The Perth Scorchers will welcome the Sydney Sixers to the Optus Stadium on Sunday evening with hopes of resurrecting their BBL 2018-19 campaign.

The Sixers, on the other hand, have managed to stitch together four wins in the seven matches they have played so far, despite the failure of the top order in the initial matches. However, everything is starting to click once again and they look good to win more matches going forward. Despite being an away game, the Sixers will start this match as the favourites.
