STR vs SIX Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: BBL 2022/23 Match 2 | STR vs SIX Dream11 Prediction Today | Adelaide Oval Pitch Report

Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Sixers meet for the first time after one of the great BBL matches last season. Hayden Kerr pulled off an outstanding win for the Sixers in the Challenger back in January, where he struck a memorable 98* off 58 balls to break Adelaide hearts.

So, can the Strikers get one over the Sixers to start the new season? Chris Lynn will line up for his new franchise in his high-profile move, and will be looking to make an immediate impact. Also, Matt Short has the potential to build on an excellent BBL 11 campaign, with a platform important for the likes of Colin de Grandhomme and Rashid Khan to launch later on.

With regards to the Sixers, they look good on paper once again. Their squad is almost identical to previous seasons, with the continuity and consistency crucial to their success. In the last three seasons, they have won the title twice and made the final the other year. If they start well here, they will enjoy an immediate lift in confidence and that is bad news for the other seven sides.
