Sydney Sixers batsman, Nic Maddinson was dismissed for just a couple by Yasir Arafat during the finals of the Big Bash League against Perth Scorchers at the Manuka Oval in Canberra on Wednesday. Currently, Sixers are 47 for the loss of three after nine overs with Moises Henriques batting on 19 while Jordan Silk makes his way in.

Earlier, Sydney Sixers won the toss and elected to bat first. Perth Scorchers have reached the final of Big Bash League in all three previous occasions. However, Scorchers only won the tournament last year. On the other hand, this will be Sydney Sixers second final after having reached and won in 2011-12. The final will also mark Brett Lee’s last match as the Australian veteran decided to hang up his boots at the end of the season.
