Sydney Sixers are at the top of the points table and are on a roll with victories in their last 4 matches on a trot. But, Melbourne Renegades are at the other end of the points table with just a solo win so far. Sydney Sixers have form and momentum on their side and will hope to add to the agony of the Renegades. Melbourne Renegades need to fight out against a tough side in this amtch and a win will give a huge boost to their campaign going ahead.
Sydney Sixers made an unbelievable comeback with the bat to win the game last night. They were struggling at 47/8 in 13 overs before Sean Abbott (37 runs) and Ben Dwarsius (23 runs) shared an unbeaten 59-run partnership to win off the last ball. Their decision to take power surge in 15th over gave rich dividends as the momentum changed with them scoring 41 runs of 3 overs.
Their pace trio of Ben Dwarsius (2 wickets), Sean Abbott (4 wickets), and Hayden Kerr (2 wickets) were brilliant with the ball with combined figures of 12-1-62-8. Spinners Shadab Khan and Lloyd Pope chipped in with quiet overs in the middle overs alongside Dan Christian to bowl out the opposition or 105 runs.

Sam Harper was the only player to give some tough fight with 57 runs with 35 balls with 4 boundaries and 3 sixes. Aaron Finch, Nic Maddison, Mackenzie Harvey, and Mohammed Nabi did not give good support in the middle order to build partnerships.

Coffs harbor will host their first New year`s match in 2022, but weather forecast does not look promising. Rain is expected on the match day and it might play spoilsport in this game.
International sports Stadium has conducted only very less matches so far and the only match that took place last year had scores in the range of 170-180 runs. Batsmen are expected to have a slight upper hand in this contest and bowlers might need to use their variations and plans to perfection on this pitch.
The pitch will be good to bat throughout the entire match and with rain threat and DLS equation in consideration, we expect both captains to chase the total in this game.
Sydney Sixers are the in-form team at the moment and they are looking to win their third title on a trot this season. They showcased their ability to come from tough situations and win the match last night which might give a big boost moving ahead. Melbourne Renegades have been struggling for form and are in a losing streak after winning their opening match. We expect Sydney Sixers to win this match and their domination in the league phase.
