So we finally got the ball rolling at the SCG on Saturday night and what a fantastic night it was! I can tell you that all the players had a fantastic time out on the field. I hope everyone that came along had a great time too and that we put on a bit of a show for you!
Although I’ve only been a part of the Sixers for a short time, it’s fantastic to be around such a great group of guys and a team that really wants to play for each other. There’s no great secret as to why the Sixers have now won 12 matches in a row – there is a great team spirit and it’s obviously converted into some great results over the last year.
Unfortunately I didn’t get the runs I would have liked on Saturday, but it was great to see Hads, Maddo and Smithy hitting the ball all around the park and putting on a show for the crowd. The boys put in a great effort with the ball and in the field to keep the Thunder to 143 and give us a good chance of chasing down the runs.
I thought our Queensland recruit Luke Feldman played extremely well – taking two wickets and finishing with the figures of 2/19 - pretty outstanding in T20! Of course Starcy didn’t let us down either and it was great to see him win his little battle with Usman Khawaja early in the match.
Let’s keep it going on Sunday night at the SCG against the Scorchers! I’ll be away with the Australian Test Team but I will be cheering and I hope all of you will be too!
PS: How good are the light-up stumps!
