Big Bash League Predictions & Tips: Perth Scorchers v Sydney Sixers (Friday 08:40 GMT)

The Big Bash League Final will take place at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne on Friday with Perth Scorchers taking on the Sydney Sixers.

I did predict this would be the final, but I won’t take too much credit as they have been the best two teams in the competition all season.

The Scorchers ended the regular campaign top of the ladder with 40 points, while defending champions the Sixers were in second just five points off the pace.

These two have already met in the play-offs. The Scorchers claimed a 48-run victory to book their place in the final.

Perth won the toss and decided to bat first. They went on to post 189 for the loss of three wickets with Josh Inglis top-scoring with 79 from 49 deliveries.

In reply, the Sixers fell short as they were bowled out for 141. Ben Dwarshuis top-scored with 66, but they were undone some quality bowling with Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff, Ashton Agar and Andrew Tye all taking two wickets each.

That defeat gave the Sixers a second chance against the Adelaide Strikers. They took full advantage and booked their place in the final thanks to a four-wicket success.

The Sixers put Adelaide into bat and ended up taking just four wickets with Sean Abbott taking three as they reduced the Strikers to 167-4.

In reply, the Sixers reached their target on the final of the innings. Opener Hayden Kerr carried his bat with an unbeaten 98 to guide Sydney home, while Abbott contributed with 41from 20 balls.

I have already mentioned that these two have been the best all season. I am backing the Scorchers to justify their top spot finish by winning the BBL final. I expect Mitchell Marsh to carry Perth’s chances on his shoulders and get the job done.

Marsh has only played seven games this season, but he already has 342 runs to his name. His highest score is an unbeaten 100, while he has smashed 25 fours and 15 sixes. Back him to top score for the Scorchers.

For the Sixers, Moises Henriques and Josh Philippe have scored 462 runs between them this season. I am backing the former to score the most for his team and add to the 35 fours and 12 sixes he has already hit.
