BBL 2021-22: Lloyd Pope replaces injured Ben Manenti in Sydney Sixers for BBL 11

BBL 2021-22: Striker Lloyd Pope has replaced Ben Manenti, who will miss the rest of the tournament due to injury.

Sydney Sixers cameraman Ben Manenti has been dropped from the ongoing BBL 11 season. Manenti isn’t a big name, but he played a big part in Sydney’s two-title win. He was always the second mainstay for Steve O’Keefe at the side. Ben Manenti is famous for his thrifty bowling game and is a sly pitcher. Moises Henriques has described this as a “huge blow” for the side.

Henriques said: “He (Manenti) was fantastic for us and I know he doesn’t play every game because of how difficult it is, but every game he plays he plays well.

“He’s learned a lot from Steve (O’Keefe), and I think they’re having a great little partnership. They communicate really well, and so does Lloyd. ”

The Sydney Sixers added Lloyd Pope to their squad against the Melbourne Stars. Lloyd emerged after the 2018 U-19 World Cup. This is Pope’s fourth season as a Sydney player, and he’s only played a few games. Pope will face the likes of Stoinis, Maxwell and Russel in the match against the Melbourne Stars, he said in that respect.

“I don’t know if I put it together too well, they are one of the best players in the world,” Pope said.

“They are really great players to go up against and it was a great sight at the MCG. I would enjoy the opportunity if I could play against those guys. “

Steve O’Keefe is a mentor to both Ben Manenti and Lloyd Pope on the Sixers. Pope made Steve O’Keefe a big part of his development.

“He (O’Keefe) was an absolute genius,” Pope said.

“He teaches me so many different things and we work together on training all the time so I can’t say enough about him.”

“We talk a lot about the game’s tactics, I feel that’s where his biggest weapon is.”

The Sydney Sixers will face the Melbourne Stars at the MCG on December 15, 2021.
