The Sydney Sixers have named an unchanged 13-player line-up ahead of their penultimate regular season match, up against crosstown rivals, the Sydney Thunder.

The Sixers will play host to their fellow Sydneysiders at North Sydney Oval on Friday night, as they look to lock away their place in the Weber WBBL|08 Final.

Requiring just one more regular season victory in order to secure the rights to host next Saturday’s decider, the Sixers will be more determined than ever to walk away with the two points.

One of the hottest rivalries in the WBBL, the Sydney Smash remains one of the most highly anticipated matches of the summer for fans and players alike.

Friday night’s clash will also see Australian cricket great and Thunder captain, Rachael Haynes face off against her old rivals for the final time.

Tickets to Weber WBBL|08 and KFC BBL|12 are on sale NOW via Ticketek.

The Sixers kicked off their Sydney homecoming with a bang on Wednesday night, knocking over the second-placed Brisbane Heat in an all-time thriller.

Erin Burns (51*) and Sophie Ecclestone (47*) put on a show for fans at North Sydney Oval, producing a stunning 92-run partnership to guide their side to victory, marking the Sixers first home match in over two years.

Young gun Kate Peterson starred with ball in hand, collecting 4-17 from her four overs, equaling the third-best bowling figures by a Sydney Sixer in the WBBL.

First ball of Friday night's Smash is scheduled for 7.05pm (AEDT) at North Sydney Oval and will be broadcast live on Seven, Fox Cricket, Kayo Sport and ABC Radio.
