Sixers breakdown before Abbott’s heroics
Sixers’ expectations of a simple pursue dispersed with the early wicket of Josh Philippe, who has been a particularly main thrust for them this season, which set off a repulsiveness show. It was bumping to see the generally created Sixers look so particularly insecure as they couldn’t build up an association to consistent the boat.
Moises Henriques was the main hitter who appeared to be unafraid by the circumstance, yet when he fell for 15 the unimaginable was unfurling.
