BBL - Sixers v Scorchers

The Sydney Sixers have confirmed Jordan Silk will remain with the club for at least the next three summers.

An important part of the Sixers batting line-up and regarded as one of, if not the best fielder in the competition, Silk is one of the longest-tenured players in the competition.

He has recently passed 100 T20 appearances for the club, having made his debut in BBL|03. Only second to Moises Henriques for total runs scored in club history, Silk has scored 2007 runs at 31.85 in 112 matches, with six half-centuries and a strike rate sitting at a tick over 125.

He has taken 70 catches in 112 matches though and is a constant presence for the Sixers no matter which role he is played in.

The new contract will see him remain with the Sixers until at least the end of BBL|15, which will go through to the end of the 2025-26 summer and see Silk being 33 years of age. It means he could retire a one-club BBL player.

The head of the Sydney Sixers Jonathan Robinson-Lees said he was excited by Silk re-signing with the men in magenta.

“Jordan is a Sydney Sixer through and through” Robinson-Lees said in a statement.

“He is an integral part of this club, and we are thrilled that he has signed on for another three years.

“The energy that Jordan brings is contagious across the club and he is a true professional, on and off the field.

“Jordan is a fan favourite and it is fantastic that Sixers fans can see him in action for years to come.”

Silk will be part of the Sixers team who play the Brisbane Heat in the Challenger at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday.
