And they’re on track for another monster total after Matthew Wade and D’Arcy Short posted a record-breaking partnership of 145 runs.

Matthew Wade and D’Arcy Short took the Sixers’ bowlers to the cleaners with a dominant opening partnership.
First Wade reached a half-century, then Short notched his 18th BBL fifty from 56 matches, alongside his two tons.
The pair reaffirmed their status as one of the finest opening duos in Big Bash history with the century-making partnership, making them the first duo to combine for FOUR 100+-run partnerships – and remarkably, all of those were 120 or more. The pair have twice posted more than that 145 – 203 in 2020 and 158* in 2019.
Given their bright start, the Hurricanes used the X-Factor substitution to sub out Peter Handscomb and add more firepower to their lower order through Tim David.
Impressively, Hurricanes coach Adam Griffith told Fox Cricket: “The good bloke that he is, he actually wandered over and suggested it.”
Wade was dropped on 77*, sending a ball straight up into the air before Daniel Hughes misjudged it and failed to even get a hand on the ball.
Wade threw away his century when he looked to dab a slower ball bouncer over third man, but only sent it straight into the hands of Ben Manenti. Wade fell for 86 off 44 balls, with 10 fours and three sixes.
It was Sean Abbott’s 100th Big Bash wicket, just the second player to reach the mark behind Ben Laughlin.
The partnership was 145 runs from 14.3 overs – a run rate of exactly 10.00.
McDermott was the next man in but lasted just four balls before skying a Dan Christian ball down the ground for Abbott to catch in the deep.
