Roar – It’s a replay of the BBL6 Grand Final when the Sydney Sixers host the defending champions, the Perth Scorchers at the SCG.


  • The Scorchers smashed the Sixers by nine wickets at the WACA in the big dance last year, that being the third time the Sixers and Scorchers have clashed in the Grand Final.
  • Big batting battle – Jason Roy vs Hilton Cartwright I have gone for Jason Roy because, for a big name, he hasn’t offered the Sixers a lot since joining them as their overseas player at the beginning of last season.
  • Hilton Cartwright will be leaned upon heavily for the Scorchers this year, with senior batsmen Shaun Marsh and Mitchell Marsh unavailable.
  • Big bowling battle – Daniel Sams vs Mitchell Johnson As a fellow left-arm quick Daniel Sams would have looked up to Mitchell Johnson as a young kid, and now he gets the chance to go head-to-head with him at a packed SCG.
