SYS vs SYT Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2020-21

Sydney Sixers will take on Sydney Thunder in the 48th match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at the Adelaide Oval and is set to begin at 6:45 Pm local time.

What a tournament Sydney Sixers are having. With just three losses and 8 wins, they’re settled at the helm of the points table just need one more win to qualify for the playoffs.

Josh Philippe has been scintillating for them. They’ll be happy to see runs from James Vince a well. Vince scored a top class 52 against the Scorchers. Daniel Hughes, Daniel Christian, Jordan Silk, Carlos Brathwaite forms a quality batting line up.

The bowling also have been very good with Jake Ball, Jackson Bird and Steve O Keefe. O Keefe, particularly will be very crucial on these wickets. Daniel Christian will also enjoy bowling in Adelaide.

Sydney Thunders are coming back from three back to back losses and desperately need a win to get their campaign back on track.

With Usman Khwaja, Alex Hales, Cullum Ferguson, Sam Billings, Ben Cutting, Thunders are not short on quality. 

However, apart from Sam Billings, rest other batsmen have not been very consistent. As a result, Thunders have always been short of few runs.

They’ve plenty of good bowling options in Adam Milne, Daniel Sams, Nathan McAndrew, Ben Cutting, Tanveer Sangha and Chris Green. 

The kind of bowlers these players are, we think they’ll enjoy bowling on this slow surface of Adelaide Oval. However, they’ll still needs their batsmen to get enough runs on the board.

Overall, no team is better in terms of quality but Sixers are definitely at the top of their game. Thunders on the other hand have been very inconsistent in the last few matches. We’d like to stick with Sixers as the winner of this match.

Final Verdict

Sydney Sixers to beat Sydney Thunder at 1.72 on Bet365 and 1.72 on Betway

SYS vs SYT Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Josh Philippe at 9.5 and Sam Billings at 9.0 are two top picks. Philippe is the leading run scorer of the tournament and scored 84 in the last match. Billings too have been very consistent in the last few games. He batted well for his 50 against the Hurricanes

  • Batsmen

    Alex Hales at 10.0, Usman Khawaja at 9.0, James Vince at 9.0 will form a solid batting line up. Alex Hales has been in fine form in the tournament. Usman Khawaja has also batted well. Vince scored a 50 in the last match.

  • All rounder

    Daniel Christian at 10, Carlos Brathwaite and Ben Cutting at 8.5 are quality all rounders we’ll have in our team. All three are utility cricketers and will add a lot of depth in our team

  • Bowlers

    Sean Abbott at 9.0 Steve O Keefe at 9.0 and Tanveer Sangha at 8.5 will complete our team. We think that the pitch will support the spinners so we have two spinners in our team. Sean Abbott will play his first game and is expected to start well.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Josh Philippe will be our skipper while we’ll back Daniel Christian as his deputy.

SYS vs SYT Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Alex Hales, James Vince, Usman Khawaja

  • All Rounder:Daniel Christian(vc), Ben Cutting, Carlos Brathwaite
