Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Sixers compete at the Bellerive Oval on Sunday, and have had precisely the same start to their Big Bash League campaign for 2020-21. In their first match, both the Sixers and Strikers suffered a loss against Hobart Hurricanes.
They had turned things around and got their campaign going. In their second match, the Sixers completely trashed the Melbourne Renegades. The second game of the Strikers was not as comfortable as the one of their opposition, but it still ended in a victory. The Hobart Hurricanes were defeated by 5 wickets. Both sides will be desperate to get two wins on the trot and embark on a potential run as they reach this game.
At the Bellerive Oval, we should expect a complete game as the chances of precipitation is just 20 %. The temperature is about 15 °C.
The Bellerive Oval pitch is a nice batting surface, with the shorter square boundaries also coming into play. While the pacers should get extra bounce and pace off the surface, once they get themselves in the batsmen should feel at ease.
The spinners could even get some turn, but the dimensions of the ground need to be wary of them. With this being a day game, as the game progresses, the conditions shouldn’t change much. With 160-170 being par at this venue, both teams will look to bat first.
