Conditions are mostly sunny, with any cloud cover dissipating toward the end of the game. Throughout the contest, the temperature will dip from 24 to 20 degrees.

The team batting first has won 53.5% of T20 matches at the SCG. We anticipate that both teams will want to bat in this game first.

In this year’s tournament, the highest score on this pitch was 187-2, with most first innings totals ranging from 145-155. This pitch has spin, as well as pace and bounce.

Sydney Sixers Team News & Probable Playing XIs

We expect left-handed opener Daniel Hughes to return to the XI for this game, however, he will be under a lot of pressure to fill the vacancy left by Steve Smith. Hughes scored 28 points in his last BBL outing, and we don’t expect any additional changes to the lineup.

With a BBL final versus the Perth Scorchers on the line, we predict a thrilling Challenger match at the SCG. Brisbane Heat is significantly weaker without their three-Test hitters, but Steve Smith is perhaps a bigger loss for Sydney Sixers. However, the Sixers have Sean Abbott, a superb BBL bowler, and we anticipate him to make a difference. Sydney Sixers are expected to win.
