BBL 2021-22 – Perth Scorchers surge to 4th title after beating Sydney Sixers in final

Published on

Perth Scorchers won their record 4th BBL title by beating Sydney Sixers in the finals of BBL 2021-22 by 79 runs. After a nervous start when Perth Scorchers were struggling at 25/4, Laurie Evans and skipper Ashton Turner turned the tides in their favour. Evans scored 76* while skipper Turner scored 54 to take Scorchers to 171/6.

Sydney Sixers eventually were bundled out for just 92 runs as Andrew Tye took 3 wickets while Jhye Richardson took 2 wickets. This loss broke the chance for Sydney Sixers to bag their third consecutive title.

Perth Scorchers faced tough times during the BBL 2021-22 as well Sydney Sixers. Scorchers may have notched their sweetest triumph having been on the road for 50 straight days due to being shut out of Western Australia’s closed borders. Sixers faced a depleted squad with openers Josh Philippe and Jack Edwards, ruled out due to COVID-19.

Pert Scorchers captain Ashton Turner highlighted the importance of playing in such tough times and the sacrifices the team had made. He said:

“I think any captain from all eight teams could talk about adversity and obstacles that we’ve had to overcome to get to the end of this tournament and we feel no different. But we’re very fortunate that all of the teams have been so competitive this year. Everyone’s made so many sacrifices.”

“We know that everyone has made sacrifices but we’re so appreciative that everyone was able to come together, we were able to make this tournament happen and get to the end of it.”
