Sydney, January 29 at 1:30 PM IST
Sydney Sixers would be looking for a hat-trick of wins when they meet Adelaide Strikers at Sydney Cricket Ground on Tuesday. Foreign recruits, in the form of Englishmen Tom Curran and James Vince, have given leaned results in favour of Sixers in the last few outings. With three more league games before the business end of the competition, Sydney Sixers would want to hold on to the current (second) spot on the BBL ladder.
Adelaide Strikers have been struggling and come into the fixture on the back of three losses on the bounce. Their superstar bowler, Rashid Khan has not been as effective to make a significant contribution to the side. With time running out, the Strikers must bring their campaign back on track if they are to advance further.
