The Sydney Sixers BBL|05 campaign has come to an end with a 46-run defeat at the hands of the Sydney Thunder tonight at the SCG.

THE HOME GROUND: Read the match report on the Sixers’ website.

A stellar batting performance from skipper Nic Maddinson (70 from 40 deliveries) was not enough as the Sixers were all out for 156 in pursuit of the Thunder’s 5/202.

Maddinson broke the Sixers BBL record for the fastest half-century with his first fifty coming from just 22 deliveries, much to the delight of the sell-out crowd of 38,456.

Given a life when he was dropped on 17, Maddinson proceeded to send bowlers to all parts of the ground as he plundered five sixes and four boundaries.

With the help of Brad Haddin (17), Maddinson helped the Sixers to above the required run rate at the halfway mark of the innings, but the loss of the side’s final six wickets for just 21 runs sealed the magenta’s fate.

Coming in to the clash with a slim chance at a finals appearance, the Sixers were on the back foot in the early going as some superb 60-run partnership between Shane Watson (66 from 41) and Michael Hussey (41 from 29) laid the platform for the Thunder’s innings.

Some breathtaking hitting from West Indian import Andre Russell (46 from 20) catapulted his side to the imposing total of 5/202 as they looked to secure a finals berth.

Sean Abbott was the pick of the bowlers with 2/41 (4), coupled with the efforts of Nathan Lyon (1/33 off 4) and Ben Dwarshuis (1/42 off 4).
