SIX vs HEA Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: BBL 2022/23 Challenger | SS vs BH Dream11 Prediction Today | SCG Pitch Report

A spot in the BBL 12 Final awaits. The consistent Sydney Sixers and in-form Brisbane Heat do battle to play Perth Scorchers for the chance to lift the trophy this Saturday.

However, both teams suffer a below as the Australian Test stars are unavailable, after Steve Smith and Usman Khawaja in particular lit up the tournament in recent weeks. How the Heat adjust with Labuschagne, Renshaw and Swepson also unavailable remains to be seen, with the onus on young players to deliver on this big stage.

The Heat’s best chance looks to be via their bowling attack. Sixers have been somewhat reliant on Smith in recent matches, with the likes of Josh Philippe and Kurtis Patterson not stringing together enough significant scores. So, can the Brisbane-based team make early inroads and force Henriques, Silk and co. to recover the innings?

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Sydney Sixers:

  • It has been a poor season for Josh Philippe (avg. 17.85), who the Sixers need to step up in the absence of Smith. Philippe has scores of 1, 10, 8 and 1 in his past four knocks.
  • Philippe career record vs Heat: 9 inns, 198 runs, avg. 28.29, SR 127.74.
  • Moises Henriques has scored 45*, 23* and 58 in his past three matches. Overall against Heat, Henriques has scored 267 runs in 13 innings at an average of 24.27 and strike rate of 133.50.
  • Jordan Silk recently signed a new deal with the Sixers and is the franchise’s leading run-scorer this season (353). He is averaging 50.42 with a strike rate of 129.77.
  • Silk smashed 41 off 23 balls against Heat earlier in BBL 12.
  • Sean Abbott has taken an impressive 26 wickets in just 12 innings vs Heat (avg. 14.08, econ. 8.48). Given the seamer has taken 18 wickets in his last seven BBL matches, it promises to be a tough ask for the Heat.
  • Also, Abbott is far and away the highest wicket-taker in T20s at the SCG: 44 inns, 72 wickets, avg. 16.92, SR 12.39.
  • Steve O’Keefe concedes just 5.95 per over in ten innings vs Heat (10 wickets). Also, O’Keefe is often brilliant at the SCG: 36 inns, 38 wickets, econ. 6.54.

Brisbane Heat:

  • Nathan McSweeney scored 84 off 51 balls against Sixers earlier this season. Josh Brown smashed 62 off 23 in the same game.
  • Sam Hain will be crucial for the Heat. He comes into this match in some decent form, with scores of 33*, 73*, 26, 1* and 8* in his past five matches. Expect him to get more of an opportunity today with the Test players unavailable.
  • Michael Neser has taken the third-most wickets in this BBL (24) at a strike rate of 12.7. He has dismissed Josh Philippe four times in 30 balls in T20s (51 runs).
  • James Bazley takes one wicket per innings on average against Sixers (5 inns, 5 wickets). He is also striking every 15.1 deliveries this season (16 wickets).
  • Xavier Bartlett produced a man of the match performance in the Knockout against Renegades (3/18).

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 18, Sixers 13, Heat 4, 1 N/R.
  • Earlier this season, Heat won a high-scorer against Sixers after a contentious catch by Michael Neser at the Gabba. The other meeting was a no result.
  • Sixers lead Heat 4-2 at the SCG.
  • Daniel Hughes has the most runs in SIX-HEA matches: 12 inns, 333 runs, avg. 27.75, SR 125.66.
  • Josh Philippe has scored 788 runs in T20s at the SCG (avg. 34.25, SR 141.22). Only Moises Henriques (972) has more.
  • Jimmy Peirson averages just 16.87 in 15 matches against Sixers. Sean Abbott has dismissed him three times in 31 deliveries (46 runs).

SCG Pitch Report and Weather

The last match was the Sydney Smash on January 21st, where only Steve Smith batted freely on a slow pitch. In that game, Sixers (187) hammered Thunder (62), with Steve O’Keefe taking 4/10.

The average first innings score at the SCG in BBL 12 is 154.8, with a run rate of 8.32. The team batting first has won four of the five matches.
