Sydney Sixers are miles ahead of Brisbane Heat when it comes to head-to-head statistics. They have beaten Brisbane eleven times, while the 2012-13 champions have got the better of the Sixers only thrice. With the current form also favoring the Sixers, they are the outright favorites to win this match.

Sydney Sixers: Josh Philippe (wk), James Vince, Moises Henriques (c), Daniel Hughes, Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, Sean Abbott, Hayden Kerr, Ben Dwarshuis, Shadab Khan/Lloyd Pope, Nick Winter/Mickey Edwards
Brisbane Heat: Chris Lynn, Max Bryant, Tom Cooper/Tom Abell, Ben Duckett, Sam Heazlett, Jimmy Peirson (c & wk), James Bazley, Mark Steketee, Matthew Kuhnemann, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Liam Guthrie/Xavier Bartlett
Sydney Sixers are currently placed in the second position of Big Bash League 2021/22 standings, having won five of their six matches. Moises Henriques’ team started their campaign with two consecutive victories.
Hobart Hurricanes ended their dominance in the third match by handing them a 44-run drubbing, but since then, the three-time champions have not looked back. The defending champions are coming into this match on the back of three successive triumphs.
Brisbane Heat have had a very contrasting campaign as compared to the Sixers, as they have won only two matches. Jimmy Peirson’s boys have not been able to register two positive results on the trot and suffered a 20-run defeat against Melbourne Stars in their previous assignment.
Sydney Sixers’ batting department has not done much wrong in this competition, but we might see some changes being made in the bowling unit. Mickey Edwards, who conceded nearly 10 runs per over in his last game, is likely to be replaced by Nick Winter, while Pakistani all-rounder Shadab Khan is also expected to play his first Big Bash League match of the season. Khan could replace Lloyd Pope, who conceded 11 runs per over in his previous outing.
Brisbane Heat are also expected to make a couple of changes to the lineup which lost against Melbourne Stars. Having conceded 70 runs in that match, Liam Guthrie is highly doubtful to get a place in the playing XI against the Sixers. He could be replaced by Xavier Bartlett, while the Brisbane management can also make a batting switch by replacing the out of form Tom Cooper with Englishman Tom Abell.
Sam Heazlett: Sam Heazlett has been one of the few Brisbane Heat players who has shown some consistency. The batter is currently his team’s leading run-scorer, having scored 200 runs in six innings at a strike rate of 149.25. Heazlett is yet to score a half-century this season, but he did score a 49 against Adelaide Strikers and an unbeaten 44 against Melbourne Renegades.
Josh Philippe: After a fantastic 2020/21 campaign, Josh Philippe is proving once again why he is regarded as Australia’s next big thing in limited-overs cricket. He has scored 295 runs in six matches – the most by any Sixers batter and has also struck three half-centuries. His best knock came against Melbourne Stars, where he scored an unbeaten 99.
