Lions vs Sydney Sixers, Champions League T20 Final Odds, Prediction, and Pick
Before the tournament started, South Africa's domestic side, Highveld Lions were being considered serious underdogs, but they have made their way to the finals and were clinical in their approach. They'll now meet Australian giants, Sydney Sixers, who have been one of the better sides of this Champions League T20 on Oct 28, 2012 at Johannesburg. Lions qualified for finals after beating Delhi Daredevils in a low scoring encounter and Sixers just got past Titans in a thrilling game.

Sydney Sixers have been unbeaten in this tournament and have beaten Lions as well. Without Watson, they seem to be doing just enough to get past the line. Their bowling attack is comprised of arguably world's best young fast bowlers. With the experience of Haddin and Lumb at the top of the order combined with skills and abilities of Smith and Henriques in the middle order, they have a decent batting order as well. With excellent blend of youth and experienced players in Sixer's side, Lions would have to play well to get past them.
Despite being called as underdogs before the start of the tournament, Lions have impressed one and all with their teamwork and determination. Neil McKenzie's experience has been handy and has played two match winning knocks so far. Phangiso has been their trump card along with sharp pace men Morris. Experience of Nannes and Tanvir adds to their good looking bowling attack. One of their major concerns is their opening pair and batting which they need to improve on. Overall, they can be a tough team to play against, especially at their home ground.

Can Highveld Lions continue their winning run for one more match? Considering their form and team, it's highly possible. Lions have played flawlessly and lost only one game in this series. They've beaten three out of four star-studded IPL sides. Furthermore, they have the home advantage and they have more experience of playing at Johannesburg than any other team in the world. I'd place my money on Highveld Lions.
» Man of the Match Prediction
It's been an even contest of batting and bowling so far in this tournament. Ghulam Bodi and Neil McKentops are two of top five batsmen this season, but their trump card has been young spinner Aaron Phangiso. He has taken ten wickets at an economy rate of 4.45 which is absolutely phenomenal. He has been consistent and is my choice for Man of the Match award.
