Sixers Overseas: Dane Van Niekerk & Marizanne Kapp & Sara McGlashan

One to Watch - Dane Van Niekerk. The Sixers overseas bowler has been in fantastic form this season. She is top of the wicket taking charts with 16. This will be her last match for the Sixers and she will be looking to finish her season on a high before going on international duties.

Thunder are top of the ladder with 6 wins from 8 games, with the Sixers hot on their heels, second in the ladder with 5 wins from 8. One of the two games the Thunder have lost this season was to the Sixers on opening weekend. Therefore the Thunder will be looking for revenge when the sides meet at the SCG on Saturday. 

Sixers have both the top wicket taker and the leading run scorer in WBBL|03 in Van Niekerk & Perry. Therefore they will provide a tough test for the Thunder. This match will be Harmanpreet Kaur's final match for the Thunder before she heads back to India on international duties. It will also be the final game for Kapp & Van Niekerk as they will both be heading back for international duties.
