Sydney Thunder vs Sydney Sixers Preview

  • Sydney Sixers are confident after winning five of their last six games against Sydney Thunder.
  • Sydney Thunder has had difficulty with the ball this year, therefore the team depends on its batsmen to win games.
  • James Vince and Jordan Silk, batters with the Sydney Sixers, have combined runs scored of nearly 450.


The first Sydney derby of the season will take place when the two Sydney clubs meet in Big Bash League match number 34. Sydney Sixers have a second position in the league with 11 points after nine games, while Sydney Thunder is in third place with 10 points after eight games. On January 8 at 19:15 local time, the match begins at Sydney Showground Stadium.

Sydney Thunder is in great shape right now, and they recently defeated Perth Scorchers. They have the players that like the big moment because this is a local derby and another top-of-the-table matchup.

After their most recent victory, Sydney Sixers moved ahead of Melbourne Stars to take the 2nd spot in the BBL standings. In this harder contest, the Sixers will have to play their best with bat and ball.

Sydney Thunder vs Sydney Sixers Weather Report, Toss Prediction, and Pitch Report

Although there will be some cloud cover throughout the game, Sydney’s temperature is expected to remain between 20 and 18 degrees, so there is no chance of precipitation.

At this location, the team batting first has won 18 BBL games, while the team fielding first has won 16. We anticipate that both teams will want to take the field first because the humidity is anticipated to rise as the game goes on.

At Sydney Showground Stadium, a victory with a score of 170 or higher is typically sufficient. The surface will provide good carry for pace bowlers.

Sydney Thunder Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Daniel Sams’ successful Wednesday trip to Perth was cut short by a groin injury, although the issue is not anticipated to keep Sams out of action for very long. We don’t think the management will put him in danger for this game because Thunder appears to have a strong chance of winning the tournament.
