SYS vs PRS Final Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2020-21
Defending champions Sydney Sixers will bid to make it consecutive Big Bash League titles when they take on Perth Scorchers in the 2020-21 Final at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The two teams – who finished first and second during the group phase – meet in the showpiece on February 6 and the live action starts at 19:40 local time.
Sydney Sixers finished top of the table in the league phase and then thrashed Perth Scorchers in the Qualifier play-off. James Vince smashed 98* from 53 balls and may have reached his century had Andrew Tye not bowled a wide with the Sixers needing just one to win. The Sixers chased 168 to win in just 17 overs, in a comprehensive nine-wicket thrashing.
Perth Scorchers bounced back in the Challenger, however. Liam Livingstone hammered 77 from 39 balls as they posted 189/1 against Brisbane Heat. Aaron Hardie then claimed three wickets, albeit having been expensive, as they secured a comfortable 49-run win on the DLS method.

SYS vs PRS Toss Prediction
Perth may have regretted batting first last time they faced the Sixers but they were excellent last time out and could choose to bat first once more.
As with last year’s final, there will be nervous glances at the clouds throughout – the forecast is for showers and scattered thunderstorms with a 45 per cent chance of rain in the evening.
Judging by the test match against India, the Sydney Cricket Ground is hard and good for batting – albeit with some green patches.
