The Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder will do battle in Sydney’s first local derby at ANZ Stadium on Sunday 8th January at 6pm, after the draw for the new KFC T20 Big Bash League was announced in Sydney last night.

The match promises to be a highlight of the calendar, and will pit the hitting ability of David Warner and Chris Gayle against the pace bowling of Brett Lee and Patrick Cummins, alongside many other potential match-ups on the night.

The launch saw uniforms unveiled, with the Sixers taking the field in Magenta, while the Thunder will don Electric Green.

The other major announcement of the night saw David Warner named as the captain of the Sydney Thunder, while Brad Haddin will lead the Sixers.

Warner, who has captained his Grade side Eastern Suburbs, gets the opportunity to lead a young and exciting side, while Haddin, will lead a group dominated by RTA SpeedBlitz Blues players at the SCG.
