Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder – Dream11 Fantasy predictions, Lineups and more

The 50th match of the KFC Big Bash League 2021-22 is going to be an all Sydney affair as the two teams – Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder will go head to head at the Sydney cricket ground, on the 15th of January, 2022.

Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder Preview

The first meeting between the two teams from Sydney ended up in a 30 run victory for the Sixers, and if it wasn’t for one of their other matches being called off, they would have found themselves closer to the top of the table. But things are neck and neck between the two rivals and we expect to see fireworks when they face-off, more so because they occupy the 2nd and third positions on the league table.

Hayden Kerr – By far, he has been the pick of the bowler for the Sixers in this tournament. In 11 matches, he has taken 17 wickets at an economy of 6.92 with the best figures reading 4 for 32. We expect him to continue getting those scalps for the remainder of the league.
