An interesting fact about the Big Bash League (BBL) and the Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) is that the finals of the inaugural editions of both the tournaments featured the Sydney Sixers. But both the teams had a different story to tell.

In the WBBL, the Sydney Sixers lost to Sydney Thunder. However, in the BBL, the men's team defeated Perth Scorchers to become the inaugural champions. But since then, they have not been able to match their female counterparts.

The Sydney Sixers women's team bounced back from that loss and won the next two tournaments. For the men's team, it remains their only BBL trophy till date. They did make another two appearances in the finals (2014-15 and 2016-17) but could not capture the trophy again.

It will also be interesting to note that all the three finals that the Sydney Sixers were involved in had the same opponents - Perth Scorchers. How has the Sydney Sixers' journey beeso far in the BBL? Let us take a statistical look at the popular Big Bash club.
