How to watch Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Sixers BBL live and free
The impressive Sydney Sixers continue their title defence against the inconsistent Brisbane Heat. This is how you can watch.
Coached by the experienced Greg Shipperd, the Sydney Sixers have found a consistent winning formula. After winning the franchise's second title last season, Sydney are on track for another and boast a 4-1 win-loss record.
They have, however, lost the services of West Indies captain Jason Holder. The outstanding all-rounder's 3 game stint ended in the win over the Melbourne Renegades, scoring 33 not out to guide the Sixers home.
Brisbane Heat, meanwhile, are coached by the former Australian mentor Darren Lehmann. But their inconsistent form has continued under 'Boof.' They need Afghanistan spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman to be a consistent match-winner for them.
