That's all from this game! Brilliant innings from Josh Philippe sees Sydney Sixers start BBL 09 with a bang while Perth Scorchers have a lot of thinking to do before their next game. On 19th December, another exciting game awaits us as Melbourne Renegades host Sydney Thunder. Join us for that at 1910 Local (0810 GMT). Until then, cheers.

Josh Philippe is the Man of the Match for his brilliant innings of 81 runs. On being asked about his batting, he says that he loves to open the innings and enjoys going behind the bowlers early on in the innings. On being asked about their approach in the tournament, he says that they still consider themselves as underdogs and they have kept the same squad as of last year. He further adds that he just looks to keep doing good for the team and the results come by. On being asked about the next game he says that he is eager to play at Alice springs with 40 degrees heat.

Perth Scorchers needed early wickets but were unable to do so. The pitch eased out in the second innings and the bowlers were not upto the mark to have any chance in the match. In the end, Sydney Sixers won the match with 5 overs to go. The visitors need to play better in the coming games and get their issues sorted. Firstly they need to sort out their batting. They made a mess at the start and then it was always a catching up game for them. The hosts, on the other hand, have made easy work in this chase and have little issues to sort out going forward.

A hammering! That's what we can call that from the Sydney Sixers. They have made light work of the Scorchers and have started the tournament with a bang. Josh Philippe came out with intent and scored a brilliant 81 to finish off the match there and then. They were batting on a different wicket altogether as when the visitors were batting, it looked like it is a difficult wicket to bat on but it was not to be. 58 runs came off the Powerplay and that's when the match was over. It was a difficult task for the Perth Scorchers to make a comeback from Scorchers and they were not able to deal with the pressure.
