“Mumbai Indians of BBL,” Twitter rejoices as Perth Scorchers beat Sydney Sixers to win their 4th BBL title

Perth Scorchers are the most successful team in the history of BBL

Perth Scorchers beat the Sydney Sixers in the final of Big Bash League (BBL) today to win their 4th title and strengthen their position further as the most successful team of the competition. No team ever has won as many BBL titles as the Scorchers, and they well and truly lived up to their reputation in today’s final as well.

Sydney Sixers didn’t have their strongest team available in the competition because of the COVID and they went into the final as underdogs. However the way the Sixers had played in their previous game, it was expected that they would be able to stretch the Scorchers to their limits and it’s not going to be a walk in the park for the Scorchers. But, the way it turned out, it was a completely one-sided contest.

Perth Scorchers batted first and put on a substantial score of more than 170 on the board, despite the fact that their premier batsman Mitchell Marsh didn’t fire. The English middle-order batsman Laurie Evans played some fantastic shots all around the ground and it was because of his knock of 70 odd that the Scorchers were able to get to a score, which was probably a little bit overpar.

Sydney, in response, never even looked like getting anywhere close to the total. The bowling attack of the Scorchers had a decent bit of international experience. They had the likes of Jhye Richardson who is now one of Australia’s top 5 bowlers in test cricket and Andrew Tye who has not just played a lot of white ball international cricket, but has also played a lot in the IPL as well. Both these bowlers bowled superbly under lights.

Perth Scorchers were overwhelmingly favorites to win the final

The Sixers were bundled out for less than 100 and it ended up as a huge victory for the Scorchers who were overwhelmingly favorites for the trophy anyway. This triumph has, however, been a bit more special for the Scorchers as they didn’t get to play on their home turf because of the strict COVID guidelines in Western Australia.

Despite playing mostly away during the course of their campaign, the Scorchers managed to maintain the standards of their performance and came out triumphant again, 4th time in BBL history.

I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
