History of Sydney Sixers
Participating in the opening Big Bash League 2011-12, the Sydney Sixers became the champions by their astonishing performance. They have ended at third position on the point table after the group stage matches and they have defeated the Hurricanes in the semifinal game at Bellerive Oval.
This facilitated a show-down against the Scorchers in the Big Bash final. They defeated the Scorchers on the final and named in the Big Bash history to win the first title on 28 January 2012 at the WACA Ground.
After the successful win of the Big Bash final, the Sixers qualified for the first time in the CLT20 tournament. The CLT20 contest was held in October 2012 in South Africa.
However, the Sixers made another history after winning the Champions Leagues Twenty20 tournament on their first participation. They were the top of their group and made the finals of the tournament. The Sixers went has defeated the Nashua Titans in the semifinal and the Highveld Lions in the CLT20 final to be crowned champions.
The Sydney Sixers was formed when the judgment was made to move away as of state representative franchise based teams for the domestic T20 competition. It is supposed that the move was to line up its structure with that of South Africa and India, where their domestic teams are based on cities. That was the most important reason for the inaugural Champions League Twenty20 contest, where founding members were those three nations.
The original decision was that there would be two teams from Melbourne, two teams from Sydney and one from each other capital city to create an eight team contest. The names Sixers were decided upon by Cricket NSW (and Thunder for cross-city rivals). Other names measured for the two teams were Rocks and Edge.
