Both big-hitting openers, Australian Daniel Hughes and Surrey’s English international Jason Roy, were the top scorers for the Aussie side with 47 and 42 runs respectively. The Bangladesh bowlers, playing under the BCB XI name, particularly felt the power hitting during the first powerplay, as the Sixers scored 64 runs without losing a single wicket. However, the Sixers lost wickets at regular interval after the departure of the openers. Jordan Silk in lower-order made 45 runs. Soumya was at the peak of the bowlers’ list, taking three wickets, while Taskin Ahmed and Taijul Islam both bagged two wickets each. The Tigers eventually got the 84-run target in eight overs, under the Duckworth-Lewis method, after play was affected by rain at the North Sydney Oval. In reply, The Tigers also started their innings with blistering stroke-making from openers Soumya Sarker, Imrul Kayes and No 3 Sabbir Rahman. Wickets fell quickly too.
