Who will win Sixers vs Heat?

Brisbane had largely failed to fire with the bat across the early rounds, but against the Adelaide Strikers they finally showed what they can do when it all clicks. Ben Duckett (78 runs) and Sam Heazlett (49) powered them to a massive score, and that combined with the strength of Chris Lynn, Max Bryant, Tom Cooper and Jimmy Peirson makes them a constant threat.

The Sydney Sixers continue to be one of the stronger Big Bash teams and once again they occupy the top 2 alongside the Perth Scorchers. They have the ideal mix of batting power and depth, spin and pace options, and a smattering of all-rounders.

It is hard to know exactly which Brisbane Heat team you will get, with their explosive style of playing leading to inconsistency. By contrast the Sydney Sixers are getting the job done in all circumstances and in all conditions, led by the incredible power hitting of star Josh Philippe. We're leaning towards the home side.
