CLT20: Sydney Sixers Vs Titans

Centurion, Oct 26: Sydney Sixers who have been the undisputed kings of Champions League T20 this year, look to extend their dominance against Nashua Titans in the second semifinal at Centurion on Friday.

The only team that has won all the matches played in the tournament and has looked strong in all the departments of the game despite Shane Watson's return to Australia.

Having registered easy wins over all the other opponents in Group B, Sydney Sixers found their last match against Mumbai Indians to be challenging.

Brad Haddin, Steven Smith, Michael Lumb, Moises Henriques have been in fine form and can easily dominate any attack.

While Titans enjoy home advantage, the South African side also depends a lot on its bowling attack which includes Alfonso Thomas, Ethy Mbhalati, Cornelius de Villiers and Roelof van der Merwe.

Titans do have a few weaknesses, as the team's middle order has not been quite consistent, which might pose a threat to the home side against confident Sixers.

The team's batting is another concern as Jacques Rudolph and Henry Davids have given good starts so far in the tournament, but Titans' middle-order appears to be weak.S

With Sydney Sixers playing Titans on Friday in the semifinal, the home side is wary about their opponents and would look forward to put up a good performance in order to qualify for the final.

The Australian T20 side on the other hand is also keen on making it to the final of CLT20 this year, as they have been the best team so far this season.


Sydney Sixers: Brad Haddin (Captain), Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Moises Henriques, Michael Lumb, Nathan McCullum, Nic Maddinson, Ian Moran, Peter Nevill, Steve O'Keefe, Ben Rohrer, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Dominic Thornely.

Titans: Martin van Jaarsveld (Captain), Farhaan Behardien, Henry Davids, AB de Villiers, Cornelius de Villiers, Paul Harris, Heino Kuhn (wicketkeeper), Eden Links, Ethy Mbhalati, Mangaliso Mosehle, Rowan Richards, Jacques Rudolph, Alfonso Thomas, Roelof van der Merwe, David Wiese.

Match Starts at 9pm IST.
