The win at Metricon Stadium on the Gold Coast put the Sixers on top of the table. They will meet the Renegades at the same venue.
Last time the Sixers met the Renegades they defeated the Melbourne side by a record 145 runs in Hobart highlighted by Josh Philippe’s 95.
The Renegades are looking to break a three-match losing streak. The Sixers meanwhile will seek to extend their winning run to four.
v. Melbourne Renegades
13 matches – 8 wins, 5 losses.
“I think it’s definitely a danger game,” said Hughes who will continue as captain in the absence of regular skipper Moises Henriques whilst he's on Test duty.
“They’ve got Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh and I think those two aren’t far away from a big score.
“They’ll be looking to bounce back but we’re full of confidence at the moment and we’re pretty confident we can get the job done.”
The Sixers have named an 18-player squad for tomorrow night. The squad will be trimmed to 13 players and the final 11 announced at the bat flip.
Of this squad, only Nick Bertus and Tom Rogers are yet to make their Sixers debut, while Hayden Kerr and former Test quick Jackson Bird have been named for the first time this season after recovering from injury.
