STR vs SIX Dream11 Prediction: With three wins in a row and hoping for a fourth to cement their chances in the top four, Adelaide Strikers would take on the Sydney Sixers in their final league match of the season. Though the Strikers have won five matches so far, and are seated at the fourth spot at present with 24 points in their purse, they have a lot at stake, considering they are facing heated competition from both Hobart Hurricanes and Melbourne Stars, who have won six matches each, with 24 and 22 points respectively. A defeat at this stage at the hands of defending champions – Sydney Sixers – could contain their plans for a spot in the knockout. The Sixers, too, have the momentum in their favor and would want to build on it in the two matches that remain in their league run.

Peter Siddle Stats in T20
The veteran pacer has outwitted the batters with ease in BBL 11. So far, he’s picked 21 scalps in 13 matches at 19.00 and maintained an economy of 8.28. Not just the powerplay, Siddle’s been an equally crucial player in containing the runs in the death overs. His variations can likely grab him a wicket or two in the bowler-friendly conditions at Adelaide Oval.
Jonathan Wells Stats in T20
The middle-order batter’s harmonious contributions with the bat have been a major positive for the Strikers in BBL 11. The recent match against the Melbourne Stars, wherein Wells struck a 49-ball 73, was once again a testimony of how bankable cricketer he is under crunch moments. He tops the batting charts for the Strikers in BBL 11 with 382 runs and 3 half-centuries while averaging 31.83.

Moises Henriques Stats in T20
The skipper’s back in form with match-winning knocks of 49 and 47* in the last two matches against Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Thunder respectively. A prolific striker of the ball, Henriques would be backing himself for an explosive form of play against the Striker’s pace attack at the Adelaide Oval.
Josh Philippe Stats in T20
For someone who has smashed 4 fifties in BBL 11 and scored in excess of 380 runs while striking over 147, Philippe finds himself as a must pick from the Sixers, in fact, a feasible choice as a captain or vice-captain in the fantasy line-up. Not to forget, he could garner valuable fantasy points when keeping the gloves.
Though the Adelaide Strikers look settled at present, the Sydney Sixers are far more bankable to perform collectively in the upcoming matchup to foil the Strikers’ chances of a triumph. With the batting trio of Josh Philippe, Daniel Hughes and Moises Henriques posting sublime exhibitions off late, and the bowling attack comprising the likes of Sean Abbott, Hayden Kerr, Ben Dwarshuis and Steve OKeefe being lethal as ever, one could anticipate the defending champions to forge a win over the Strikers. As per STR vs SIX today match prediction and Adelaide Strikers vs Sydney Sixers cricket betting tips, the Sydney Sixers are likely to gain an upper hand at the Adelaide Oval.
