It’s two different scenarios for the two teams in question here. While the Adelaide Strikers have already qualified for the knockouts, Sydney Sixers are in a must-win situation. They need to win both their games in order to finish in the top four.
The slump for Sydney Sixers started in the game their skipper and star player Ellyse Perry got injured. In that game, they lost on the last ball and since then, Perry has been out of action and the Sixers have lost every game as well. They’ve lost a couple of games by big margins while the last one against Perth Scorchers was again lost in the final over. Batting has been an issue over the last few games while the bowlers have done decently.
Meanwhile, Adelaide Strikers have been on a roll. They’ve won five games in a row, including their super over win in the last game against Sydney Thunder. They did wobble a touch in the middle but they’ve overcome that and are now looking set to challenge Brisbane Heat for the top spot in the points table.
The absence of Ellyse Perry has dented the entire Sydney Sixers line-up. They’ve lost a proper top-quality batter, bowler and a gun fielder as well. They seem to be losing out on all three departments. But they need to live without their star player.
Alyssa Healy who has taken over the captaincy reins has been going through a slump as well. After a fantastic start to the tournament, her bat has gone quiet and she hasn’t been scoring runs at all. The promotion of Erin Burns to the top of the order helped her shrug off some poor form as she stroked a fifty in the last game against the Perth Scorchers. Ashleigh Gardner also found some form in the last game as she scored 54 as well. That should give the Sixers some confidence.
Gardner has also been bowling well and was the best bowler on view in the last game. Marizanne Kapp has done well with both bat and ball while Dane van Niekerk’s disappointing form with the bat in the middle has been a cause of concern. However, she has been decent with the ball, taking nine wickets in as many games.

The Adelaide Strikers have played the same XI for 10 games in a row now. They’ve used a mere 12 players in this entire tournament and that one change was also forced with Stafanie Taylor having to leave the tournament due to national commitments.
The batting has done well but it is largely on the back of their bowlers that the Strikers have found so much success. Four out of their five frontline bowlers have more than 10 wickets in this WBBL. Amanda Wellington and Sophie Devine are leading the wicket charts. They have 16 and 15 wickets respectively. Sarah Coyte and Megan Schutt have done decently as well.
With the bat, Devine has been in fabulous form. She is the leading run-getter in this season and has amassed 593 runs at an average of 74.12. Moreover, she is striking at 130.04. Suzie Bates, Tahlia McGrath, and Bridget Patterson have contributed well too. Hence, the Strikers wear a formidable look at the moment and are going very strong as well.

There is some rain predicted in Sydney on the day of the game. However, it is more towards the evening and this game is in the afternoon (2 PM start). The pitch here at the Hurstville Oval in Sydney is generally a decent one to bat on and the ball should come on to the bat nicely.
The Hurstville Oval in Sydney is a multi-sporting venue. Apart from cricket, the likes of rugby, cycling and football are also popular at this venue. Over the last few years, it is s regular venue for the Australian domestic one-day tournament (JLT Cup) and also men’s and women’s Big Bash.
Three out of the last four games that the Sydney Sixers have lost have been when they’ve batted first. They might want to bowl first. Adelaide Strikers have had success either way but would want to field first as well. That’s been the trend in this tournament and it may just continue that way
Going by current form and how the teams stack up, there is very little doubt that the Adelaide Strikers will go in as favorites for this game. They have the momentum and form behind them as well. However, they have never beaten the Sydney Sixers in the history of the WBBL. Thus, this could well be the time to break the hoodoo and get on the board against the Sixers.
