Highveld Lions vs Sydney Sixers in final clash
Johannesburg: Invincible so far in the competition, Sydney Sixers are firm favourites for the title but South Africa’s enterprising Highveld Lions would look to upset the Australian powerhouse’s applecart when the two sides clash in the Champions League Twenty20 final on Sunday. Sydney won each of their five matches including four group stage games to be considered by far the best team to take the field in the competition.
The unavailability of Watson is certainly a big blow for Sydney Sixers, given that a winner’s cheque of $2,500,000 rides on this match. Watson, incidentally, was a key figure when Sydney beat the Lions in a low scorer during the group stage earlier in the tournament.However, the Australian outfit will not be too concerned, given they have several players who have been in good touch.
