Last season’s finalists Perth Scorchers will have a chance to avenge their defeat when they take on Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League 2021-22 final at the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne on Friday, January 28. The match will begin from 2:10 PM IST.
The Scorchers have been one of the most exciting teams in BBL 2021-22. They finished the group stage at the top of the table with an impressive 40 points, winning 11 of their 14 games before going on to beat Sydney Sixers in the qualifier to book a place in the final.
The collective effort from the Scorchers team was quite evident right from the start as they won their first six matches. Sydney Sixers, on the other hand, had to take a longer route before qualifying for the final.
After losing out to Perth Scorchers in the qualifier, the Sixers had to play Adelaide Strikers in the challenger round, where Hayden Kerr scored an unbeaten 58-ball 98 to help his team to a four-wicket win in the absence of Josh Philippe, who’s been ruled out for the finals due to testing positive for Covid-19.
