The difference between league leaders Sydney Sixers and Perth Scorchers is currently 9 points, with a hand for the Scorchers. However, a few weeks ago, the situation was very different. The Scorchers had a disastrous start to their campaign, losing all their first three games.
They managed to turn it around, and they also did so in some way. The Scorchers have won all their last 5 games and are looking unstoppable. The tale of Sydney Sixers is not as dramatic as the Scorchers ‘, as it has been consistent right from the very beginning. As a result, their closest rival has a lead of 6 points. This match, therefore, will be the continuity and meteoric ascendancy of the conflict.
The Canberra conditions would be perfect for a cricket game as always. The temperature will be about 21°C, with a negligible risk of rain.
The pitch will be slower at the Manuka Oval, and the spinners are expected to play a critical role in this game.
Variable bounce may be considered as the match progresses, but there is likely to be enough swing on offer for the pacers. Against the new ball, with field restrictions in effect, run-scoring could be easy.
After winning the toss, both teams will look to bat first, with anything about 160 runs likely to be a competitive total.

Both teams are playing some excellent cricket and equally good on paper. However, Perth has played all their last 5 matches on their home turf and may take time to adapt to the slow Canberra wicket. We assume that the Sixers have a better chance of winning the game. Let’s bet with baji.live now to support your favourite cricket team!
