THE TEAM NEWS
- Sydney Sixers avoided a third straight loss in the Big Bash League as they got the better of Melbourne Renegades in their most recent contest but this will be a much tougher task as they take on local rivals Sydney Thunder.

they showed what they can do to overcome Melbourne Renegades in
impressive fashion while Sydney Thunder have lost just one of their last
seven games. That came in their most recent contest against Hobart
Hurricanes but they can put their middle-order batting collapse behind
them and make an immediate return to winning ways by overcoming their
