Big weekend for Sixers abroad

28 May 2018

Sixers opening batsman Joe Denly starred for Kent in English County Cricket, while Carlos Brathwaite's Sunrisers Hyderabad took on Sam Billings' Chennai Super Kings in the final of the Indian Premier League.

Denly was dominant with both bat and ball as Kent defeated Glamorgan by four wickets in the Royal London One Day Cup.

The 32-year-old claimed 4/56 from 10 overs, before smacking 150 not out from 143 balls as Kent chased down Glamorgan's total of 274 with 11 balls to spare.

Meanwhile, Billings' Chennai Super Kings were crowned IPL Champions after defeating Brathwaite's Sunrisers Hyderabad by eight wickets in the final on Sunday night.

Despite playing an important role for Chennai throughout the tournament, Billings did not suit up in the final, while Sixers teammate Brathwaite scored 21 off 11 balls and finished with bowling figures of 1/27.
