The Sydney Sixers have named a 14-player squad ahead of tonight’s BBL|11 Challenger against the Adelaide Strikers at the SCG.

Experienced batter Daniel Hughes included in the squad. But will need to pass a fitness test by the club. Approximately an hour before the match to be any chance of playing against the Strikers. With members of the Central Local Replacement Player (LRP) pool on standby if he is ruled out.
