Both sides are loaded with the right amount of talent and experience that could be put to witness for the second and final team before the playoffs commence. As far as their position in the BBL points table is concerned, Sixers, who are at the third spot with 7 wins in 11 matches, penned a 45-run win in the recent matchup against the Melbourne Renegades. Meanwhile, the second-placed Thunder suffered a 9-run loss to the Hobart Hurricanes in what could’ve been an easy triumph for the former, if not for their middle-order failure. Nonetheless, the Thunder would be backing themselves to learn from their mistake and go full-throttle over the defending champions.

Moises Henriques Stats in T20
After a terrific start to BBL 11, the skipper had lost momentum midway in the tournament. Luckily, he found his charm with the willow in the lately concluded match against the Renegades, wherein he smashed a 35-ball 49 to take his overall tally to 311 runs across 9 innings, all while maintaining a strike rate of over 140. All in all, just the right moment for the No.4 batter to grab a spot as a captain or vice-captain in the fantasy line-up.
Hayden Kerr Stats in T20
The left-arm fast-medium has been a menace with the ball, accounting for 17 scalps in 10 innings at an awe-striking average (11.41) and economy (6.42). Kerr’s variations have been a force to deal with, and quite possibly, he could aid the Sixers in the early success over the Thunder.

Daniel Sams Stats in T20
Sams has enjoyed being the go-to bowler for the Thunder and this season hasn’t been any different for the left-arm pacer, who has picked 16 scalps at 22.18 and at an economy rate of 8.25. Not to mention, he’s been asked to bat up the order and strike blows, something which he has done with perfection in the concurrent edition
Jason Sangha Stats in T20
His regular onslaughts with the willow have impressed the cricket fraternity, to the extent, he’s almost a favorite in the fantasy line-up in BBL 11. The top-order batter has scored 360 runs in 9 innings while averaging a whopping 60.0 and maintaining a strike rate in excess of 130. With the form in his stride, Sangha can be backed for a decent show at SCG.
Both sides have had a solid run heading into the contest, however, the Thunder’s middle-order woes and over-reliance on the batting trio of Alex Hales, Jason Sangha and Matthew Gilkes could prove fatal in this feud. The Sixers, on the other hand, have a solid middle-order that has risen on the occasion on a number of occasions in BBL 11. Not to forget, the Sixers possess three of the highest wicket-takers in the ongoing edition of BBL in Hayden Kerr, Sean Abbott and Ben Dwarshuis, who are potent enough to swing the game in their favor. As per SIX vs THU today match prediction and Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder cricket betting tips, Sixers are slight favorites for the Sydney derby.
