Placed third on the points table, Sydney Sixers would do their utmost to practice hard before their semifinal match against Perth Scorchers on February 5, 2014.
However, for Sydney Thunders, the last match of the season is nothing less than a battle of pride. A win in this match would help them finish the third season of Big Bash League with sixth position.
According to recent team reports, Sean Annott and Trent Copeland would provide the required solidity to Sydney Sixers, who would replace Chris Tremlett and Jordan Silk.
