Sydney Sixers Form

The Sydney Sixers are third on the table, four points off the Thunder in second place. They have won seven of their 11 matches but victory here will put them in a good position to overtake the Thunder.

In their last match the Sixers defended 150 runs with ease against Melbourne Renegades. Moises Henriques top scored with 49 runs while Jack Edwards contributed 40.

Ben Dwarshuis did most of the damage with the ball, taking 5-26 as the Renegades could only reach 105 runs.

Sydney Sixers Team News

The Sixers should remain unchanged as long as injuries and COVID don’t spoil the party.

Squad: Moises Henriques, Sean Abbott, Jackson Bird (Lawrence Neil-Smith), Daniel Christian, Tom Curran, Ben Dwarshuis, Jack Edwards, Mickey Edwards, Daniel Hughes, Chris Jordan (first five matches), Hayden Kerr, Nathan Lyon (Nick Winter), Ben Manenti, Stephen O'Keefe, Josh Philippe, Lloyd Pope, Jordan Silk, James Vince

Sydney Thunder Form

The Sydney Thunder are second on the BBL table and will want to hold onto that position going into the playoffs. They however faltered against the Hobart Hurricanes last time out.

Bowling first, the Thunder could only restrict the Hurricanes to 177 runs in 20 overs. It was a stiff total to chase, but they put in a good effort, falling just nine runs short.

Alex Hales smashed 38 off 17 balls while Jason Sangha scored 31 runs. Unfortunately the rest of the batsmen failed to get going as they only reached 168 runs.

Sydney Thunder Team News

The Sydney Thunder have no new injuries to worry about. An unchanged side is likely.
