Team Analysis

Sydney Sixers 

Sydney Sixers had a tough start to the tournament as they lost two games in a row but that is a talk of the past for them. The Sixers now sit comfortably at the second position in the points table with seven wins in eleven games. They are almost certain to play the second round. In their last game, the Sixers took down table-toppers, Perth Scorchers. It was a neat bowling performance from the Sixers with Sean Abbott (3/18) leading the charge and Hayden Kerr (2/31) and Daniel Christian (2/7) aiding him.

Adelaide Strikers

The Strikers have not been consistent in terms of their performance this season. While they have won games in patches, they have lost in the same pattern. While they made a recovery after losing four consecutive games and won two games in a row, the Strikers have lost back-to-back games and have put themselves in fix. Now, they have to win every game from here to ensure they qualify for the second round. The defeat to Brisbane Heat in their last game would sting them the most.
