One of the most anticipated cricket leagues in the World, the Big Bash is about to start with it’s 11th season. Yes that’s right, 11th Season. This competition has been entertaining the cricketing world with it’s amazing display for a decade now and as the tournament is about to begin we will have an in-depth look at the teams and their chances of winning and the position in which they might finish in the league.
First off we start with the defending Champions Sydney Sixers who were quite brilliant last year and have been one of the sides in the competition ever since its inception the most consistent sides in the competition. This is the reason why they have won back to back titles in the last two seasons.
Let us look at their team composition :
1. James Vince -
The Englishman has been a core part of the Sydney Sixers’ setup for a long while and he has been providing them with some consistency at one end while the other batsmen have the freedom to berserk at the other end.
2. Josh Phillipe -
Josh Phillipe was one of the huge reasons why Sydney Sixers have been so dominant and why they have been so successful. He goes crazy at the start and makes sure that his side starts off well with momentum on their side. Especially when chasing targets and in targets of 150-170 he just starts off with a bang and tries to end the game and make it one sided while the power play is over. Will the other teams come up with a game plan against him? Or will we say a three-peat-repeat.
3. Moses Henriques -
The Captain of the side, Moses henriques is the backbone of the Sydney line-up. He contributes with the bat, ball, his fielding, his captaincy and has loads of experience too. He can strike a long ball but he can very well play the role of the anchor and rotate the strike if the situation demands.
4. Daniel Hughes -
Daniel Hughes has also been a key contributor to the ruthless batting line-up of the Sydney Sixers. He can strike a long ball and also rotate the strike. He is someone who can find the boundaries at will and also find huge gaps.
5. Jordan Silk -
Perhaps one of the best fielders in the tournament and the whole of World Cricket. He is an example of a hundred percent commitment and someone who gives it all on the field. He is also someone who can clear the boundaries at will and up the scoring rate.
