Big Bash League: Sixers quicks blow away Renegades

The Sydney Sixers snatched victory from the jaws of defeat with their pace attack dismissing the Melbourne Renegades for just 105 runs in Geelong on Tuesday night.

The Sixers are priced at 10/3 to win BBL11 and pull off an historic three-peat and if they are to manage it then the pace bowlers will have a huge role to play.

Below-par score

The Sixers managed just 150 runs from their 20 overs which looked to be a very reachable target for the Renegades, but they ended up falling well short.

That was down to the performance of fast bowlers Ben Dwarshuis, Jackson Bird, Sean Abbott and Hayden Kerr who took nine wickets between them.

"Obviously we've got a great captain (Moises Henriques) and he marshals his troops really well and he sort of reads the game really nicely and knows each of his bowlers really well," Dwarshuis told Channel Seven.

"The wicket was a little bit low and a little bit slow towards the end there, mainly just trying to hit the wicket hard and a couple of balls stayed low. (I) made that work a little bit but credit to our bowlers up the top, they set the tone early."

Challenging times

It has been a tough season for everyone involved in BBL11 and as the business end of the campaign also approaches Dwarshuis says team spirit is crucial.

"Games close together, a lot of travel, a bit of uncertainty around what the hub is going to look like and stuff like that, it's just about finding someone close in the team, one of your mates and having a chat," he added.

"Once you get out on the field, just enjoy it. Every time you step onto the field, it's good fun."
