Today cricket match prediction: Sean Abbott’s New Ball Burst Brings Sixers Victory

Sean Abbott’s new ball clinical show helped the Sydney Sixers skyrocket in the 2022-23 Big Bash League and easily win. Abbott with a new ball on a useful surface he hit twice before coming back and adding another ball and in four overs he finished with figures of 3/9 and in Derby Sydney he hit the Thunder. Reduced to 133/8. Easily cornered the target with 22 balls.

The Sixers bowled without hesitation after winning the toss, and Abbott gave his team a great start by pinning Alex Hale in the leg before the turnstile. Matthew Gilkes was dismissed in the next over and Abbott was back again, this time catching Oliver Davis right in front of him. After four overs, the Thunder teetered at 12/3 and were always difficult to bounce back.

Sam Whiteman and Alex Ross stopped the slide in a much-needed partnership, but also used up a lot of supplies in the process. To go over 6 needed a 6 from Ross in the next over. Finally, it took a major cameo from Ben Cutting for that total to surpass his 130 mark.

The Thunder were happy with their start on the ball then, and for a while it looked like the 133 was going to pull the trick. Chris Green batted twice and Brendan Doggett interfered with James Vince’s wicket, with the front three scoring single figures in the first four overs. It was then a one-way street as skippers Moises Henriquez and Jordan Silk teamed up to keep the Thunder at bay.

Silk started with several borders and Henriquez pulled Daniel Sams to ditch the first border. The duo each won a boundary ahead of Green in the final over as the Sixers raced to 85/3 by the end of the 12 overs. Both Enriquez and Silk gained confidence as the run continued to flow. Silk marked 50 on just 37 balls and Enriquez hit his milestone with back-to-back borders to end the game.
