The 34th match of the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL) will see the cross-town rivals coming face to face as Sydney Thunder (THU) are all set to host Sydney Sixers (SIX) at the Sydney Showground Stadium on January 8.

Sitting third on the points table, the Thunder have a brilliant chance to topple Sixers and Perth Scorchers and move to the top of the table. Thunder have won their last four fixtures and have ten points to their name after eight games. Their batters are in terrific form at the moment and can eventually make a difference when these two sides meet on Sunday.

When it comes to the Sixers, they defeated Melbourne Stars in their previous match and have earned 11 points to their name after nine games. In the previous match, James Vince (91 off 59) played an absolute cracker of an innings and that changed the game in Sixer’s favour. When it comes to the bowlers, Sean Abbott picked up three wickets and Todd Murphy bowled really well but there’s room for improvement for others.
