Big Bash League 2017-18 9th T20 match between Adelaide Strikers v Sydney Sixers on December 28 at Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney.
The Sydney Sixers have lost both of their opening two matches against the Thunder and Scorchers so they are under pressure to get their first win and keep their Big Bash hopes alive even at this early stage.
They have batted first in both of their matches so far but been unable to register enough to beat their opponents (149/9 against the Thunder and 132 all out against the Scorchers) so the pressure is on their top order and the likes of Roy and captain Henriques to improve.
The Strikers won their opening match against the Sydney Thunder in comfortable fashion as they won by 53 runs and they will be looking to build on that here and make it a Sydney double.
Both their batting and bowling impressed in the opening game with Carey and Head getting them off to an excellent start, while Rashid Khan, Peter Siddle and all-time BBL leading wicket-taker Ben Laughlin shared 8 wickets for just 50 runs between them.
