Sixers down Mumbai Indians

12:47 pm on 23 October 2012

Sydney Sixers proved they can cope without star allrounder Shane Watson, maintaining their unbeaten record in the Twenty20 Champions League with a 12-run win over the Mumbai Indians in Durban.

The Sixers successfully defended a modest score of 136, restricting Mumbai to 124 for eight, to complete a perfect record of four wins from as many group games.

It was Sydney's first game of the tournament without allrounder Watson, who returned to Australia at the weekend to rest up and prepare for the Test series against South Africa.
