O'Keefe, record stand give Sixers opening win
O'Keefe's three-wicket burst in his first two overs helped Sixers defend 165, which had been built on a record fourth-wicket stand of 124 between Jordan Silk and Daniel Hughes
6.31pm Sydney Sixers open their campaign with a canter, and it's two defeats in two for last-year's table-toppers, the Scorchers. A record stand between Daniel Hughes and Jordan Silk set this victory up and then the bowlers kept the pressure on with some good intelligent slower bowling and variations in pace. O'Keefe led that effort with his best BBL figures, and for that he's been named Player of the Match. Scorchers could've been chasing a lot lesser and were almost equal at the halfway mark, but that stand made all the difference.
That will be a wrap of this game then. But stick around, for this is a double-header Saturday and Heat v Hurricanes isn't far away. But from here, goodbye.
