The first doubleheader of Big Bash League 2019-20 in New Year takes place on Sunday when Sydney Sixers face off Adelaide Strikers in the first match of the day.
Sydney Sixers are flying high as they are unbeaten in their previous three games. They are comfortably sitting at the second spot of the table with 4 wins in 6 games. Despite injured Sean Abbott they managed to restrict Renegades in their previous game to a paltry 153 and chased it down with six wickets to spare. Allrounder Tom Curran is in outstanding form for them.
Adelaide Strikers on the other hand faced their first defeat in their last game against Sydney Thunder when they just fell short of Thunders’ score by just three runs. Jake Weatherald, Alex Carey, Rashid Khan are in great form and the third placed Strikers would want to get past Sixers and claim the second spot.
