Sydney Sixers will take on Brisbane Heat on the first day of the new year at Carrara Oval, Queensland. Both the team will look to start the year by winning the match.
Brisbane Heats being the bottom of the table have lost both the matches they played this season. The batting line-up of the team looks strong on paper but have not shown the same in the field in the previous matches. A lot will depend on Chris Lynn, Brendon McCullum and Joe Burns for batting performance. Team bowling is quite consistent with the likes of Mujeeb and Pattinson.
Alex Ross and James Pattinson has been added in 13 men squad for Matthew Kuhnemann and Mark Steketee.
Whereas, Sydney Sixers at 5th position in the points table with two matches in four matches. Team will be confident after the last clash, where they won the match by 33 runs against the Renegades. But the top order of the hasn’t delivered yet. Jordan Silk is delivery in every match for the team. The bowling looks very strong with the consistent performance from Steve O’Keefe, Sean Abbott, Tom Curran and newbie Ben Manenti.
Greg West replacing Lloyd Pope in the 13 man squad.
