Sam Billings, who had a career-high 64-run inning in the last match, will be fired up to have a bigger impact on the club. So far in the major event, he has crushed 160 runs at an average of 53.33 in four encounters.
Sean Abbott and Daniel Christian each took three wickets to assist their team limit the Strikers to 147 runs. He has six wickets from three matches in the league so far and might be a decent choice for this match.
The Sydney derby is always a memorable affair, but it’s much more so on Boxing Day. On their day, Sydney Thunder are undoubtedly capable of defeating Sydney Sixers, especially with the firepower offered by international hitters Alex Hales and Sam Billings, respectively. The Thunder, on the other hand, are an erratic team that is just as likely to wilt against a very good opponent in the Sixers, who are the embodiment of consistency.
However, with rain expected during the scheduled hours of play, this battle is likely to be hampered by the weather. While the in-form Sydney Sixers are worth backing if the weather conditions improve, the prudent play would be to wait until the scheduled start time to analyse the weather circumstances before making any decisions.
