The 34th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2021-22 will see the Sydney Sixers (SIX) take on the Perth Scorchers (SCO) at the Carrara Oval in Queensland on Tuesday.
Both the Sixers and Scorchers have been brilliant in the BBL this season, sitting pretty at the top of the table. While the Sixers trail the Scorchers by a couple of points, Moises Henriques and co. have been the team to beat this season. However, they face a strong Scorchers side whose bowling attack has been the standout aspect of their campaign. With both teams itching to get one over the other, another riveting contest beckons between the most successful teams in BBL history at the Carrara Oval.

SCO vs SIX, BBL 2021-22, Match 34
Date and Time: 4th January 2022, 1:45 PM IST
Venue: Carrara Oval, Queensland
A decent batting track is expected at the Carrara Oval with the ball likely to skid on nicely under the lights. The pacers should get the ball to move around in the early stages, keeping the batters on their toes. However, there should not be much turn on offer for the spinners, who will need to be clever with their line and length. Wickets in hand will be key, with both teams likely to prefer chasing upon winning the toss.
Today’s SCO vs SIX Dream11 match top picks
Josh Philippe: Josh Philippe will relish an encounter against the Perth Scorchers, a team based out of his home state. Although the Sixers opener has been decent this season, he is due for a big score, holding him in good stead ahead of the game.
Ashton Turner: Ashton Turner has blown hot and cold in the BBL this season with no fifties to his name. Although Turner is likely to bat lower down the order, he has the skills to dominate the bowling attack with his power-hitting, making him a must-have in your SCO vs SIX Dream11 fantasy team.
Sean Abbott: Sean Abbott has been the talk of the town after his sensational all-round performance against the Brisbane Heat the previous week. He has been in fine form with the ball for the Sixers, which should make him a fine addition to your SCO vs SIX Dream11 fantasy team.
Andrew Tye: Andrew Tye has been brilliant for the Scorchers this season, picking up 13 wickets in eight BBL games. The Scorchers speedster has used his variations brilliantly and has also riled up batters with extra pace. With the conditions playing into his hands, Tye is one to watch out for in this game.
