Mitchell Starc is the Man of the Match for his superb bowling show, here is what he says: "Playing a lot of cricket and working on a few little things that need tinkering has helped me and the ball is coming out nicely. I like bowling at the death and it is a challenge I enjoy. We are all great mates (Pat and Hazle) and enjoying it out there."
Brad Haddin, the victorious Sydney Sixers' Captain says: "Today was very good in patches and not so good at times. Pretty happy with the total to chase. I'm pretty lucky that I have got three good seamers, one had an off day. If all three seamers fire, we will be very tough to beat. We have got cover for Watson and we wish him well. We are thinking about the Semis now."
Alviro Petersen, the losing Lions Captain says: "We had a good start, I though we played beautifully, just a couple of bad overs in the middle and in T20 it can change very quickly. Phangiso is a very under-rated bowler, guys will look at him differently now."
