Sydney Sixers Women vs Adelaide Strikers Women Prediction
Sydney Sixers Women have lacked consistency this season. After a solid start to the season in which they won their first two games, their momentum has been derailed.
They rediscovered some form recently by winning back-to-back games, but failed to build on those results, losing to Brisbane Heat Women by 8 wickets in their most recent match.
Adelaide Strikers Women, meanwhile, have endured a rather tough time in the competition. They did, however, manage to snap a four-game losing streak by beating Sydney Thunder Women by 18 runs last time around.
Sydney Sixers Women look the much stronger unit on paper and should be able to eke out the win.
Prediction: Sydney Sixers Women to win.
