THU vs SIX Key Players
James Vince is a proven performer in the BBL. He has given the Sixers a lot of knocks to cherish and is continuing to do so as he adds to the runs. His presence at the top-order is helping them a lot as Sydney Sixers found a pillar for their side.
With Sangha out, Chris Green has more responsibility on him. He is a pretty talented spinner who has not really got his dues up until now but with the spotlight likely to be on him more he could finally step up and out of the shadows.
