 SIX vs THU Toss Prediction 

With rain expected to intervene, the team that wins the toss in this match will probably want to bowl first and take advantage of the DLS method later on.

 SIX vs THU Weather Report 

Rain is expected to interrupt the proceedings and so there is a possibility of a shortened game. However, it may not be so heavy as to cause a washout. Temperatures have been forecast to be around 20 degrees Celsius during the match.

 SIX vs THU Pitch Condition 

Last week's game at this ground between Sydney Thunder and Hobart Hurricanes was a high-scoring one with both the teams scoring over 160. This time, however, the pitch might not favor the batsmen that much and conditions could be conducive to pace bowling.

Team NEWS:

 SIX Team News 

Sydney Sixers have made a couple of changes in their squad for this upcoming encounter against their cross-town rivals. Fast bowler Henry Thornton and spinner Ben Manenti, who replaced Lloyd Pope in the rained-out match against Hobart Hurricanes last time, have been dropped while pacer Mickey Edwards and test specialist Nathan Lyon have been added as the respective replacements. Lyon seems to have recovered from the thumb injury he sustained during the SCG test match against New Zealand. The off-spinner is due to undergo a fitness assessment but news is that he looks set to play his first BBL 09 game on Saturday night.

 THU Team News 
Sydney Thunder are showing faith in their current set of players as they have named an unchanged 13-man squad for Saturday's derby clash. The club had made three changes to their line-up in their 12-run loss to Melbourne Renegades last time out, leaving out Matthew Gilkes, Arjun Nair and Chris Tremain to make room for Jay Lenton, Nathan McAndrew and Jonathan Cook. All-rounder Daniel Sams was sent ahead of Alex Ross but the move did not work and it remains to be seen whether Sams will be pushed back into the middle order.

 Predicted Lineups (Playing11): 

 Sydney Sixers 

Josh Philippe (wk), Daniel Hughes, James Vince, Moises Henriques (c), Jordan Silk, Tom Curran, Justin Avendano, Nathan Lyon, Ben Dwarshuis, Jackson Bird, Steve O'Keefe.

 Sydney Thunder 

Usman Khawaja, Alex Hales, Callum Ferguson (c), Daniel Sams, Alex Ross, Chris Morris, Jay Lenton (wk), Nathan McAndrew, Jonathan Cook, Brendan Doggett, Liam Bowe.

 Key Players: 

 SIX Key Players: 

J Philippe:  
He has looked the most impressive of all the batsmen in the side. The opener has scored 277 runs at an average of 34.62 and has cracked unbeaten two fifties - 81 against Perth Scorchers and 83 against Adelaide Strikers.

Tom Curran: 
The England quick is one of the top five bowlers this Big Bash season with 14 wickets in 10 matches. Curran was impressive in the reverse encounter with figures of 2-23 and he recently took a match-winning four-wicket haul against Adelaide Strikers.

Ben Dwarshuis: 
The left-arm fast bowler has taken 10 wickets in as many matches at an acceptable economy of 7.93 and he will be expected to pick wickets in the powerplay. Dwarshuis, through his unbeaten knock of 42 from 17 balls against Melbourne Stars, has shown   that he can also be handy with the bat lower down the order.

 THU Key Players: 

C Ferguson: 
He is the only one in this team to be among the top ten batsmen this BBL. The captain is averaging 37.75 and has three half-centuries to his name. Ferguson had fired 52 in last month's reverse encounter at the SCG.

Alex Hales: 
The English opener has been the Thunder's next-best batsman with 254 runs in 10 matches. Hales has struck a couple of fifties this season, the most recent one coming in last week's four-wicket win against Hobart Hurricanes at this very ground.

Daniel Sams: 
He is the tournament's best bowler at the moment having picked 17 wickets in 10 matches at an economy of 8.03. The left-arm quick had notched up 3-25 at this ground earlier in the month against Melbourne Stars and he will look to repeat his heroics from that game.

 Team Forms: 


With six wins, three losses and one washout, Sydney Sixers find themselves comfortably positioned at the second spot in the league standings. Their previous game against Hobart Hurricanes at home lasted only 6.4 overs before rain played spoilsport and forced the teams to split points between them. Prior to that, the Sixers faced a 44-run loss at the hands of Melbourne Stars at the MCG which brought an end to their five-match winning streak.


Sydney Thunder are currently lying in the sixth place on the BBL 09 points table with four wins, five losses and a no-result from ten league matches. They have been struggling for a while now, suffering four defeats on the last five occasions. The Thunder last played a couple of days ago against Melbourne Renegades at Canberra where they lost the rain-affected encounter by 12 runs (DLS method). They have been a bit underwhelming with the ball in their last two matches, conceding over 160 each time.

SYDNEY SIXERS: Josh Philippe(w), Daniel Hughes, James Vince, Moises Henriques(c), Jordan Silk, Tom Curran, Justin Avendano, Ben Dwarshuis, Jackson Bird, Steve OKeefe, Nathan Lyon, Mickey Edwards, Lloyd Pope.

SYDNEY THUNDER: Usman Khawaja, Alex Hales, Callum Ferguson(c), Daniel Sams, Alex Ross, Jay Lenton(w), Nathan McAndrew, Jonathan Cook, Brendan Doggett, Liam Bowe, Chris Morris, Arjun Nair, Gurinder Sandhu.

All the best
