Sydney Sixers goes second on BBL table on back of a terrific James Vince-Jordan Silk partnership, and a super all-round team bowling effort, as the Brisbane Heat’s struggles continued
That’s a one-sided demolition. Losing ten wickets in 20 overs paints a bleak picture more often than not and there is no doubt that it has tonight. Sixers move straight to second place and have overturned their negative run rate into a positive one.
The win was set up by Vince and Silk’s power hitting, before the bowlers teamed up to chip away relentlessly as the Heat crumbled under the demand of the situation.
Lalor’s 5 for 26 goes in vain. Not often do you see that, but it’s what happens when the team doesn’t pull its weight together. Heat’s position remains unchanged. Their run rate would have taken a huge hit after this defeat, but it remains positive for now.
Stephen Jones: “The 2 English lads outstanding tonight, James vince 75 from 46 and Tom Curran 3 for 16 , tough choice between the 2 for man of the match. “
