SIXERS SMASH YOUTH CANCER

BBL team, the Sydney Sixers, fired their way to a thumping nine-wicket win over the Hobart Hurricanes in their super-match of the season at the SCG, on Wednesday 23rd Jan. In their annual charity match for Sony Foundation’s You Can, the boys in magenta were fired up and ready to go with extra motivation from the young patients and survivors they were playing for.

The Sixers team, wore with pride, special jerseys honouring young cancer patients and survivors with three powerful words of meaning emblazoned across the back of their jersey. You Can Champ and cricket fanatic, Nikhil, was invited onto the hallowed turf of the Sydney Cricket Ground to conduct the bat flip.

Cheered on by a huge crowd of You Can Champs and Sony Foundation supporters, the Sixers tore it up on field with special guest and celebrity 12th man, Reuben Styles from Sony Music’s duo Peking Duk with Reuben saying;

I am pretty much just chuffed to be able to support something which is so close to home, having had a mate who has been dealing with cancer for most of the time I have known him.”

Wearing the #1 jersey, Reuben’s featured the words ‘THIS TOO SHALL PASS’ from Lexie, a 15 year old Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia patient.
