The Sydney Sixers have won the 2021 Big Bash in Australia.
The Sydney Sixers beat Perth Scorchers in the final to defend their Big Bash crown.
English batsman James Vince was the star. He propelled the hosts to 188-6 in their 20 overs. Vince made 98 not out and was denied a century when Andrew Tye bowled a wide to concede the winning run.
Though his England team-mate Liam Livingstone made 45, the Scorchers were rarely in the chase, ending on 161-9.
The Sixers’ 27-run victory at the Sydney Cricket Ground gives them a third title, level with the Scorchers.
Between them, the Sixers and the Scorchers have won six of the 10 editions on the men’s BBL, with both teams beating each other in two finals.
