Sydney Sixers innings: Brief Summary

The Sydney Sixers lost a couple of quick wickets and Munaf derailed them by picking two in one over early in the innings. While Lumb got them off to a flyer with 28 from 22 balls, it was Nic Maddinson's entertaining cameo (27 from 13 balls) that produced some quick runs. With their bowling attack, 136 is a very defendable score for the Sixers, but if there’s one team which has players to combat such an attack, it has to be Mumbai Indians. We are all set for a thrilling contest!

TOSS: Brad Haddin has won the toss and Sydney Sixers have decided to bat first.

The mighty Mumbai Indians who have been knocked out of the Champions League Twenty20 will lock horns with the formidable Sydney Sixers in their last match of Champions League Twenty20.

The Sixers have already reached the semis and they would not take their opponents lightly after their super performance in their previous game against the Chennai Super Kings. Apart from Tendulkar, everybody has contributed with the bat and the Little Master would want to make some significant contribution in their last match of the Champions League T20.

The Sydney Sixers have some excellent bowlers like Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. Mumbai would want Lasith Malinga, who took a 5-for in his last match to continue in the same rhythm.
