Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder will cross paths in the 50th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) at Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney, on January 15, Saturday.
Sydney Sixers have won seven matches and lost three contests so far, bagging 27 valuable points. The pink outfit have been placed at the third spot on the points table and looking good enough to bag the playoffs spot.
All Sixers need is to continue their winning momentum going into the final few league games as they would aim for the top two spots on the table to make it to the grand finale on a better winning note.
On the other hand, Sydney Thunder are in the second spot on the points table with eight wins and four losses, bagging a whopping 31 points. Though Thunder have very few chances to bag the top spot, they would be aiming for the pole position with only a few league games left.

SIX vs THU Predicted Playing XI
Jack Edwards, Josh Philippe (wk), Daniel Hughes, Moises Henriques (c), Daniel Christian, Shadab Khan, Sean Abbott, Hayden Kerr, Ben Dwarshuis, Jackson Bird, Todd Murphy
Matthew Gilkes, Alex Hales, Jason Sangha (c), Daniel Sams, Oliver Davies, Ben Cutting, Baxter Holt (wk), Nathan McAndrew, Gurinder Sandhu, Tanveer Sangha, Mohammad Hasnain
Both chasing and batting first sides are having equal chances to win the game at this venue. Both batters and bowlers will enjoy conditions at this venue and it would be interesting to watch how they fare on this good surface. Any score more than 180 would be enough to defend in the second innings.
SIX vs THU Match Prediction
Both sides have been at their best in the business end of the tournament. But, when we compare both sides on paper, we can expect Sydney Thunder to have a stronger side with good batting and bowling departments.
