In a rematch of last season’s Final, which the Sixers won by 19 runs, the men in magenta will be seeking their third successive win of BBL|10 and fourth straight against the Stars.

“Christmas Day will be nice and relaxing then we’re straight into it on Saturday. For the boys that were here last year it’s a Finals re-match and they’re pumped and ready to go,” Sixers seamer Gurinder Sandhu said.

The Sixers, Stars, Melbourne Renegades, Adelaide Strikers and Hobart Hurricanes boarded a charter flight from Hobart to Brisbane on Monday.

While in Queensland, the Sixers will play three of their four matches at Gold Coast’s Metricon Stadium. The other, against the Brisbane Heat, is set to take place on January 2 at the Gabba.

The Sixers currently sit outright fourth on the BBL|10 table leading into Saturday.

Daniel Hughes continues as captain in the absence of regular skipper Moises Henriques who is part of the Australian Test squad playing India.

Nick Bertus and Tom Rogers are both in line to make their Sixers debut if named in the starting 11.

Former Test quick Jackson Bird is nearing a return from a calf injury suffered whilst playing for Australia A earlier this month, and English international Jake Ball will join the club in the coming days and be available for selection ahead of the Sixers' game against the Melbourne Renegades on December 29.
