Big Bash League Fantasy Cricket Tips for the Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Sixers game: The action of Big Bash League 2019-20 will resume after a day’s break as all the players will return to the ground after celebrating Christmas with their loved ones. Two of the most successful teams of the tournament, Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers will lock horns with each other in the Boxing Day T20 match.
Both the teams are coming off a loss in their previous match. Sydney had lost to Brisbane Heat while Adelaide Strikers overcame the challenge from Perth. Co-incidentally, both sides have just one win to their name in the three matches they have played.
Hence, with the aim of moving up in the points table, the players of the two teams will try to give everything they have on the field. Moises Henriques will have to lead the Sixers from the front while the Scorchers will expect Liam Livingstone to continue his fine form in the BBL.
The temperature will hover in the high 20s with a 10% chance of rain on the 26th of December.
Only one T20I match has been played at the Perth Stadium so far and in that match, Australia squashed Pakistan by 10 wickets. Australian fast bowlers had taken 7 wickets in that match hence, the pitch would assist the pacers once again.
Injury and Availability News:
The members of the Australian Test squad will be a part of the Boxing Day Test hence, they will miss the match.
