Match 40, KFC T20 Big Bash League 2018/2019, 23 Jan 2019
Sydney Sixers won by 9 wickets
BALL BY BALL
A clinical victory for the Sydney Sixers. All eyes tonight were on Wade and Short but it was a nice surprise for the home crowd to watch Philippe and Vince put on a show. A huge 167 run partnership got the Sixers home by nine wickets with 17 deliveries left. They were able to dominate from ball one and latched onto anything loose. With the spinners bowling quicker and quicker that only played into their hands and the ball continued to be sent to the rope on regular occasion. After handing Hobart their second loss Sydney move up to second in the table on 12 points.
