Thanks for following our live coverage of the KFC T20 BBL 04 Final, in what turned out to be a classic finish. On behalf of Bronwyn Calver and myself Glenn Davey, goodnight!
Perth Scorchers 6/148 off 20 overs (Marsh 73 Klinger 33 Lee 3/25 Lyon 2/34) defeated Sydney Sixers 5/147 off 20 overs (Henriques 77 Carters 35* Behrendorff 1/19) by four wickets. Crowd 11,741. MOTM - Shaun Marsh (PRS).
Perth Scorchers win by four wickets, clinching their second BBL title, after playing in all four finals. Sydney Sixers are runners up, but can look forward to the Champions League later in the year.
Shaun Marsh has been named Player of the Match. Jason Behrendorff has been announced the KFC Young Gun of BBL 04. Jacques Kallis from the Sydney Thunder has been awarded the Player of the Series.
The turning point came at the start of the 18th over, when only three fielders were inside the circle. When a wide came off the free hit, followed by a six off the secondary free hit, 10 runs had been scored from the first ball and the pressure was eased
Perth Scorchers always had plenty of wickets in hand during their run chase, but the run rate required was starting to get out of hand.
