BBL 06: Twitter Reacts As Sydney Sixers Beat Brisbane Heat In Super Over To Qualify For Final

Sydney Sixers defeated Brisbane Heat in the super over to qualify for the finals. Moises Henriques hit two sixes and a four in the super over to help his team score 22 runs. In reply, the Heat could score only 14.

Earlier, chasing 168 to qualify for the final, the Sixers began in poor fashion as Nic Maddinson was sent back by Joe Burns in the very first over. A quickfire knock from Colin Munro (23 from 11) helped the Sixers settle down their nerves before a 99-run stand between Daniel Hughes (46) and captain Moises Henriques (64) laid the platform for a comfortable chase. However, the Heat clawed their way back into the match by taking four wickets inside 12 runs as from 133 for 2, the Sydney-based outfit was reduced to 145 for 7. Needing six off the final over, the Sixers could score only five to let the super over decide the outcome of the match.

Before that, none of the Heat batsmen could post a big score and consequently, their innings never got the required impetus to get to a good total. Australian spin spearhead Nathan Lyon was the destructor-in-chief by taking four wickets for only 23 runs from his four overs. He was ably supported by the in-form Sean Abbott who too took 4 wickets but conceded 40 runs in his full quota of overs. At 109 for 5 in the 15th over, Brendon McCullum’s side was staring down the barrel before a 51-run partnership off only 26 balls between Marnus Labuschagne and Jack Wildermuth took them over 150-run mark.

Sydney Sixers will take on Perth Scorchers in the final.

But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
