Perth Scorchers will look to maintain their five-match winning streak when they meet Sydney Sixers for the second time on January 16 (Saturday). After having a disappointing start of the season, Perth Scorchers have regained the momentum back in their past five outings, winning all of them. In the first meeting against Sydney Sixers, they set up a fighting target of 184 runs and got better off the opposition. While defending the target, Scorchers bundled out Sixers, who have power-hitters, for just 97 runs. They will look to replicate a similar performance in Canberra to maintain their spot in the top three in the points table.
The Sixers are now comfortably set at the top spot with 29 points in 10 matches, 6 points ahead of the next team. They will be looking to widen that gap and earn some more points when they clash with Perth Scorchers. Interestingly, though, the Scorchers beat the Sixers comprehensively the last time these two met this season and would be no pushovers.
The pitch of Manuka Oval offers assistance to the batsmen. However, there will be something for the pacers as well and the initial session of the match will be crucial. Once the batsmen get through that, we can witness a free flow of runs.
We are going to have a sunny day while there might be a little chance of rain, it shouldn’t be a worry. The climate will be typical and good for a game of cricket. The temperature is expected to be 24-degree Celsius and the humidity to be 30%.
The team winning the toss would be looking to bowl first as that choice has yielded better results this season at the venue.
