Josh Philippe

Josh Philippe, the wicketkeeper-batsman for the Sydney Sixers, has built an impressive track record in the past BBL seasons. Known for his attacking style of play, Philippe has consistently performed well in the tournament. Although he faced a setback in the first match against the Melbourne Renegades, he will be eager to bounce back to form and make a big impact in this game.


Steve O’Keefe

Steve O’Keefe, the left-arm orthodox spinner for the Sydney Sixers, is one of the top spinners in Australian white-ball cricket. Known for his ability to bowl effectively across different phases of the game, O’Keefe poses a significant challenge to opposition batters. His clever use of the crease and change of pace often leaves batters struggling to read his deliveries. It is expected that O’Keefe will maintain his high-level performance in the upcoming season.
