Fantasy Picks: Trust Alex Carey's reliability and Tom Curran's all-round ability

Our fantasy league suggestions for the game between Sydney Sixers v Adelaide Strikers

Sydney Sixers v Adelaide Strikers in Coffs Harbour

Our XI: Jake Weatherald, Daniel Hughes, James Vince, Alex Carey, Jonathan Wells, Jordan Silk, Tom Curran, Rashid Khan, Peter Siddle, Jackson Bird, Lloyd Pope
NOTE: Sydney Sixers have left out Moises Henriques and Mickey Edwards, and brought in Josh Hazlewood and Justin Avendano.
Captain: Alex Carey
He's been Mr Dependable this season, with four 40-plus scores for the Strikers in five games. He can build partnerships with the top order and can also hit out towards the end and should slot right into your XI just for his reliability.
Vice-captain: Jake Weatherald The opener is among the top run-scorers of the season, with 204 runs from five games. He's been in great form since the first-class season late last year and is coming into this game on the back of a 37-ball 52 against the Sydney Thunder.
Hot picks
Tom Curran
He's starred with the bat and the ball for the Sixers this season, including helping his side clinch the Super Over in the Sydney derby last week. He has nine wickets and 89 runs in six games, with a high score of 43 not out.
Jonathan Wells
The middle-order batsman, who can strike the ball hard, is among the top-ten run-getters of this season with 187 runs in five games. He's been especially useful in the slog overs with his array of unorthodox shots.
Value picks
Daniel Hughes
The opening batsman did not have a great start to the season but has done well in the last three games. He hit a 31-ball 40 in the Sixers' previous game against the Melbourne Renegades to help them reach the second spot on the table.
Peter Siddle
The veteran quick has been impressive for the Strikers in all the four games he has played this season. He's picked up some crucial wickets, with his best figures - 3 for 24 - coming against the Melbourne Stars, where one of his victims was the in-form Glenn Maxwell.
