As Scorchers bowler Peter Hatzoglou comes in an attack to dismiss Justin Avendano for 1 (4), putting the Sixers in serious trouble and diminishing their chances of winning the match. After losing a few wickets in quick succession, no Sixers batsmen could find a way to build crucial wicket-to-wicket partnerships.

The Sixers’ confidence was not shattered, until their aggressive batsman Daniel Hughes 42 (33), who walked swiftly for a run-out. And then, Andrew Tye walks in once again to collapse the batting order and dominates the show by sacking Sean Abbott 1 (9) and Ben Dwarshuis 0 (2). Richardson picks Nathan Lyon 3 (3) and Steve OKeefe 2 (5) to turn the course of the game towards the Scorchers and finishes the match in just 16.2 overs. And that made a clinical win by 79-runs for the Perth Scorchers to lift their 4th BBL title in the 11th season against the defending champions Sydney Sixers.
