For two different reasons, the 38th match of the Big Bash League 2020/21 fixture will be a must-watch. Firstly, it will be a top of the table clash, where horns will be locked by the two most formidable and reliable sides of this rivalry. It will also be a derby game to add to its attractiveness.
When the Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers meet at the Manuka Oval, they will compete for bragging rights. So far, both the Sixers and Thunder have won 6 of their 9 games, but thanks to the fascinating point system of BBL, the Sixers have two more points than their rivals. Although the Thunder will be determined to steal the pole position from them, they will increase the distance.
In Canberra, there is just a 10% chance of rain tomorrow. It will be a hot day, with a temperature of approximately 31 °C.
At Manuka Oval, the pitch here is batting-friendly, particularly in the first over. The team that wins the toss should aim for a total of nearly 180. The wicked will be perfect for batting, but the pitch’s underlying character is slow, so spinners will also come into play. It’s a good batting wicket, so both skippers may want to bat first.

Both teams were excellent in the tournament, but we are concerned about the Sydney Sixers’ batting form. Thunders are very good at batting, and the majority of their players are in decent form. Also, the bowling looks very good. We believe that the Thunders have a better chance of winning the game. Let’s bet with baji.live now to win big!
