Sydney Sixers will Win
The leadership of Adam Zampa is turning out to be useless this year and the team management will be waiting for some magic to happen to change things in the ongoing tournament.
Tom Rogers and Joe Clarke witnessed a poor start to the seasons and have not contributed to the team’s success much. Expectations are high from Marcus Stoinis and he is the only one who can change things in the Stars’ camp.
The Stars are struggling with their bowling lineup but skipper Zampa is doing good with his variations.
After a disappointing start for the Sydney Sixers, Moises Henriques has suddenly revived the whole team and things are now working positively for the team. They did lose an unexpected game against the Brisbane Heat but the Sixers have a good quality of players who are capable enough to bounce back. Josh Phillippe and James Vince have given a start to the team and Steve O'Keefe is the leading wicket-taker for the team right now.
Sydney Sixers have good depth in their batting lineup and their bowlers have done a great job in the ongoing season of BBL. We predict a win for the Sydney Sixers in the upcoming fixture.
