Sixers haven't looked great but I feel like they are due a win.

Sydney and Adelaide are polar opposites- the forecast can be dreadful in Adelaide and it will magically not rain when the Cricket is on whereas I reckon there could be zero chance of rain in Sydney and there would still somehow be a rain delay.

I remember the Adelaide test in the 2010 Ashes where we were agonisingly close to a rained-out draw. Day 5 and the Poms needed two wickets pretty quickly as there was a deluge worth about 90mm on its way. Low and behold, about five minutes after they took the last wicket to win by an innings, the downpour started.

The rain that day was biblical.

The SCG is like a magnet for rain, it can be dry in most other places around Sydney but somehow the rain will just hang around the SCG.

It looks like the rain is clearing on the radar but who knows when it will actually stop at the ground.

Looks like it will clear for sure soon although super light drizzle doesn't register on the radar. Should get a game in

Seems like the rain isn't heavy enough to stop a game of cricket but you obviously can't start a game while it's raining.

I think they said before that they can start a game if it's raining lightly enough that they wouldn't come off if they were playing. Might have to stop to take the covers off though

This is the last BBL match on channel 7 until Monday so they'll be pissed off if this match is severely rain reduced or abandoned.
