Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers will be up against each other in the Qualifier of BBL 2022-23. It is expected to be a thrilling contest as both teams have been consistent throughout the league phase of the tournament. 

Defending champions Perth Scorchers have put on a neat show this time around as well. The Ashton Turner-led team finished the league stage with eleven wins in fourteen games played. The Scorchers dominated their opponents on most occasions and thus are one of the title favourites. While the likes of Cameron Bancroft, Stevie Eskinazi, Aaron Hardie, and Josh Inglis have performed consistently with the bat. Meanwhile, Andrew Tye and Jason Behrendorff have ensured to restrict the opposition. 

Sydney Thunder too have been exceptional in this edition of the Big Bash League, winning ten out of the fourteen games played. The Sixers are coming into this game on the back of six successive wins. Steve Smith has been a star performer for the Sixers as the opening batter has scored two centuries in this edition. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at Perth Stadium is one of the best wickets. It offers a balance between the bat and the ball. However, teams chasing a total have won more games here and hence the same is expected during the Qualifier game.
