Eventful final over it is… Nic Maddinson hits two boundaries off Nathan Coulter-Nile but he is run out for 36. Sydney needed six runs off the final ball and Brett Lee misses out on a big hit. Perth Scorchers win by five runs via D/L Method.
OUT! N Maddinson 36(16)
Successful over from Pat Cummins as three wickets fell in it. Sean Abbott was run-out while Mark Cosgrove was caught behind off the first ball he faced. Cummins had the las laugh as he got Daniel Smith caught behind after being hit for a boundary. 17 runs needed off final over.
OUT! S Abbott 1(3), M Cosgrove 0(1), D Smith 4(2)
Nic Maddinson is leading Sydney’s reply here. After hitting a boundary off the last ball of the previous over, he smashes veteran spinner Brad Hogg for a boundary and a six. Good over for the Sixers as they collected 17 off it, and need 24 to win off the final two overs.
Sydney Sixers crumbling under pressure? They have lost two wickets in the over. Jason Beherendorff gets rid of Michael Lumb and Ravi Bopara, as both the batsmen went for their strokes.
OUT! M Lumb 1(6), R Bopara 0(1)
Good start by the Perth Scorchers as only eight runs are scored in the first over. Sydney need 46 runs from 24 balls.

Target has been revised to 54 runs off five overs

Start of play delayed due to rain.


READ the innings report here

What an innings from Craig Simmons! The left-hander is run out in the final over of the game. He smashed a whopping 11 sixes and four boundaries in that innings that propelled Perth Scorchers to a huge total.
OUT! C Simmons 112(58)
SImmons gets to his second century of the Big Bash League! He has been in terrific form this season and continues it in the semi-final of the tournament. Starc has some success as Mitchell Marsh falls on the last ball.
OUT! M Marsh 3(4)
Simmons is on a carnage at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG)! So far he has hit 10 sixes, two of which came in the 18th over off Hazlewood.
Mitchell Starc gets his man! The left-arm bowler comes around the wicket and cleans up Adam Voges for 31. Good over for the Sydney Sixers as only four runs were scored off it.
OUT! A Voges 31(24)
Simmons is going all guns blazing against the Sydney Sixers! The left-handed opener smashes two sixes and as many boundaries as Perth add another 23 runs to their total. This was a very expensive over from Sean Abbott.
Brett Lee comes back into the attack searching for a wicket, but is punished second ball for keeping it full, as Voges gets a boundary. Another good over for the Perth Scorchers as they add 10 runs in it.
Half-century for Craig Simmons! The left-handed batsman has brought up the fifty with the help of as many as five sixes and one boundary.
Simmons slams Bopara for a six as Perth reach the 100-run mark in the 13th over of the match. The left-handed batsman has picked up quite well after a sluggish start early on.
Simmons continues the good work for his side as he punishes Hazlewood for dropping one short, lifting it over the backward square leg boundary for a six. Early on in the over, the Sydney bowler was smashed for a boundary. 17 runs come off that over.
Perth Scorchers batsmen scramble for five runs off Ravi Bopara’s second over of the game.
Simmons gets into the groove with a huge six over the midwicket region off Sean Abbott. 12 runs scored off the 10th over of the game.
Brett Lee gets the second wicket! The right-arm pacer drops one short as Sam Whiteman tries to hit a six. But Sean Abbott was quick to move and takes a sharp catch. Perth stuttering against the Sydney Sixers. Adam Voges walks in.
OUT! S Whiteman 9(11)
Sam Whiteman takes three runs off the first ball and Simmons clear the field for a six as Perth add 13 runs from that over. Perth will be looking to build on the momentum as they have lost their way a little bit after the dismissal of captain Simon Katich early in the innings.
Very impressive comeback by Ravi Bopara after dropping that catch earlier. The right-handed medium pacer gives away only three runs. Perth will be looking to pick up as they have scored only eight runs in the last three overs.
Trent Copeland comes into the attack. Only three runs scored off the sixth over of the match.
There’s the first wicket! Katich tries to clear the third man boundary but finds Brett Lee near the ropes. Hazlewood continues to be impressive as he provides his side the first breakthrough, importantly of Katich, who was scoring quickly.
OUT! S Katich 26(21)
Simon Katich takes the attack to the opposition as he slams three boundaries and a six off Starc to provide his side some much-needed momentum. The veteran left-handed batsman hits couple of strokes in air to get some quick runs. However, there was an appeal for leg-before which looked close. It was turned down.
Josh Hazlewood starts off on an impressive note as he doesn’t allow the Perth batsmen to score few quick runs. Only four runs scored off the third over of the game.
Dropped! Simon Katich is given a lifeline as Ravi Bopara drops a simple catch at covers off Mitchell Starc. This was after Katich started the proceedings for Perth Scorchers with a boundary over the cover region.
Brett Lee starts with a wide in the final of the tournament, but recovers well to give away only two more runs in the over.

Sydney Sixers captain Marcus North won the toss and elected to field against Perth Scorchers in the second semi-final match of the Big Bash League 2014 at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Wednesday.
