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.
