Southern Brave's winning captain, James Vince, will again turn out for Sydney Sixers. Vince was a champion in the Big Bash League earlier in 2021 too, having hit 95 in the final. He was the third-top scorer in The Hundred this summer. Alongside him at Sixers will be fellow Brave Chris Jordan.

One player to look out for is Tim David. He only played the Eliminator and Final for Southern Brave, after Colin De Grandhomme's injury, but made a huge impact. David struck two sixes in the Final and then pulled off the match-changing run out of Liam Livingstone. Worth reliving that epic moment once again...

Oval Invincibles have the biggest contingent of players heading down under. Six of their stars will be on show, including Sam Billings and Saqib Mahmood, who will reunite at Sydney Thunder. They'll both be rivals with Tom Curran who is at Sydney Sixers. Will Jacks is one of four The Hundred players available to Hobart Hurricanes.

Curran and Billings: back together!

It's the Sixers who get the Big Bash League under way at 08:15 GMT on Sunday 5 December, so a first opportunity for Vince and Curran to light up the competition, against the Melbourne Stars. Joe Clarke will be in action for them, as Qais Ahmad has not yet joined the squad.
