BBL: Sydney Sixers v Sydney Thunder

One of the most anticipated sporting events all summer is always the local derby clash between the Sydney Sixers and the Sydney Thunder.

Forget about their standing on the ladder and expect all guns blazing as these two teams produce their best efforts against their great rivals.

The teams are fully aware of the interest that bragging rights brings when east meets west and the city's sport lovers separate for a night of electric cricketing theatre.

Former Australian stalwart Shane Watson has enjoyed a resurgence in the T20 sphere and will lead the way for the Thunder as the Sixers' bowlers led by Sean Abbott and Nathan Lyon step forward for the challenge.

The harbour city will be buzzing for this summer Saturday night Big Bash League stunner and the crowd is expected to be heaving.

Pre-purchase tickets through Ticketek, leave the car at home and take public transport before making your way to the SCG Trust precinct and the wonderful Sydney Cricket Ground.
