The Big Bash has already been operating for nine seasons, but during the last two, it has become more of a business than just a cricket competition. Many young stars have indeed been discovered for the shorter forms, and it has provided non-contracted state players with a respectable wage. I’ll be compiling the greatest BBL XI of two teams in each of these four articles.
The recent BBL today match news states that only two foreign players will be included in each XI.
All-time Sydney Sixers XI
- Michael Lumb has 4972 runs, a 24.01 average, 100 T20I runs, a 21.23 average, and three fifty-pluses in his T20 stats. BBL statistics: 1212 runs, a 26.93 average, and six fifty-strikes The Sydney Sixers’ leading batsman from England was engaged from the start. Lumb offered the Sixers quick starts with their aggressive hitting as the opening batter, and it often paid off. He was a crucial member of the Sixers and their fourth-highest run scorer. Lumb would have played additional games again for men in magenta had it not been for an ankle problem that forced him to retire in 2017.
- Daniel Hughes’s T20/BBL numbers include 1458 runs, a 28.58 average, and eight fifty-plus scores. Despite having played both for Sydney sides, Hughes has had far greater success with the Sixers. Hughes, who started the batting for the Sixers the majority of the time, would strive to bat 20 innings while others were going to take greater chances. He has been a fantastic performer for the Sixers, powerful off the wicket.
- Nic Maddinson’s 2059 run, 20.59 average, and eight fifty-pluses in 20-over statistics 45 run, 11.25 avg in 20-over matches BBL statistics: 1607 runs, a 20.87 average, and eight fifty-strikes While playing with the Sixers, Maddinson was a threatening batter, but he has performed poorly for the Melbourne Stars. The Nowra left-hander terrified the opposing bowlers by not being scared to leap over the top. The Sixers’ second-highest run-scorer, Maddinson, was crucial to their successful seasons.
- Steve Smith has the following T20 stats: 4014 runs, 31.6 avg, 100 T20I runs, 681 runs, 29.6 avg, four fifties, and 714 runs, 32.45 avg, five fifties in the BBL. Jordan Silk has performed well for the Sixer, while Smith is the clear winner in my book. Smith has had few chances for the Sixers since he has spent the last six years competing for Australia in all forms, but he hasn’t exactly struggled. The bowlers are frightened only by his reputation. Smith will continue to play a crucial role for the Sixers going forward after leading them to their first championship in BBL01.
- Captain Moises Henriques has 159 runs in T20I while also amassing 3775 runs in T20, a 26.58 average, and 18 fifties. 1831 runs, a 27.32 average, and two fifty-sevens in the BBL statistics. It’s a little difficult to exclude the Sixers’ greatest run scorer from the list. Henriques, a superb spinner, has played several innings again for the Sixers that have won games. In his T20 experience so far, his capacity to bat by the match scenario has stood out. He is the team’s captain because of what he has accomplished at times with little help.
- Josh Philippe’s T20/BBL statistics include 798 runs, a 33.25 average, seven fifty-plus runs, 16 catches, and seven stumpings. Philippe is just 22 years old, so it’s unsettling to ponder what he’s capable of. Philippe had made a significant impact on the Sixers throughout the second season he has been there, although he was tossing up either him or Brad Haddin. He has the potential to develop into an effective white-ball player in Australia because of his ability to hit shots across the field. Given the weakness in the middle overs, Philippe has been selected as the finalist in the Sixers’ all-time XI.
- Tom Curran’s T20 statistics are as follows: 873 runs, 18.57 avg, two fifty-plus scores, 149 wickets, 23.46 average, and 8.67 economies. T20I statistics: 38 runs at 12.66 each, 21 wickets at 25.57 apiece, and 9.1 economy BBL statistics include 318 runs, a 24.46 average, a fifty, 42 wickets, a 19.61 average, and an 8.32 economy rate.
For the Sixers, Curran has excelled as a world-class all-around player. Over his two years in the BBL, his late-order hittings have helped them win a lot of games. But his main talent is bowling, & he hasn’t disappointed. Curran is an expert at winning death overs thanks to his back-of-the-hand slower ball, slower bouncer, and a yorker. For the next two seasons, he has a contract with the Sixers. Curran should play his entire BBL career with the Sixers and be true to the men in magenta, in my opinion.
- Steve O’Keefe’s T20 numbers include 68 wickets, a 26.27 average, and a 6.79 economy rate. Six wickets, a 24.83 average, and a 7.84 economy are the T20I figures. 50 wickets, 27.1 average, and 6.61 economies are BBL figures. In the BBL, O’Keefe is a remarkably underappreciated spinner. How many Australian spinners can put pressure on the opposition while keeping the score down with a skippy new ball? While his spin opponents would take the breakthroughs, O’Keefe seldom twisted the ball much but his precision always caused pressure. Even though O’Keefe has given up playing first-class cricket, he still has a lot of cricket left to provide the Sixers.
- Mitchell Starc
140 wickets, 17.5 average, and 7.15 economy are the T20 numbers. 43 wickets, an 18.65 average, and a 6.91 economy rate in T20Is 34 wickets, 13.82 average, and 7.64 economies in the BBL
Although it was difficult to choose between Starc and Ben Dwarshuis, Starc had a far higher bowling average. One of the hardest bowlers to hit in the last few overs, even can swing with the new ball and takes wickets.
- Sean Abbott : 107 wickets, a 21.38 average, and an 8.42 economy rate for Sean Abbott in 20-over games. Three wickets, a 20.33 average, and a 6.1 economy are the T20I figures. BBL statistics: 99 wickets, 21.21 average, and 8.47 economy. He has taken more wickets than any other player in Sixers’ career and second-most within Big Bash. No additional explanation is necessary, I believe.
- Nathan Lyon : 54 wickets, 20.51 average, and 7.21 economy in T20 for Nathan Lyon 1 wicket, 48 average, and 9.6 economies in T20Is. 41 wickets, 19.68 average, and 6.97 economies are BBL stats. With his wickets in middle overs, The GOAT has indeed been fantastic for the Sixers. Lyon has shown that classic off-spinners can still contribute if they are precise and persistent in putting pressure, even though wrist spinners now predominate in white-ball cricket.
