International Sports Stadium, Coffs Harbour, Pitch Report: Batting And Bowling Sydney Sixers vs Adelaide Strikers, 45th Match Preview (1/17/23): SYS vs ADS, 45th Match, Big Bash League 2022-23 Live Cricket Score, Commentary

The Sydney Sixers have won seven of their nine games in the tournament, and one more victory would almost certainly secure their position in the playoffs. This team has clearly become stronger after the additions of Steve Smith and Nathan Lyon. The Sixers are one of the most consistent teams in the tournament, and they would want to keep it that way.

Adelaide Strikers have won five of their 11 tournament games, and this is a crucial game for them. Chris Lynn will not be participating in the event any more, and he will be much missed. Travis Head and Alex Carey are both available for the rest of the season and will play significant roles.

Coffs Harbour Stadium pitch report

For the last two seasons, the Sydney Sixers have played a handful of their home games at Coffs Harbour. This stadium will host one Big Bash League match this season. Because this stadium only hosts a small number of matches, there is usually a packed house.

There have only been two T20 matches played there, both of which were won by the pursuing sides. In those matches, the average first-inning score was 164 runs. The hitters have liked batting on this surface, and there are no obvious demons on this track.

The boundaries of this stadium are not particularly large, and hitters may easily clear them. It has been demonstrated that the spinners have some traction on this circuit, and they may once again be lethal here. Run-scoring will be simple with such a speedy outfield. After winning the toss, any captain may choose to chase.

Weather Forecast

There will be a 14 percent chance of rain throughout the contest, which might cause delays. Temperatures will hover around 25 degrees Celsius.
