Sixers struggled to chase the target with 3-wickets in hand, and their batting order finally collapsed as they had no means to deal with the Scorchers bowlers. Andrew Tye includes 2 wickets in the shape of Hayden Kerr 22 (18) and Nathan Lyon 2 (2). As the Sixers’ prospects of reaching the Finals faded, they were unable to survive till the 20 overs. Ben Dwarshuis 66 (29) seemed to be the only batsman who stood strong for Sixers to some extent but fell short for Hatzoglou to hand over a clinical win for the Scorchers. The Scorchers clearly having a great day, as they batted aggressively and bowled consistently.

As a result, the Sixers were unable to tackle the Scorchers’ tactics and experienced a defeat in the Qualifiers, allowing the Scorchers to progress to the Finals. Furthermore, Sydney Sixers will now have another chance to advance to the finals, if they win the challengers.

Perth Scorchers Innings 189-3 (20 Overs)
