Sixers confirm squad for weekend in Melbourne
The Sydney Sixers have named a 13-player squad ahead of back-to-back clashes with the Stars and Scorchers in Melbourne this weekend.
Rain wreaked havoc on the Sixers match against the Renegades on Thursday afternoon, with the girls in magenta looking to bounce back from the weather-affected outing over the weekend.
The Sixers will face the Stars for a second time this summer following their 27-run victory over Melbourne in Mackay earlier in the tournament.
Alyssa Healy was a standout with bat in hand, smacking 43 (from 32) at the top of the order, while vice-captain Ashleigh Gardner was named Player of the Match for her all-round performance, producing 24 (from 24) and 2-19.

Maitlan Brown will sit out of the weekend’s matches with a back complaint and will seek further assessment on return to Sydney next week.
