Brad Haddin has been left to lament what could have been in BBL|05 after a tough season-ending loss tonight against the Sydney Thunder.

THE HOME GROUND: See what Brad Haddin had to say on the Sixers’ website.

While the 46-run defeat does not look very appealing on the scorecard, Haddin acknowledged that the derby was a “great game to watch”.

“Thunder batted outstanding – [Shane] Watson, [Michael] Hussey, and [Andre] Russell’s power hitting at the back end of the game was great entertainment,” said the Sixers wicketkeeper.

Entering the game with a glimmer of hope for a finals appearance, the home side were forced to go on the attack throughout the entire clash in search of a semi-final berth.

“From our point of it, we had to chase from reduced overs to have any chance in the competition, so it was good to watch but the Thunder were too good tonight.

“I thought when Maddo [Nic Maddinson] and I were in we were a slim chance, but I thought once the partnership there was broken, it was going to be a lot to the lower order to do it.

“We had to keep trying, that was the nature of this game. We had to do something totally out of the box to give ourselves a chance.”

INSIDE BALL: Read the match report to find out how it all played out.

A raft of injuries rocked the Sixers BBL|05 campaign, leading Haddin to believe that work had to be done on bolstering the side’s depth ahead of next summer.

“All in all, it’s been a pretty disappointing season from us, but we’ve got to pick ourselves up and make sure we’re alright for next year.”

“We had a few injuries, so you’ve got to make sure you can cover injuries in this competition.”

A sell-out crowd of 38,456 packed out the SCG to watch the Sydney Smash, and Haddin says that the crowd support has been the highlight of the competition this season.

“The crowds have been amazing. We were lucky enough tonight to play in front of 38,000. We had a New Year’s Eve game in front of nearly fifty [thousand] in Adelaide. The support we’ve received across the whole country has been amazing.”
