Sydney Sixers have a clear upper hand over Brisbane Heat when it comes to head-to-head records. They have beaten the 2012-13 champions on twelve occasions, while Brisbane have got the better of the three-time champions thrice. With the current run of form also favoring them, Sydney Sixers are the outright favorites for this match.

Brisbane Heat have been flirting with danger since the beginning of the 2021/22 Big Bash League season. They have never been consistent, but have ground out favorable results now and then to somehow cling on the play-off places for dear life.
Jimmy Peirson’s team started off with two successive defeats, but two wins in the next three fixtures helped them ascend the standings. Just as when one would have thought Heat’s fire was extinguished with back-to-back defeats against Melbourne Stars and Sydney Sixers, they found the strength to rekindle their flame again and register a crucial win over Hobart Hurricanes.
Sydney Sixers’ campaign has not been half as adventurous, as they have always been at the top of their game. Moises Henriques’ boys have won six of their eight matches, losing out only against Hobart Hurricanes, while rain played spoilsport in their previous game against Melbourne Renegades.

A 14-run win against Hobart Hurricanes in their previous outing might tempt the Brisbane Heat management to field an unchanged playing XI, but a closer inspection will highlight that they are yet to find their perfect combination. Max Bryant, who is having a really difficult season, could score only 9 runs last time out and might have to make way for Tom Cooper, while for conceding over 8 runs per over without picking up wickets against Hobart, Jack Wildermuth might see his place being snatched away by Liam Guthrie.
Sydney Sixers’ previous match against Melbourne Renegades was a washout, but we did have the toss and hence can assume the line-up the Sixers’ management will field against Brisbane. Pakistani all-rounder Shadab Khan is expected to feature in what is one of the most formidable playing XIs of the competition.
Josh Philippe: Given his form and the maturity he is showing, it will be a big letdown if Josh Philippe does not make it as one of Australia’s premier T20 batters in a not-so-distant future. He is currently the Sixers’ leading run-scorer, having scored 295 runs in 8 matches. Philippe’s top two knocks of the season came against Melbourne Stars, as the 24-year-old scored 83 runs in the first meeting against Glenn Maxwell’s team and then struck an unbeaten 99 in the return leg fixture.
James Bazley: With almost their entire batting contingent being out of touch in unison, Brisbane Heat has had to rely on their bowlers to grind out results and James Bazley has arguably been their most reliable performer. He is currently Brisbane’s joint-highest wicket-taker, having picked up 11 wickets in eight matches. Bazley picked up a three-wicket haul against Melbourne Renegades earlier in the competition, while he showed his batting prowess in the last match against Hobart Hurricanes by scoring an unbeaten 44.
