The key highlights of our second BBL championship season:

  • On Saturday night, 8 of the 11 on-field won their first BBL title with the Sixers. Captain Moises Henriques, Steven Smith and Stephen O’Keefe were the three players who experienced their second title success after BBL|01.
  • Smith was captain for our first title.
  • Defeated the table-topping Melbourne Stars three times during the season, including the two Finals.
  • Won 9 of 14 matches, with one abandoned, to qualify second for the Finals.
  • Sixers leading run-scorer – Wicketkeeper-batsman Josh Philippe with 487 runs from 16 matches, including five half-centuries, the most important of which came in the Final (52 from 29).

  • Josh Philippe passed Brad Haddin as the Sixers all-time leading wicketkeeper, at Adelaide Oval against the Strikers, and has claimed 23 dismissals in his first two seasons, including 16 catches.
