    The Melbourne Renegades have snatched a much-needed BBL derby win, recording a five-wicket victory against the COVID-19 ravaged Melbourne Stars at the MCG.

    Having to call-up club cricketers as they attempt to push on without 12 squad players, the Stars were eyeing off an extraordinary upset as the Renegades lost 4-18.

    But the inexperienced pair of Mackenzie Harvey (23 not out) and James Seymour (17 not out) steered the Renegades past the Stars' paltry total of 126 with 12 balls to spare.

    Renegades captain Nic Maddinson proved to be the unlikely destroyer with the ball to set the tone for the contest.

    Maddinson claimed career-best figures of 3-20 after entering the match having taken just nine wickets from 127 T20 games.

    The Renegades' second win of the tournament - and just their seventh victory in 21 games against the Stars - came with plenty of anxious moments.

    Melbourne's red team were cruising at 1-73 from just nine overs with ace duo Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh at the crease.

    But Finch's important innings of 50 ended in controversy after the video umpire deemed Haris Rauf completed a catch despite footage possibly indicating the Pakistani quick touched the boundary rope with his foot.

    The mini collapse ultimately did not matter as Harvey and Seymour showed composure to lead the Renegades home.

    In a shining light for the Stars, young Pakistani fast bowler Ahmed Daniyal dismissed Marsh for a wicket on his BBL debut.

    But Maxwell, who was one of just four players remaining from his team's game seven days ago, was unable to pull the Stars out of a hole and was dismissed for seven.

    Star quick Kane Richardson (3-24) followed up Maddinson's good work to strike fear through the Stars' tail.

    Already without 10 squad members for Sunday's loss against the Perth Scorchers, English opener Joe Clarke and top-up player Tom Rogers were ruled out of the derby after recording positive COVID-19 tests.

    Renegades fast bowler James Pattinson was also unable to take to the field as he awaits his result from a coronavirus test taken four days ago.

    The former Australia Test bowler undertook a PCR test on December 30 but is still waiting to hear if he is positive or negative.

    The Renegades experience was too much for the young Stars squad, taking their second win of their BBL|11 campaign by five wickets.

    The Melbourne Renegades will look to make it two on the trot against the Brisbane Heat on Thursday, while the Melbourne Stars have an extended break, facing the Adelaide Strikers on Friday.

    The KFC Big Bash League has confirmed a revised schedule for three matches to be played at Metricon Stadium, Gold Coast over the next three nights from tonight (January 4-6).

    January 4, 6:15pm AEST: Perth Scorchers v Sydney Sixers (previously scheduled for January 6)

    January 5, 8:15pm AEST: Brisbane Heat v Sydney Sixers (previously scheduled for January 4)

    January 6, 8:15pm AEST: Perth Scorchers v Sydney Thunder (previously scheduled for January 5)

    The changes have been made after positive rapid antigen tests were recorded within the Heat squad this morning. The Club has now undertaken PCR testing of all players and support staff, plus potential replacement players.

    All four Clubs’ squads are currently in South East Queensland, giving the League the required flexibility to make these scheduling changes.

    Ticket holders will be contacted directly via Ticketek to discuss options for attendance or refunds.

    The League and Clubs will continue to prioritise the safety of all players, match officials, staff, fans and the wider community throughout the KFC BBL|11 season.

    Cricket Australia’s General Manager of Big Bash Leagues, Alistair Dobson, said:

    “Firstly, our thoughts continue to be with players and staff across all Clubs, plus all in the wider community, who have been infected with COVID-19. We wish them all the best for a speedy recovery.

    “The League and Clubs have learned to be nimble in the current environment and we are pleased that we have found a solution to help safeguard all three matches so quickly.

    “We thank all Clubs for their cooperation and our fans for their understanding in these rapidly evolving circumstances.”

    The Perth Scorchers have extended their lead at the top of the KFC BBL ladder after surviving a Dan Christian masterclass and some last-minute rescheduling dramas to defeat the Sydney Sixers by 10 runs at the Gold Coast's Metricon Stadium.

    After limiting the Scorchers to a seemingly modest 8-143 on Tuesday night, the Sixers slumped to 4-16 courtesy of a searing new-ball assault from firebrands Lance Morris and Tymal Mills, who both pushed the speedgun past the 150kmh mark.

    The Sixers remained in trouble in the top-of-the-table blockbuster at 6-67 when Sean Abbott, the hero in their miraculous win over the Brisbane Heat, nicked off to the impressive Andrew Tye (3-17).

    The Sixers' flickering hopes remained in the hands of ageless Twenty20 master Christian, who threatened a similar miracle, riding his luck in an entertaining 73.

    He started slowly, survived two confident caught-behind shouts and a missed stumping before launching a flurry of big blows late to give the Sixers a sniff before finally succumbing to Tye in the penultimate over.

    The Sixers ended their innings on 8-133.

    Earlier, Christian proved miserly with the ball (2-14), combining with speedster Hayden Kerr (4-32) to keep the Scorchers in relative check.

    Christian snared two wickets in the 11th over – after spinner Stephen O'Keefe left the field with a suspected broken right middle finger – before taking a wonderful one-handed catch at short cover to dismiss Perth captain Ashton Turner (1).

    The Scorchers blasted 70 off the last six overs, thanks chiefly to a career-best 45 from Aaron Hardie as a difficult day ended on a sparkling high.

    The Scorchers were originally slated to play the Sydney Thunder on Thursday before being bumped into the Tuesday night timeslot to replace the Heat at short notice after positive COVID-19 cases were recorded in Brisbane's squad.

    The Heat became the fourth BBL club to be hit by COVID-19 in the past week after members of the Heat camp returned positive results in rapid antigen testing on Tuesday morning.

    That forced a fixture reshuffle, with the planned Heat-Sixers clash postponed a day, with the Scorchers stepping in to face the Sixers instead.

    With those three teams plus the Sydney Thunder all in Queensland already, officials have shuffled the order of this week's games as the Heat await the results of PCR tests.

    Those results are expected on Wednesday morning, with the Heat to provide an update on any squad changes.

    The league is expected to move to a hub-style situation to ensure the season can be completed with increasing case levels around the country.

    Tonight’s KFC Big Bash League match between Brisbane Heat and Sydney Sixers at Metricon Stadium has been postponed.

    Twelve Heat players today returned positive PCR tests for COVID-19 and are currently isolating. Despite its best endeavours, the Club was unable to recruit enough replacement players in the 24 hours since the first case was identified to make up the required squad of 13 for tonight’s match.

    The League will advise a new date for the match as soon as possible. Ticket holders for tonight’s match will be contacted directly regarding the refund process.

    The Heat’s game tomorrow against the Melbourne Renegades at GMHBA Stadium, Geelong, remains scheduled to go ahead. The club is working through the recruitment and testing requirements for players to take part in that match.

    Tonight’s other scheduled match between the Adelaide Strikers and Hobart Hurricanes will now begin at the revised start time of 6:45pm ACDT/7:15pm AEDT.

    The League and all Clubs will continue to prioritise the health and safety of all players, match officials, staff, fans and the wider community throughout the KFC BBL|11 season.

    Alistair Dobson, Cricket Australia’s General Manager of Big Bash Leagues, said:

    “We acknowledge the wholehearted efforts of the Brisbane Heat to field a team tonight. However, in the time available it was not possible for them to secure the 13 players required, hence the decision to postpone the match.

    “At all times the League, in consultation with our Clubs, governments, broadcasters, partners and venues have worked tirelessly to make the best decision for the whole competition based on the information available, with health and safety the top priority.

    “In this instance, the decision to postpone tonight’s match was the only option available given the number of cases within the Heat squad and the inability to secure the required number of players fit to take the field.

    “We thank our fans for their understanding in these difficult circumstances.”

    Melbourne Stars captain Glenn Maxwell has returned a positive rapid antigen test and is isolating.

    One of the Big Bash League’s marquee players, Maxwell tested positive after Monday’s loss to the Melbourne Renegades at the MCG.

    The Stars have released a statement saying Maxwell has taken a PCR test for COVID-19 and is isolating.

    The Renegades also had to cancel training on Wednesday afternoon when one of their squad returned a positive RAT.

    All players and support staff were to undergo PCR tests ahead of Thursday night’s match against the Brisbane Heat.

    Twelve Melbourne Stars players have contracted COVID-19, forcing them to call up Victorian club cricketers to field a team for their last two games.

    Also, the Perth Scorchers answered an SOS to play the Sydney Sixers in a hurried piece of BBL rescheduling after the Brisbane Heat were cut down by COVID-19 issues.
    P
    The Heat were due to take on the Sixers on Tuesday night at Metricon Stadium, but they were dropped from the fixture just five hours before the toss after several members of the travelling party returned positive rapid antigen tests.

    The Scorchers were scheduled to play the Sixers in a grand final rematch on Thursday before scoring a 10-run win on the Gold Coast.

    The Heat will now take on the Sixers on Wednesday, with the Scorchers’ match against the Sydney Thunder moved from Wednesday to Thursday.

    Anxiety is running high across the BBL after multiple COVID-19 outbreaks, leaving CA with the predicament of trying to figure out how to complete the season while keeping players and staff safe.

    A Melbourne hub remains on the cards.

    Tomorrow night’s KFC Big Bash League match between Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Stars has been postponed.

    The Melbourne Stars currently have 13 players in isolation after testing positive for COVID-19. A number of those players are due to exit isolation soon, subject to a negative test.

    However, with concern for the health and wellbeing of those players, the League has deemed it unreasonable for them to play a match in the time available after exiting isolation.

    The League will advise a new date for the match shortly, along with plans to safely execute the remainder of the KFC BBL|11 season.

    The League and clubs will continue to prioritise the health and safety of all players, match officials, staff, fans and the wider community throughout the season.

    Alistair Dobson, Cricket Australia’s General Manager of Big Bash Leagues, said:

    “We have been in constant dialogue with the Stars over the past week as a large portion of their playing group and support staff have been in isolation. We thank them for their cooperation at this difficult time.

    “It has become clear in recent days that, despite the likelihood of players exiting isolation soon, it would not be appropriate for those players to immediately travel to Adelaide and play that night.

    “We will continue to work with the Stars to support their players and staff throughout the remainder of the season.

    “Inclusive of tonight’s matches, 22 of the scheduled 56 regular season matches remain in KFC BBL|11. The League will provide further clarity shortly around a robust plan for those matches to safely take place, including the rescheduling of the three postponed matches to date.”

    A coach's son, an electrician, an opener with a first-class strike-rate of 33 and a club cricketer who yesterday was fishing in central Queensland are among the 10 new players the COVID-19 ravaged Brisbane Heat have recruited for tonight's KFC BBL match against the Melbourne Renegades.

    Tom Cooper has been appointed captain of a decimated Heat side that will play in Geelong tonight despite 12 players and a coach contracting the virus, the second major league outbreak after the Melbourne Stars were left in a similar position last week.

    Pakistan recruit Fakhar Zaman will bolster the Heat and make his debut alongside at least seven others who have never played for the club before, including assistant coach Darren Lehmann's son Jake – an experienced campaigner with South Australia and the Adelaide Strikers – and Australia A opener Bryce Street.

    In a further blow however, Queensland's border restrictions may prevent Fakhar, who only recently arrived in the country, from travelling to Brisbane to play in the Heat's following match on Saturday against the Hobart Hurricanes.

    An exemption could be sought if players are brought into a BBL hub in Victoria over the coming days, plans for which are believed to be in motion.

    Spinner Jack Wood, the electrician who played one match for the Heat last season, has been called up alongside fellow Queensland-contracted players Lachlan Pfeffer, Jack Clayton and Will Prestwidge.

    Steve McGiffin, Ronan McDonald and Paddy Dooley have been plucked out of Queensland Premier Cricket while Lehmann and paceman David Grant have come from SA.

    The circumstance of McGiffin's call-up highlights just how far and wide COVID-impacted teams are having to search for fit players.

    The 24-year-old fast bowler was fishing 90 minutes on a charter boat off-shore from Turkey Beach near Gladstone when he received the Heat's SOS and swiftly made the six-and-a-half hour drive back to Brisbane to join his new teammates.

    Star spinner Mujeeb ur Rahman and batter Sam Heazlett are the only members of the most recent Heat team that played on New Year's Day to be available tonight. Their game against Sydney Sixers last night was postponed due to this outbreak.

    In total there are 10 players who have never played for the Heat in their hastily assembled 14-man squad to face the Renegades, who are also awaiting the results of PCR test results after one of their players returned a positive rapid test.

    Coach Wade Seccombe also has the virus, with assistant James Hopes taking the reins.

    "We’re excited as a group, probably a bit nervous as individuals, but everyone is accepting of the circumstances and is raring to go," said Hopes.

    "All of the players can look at this experience as an opportunity to improve, to test their skills, and simply enjoy the chance to play in the BBL and have some fun.

    "We’re grateful to everyone who has got us to this point. Our thoughts are with the players and Wade who are in isolation and we’re looking forward to doing our best for them and for the Heat fans and supporters."

    The Heat have named a further five players - Noah McFadyen, Nikhil Chaudhary, Josh Brown, Will Sanders, Sam Truloff – to be on standby in Brisbane.

    "We've got three healthy (players from the existing squad) at the moment," Darren Lehmann told Fox Cricket yesterday. "Hopefully the guys who have got COVID are going to be ok and the guys who have come in are from all over Australia. I'm sure they'll do well.

    "At the moment we just don't know how it's going to play out. What it does do is give great opportunities for young players from club land. We've got some young players coming in – so good luck to them.

    "Spirits are up… we've just got to push on. You get your side back in seven days and you see what happens."

    Brisbane Heat squad to play Renegades: Tom Cooper (c), Fakhar Zaman*, Jack Clayton*, Sam Heazlett, Jake Lehmann*, Lachlan Pfeffer*, Steve McGiffin*, Will Prestwidge*, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Ronan McDonald*, David Grant*, Bryce Street*, Paddy Dooley*, Jack Wood

    Sydney Thunder paceman Gurinder Sandhu snared the third hat-trick of his professional career and just the seventh in KFC BBL history as his side again defeated the Perth Scorchers in BBL|11.

    The Scorchers remain six points clear at the top of the ladder, and their only two defeats this summer have come at the hands of the Thunder, who now sit joint second after a six-wicket win on the Gold Coast.

    In an innings reduced to 18 overs due to an early rain delay in Thursday's match, Sandhu snared 4-22 to put the Thunder in the box seat for victory, restricting Perth to 9-133.

    Under the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method, the Thunder required 135 for victory.

    Matthew Gilkes made the early running with Alex Hales struggling for consistency in his return after a COVID-related absence.

    Jason Sangha's two mighty sixes in his 26-ball 34 showed why he is one of the breakout stars of BBL|11, and when he fell he was replaced by another up-and-coming star in Ollie Davies who promptly hit two sixes of his won before being brilliantly run out by a diving Andrew Tye in his follow through four short of the target.

    Sam Billings finished the game with a straight four to end with an unbeaten 19 from 11 balls.

    Billings, Perth's Tymal Mills (0-21 from three overs) and Thunder quick Saqib Mahmood will tomorrow return to the UK ahead of the England's T20 tour of the Caribbean.

    Thunder's Pakistan recruit Mohammad Hasnain was prevented from playing in this match due to Queensland's border restrictions.

    In November, Sandhu became the first Australian to pick up two List-A hat-tricks.

    His first came while playing for Tasmania against Victoria in the Marsh Cup final in 2018, and he repeated the heroics while playing for Queensland in a 50-over match against South Australia in November.

    The 28-year-old now has a BBL hat-trick to his name after snaring Scorchers trio Colin Munro (18 off 20 balls), Aaron Hardie (4), and Laurie Evans (20) in consecutive deliveries.

    Sandhu didn't realise he had taken a hat-trick until after the Scorchers had batted.

    "I had absolutely no idea, which is kind of a good thing because then maybe I would have tried too hard on that ball or changed up what I was doing," Sandhu told AAP.

    "As I walked off, I chatted to Erin Holland from Channel 7 and she said, 'Well done, the first Sydney Thunder player to get a hat-trick'.

    "I actually thought in my mind that she stuffed up, but I was the one who had it wrong.

    "I was surprised, because I had no idea. I've already had one this year, so I was like, 'there's no chance anybody can get two in a year, let alone in a career'.

    "It's pretty cool. It's something when I finish playing I'll look back on and go, 'wow'."

    Munro was the first to fall in the latest hat-trick on the last ball of the 12th over when he struck Sandhu straight to cover.

    Then, as Sandhu returned to the attack in the 16th over, Hardie immediately holed out in the deep, before Evans skied one high for an easy catch.

    Ashton Agar (22 off 10 balls), who managed to ensure Sandhu didn't make it four wickets from four balls, proved the only Scorchers player to strike the ball with any real consistency.

    Thunder spinner Chris Green (1-9 off two overs) combined brilliantly with Sandhu to keep the Scorchers' run rate down.

Along with the barefoot circle, Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony, an immersive experience for attendees at matches will be created including incorporation of local languages and traditions throughout the match days.

    D'Arcy Short, Mitakoodi man and Hobart Hurricanes player, said:

    “I’m excited to be able to play in the BBL’s first First Nations Round this year. It’s great that our sport and the League has got to this point, and hopefully we can keep the tradition going in BBL seasons to come.”

    Alistair Dobson, Cricket Australia’s General Manager of Big Bash Leagues, said:

    “The League was proud to launch our inaugural First Nations Rounds throughout WBBL|07 and will continue to celebrate and honour First Nations people and cultures throughout First Nations Round in the BBL.

    “We are thankful for our Indigenous players in both the BBL and WBBL and we are proud to see them play an important role as role models for young Indigenous cricketers throughout Australia.

    “We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of all the lands on which cricket is played and especially thank those who are hosting us for our First Nations Rounds.”

    Revised KFC BBL|11 schedule for January 10-16

    The KFC Big Bash League has confirmed an adjusted schedule for the week of January 10-16, which includes two of the matches previously postponed.

    Changes to the schedule have been made to prioritise the health and safety of all players, match officials, staff, fans and the wider community. These changes will also provide greater flexibility and operational efficiency for the League and Clubs.

    Additionally, players and support staff from all clubs will primarily be based in Victoria for the remainder of the competition. All will remain under biosecurity protocols, while revised travel arrangements to and from interstate matches will be implemented to reduce their exposure to the wider community.

    Key details of the revised KFC BBL|11 schedule include:

    Eleven matches in seven days from January 10-16 inclusive.
    Matches at six venues - Adelaide Oval, Gabba, GMHBA Stadium, Melbourne Cricket Ground, Marvel Stadium and Sydney Cricket Ground.
    The postponed Perth Scorchers v Melbourne Stars match from December 30 to be played on January 11.
    The postponed Adelaide Strikers v Melbourne Stars match from December 7 to be played on January 15
    Three double headers in Victoria – January 10 (MCG), 11 (GMHBA Stadium) and 13 (Marvel Stadium).
    Two additional double-header matchdays across two venues on January 8 (as previously scheduled) and 15
    January 15’s Sydney Smash between the Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder at the Sydney Cricket Ground to begin at a revised start time of 6:40pm AEDT.

    The League will confirm the schedule for the remainder of the regular season in coming days.

    Ticket information to all revised fixtures will be available shortly via cricket.com.au/big-bash.

    Alistair Dobson, Cricket Australia’s General Manager of Big Bash Leagues, said:

    “The past week has thrown many COVID-related challenges the Big Bash’s way, but throughout we have remained steadfast in our resolve to safely and successfully complete the season.

    “These changes are designed to help the League and Clubs deliver on this, while also reducing risks to players, support staff and the matches themselves. Having our players based in one state provides significantly greater flexibility to manage any further impacts of COVID-19.

    “From challenges also comes opportunity and we are excited by the prospect of some huge double header matchdays in Geelong and Melbourne. We also look forward to retaining matches in Adelaide, Brisbane and the January 15 Derby in Sydney and seeing home fans turning out for these games.

    “We thank everyone who continues to work so hard behind the scenes to safely deliver the competition including all players, League and Club staff, match officials, governments, broadcasters, partners, and venues.”

    Central Local Replacement Player pool created for remainder of KFC BBL|11 season

    A central pool of Local Replacement Players (LRPs) has been created for the remainder of the KFC BBL|11 season.

    Each player will live under BBL protocols and be assigned a ‘home’ Club for logistical purposes while part of the central pool. A player can then be contracted by any club as an LRP under the existing BBL contracting rules.

    The eight players currently in the central LRP pool are (home club in brackets):
    Nicholas Bertus (Sydney Sixers)
    Jake Carder (Perth Scorchers)
    Iain Carlisle (Hobart Hurricanes)
    Daniel Drew (Adelaide Strikers)
    Jake Doran (Melbourne Stars)
    Lachlan Hearne (Sydney Thunder)
    Lachlan Pfeffer (Brisbane Heat – currently in Heat 18-player squad)
    Brayden Stepien (Melbourne Renegades)
    Note: The League expects additional LRPs to be added to this list in coming days.

    Clubs are unable to sign LRPs from outside the central pool for the remainder of KFC BBL|11 unless approved by the BBL Technical Committee.

    In addition to the above list, LRPs that are already in a Club’s 18-player squad can remain with that Club. If one of these LRPs is replaced by a returning primary player, the LRP can join the central pool at the BBL’s Technical Committee’s discretion.

    Alistair Dobson, Cricket Australia’s General Manager of Big Bash Leagues, said:

    “The Local Replacement Player pool is another example of the League and Clubs working together to address the challenges of the season with innovative solutions.

    “The player pool provides Clubs with increased options should injury, illness or other circumstances affect availability of players, while also streamlining the process of integrating LRPs into the group from a biosecurity perspective.”

    Afghan leg-spinner Rashid Khan has lit up the Gabba to steer the Strikers off the bottom of the BBL|11 ladder with a 71-run win over the Brisbane Heat.

    Khan dismissed Heat batters Sam Heazlett (0) and Jake Lehmann (0) in consecutive deliveries in his second over on his way to match-winning figures of 6-17 as the Heat were bowled out for 90 in 15 overs on Wednesday.

    It's Rashid's final game of the season, with the leg-spinner soon departing for international duty.

    The 23-year-old's double strike was part of a team hat-trick with Lachlan Pfeffer (23 off 24) run out off the first ball of the over.

    Khan then removed Heazlett and Lehmann for first-ball ducks as Brisbane went from 2-62 at the start of the ninth over to 5-62 just three deliveries later.

    When English import Ben Duckett (24), who smashed a match-winning 78 runs off just 47 balls when the teams met earlier this summer, bottom-edged a slog sweep onto his stumps off Matthew Short (2-13) two overs later, the hosts were reduced to 6-67.

    Khan returned to secure the third-best bowling figures in BBL history when he claimed three more wickets in his fourth and final over to wrap up the win.

    Earlier, Adelaide skipper Peter Siddle chose to bat as the Heat welcomed back six players from COVID isolation.

    Led by Jake Weatherald's 35 off 31 deliveries, Adelaide scored a competitive 4-161 off their 20 overs.

    Khan had a similar impact with the bat as he did with the ball after he was elevated to No.6 in the order in a pinch-hitting role.

    He scored back-to-back sixes off his first two deliveries before being bowled off his pads by compatriot Mujeeb Ur Rahman (1-28) to end his four-ball 13-run innings.

    Will Prestwidge was the pick of the bowlers for the Heat with 2-34 while Matthew Kuhnemann (1-27) was the other wicket-taker.

    The victory, which included the Bash Boost point, lifts the Strikers from the bottom of the ladder to fifth and ahead of the Heat with four matches to play ahead of the BBL|11 finals.

    The Strikers host table-topping Perth on Friday in Adelaide while the Heat’s next scheduled game is on the road against the Melbourne Stars in Victoria on Sunday.

    The previously postponed Brisbane Heat v Sydney Sixers match from January 5 has been moved to January 19, with a number of other time, venue and date changes to other matches across the three days. Four of the final six matches will be held in Melbourne.

    These changes follow the previously announced schedule adjustments for the period of January 10-16 and the move for Clubs to be primarily based out of Victoria.

    All changes have been made to prioritise the health and safety of all players, match officials, staff, fans and the wider community while also providing greater flexibility and operational efficiency for the League and Clubs.

    The revised schedule for January 17-19 is:

    January 17, 4:35pm ACDT: Adelaide Strikers v Sydney Sixers, Adelaide Oval. Seven, Foxtel & Kayo
    January 17, 8:15pm AEDT: Brisbane Heat v Perth Scorchers, Marvel Stadium. Seven, Foxtel & Kayo

    January 19, 7:50pm AEDT: Melbourne Stars v Hobart Hurricanes, Melbourne Cricket Ground. Seven, Foxtel & Kayo
    Ticket information to all revised fixtures will be available shortly via cricket.com.au/big-bash. Existing ticket holders will be contacted directly.

    The League will confirm arrangements for the KFC BBL|11 Finals series in coming days.

    Alistair Dobson, Cricket Australia’s General Manager, Big Bash Leagues, said:

    “We are pleased to release this revised schedule for January 17-19 and provide greater certainty for fans, participants and partners of the KFC BBL.

    “The challenges of the pandemic have led us to making some difficult decisions, but our priority has always been the safe and successful completion of the season. We believe the two rounds of revisions to the schedule announced in recent days give all involved the best chance of doing so.

    “Our thanks go to all players, Club staff, governments, broadcasters, partners, and venues whose commitment to the KFC BBL has ensured its continuation this season.”

    An inspired spell from veteran spinner Steve O'Keefe and a brutal batting display has put the Sydney Sixers in the box seat to claim second spot at the end of the KFC BBL|11 season.

    Facing an imposing chase of 198 in the second Sydney Smash of the season, the Sydney Thunder crumbled under the pressure of their cross-town rivals at the SCG, who dominated the match after the first four overs.

    The win puts them into second, level on points with the Thunder but the Sixers have game in hand. Unless they lose both of their remaining fixtures against the Strikers and Heat, they look set to finish in the top two and earn the right to face the Scorchers for a spot in the BBL|11 decider.

    It was the Sixers batters who starred after a slow start, with Josh Philippe and Daniel Hughes registering half centuries before skipper Moises Henriques finished the innings with a flurry of boundaries.

    Thunder captain Chris Green elected to bowl first on Saturday night and his bowlers were immediately on top, holding the Sixers to 1-8 in the Powerplay, which was the lowest score since it became four overs at the start of last season.

    But Philippe was still there, and he lifted the rate with a ramp over the wicketkeeper's head for four as the next over from Gurinder Sandhu (1-46) went for 10.

    Philippe and Hughes proceeded to put on 45 runs from the four overs following the Powerplay, with Tanveer Sangha, Green and Nathan McAndrew (2-30) copping the brunt of the increased aggression.

    It was a welcome return to form for Philippe ahead of the finals after three ducks in his previous four innings. After a slow start, he finished with a rapid 35-ball 57.

    Hughes, who has scored the most runs in the history of the Sydney Smash, also found the boundary regularly after scoring just two from 12 balls in the Powerplay.

    The left-hander finished with 66 from 48 to take his tally to 435 in the local derby, 41 ahead of Henriques on 394.

    The Thunder bowlers seemed to lose their cool from then on, with Pakistani quick Mohammad Hasnain involved in several heated exchanges with Henriques.




    Daniel Sams also gifted Hughes a free hit, which he dispatched for six over square leg, by bowling two bouncers above the shoulder in an over.

    Henriques continued in the same vein that Philippe and Hughes with an unbeaten 47 from 27 balls, and when Sean Abbott smoked the first ball he faced and last ball of the innings over the rope, the Sixers had posted a huge total of 5-197.

    From the end of the Powerplay, the Sixers went at a run rate of 11.81 for the remaining 16 overs as Sandhu, Sams, Green and McAndrew all conceded 10 runs or more an over.

    The Thunder started brightly with Alex Hales (23) and Jason Sangha (22) taking the score to 42 before O'Keefe rammed home the Sixers' advantage.

    The wily 37-year-old left-armer, who had missed the previous two games with a hand injury, removed Hales and Alex Ross in his first over and then Sams and Oliver Davies in his third to reduce the Thunder to 5-61.

    O'Keefe finished with 4-18 from his four overs, while Ben Dwarshuis also chipped in with two wickets to move to 98 in his BBL career.

    Green restored some respectability to the scorecard with 50 from 31 balls but in the end, his side fell 60 runs short.

    The Thunder, who are guaranteed of a top three finish, round out their regular season against the Renegades at the MCG on Wednesday.

    The Sixers, who are also guaranteed of a top three finish, play the Strikers on Monday and the Heat on Wednesday.

    The KFC BBL's international contingent has been reduced to 12 players for the run to the finals after the Pakistan Cricket Board called another star player home early from the tournament.

    The Brisbane Heat were left scrambling just hours before their must-win game against the Stars in Melbourne on Sunday night after the PCB rescinded permission for opener Fakhar Zaman to play in the remainder of the competition.

    Fakhar follows countrymen Mohammad Hasnain (Sydney Thunder), Haris Rauf (Stars) and Shadab Khan (Sydney Sixers) in leaving the tournament early to prepare for the Pakistan Super League, which starts on January 27.

    However, the Stars' Pakistani duo Ahmad Daniyal and Syed Faridoun, neither of whom are capped at international level, will remain for the rest of the competition.

    KFC BBL|11 Finals series update

    The KFC Big Bash League has confirmed revisions to its Finals series structure, designed to safeguard the matches against the potential impacts of COVID-19.

    A five-match Finals series, beginning this Friday, January 21 remains but changes have been made to the hosting structure of those games.

    Details of the Finals series are below.


    Week One

    All three matches scheduled for the first week of the KFC BBL|11 Finals on January 21, 22 and 23 will be held in Melbourne.

    Clubs have been primarily based in Victoria since January 10, providing greater optionality in addressing scheduling challenges. The League has elected to keep participants in Melbourne for the first week of the Finals to reduce the health risks associated with travel and any potential impacts on the series.

    As the team that finished on top of the table, Perth Scorchers were given the opportunity to select their preferred home venue for The Qualifier and nominated Marvel Stadium for that match. As such, the other week one matches will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

    The schedule for week one is:
    The Eliminator - January 21, 7:15pm AEDT: Fourth v Fifth, Melbourne Cricket Ground
    The Qualifier - January 22, 7:15pm AEDT: Perth Scorchers (First) v Second, Marvel Stadium
    The Knockout - January 23, 7:15pm AEDT: Third v winner of The Eliminator, Melbourne Cricket Ground
    Week Two

    The remaining Finals matches, scheduled for January 26 and 28, will be held at the nominated home venues of the participating clubs.

    As per the current KFC BBL|11 ladder, teams in contention to host week two matches include:

    Perth Scorchers - Marvel Stadium
    Sydney Sixers - Sydney Cricket Ground
    Sydney Thunder - Sydney Showground Stadium
    Hobart Hurricanes - Blundstone Arena
    The schedule for week two is:
    The Challenger - January 26, 7:25pm AEDT: Loser of The Qualifier v winner of The Knockout
    The Final - January 28, 7:40pm AEDT: Winner of The Qualifier v winner of The Challenger


    Alistair Dobson, Cricket Australia’s General Manager of Big Bash Leagues, said:

    “The KFC BBL|11 Finals series will be an exciting conclusion to a season that has provided fantastic moments on the field, coupled with unprecedented challenges off it.

    “The League’s firm belief is that we must work together with our Clubs to do all we can to protect the Finals series using the lessons from the season so far.

    “As such, we have made the difficult decision to stage the first week of the Finals series in Melbourne. This decision provides all participating Clubs the best possible chance of participating in a Finals match with the strongest squad available.

    “We thank all our fans nationwide for their support throughout KFC BBL|11 and look forward to seeing all who can make it at the Finals series.”

    KFC Big Bash League Statement: Perth Scorchers

    Perth Scorchers have been found guilty of a breach of the W/BBL Player Contracting and Remuneration Rules (Rules) at a Cricket Australia Code of Conduct Commission hearing on Tuesday, January 18.

    The Scorchers fielded Central Local Replacement Player Brayden Stepien during their KFC Big Bash League match against the Adelaide Strikers at Adelaide Oval on Friday, January 14. Stepien kept wicket for 14 overs during the Strikers’ batting innings despite not being part of the Scorchers’ 18-player squad.

    At the hearing, Commissioner Alan Sullivan QC heard evidence from representatives of both Clubs and Cricket Australia. He determined that Stepien was an ineligible player for the match and as such, the decision to field Stepien was a breach of the Rules.

    The Commissioner determined the penalty for the Scorchers would be the deduction of their Bash Boost point earned on the night. He noted the unique and challenging circumstances of the current KFC Big Bash League season and the low impact of this breach.

    For clarity, the Bash Boost point from that match will not be awarded to the Strikers.

    A clutch last over from Harry Conway has powered the Adelaide Strikers into the final three of KFC BBL|11 after a thrilling win over the Sydney Thunder at the MCG.

    Needing 14 from the final six balls to set up a blockbuster clash with the Sixers at the SCG on Wednesday, the Thunder's Ben Cutting and Alex Ross could only manage seven as they fell six runs short of the Strikers' 6-184.

    In a game that ebbed and flowed all night, the talking point will undoubtedly be the dismissal of in-form Test batter Usman Khawaja.

    With the match delicately poised in the Thunder's chase, Khawaja advanced down the wicket in the seventh over to Matt Short and sliced a drive to short third man where Fawad Ahmed dived forward and appeared to get his fingers under a low chance.

    The umpires sent the catch upstairs and after a few minutes of deliberation, the third umpire couldn't overturn the on-field decision and controversially sent the left-hander on his way.

    Khawaja told Fox Cricket after his dismissal that he "didn't agree with it but (he) had to accept it".

    "The soft signal cost me, I've never been a big fan of the soft signal; when they give it out on the field it makes it hard to overturn," he said.

    "It looked like a blade of grass touched the ball, but I'll accept the umpire's decision and I did, and I walked off the field."

    The Thunder skipper and young gun Jason Sangha had consolidated the chase with a 41-run second-wicket partnership after Henry Thornton got the Strikers off to a dream start by removing English import Alex Hales for 9.

    Sangha, the Thunder's top run-scorer of BBL|11, didn't let the Khawaja's dismissal unsettle him as he and Ross continued to chip away at the target.

    Ross (56) then shifted the momentum, taking 14 runs off the 14th over from Thornton to reduce the equation to 62 from 36 balls.

    But just when it looked like the Thunder had edged ahead, the tournament's leading wicket taker Peter Siddle (2-41) claimed the crucial breakthrough as Sangha (61) skied the second ball of the Power Surge to mid-on.

    The veteran seamer removed the dangerous Daniel Sams four balls later before the bit-hitting Cutting gave the Thunder a glimmer of hope with a quickfire 16.

    But it wasn't to be as Conway (2-33) removed both Ross and Cutting in the final over, with Thornton hanging on to a stunning catch even with wicketkeeper Alex Carey bearing down on him.

    Earlier, Carey and Short again got the Strikers off to a flyer as they combined for an opening stand of 41 in the first four overs.

    Short, who continued his stellar season with 39 (28) to move into second spot on the tournament's top run-scorers list, got a life when Sams misjudged a high ball, but the left-armer redeemed himself an over later when he took a blinder running back with the flight to remove Carey for 23 (14).

    Short ran out of luck just after the halfway mark when he was trapped in front by part-time leg-spinner Sangha, and when Travis Head (3) fell shortly after, the Strikers looked to be wobbling at 3-94.

    But Ian Cockbain, the Strikers' late-season recruit from suburban club cricket in southeast Melbourne, smashed Sangha (1-36) for 18 from the 14th over.

    Cockbain (65) found an ally in Jon Wells (18) as they put on 52 for the fourth wicket in quick time, with only four dot balls in a partnership that spanned 4.1 overs.

    The English right-hander crunched three huge sixes, two of which landed 10 rows back, in his 38-ball knock before he tried one too many and ballooned a catch to point off Nathan McAndrew.

    Wells fell an over later as Thomas Kelly and Matthew Renshaw struggled to find the boundary late in the innings with only two fours in the final three-and-a half overs.

    Tanveer Sangha was the standout bowler for the Thunder with 2-15 from his four overs and was the only bowler to concede less than eight an over.

    The Strikers will now travel to Sydney to take on the Sixers on Wednesday night for a spot in the final against the Perth Scorchers at Marvel Stadium on Friday.

    KFC BBL|11 Team of the Tournament announced

    The KFC BBL|11 Team of the Tournament, selected by the head coaches of all eight clubs, has been confirmed.

    The Team of the Tournament is:



    Ben McDermott and Josh Philippe, unanimous selections among the eight coaches, open the batting in the Team of the Tournament. This season, McDermott became the first player in BBL history to hit centuries in consecutive games on his way to 577 runs at 48.08 apiece and leads the BKT Golden Bat count by 109 runs with two games remaining this season. KFC BBL|10 Player of the Tournament Josh Philippe has had another outstanding season for the Sixers, plundering 429 runs and claiming 17 dismissals so far.

    That duo is followed by the powerful quartet of Joe Clarke, Mitchell Marsh, Matt Short and Moises Henriques. Each of Clarke, Short and Henriques have scored over 400 runs for the campaign with 10 half-centuries and 55 sixes between them. Meanwhile Marsh, despite playing just seven matches due to his national commitments, showed the quality that saw him win the player of the match award in the recent ICC Men's T20 World Cup Final, smashing 342 runs at an average of 68.40.

    The team features two further unanimous selections - Adelaide Strikers captain Peter Siddle, who also takes the reins here, and Sydney Thunder's Daniel Sams. Siddle leads the Team of the Tournament after a personal best BBL campaign which sees him on top of the BKT Golden Arm standings with 29 wickets at 17.37 apiece. All-rounder Sams' power with the bat and prowess with the ball were on display again in KFC BBL|11, scoring 191 runs at a strike rate of 161.86 and claiming 19 wickets as well.

    The second, third and fourth-ranked bowlers in the BKT Golden Arm standings make up the attack - Hayden Kerr, Andrew Tye and Rashid Khan. Left-armer Kerr has enjoyed a breakout season for the Sydney Sixers, with his 24 wickets at 13.45 apiece, the best bowling average for any player with 15 or more wickets. Veteran Tye cemented his status as a BBL great, passing the 100 wicket mark in the competition this season, while the highlight of Rashid Khan's 11-game, 20-wicket stint was a brilliant 6-17 against the Brisbane Heat.

    Jason Sangha and Sean Abbott are the X-Factor players in the KFC BBL|11 Team of the Tournament. Sangha forced his way back into Sydney Thunder's side and made the number three position his own with 445 runs in 12 innings, while Abbott became the leading wicket-taker in BBL history during this season, currently sitting on 122 wickets from 92 matches.

    Trent Woodhill, Big Bash Leagues' Player Acquisition and Cricket Consultant, said:

    "This is one of the most exciting Team of the Tournament line ups in BBL history, featuring a combination of World Cup winners, seasoned BBL veterans, breakout stars and history-makers in our competition.

    "The batting line up is packed with power and T20 prowess, while the bowling attack is varied and skillful. This line up has succeeded on our pitches throughout KFC BBL|11, but would be a handful in any conditions around the world.

    "We congratulate all players selected and thank the eight head coaches for their careful consideration in selecting this side."

    Ben McDermott named KFC BBL|11 Player of the Tournament

    Hobart Hurricanes batter Ben McDermott has been named the KFC BBL|11 Player of the Tournament after a record-breaking season opening the batting.

    McDermott became the first player in BBL history to score centuries in consecutive matches, plundering 110 not out against the Adelaide Strikers on December 27 before backing that up 48 hours later with 127 against the Melbourne Renegades.

    In doing so, the 27-year-old became the first player to score three career BBL centuries, narrowly missing out on another when scoring 93 against the Brisbane Heat on January 8.

    The Hurricanes opener ended KFC BBL|11 with 577 runs – the fourth-highest single season tally in BBL history - at 48.08 apiece and a strike rate of 153.86. He currently sits 90 runs clear of Adelaide’s Matt Short in the BKT Golden Bat standings, with Short due to line up in The Challenger at the SCG on Wednesday night.

    McDermott’s prolific season saw him break into the all-time top 10 run-scorer’s list since the competition’s inception, with his cumulative tally now sitting at 2139 runs from 74 games. He also became the fourth player to hit 100 BBL sixes during this season’s final home and away game against the Melbourne Stars.

    His contribution to the Hurricanes’ Finals-bound campaign also stretched into the field, taking the wicket keeping gloves on six occasions for four catches and one stumping. He also claimed another five outfield catches.

    The KFC BBL|11 Player of the Tournament is voted on by match officials at the 56 home and away matches throughout the season. McDermott tallied 25 votes to finish three clear of Melbourne Stars pair Joe Clarke and Glenn Maxwell, who tied for second place with 22 votes each.

    Trent Woodhill, Big Bash Leagues’ Player Acquisition and Cricket Consultant, said:

    “After showing moments of brilliance throughout his BBL career, it was fantastic to see Ben McDermott construct a record-breaking season for the Hurricanes.

    “His move back to the top of the order was a masterstroke and he made the most of his opportunity against the new ball. His power and timing was a delight to watch.

    “It is also pleasing to see a combination of big names and breakout stars in the top 10 of voting. While Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch confirmed their standing as top T20 players, the likes of Matt Short, Tom Rogers and Kurtis Patterson also enjoyed career-best BBL seasons.

    “Congratulations to all players who featured and thanks to our match officials for their work in identifying the Player of the Tournament.”

    This season of the BBL has been an absolute joke. CA were stubborn in their desire to make the tournament go ahead...by hook or by crook. But I don't think that attitude helped in making the tournament worth watching. All the teams had massive COVID cases which effectively put out most of the big names for most of the games. The remaining were were either unavailable or infected as soon as they joined the squad. On top of that you had COVID raging across the country which meant fan attendance was very low.

    The last straw was yesterday though, when Sydney Sixers fielded their assistant coach because they couldn't find anyone else! That's literally something out of a Saturday Night Live sketch I saw last week.

    It honestly shocks me when people compare this league to the PSL. Because it doesn't even come close.

    The culmination of one of the most unusual BBL seasons in the competition's 11-year history comes tonight when the Perth Scorchers and the Sydney Sixers meet under the roof of Melbourne's Marvel Stadium.

    Both clubs are seeking their fourth championship, and the Sixers are chasing an historic three-peat, having defeated the Scorchers in last summer's final.

    This will be the fifth time the clubs have met in the BBL final, and the ledger sits at two wins apiece from their previous meetings that date back to BBL|01.

    When is it?

    Tonight, January 28, from 7.40pm AEDT (4:40pm WST)

    Where is it?

    Marvel Stadium, Melbourne.

    The Scorchers nominated that venue as their 'home' ground for the BBL finals series with the team unable to return to WA due to that state's hard border with the eastern states.

    The Scorchers played just one match at home this summer, their season opener against the Brisbane Heat back on December 8.

    With storms predicted for Melbourne this evening, the roof at Marvel Stadium will be closed.


    Who is playing?

    Much of the build-up has centred around who is not playing: Steve Smith. 'Why not?' is a difficult question to answer.

    Australia's Test vice-captain has played 24 games for the Sixers previously, including in their title-winning sides in BBL|01 and BBL|09. But, given the international commitments he was expected to have this summer, the Sixers did not contract him for this season (as they did Test spinner Nathan Lyon).

    With COVID playing havoc with a number of clubs' lists this season, the league created a central pool of replacement players. Smith could have entered this pool when Australia's ODI series against New Zealand was cancelled, but then any team could have dipped in to snap him up, a situation he was uncomfortable with.

    Attempts to circumvent the pool were blocked after the BBL put that decision to a vote of state CEOs.

    Others 'not playing' for the Sixers tonight include Josh Philippe, who has COVID-19, and Jack and Mickey Edwards, who complete their isolation period for COVID at midnight tonight.

    Jordan Silk is also out due to a hamstring injury, and Daniel Hughes faces a late fitness test on an ankle he injured last week when he tripped over a boundary rope attempting a catch in the warm-ups.

    On the plus side, captain Moises Henriques and retiring veteran Stephen O'Keefe will both play through calf injuries in the decider after being declared fit to play.

    The replacement pool consists of left-hand batters Nick Bertus, Jake Carder and Lachlan Hearne, wicketkeeper-batters Sam Whiteman and Paddy Rowe, right-arm quick Iain Carlisle and left-armer Nick Winter, who could play a role tonight if the depleted Sixers call on them.

    Wicketkeeper Jay Lenton – an assistant coach with the Sixers – was also added to the pool, and he will again keep wicket in place of Philippe.

    For Perth, allrounder Mitch Marsh will play tonight, but it's unclear if he will bowl after he suffered a left hamstring injury while batting last Saturday.

    Cam Bancroft, Matt Kelly and Chris Sabburg have all returned to full training after a stint on the sidelines with COVID-19 and are also in the mix for selection.

    Captain Ashton Turner will play his 100th game for the club, the first Scorcher to achieve the milestone.

    Probable XIs

    Perth Scorchers: Josh Inglis (wk), Kurtis Patterson, Mitch Marsh, Colin Munro (NZ), Ashton Turner (c), Laurie Evans (ENG), Ashton Agar, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Peter Hatzoglou

    Sydney Sixers: Hayden Kerr, Justin Avendano, Daniel Hughes (or Nick Bertus), Moises Henriques (c), Jake Carder, Dan Christian, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Jay Lenton (wk), Nathan Lyon, Steve O'Keefe

    Give me some history

    There's plenty of rivalry between these two teams, and the final is a rematch of last summer's decider won by Sydney.

    Turner admits there's "redemption" on his mind, saying: "They've been the best team for the last couple of years and we can't wait for the opportunity at a little bit of redemption.

    "They were too good for us last year in the big games and we feel like we've taken lessons out of that and come back this year as a better team."

    In anticipation of another blockbuster, let's take a look back at the history of finals between the Scorchers and Sixers.

    BBL|01: Sixers won by seven wickets

    Scorchers 5-156 (Mitch Marsh 77*, Paul Collingwood 32, Brett Lee 2-21) lost to Sixers 3-158 (Moises Henriques 70, Steve O'Keefe 48, Ben Edmondson 2-30)

    It was the Sydney Sixers who claimed the inaugural BBL title, with a young Steve Smith captaining his side to victory and hitting the winning runs with seven balls to spare.

    A 20-year-old Mitch Marsh stuck five boundaries and four sixes in the first innings on his way to 77 not out, while Sixers spearhead Brett Lee took two first-over wickets and a raw Mitchell Starc two crucial late ones to restrict the Scorchers to 156.

    Moises Henriques and now veteran left-arm spinner Steve O'Keefe opened the batting for the Sixers in reply, with their 110-run opening stand largely putting the game to bed, before Smith steered his side home with 22 not out.

    BBL|04: Scorchers won by four wickets

    Sixers 5-147 (Moises Henriques 77, Ryan Carters 35*) lost to Scorchers 6-148 (Shaun Marsh 73, Michael Klinger 33, Brett Lee 3-25)

    In what is perhaps the most memorable game in BBL history, it was the Scorchers who prevailed in a final-ball thriller.

    Brett Lee's final over, the last of his career, lives long in the memory of Australian cricket fans, with the legendary fast bowler falling agonisingly short of the perfect send-off.

    Requiring eight to win off the final over, the Scorchers were all but assured victory after Englishman Michael Carberry ramped the first delivery to the fine leg boundary for four, and then scampered back for two on the next, leaving just two runs needed.

    A single followed to level scores with three balls remaining, only for Lee to crash into the stumps of Nathan Coulter-Nile and Sam Whiteman in the next two balls.

    Lee's well-executed yorker on the last ball could only be squeezed out to short mid-wicket by Yasir Arafat, with the Pakistan fast bowler well short of his ground, but Moises Henriques fumbled the run out chance for a Perth win.

    It was a harsh ending for Henriques who had earlier made sure the Sixers posted a competitive total, with his brilliant 77 coming off just 57 balls.

    But it wasn't to be for the Sixers, as Shaun Marsh's player-of-the-match performance with 73 in the run chase ultimately securing a second consecutive title for the Scorchers.

    BBL|06: Scorchers won by nine wickets

    Sixers 9-141 (Brad Haddin 38, Jhye Richardson 3-30, Tim Bresnan 3-40) lost to Scorchers 1-144 (Michael Klinger 71*, Sam Whiteman 41)

    The Scorchers were utterly dominant in the final of the sixth edition of the BBL, restricting the Sixers to a below-par 141, before veteran Michael Klinger and Sam Whiteman comfortably chased down the target.

    Mitchell Johnson was unplayable in the Sixers' innings, going for just 13 runs off his four runs, while Jhye Richardson announced himself on the domestic stage with his three wickets.

    Klinger and England legend Ian Bell were at the crease when the Scorchers claimed victory, still with 25 balls remaining, as Perth made it three titles in six seasons and three out of the past four at that stage.

    BBL|10: Sixers won by 27 runs

    Sixers 6-188 (James Vince 95, Andrew Tye 2-29) defeated Scorchers 9-161 (Liam Livingstone 45, Cameron Bancroft 30, Ben Dwarshuis 3-37)

    It was all the Sixers in last year's final, with James Vince making a blistering 95 and taking a stunning catch at cover to remove Mitch Marsh, to set-up victory for his side.

    Dan Christian was the only other Sixers batter to reach the 20s, however it was small contributions from all batters alongside Vince's innings that helped them reach 188, an imposing total in a final compared to scores historically posted in the deciding game of the season.

    The Scorchers were well in the chase with Cameron Bancroft and Liam Livingstone at the crease, however after the two openers departed wickets fell at regular intervals as the Sixers claimed a second consecutive title.

    He was keeping wickets for them too.

    Poor guy said he didn't even have his kit when they told him he was playing.

    Came in to bat at No. 9 but didn't face a ball.
