Delray Rawlins and his teammates would have received a boost for their Sixers Conference Final against Sutherland.
Sutherland blasted its way into the Sixers Conference Final courtesy of an amazing performance by former Australian all-rounder Shane Watson.
Watson (114 not out) annihilated the Mosman attack last Sunday sending the ball beyond the boundary an incredible 16 times. His century came from just 53 balls.
In a blow to its prospects, Sutherland will be without Watson for the final, but will have the services of Blues’ rookie leg spinner Daniel Fallins, and member of the Australian under 19 World Cup squad, Austin Waugh.
In the absence of Watson, the batting of Jamie Brown also takes on extra importance. He will be looking to improve even further on his record of 201 runs at 50.25 and help his team to the crown.
The road to the Sixers Conference Final was far more nerve racking for Sydney, who had to endure the tension and unpredictability of the Super Over.
After Sydney tied the scores, the Tigers’ Matthew Pasternatsky added to his 45 runs during the regulation 20 overs, with 12 runs in the Super Over, to get his team over the line.
The bowling of Matthew Parkinson will be a prime weapon for Sydney given his record of 10 wickets at 15.40 for the Kingsgrove Sports T20 Cup.
The Kingsgrove Sports T20 Cup finals day at the Sydney Cricket Ground will be streamed live on Sunday through the Cricket NSW website and Facebook page.
