickets early in the match to put the opposition on the back foot.

Weather Conditions

Venue Details

Perth was kind of a double paced last game with the pitch becoming slow especially in the second innings. It will hard to time the ball easily as the match progresses as the pitch tends to crack under hot sun.

Toss: To Bat

Chasing becomes difficult on this track as the pitch deteriotes during the second innings.  And both captains will look to bat first here

PER vs SYD Winning Prediction

Sydney Sixers has a very balanced batting and bowling unit with a number of all-rounders in the lower order. They are on a roll and with form and momentum on their side. Perth Scorchers have regained form after a poor showing in the early part of the season. They have home conditions and bowling attack to take advantage of the conditions on offer in this match. We expect Sydney Sixers to win this match owing to their strong batting line-up.
