Craig Simmons-charged Perth Scorchers blasted the Sixers attack to raise 193 for the loss of five wickets in their quota of 20 overs in the first innings. Simon Katich and Adam played useful cameos to propel Scorchers to a huge score.

 

The Sixers bowling was unable to find any sort of cohesive rhythm and were carted around the park with utter disdain.

 

Rain halted the start of the Sydney innings and the Duckworth/Lewis rules meant that  only five overs of play was going to played with Sixers needing 54 of five overs.

 

Both the teams and the crowd witnessed a 30-minute break, and when the umpires felt they were good to go for the second time in the match, the Scorchers were shocked.

 

But their bowlers rose to the occasion, and tied the Sixers batsmen in a web of wonderfully planned bowling. The Sixers batsmen could’t really connect, and kept losing their batsmen at regular intervals.

 

The Sixers ultimately required 17 off the last over, but could manage only 12. Nic Maddinson hit a couple of boundaries, but fell to a suicidal run-out which turned the tide firmly in Scorchers’ favour.

 

It ultimately seemed fitting that the Scorchers won the tie, after one felt that the D/L method would strip them of a fair chance.
