Perth Scorchers win BBL for third time

Adam Voges-led Perth Scorchers came out victorious in the final of the sixth edition of Big Bash League against Sydney Sixers at the Furnace on Saturday.


Put into bat, Sixers scored 141 losing nine wickets in 20 overs. Wicketkeeper-batsman Brad Haddin top-scored with his 38 from 25 balls. The right-handed batsman hit six boundaries — four 4s and two 6s.

Scorchers’ Jhye Richardson and Tim Bresnan took three wickets apiece, conceding 30 and 40 runs respectively. Richardson was awarded Man-of-the-Match.


Scorchers went into the contest without the services of Shaun Marsh, who is with the Australian side for the three ODIs against New Zealand starting January 30, but Michael Klinger’s 49-ball 71 made up for his absence.


Scorchers, hosts of the final, finished the match with 25 balls to spare with nine wickets in hands.
