Sthalekar will work with both the BBL and WBBL squads at the Sixers

For Australia stars Lisa Sthalekar and Alex Blackwell have been named as list managers for Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder respectively bringing with them the experience of more than 400 international caps.

Sthalekar will work on the lists for both the BBL and WBBL Sixers sides while Blackwell will focus on the WBBL set-up for cross-town rivals Thunder who are the defending champions.

The roles were created after Cricket New South Wales had a shake-up of their structure which removed the general manager role from the two BBL clubs.

“We couldn’t be happier to have engaged Lisa and Alex to manage the playing lists at Cricket NSW’s BBL clubs,” Greg Mail, CNSW’s head of cricket, said.

“Their cricket pedigrees are obviously outstanding and they are both exceptional people who will bring decades of knowledge and experience to the role. The fact they both watch more cricket than most with their commentary roles and have had the chance to see plenty of talent from around Australia and across the world is a big positive.”
