Adelaide Strikers vs Sydney Sixers Challenger Match Betting Tips 26/01/2022

The Challenger game of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Adelaide Strikers take on Sydney Sixers at Sydney Cricket Ground on Jan 26 (Wednesday). The match is to begin at 1:55 pm IST.

Teams Status

Adelaide Strikers

Not so long ago, few expected Adelaide Strikers to be in the position they are in now: a match away from the BBL final.

They had started the year 2022 with a six-match losing streak, much of which was carried over from last year, but that almost seems like ancient history now.

They have since won six consecutive matches, which stretches to seven wins in eight. They are easily the form team of the tournament right now.

Their latest prey were Sydney Thunder, whom they knocked out albeit by a small margin.

Englishman Ian Cockbain plucked out of thin air due to Covid absentees, was the hero again with a 65 – his second half-century in the last three outings, while Harry Conway bowled a superb final over to defend 14 runs.

At this stage, the Sixers and Perth Scorchers have traditionally been the side to feat but the way the Strikers have been going about, their juggernaut might also be giving the other two a headache.

Sydney Sixers

Sydney Sixers have already been thwarted once in their attempt to reach the BBL final but now get one more chance to do the same.

In the qualifier they lost to Perth Scorchers, they suffered a batting collapse up top while chasing a gargantuan 190. Jordan Silk’s runs have dried up while Josh Philippe’s production has also seen a bit of a dip.

Batting failures have not been uncommon for the Sixers this term. The Sixers have had a few of those actually. That said, they also have the reputation of coming alive during this part of the season so their batting trouble should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Sydney Sixer to win @ 1.87

Adelaide are in superb form but we’re going to side with the winning pedigree of Sydney here. They are the two-time defending champions and know much more about the playoffs than Adelaide. Granted they have had their troubles of late but as the adage goes: “form is temporary, class is permanent.” The odds for this play have been sourced from Parimatch.

Tip: Ian Cockbain to score less than 23.5 runs @ 1.87

Ian Cockbain has been a remarkable late-season find for Adelaide and one of the main reasons why his side has made it this far. That said, his approach to batting is not without its risk, which can pay off at times and not the others. The 34-year-old Liverpudlian did score a 71 the last time the Strikers faced the Sixers but it was a match that meant little to the Sixers. We’re going to take a punt on him failing. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


Before the Strikers’ win in their last clash, the Sixers were in complete control of this fixture and had won four straight. We expect the Sixers to get back to their winning ways and book a place in the final opposite Perth.
