Date and Time: 9th January 2022, 1:45 PM IST
Venue: International Sports Stadium, Coffs Harbor
Although a decent batting track is expected at the International Sports Stadium, weather is a concern on Sunday. The pacers should get the ball to move around in the early stages, making for a good contest between the bat and ball. As the match progresses, the pitch should get a touch better to bat on. Wickets in hand will be key, with both teams likely to chase upon winning the toss. Although rain is on the forecast, at least a shortened game should take place.
Today’s SIX vs SCO Dream11 match top picks
Josh Philippe: After a bright start to his BBL 2021-22 campaign, Philippe has blown hot and cold over the last few games. Against a team based out of his home state, Philippe would be keen to get back into runscoring form, making him a must-have in your SIX vs SCO Dream11 fantasy team.
Colin Munro: Colin Munro is within touching distance of overtaking Ben McDermott in the runscoring charts, sitting in second place with 351 runs. The southpaw has been lethal in the middle overs, taking down both spinners and pacers. With form on his side, Munro is one to watch out for in this game.
Daniel Christian: Daniel Christian nearly pulled off a heist against the Scorchers in the reverse fixture, scoring a 50 with the bat in hand. He has been consistent with the ball as well, holding him in good stead ahead of the game.
Andrew Tye: Andrew Tye has been the standout player in this BBL season, currently leading the bowlers for most wickets. The Perth Scorchers' pacer has used his variations brilliantly with his death-bowling skills bound to have an impact, making him a fine addition to your SIX vs SCO Dream11 fantasy team.
