BBL 2021-22- James Vince returns to Sydney Sixers: England batsman James Vince will return to Sydney Sixers for the upcoming edition of the Big Bash League (BBL), the side informed on Tuesday.
BBL 2021-22- James Vince returns to Sydney Sixers: Vince has put pen to paper for his fourth campaign with the men in Magenta off the back of his late-season heroics last summer that played a huge part in propelling the Sixers to back-to-back BBL titles. “I don’t play for the personal accolades or awards, I play to be part of a winning team. What the Sixers have built on and off the field over the last few years is something really special and something I am proud to be part of,” Vince said in a statement.
“They are just a great bunch of lads and it’s everyone – players, coaches, support staff, the supporters. Shippy (Head Coach Greg Shipperd) creates an environment that we can all thrive in and we are all motivated to do our job for the team and our members and fans.
“To experience that final last season at the SCG, in what was our first trip back there all year, was something I’ll never forget,” he added.
