It’s been close to 3 weeks since Sydney Sixers lost a match in this tournament. Steven Smith’s inclusion has bolstered the batting line-up and he scored an incredible century against Adelaide Strikers. Now they are unbeaten in their last 5 matches including a recent win over Strikers by 59 runs. Todd Murphy and Ben Dwarshuis are adding new dimensions to their bowling attack along with regulars Sean Abbott and Steve O’Keefe. They are already qualified for the playoffs and aim to finish in the top 2 spots.
Sydney Thunder triumphed convincingly in the last outing against Melbourne Renegades by 8 wickets. The bowlers set the game up restricting the opposition to less than 150 run-mark and later it was a just formality for the batters as they finished the game with 9 balls to spare. Matthew Gilkes who was struggling to score runs lately came back to form and struck an unbeaten 74* runs. They just need a win from their remaining two matches to secure the playoff berth. With 6 wins and as many losses they positioned themselves in the 4th spot in the standings with 12 points. David Warner hasn’t been at his best however showing small improvements from match to match.
