Georges River Council is pleased to continue its Summer of Cricket at Hurstville Oval by hosting the women’s Sydney Sixers for three Big Bash League games in January 2018.

Big Bash (Twenty20) cricket is a fun and fast-paced game, which is highly entertaining for spectators and the WBBL|02 Championship winning Sydney Sixers will be sure to draw a crowd.

The Sixers have a fantastic roster coming to Hurstville, including Captain Ellyse Perry, Sarah Aley, Ange Reakes, Lauren Smith, Emily Leys and daughter of former NSW Premier Morris Iemma, Clara Iemma.

On Saturday 27 January there will also be a big community day where there will be great music, food vans, an inflatable slide and other activities to keep the whole family entertained. Kids will also be able to eat for free on the day.

Georges River Council Mayor Cr Kevin Greene said he is very pleased to see more free cricket matches hosted at Hurstville Oval, this time for Twenty20 cricket.
