As the Sydney Sixers close in on the last home game of BBL|05, a finals spot remains a possibility, but it will take something special against the Sydney Thunder.

In the fifth season of the BBL, we thought we would wind back the clock and take a look at our five greatest moments against our crows-town rivals.

THE HOME GROUND: Check out the countdown on the Sixers’ website.

#5 – RECORD BREAKING BATTING

An imposing total of 180 was set by the Sixers in BBL|04 in what was at the time the side’s highest score with the bat.

Import Riki Wessels blasted 50 from 33 deliveries to help the magenta outfit to a comfortable 16-run win.

#4 – COOL HEAD HADDS HITS US TO VICTORY

After opener David Warner found himself back in the pavilion having not troubled the scorers, things were looking grim for the magenta in BBL|02.

Brad Haddin went on to blast 59 to propel the Sixers to a second-straight victory over the Thunder. Oh, he also had a little help from Maddo (39) and Steve Smith (41*).

#3 – A MADDO MASTERCLASS

After Nathan Lyon (3/14 off four overs) spun the Sixers in to a winning position in BBL|03, Nic Maddinson scored his second straight half-century against the Thunder.

On a deck where batsmen had struggled all night, Maddinson produced a classy 59* from 56 to guide the Sixers to victory in the final over.

#2 – STARC SKITTLES THE THUNDER

In the first ever Sydney Smash in BBL|01, it was Mitchell Starc that laid the platform for an era of magenta dominance with a devastating bowling performance.

Defending just 117 for victory, Starc picked up 3/17 inside three overs to have the opposition reeling at 4/29 before rain handed the Sixers a victory.

#1 – SILKY AND SOK SAVE THE DAY

It looked as though the winning streak would come to an end at the SCG in BBL|04, with the Sixers needing 23 runs off the final over for victory with Jordan Silk and Stephen O’Keefe at the crease.

A seemingly impossible task was made possible after Silk smashed two balls into the stands, before O’Keefe found himself on strike with eight runs required off the final two balls.

A thick edge over third man found the rope. Four needed off one. Bang! SOK sends it to the boundary as the 36,487-strong crowd erupts.
