Sydney Sixers will be looking to follow up on two impressive away wins as they return to the SCG on Friday night to host Perth Scorchers. The sides currently sit equal second on the Big Bash ladder, and both look destined to appear in the finals this campaign.
The Sixers welcome back their Ashes heroes Steve Smith and Nathan Lyon from international duty, along with Englishman Chris Tremlett who is now available for the rest of the tournament. Lyon in particular will want to impress for the Sixers as he looks to get back into the Australian side in the shorter formats.
Perth somehow defended a modest total in Hobart to steal a victory over the Hurricanes in their last game, thanks in no small part to Nathan Coulter-Nile producing incredible bowling figures at the death. He is not available for this game as he is now on international duty, along with fast bowler Shaun Marsh.
Friday night at the SCG has been nominated as a ‘Girls Night Out’, with ladies encouraged to dress up for the occasion to be in with a chance of winning $40,000 worth of Westfield Bondi Junction gift cards. Look out for pamper stations, photo booths and other activities around the SCG precinct.
Friday 10th January, Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) Moore Park 19:40
