BBL 06: Twitter Reacts As Sydney Sixers Thrash Perth Scorchers By Six Wickets
Sydney Sixers registered a comprehensive six-wicket victory over Perth Scorchers to bounce back from the humiliating defeat they suffered against Hobart Hurricanes before Christmas.
Chasing a relatively easy target of 131, Sam Billings and Brad Haddin made a fine start by adding 35 runs for the first wicket before the former Australian wicket-keeper was dismissed by Andrew Tye. 16 runs later, Billings was sent packing by William Somerville but his dismissal did not derail the chase as the next batsmen chipped in with useful knocks to take the Sixers home with two overs remaining. Johan Botha was the highest scorer for the Sydney outfit with 30 runs from 19 balls.
Earlier, none of the Scorchers batsmen could convert their start into a big score and as a result, their innings never got the impetus to get a big total. The Perth-based outfit kept on losing wickets at regular intervals as their innings eventually ended for 130 for 8 in 20 overs. Mitchell Marsh top-scorer for them with 31 runs from 29 balls.

At 37, he's still so effective with Botha bat and ball.

The better team on paper lost would have won if fielded first with their long batting line up and dew.?
