Watch Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder live and free
The BBL's Sydney derby of Sixers vs Thunder isn't on free-to-air, but here's how you can watch for free.
Who doesn't love an intercity rivalry? And that's exactly what's on offer to fans when the two Sydney teams will go up against each other. In order to watch Sixers vs Thunder, fans are going to need a subscription service.
That's right, this fixture is one of the 16 BBL games that Channel 7 lacks. It definitely seems like a bit of a mistake to have this one missing from the Big Bash schedule, given it's a big rivalry game and in prime time on Saturday night.
When is the Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder game?
The rivalry game will take place at the SCG on Saturday 28 December at 7:10pm (AEDT).

History of Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder
It's the magenta men who hold the better record with 10 wins from 15 games. Though in recent times, the Thunder have improved, taking out five of the last eight matches.
Who will win Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder?
The Thunder are currently undefeated in BBL|09. They got off to a great start winning their first two before heavy smoke in Canberra, saw their third match abandoned. Maybe rust will play a factor for the Thunder, who haven't played for a week?
The Sixers, on the other hand, have won two and lost two. Interestingly, the Sixers have only defeated the Scorchers so far. One of their losses was also inflicted solely by Brisbane's Chris Lynn who hit 99 from 35 deliveries.
At the time of writing, Sixers paceman Sean Abbott currently leads the BBL in dismissals taking 9 wickets. I feel that the Sixers may have just started to find their groove the other night. Given that the Thunder are coming off a spell too, I think the Sixers scrape by in the derby by a tight margin.
