Good start for the Lions, 14 runs from the first over.Toss:
Sydney Sixers have won the toss and Brad Haddin has decided to bowl first.
Sydney Sixers will be high on confidence after they reduced bundled out Yorkshire for just 96 runs in the previous match. They have a pace attack that can bother the best of the batsmen in the world. Mitchell Starc
has troubled all the batsmen with his pace and swing so far in the series.
On the other hand, The Lions might not have big names to boast about but they have clicked as a unit and Aaron Phangiso
is the man who has got them major breakthroughs with his accurate line and length. Phangiso has also won two consecutive Man of the Match awards.
