Brad Haddin, the winning Sydney Sixers Captain and also the Man of the Match says: "I don't think there was much nervous energy today as it was our 2nd game. The best thing about the trio of fast bowlers is they all bowl differently. Pretty lucky to have a bunch of bowlers who are all raring to have a go. Pretty happy with the way the boys played today, but important to keep getting better as the tournament goes on."
Andrew Gale, the losing Yorkshire SKipper says: "Probably felt 150-160 was a competitive score, once we fell short, we were chasing the game. The tall fast bowlers used the pitch well and we were found out. We will learn some valuable lessons from today and come back stronger. They broke our back while chasing during the first 3-4 overs."
