Sydney Sixers will square off against Adelaide Strikers in the 45th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2022-23 on Tuesday, January 17 at International Sports Stadium, Coffs Harbour.

Sydney Sixers currently sit at the second spot of the BBL points table with seven wins in 11 matches. With their three group phase matches remaining before the playoff phase, the Sixers will look to assure a top-two finish for themselves in the league stage.

For Adelaide Strikers, this BBL season has been a topsy-turvy one. They kicked off their campaign with three consecutive wins but failed to extend their winning momentum and suffered four back-to-back losses. However, they were prompt enough to gain the winning momentum again. 

The Strikers, with five wins from 11 matches, are currently sitting at the fourth position of the league standings. They are coming into this encounter on the back off a 17-runs thrashing at the hands of Brisbane Heat and must be looking to bounce back stronger in the competition.
