SYDNEY SIXERS v ADELAIDE STRIKERS: Our cricket tipster The Edge previews the Big Bash clash on Tuesday with a recommended BETDAQ bet.
The tournament favourites are back in action on Tuesday morning as the Sydney Sixers host the Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash! The Sixers come into this game hot favourites on BETDAQ Betting Exchange,, and they’ll be expected to win and keep their place at the top of the table. After winning the last two Big Bash tournaments, it looks like it will take a very good team to stop them making it three from three. Perth Scorchers also look strong at the moment, there’s a long way to go of course but it looks like they will finish first and second.
Adelaide Strikers hit in mid table having won one game from three. They were well beaten by Perth Scorchers and then they played Melbourne Renegades twice with one win and one loss. I’d be a little worried about them to be honest – Melbourne Renegades are a very poor team and they couldn’t chase 153/9 which was poor. Rashid Khan is obviously their star player but he can’t do it all on his own, the other bowlers can go around the park and their batting looks very poor paper.
When you look down the Adelaide Strikers batting, there’s definitely no star – there’s isn’t much big talent either – it’s not a big statement to suggest none of their batters would get into a good IPL team. The Sydney Sixers don’t have a major star either, but the balance of their team is superb. It’s fair to say that the likes of James Vince and Jordan Silk wouldn’t get into the IPL either, but Moises Henriques, Dan Christian and Tom Curran all would – or at least be in the mix to start. This should be a clear win for the Sixers.
WEATHER AND PITCH WATCH:
We didn’t see much Big Bash cricket here last season because of International cricket and the bio-bubble for Covid19. We only had one game here, and the first innings score was 188/6 with the Sixers defending it too. This will be the third game here this season, with two very high scores already. Ironically, they were both the same! The Sixers scored 213/4 and the Hobart Hurricanes scored 213/2 in the second game. Batting first has been an advantage given the scoring, as you’re always going to be under immense pressure with that run rate required. There’s no question what to do here if you win the toss, bat!
On the face of it, Sydney Sixers might seem a little short here at around 1.6, but I feel they are still worth backing to beat this average Adelaide Strikers side. The Sixers batting comes into the game in great form, but it’s clear the Strikers are struggling and they do lack the talent of the other sides. Rashid Khan will lead their bowling attack, but if he doesn’t do any damage then we’ll see a very big score from the Sixers as they can attack the other bowlers. This is a game for small stakes because the 1.6 is nothing to jump up and down about, but it is worth backing.
The Edge Says:
Two points win Sydney Sixers to beat Adelaide Strikers at 1.6 with BETDAQ Exchange.

Plenty to consider here with the in-running strategy. We’ve had two big scores here batting first in the tournament, and you’d have to expect good batting conditions. I would expect batting first to offer an edge, but at the same time I don’t have confidence in the Adelaide Strikers batting and I wouldn’t be keen supporting them strongly. In an ideal word from a trading point of view, Sydney Sixers would bat first and we can support them and get a nice trade. I would be happy to take on the Adelaide Strikers bowling too, apart from Rashid Khan who isn’t worth taking on.
