Sydney Sixers captain Moises Henriques has backed Tom Curran and claims that his four-game BBL ban is character assassination. The English import was charged for umpire intimidation and the Sixers are appealing the ban, hoping to have Curran back on the field soon. Henriques believed the footage of the incident lacked context and the decision to impose a long ban was surprising. Curran is a respected member of the team and Henriques finds it hard to comprehend the penalty for what he has done.

Cricket Australia chief executive Nick Hockley emphasized the importance of respecting match officials and warned players to show respect during games. Meanwhile, Jordan Silk led the Sixers to a nailbiting one-run victory over the Adelaide Strikers and expressed that tight finishes have become a part of their playing style. Henriques performed well on the field and helped his team in defending their modest total. With the win secured, the Sixers kept their unbeaten start to the season alive.
