Sydney Sixers vs Brisbane Heat who will win BBL13 Final?

It’s one of the most intriguing battles in the Big Bash League. The Sydney Sixers and Brisbane Heat are two of the most successful teams in BBL history. They have been involved in numerous clashes since the league’s inception.

Their conflicts have always been a see-saw battle. In this context, the Sydney Sixers will face Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League final. This game will take place at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney.

Current Form Sydney Sixers

The 3-time BBL champions, Sydney Sixers, started the league on an ideal note. They won their first three games against Melbourne Renegades, Hobart Hurricanes, Adelaide Strikers, respectively. Sydney then won 4 of their next seven games and lost only one, while their two games ended with no result due to rain.

Sydney Sixers qualified for the playoffs without any fuss. The only concern ahead of them was Perth Scorchers in the last league game when they were in third and Perth were in second. The win at that game was the key to secure 2 chances to qualify for the finals. They made that look easy and defeated Perth in the high-scoring game to end the league stage as the second-placed side.

Sixers then defeated the top-placed Brisbane in the Qualifier 1 and became the first team to secure a place in the finale of BBL 13. The Sydney Sixers will aim to capitalize on their victory against the Brisbane Heat.

Current Form Brisbane Heat

Brisbane Heat, conversely, won 7 out of their 10 games and lost only one to end the league stage as the top-placed side.

Last year’s runners-up were looking all set to make their way to the finale straightway with a win in first Qualifier, but Brisbane Heat’s first big test came against Sydney Sixers in Qualifier 1 which they lost.

The strong looking side won’t be able to chase down the target of 153 and faced a defeat by a big 39-run margin, reminding the fact why Sydney Sixers are above them in head to head battles.

Can they bounce back against a rejuvenated Sydney Sixers team?
