Sydney Sixers announce squad for KFC Big Bash charity match against Hobart Hurricanes
The Sydney Sixers have named a squad for their clash against Hobart Hurricanes at the SCG on Wednesday.
The Sixers have named an unchanged squad following their impressive victory over Brisbane Heat on Sunday.
The fixture against the Hurricanes will also see the Sixers team up with the Sony Foundation, to champion the works of their 'You Can' program and the work they do with young cancer patients to provide support throughout their treatment.
The Sixer players will wear with pride, special jerseys honouring young cancer patients and survivors, with three powerful words of meaning emblazoned on their back (listed below).
13 young people with cancer have shared the three words that have helped them get through the toughest challenge of their life.
A number of fundraising activities will take place, prior, during and after the match on Wednesday 23 January.
