The qualifier of the Big Bash League will bring two top teams in the competition. Table toppers Perth Scorchers will host Sydney Sixers, who are on a six-match winning streak, on January 28 at Perth Stadium. Both the teams are coming into this game on the back of successive victories in last couple of games. As the match will produce contest of highest degree, let’s look at the match prediction for the qualifier of Big Bash League 2022-23.
Sydney Sixers is likely to win the toss as they have been lucky twice on last four occasions.
Perth Scorchers will be favorites against Sydney Sixers as the side has been pretty consistent in the tournament, and likely to continue that momentum. Ashton Turner-led side dominated their last game as they registered 10-run win after scoring 212 in the 1st innings. Stevie Eskinazi (54) and Cameron Bancroft (95 off 50) batted brilliantly on the day to propel team's total followed by impressive bowling from skipper in second innings. Right arm off-break Ashton Turner picked two wickets in that game.
24-year-old Aaron Hardie is the top run-getter (458 in 14 innings) in the tournament and will be crucial for the side in the knockout game. Josh Inglis is another prolific batter who will have lot of responsibilities. Meanwhile Andrew Tye is among the leading wicket takers in the tournament. Scorchers have bunch of in-form players in their squad and as per our prediction they are more likely to win the game and qualify for the summit-clash.
Predicted powerplay score and average first inning total
The last match at Perth Stadium saw 414 runs being score at the expense of just 10-wickets. The surface is going to be a batting paradise for the batters, and we can expect yet another high scoring game. As per our prediction powerplay score is likely to be around 45-55 while the team batting score is expected to post around 185-195 on board.
