The Sydney Sixers and Perth Scorchers will lock horns in Match 55 of the Women’s Big Bash League on Sunday at Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.
The Sixers, led by Ellyse Perry, started their campaign with two wins on the trot, but have completely lost their way. They are currently on a five-match winning streak and have already been knocked out of the competition. But the Sixers can hope for a fifth-place finish, at the very least.
The Sixers lost their previous game at the hands of the Adelaide Strikers by eight wickets. After being bowled out for 82, the Strikers chased the target down in a mere 10.2 overs. However, the Sixers can take heart from their 44-run win over the Scorchers last time around.
The Scorchers, on the other hand, have a golden chance of qualifying for the final and a win will ensure the same. However, a loss would mean the Strikers could overtake them on net run rate. In their previous match, the Scorchers beat the Melbourne Stars by four wickets.
