    3.3 this is not a highlights package I can assure you! Yet another soft dismissal, tossed up and Petersen gets forward and gets an outside edge to first slip 9/4
    0.4 at the edge of the boundary! Tossed up from round the wicket, Bodi gets on his knee and slogs him this time, it's miles in the air and heading over the deep square leg rope but Rohrer cups it just a few inches in front of it 7/1
    2.2 excellent catch by O'Keefe! It was fuller from Hazlewood and de Kock went for the big hit to the leg side and managed a top edge that swirled towards third man, O'Keefe sprinted to his right and timed his dive well and plucked it inches from the turf 8/2
    2.6 top order wobble for the Lions and it's the Big Fish McKenzie! Another soft dismissal, fuller delivery and McKenzie tries to loft that over the on side and gets a tame top edge, Rohrer takes his second catch 8/3
    6.6 half the side's gone! McCullum fired that quick and flat from round the wicket, Tanvir was forward but not quick enough to cover the line, hit on the front pad and the umpire was convinced 32/5
    18.2 Symes' fighting knock comes to an end! Fuller one outside off and he goes for the big slog and gets a top edge, Haddin runs forward and takes it 112/8
    13.3 McCullum gets three! Pushed through flat outside off, Tsolekile gets on his knee and tries to slog fetching it from outside off, hits it flat and quick to O'Keefe at short midwicket 73/6
    17.5 direct hit and Pretorius was ball-watching! Slapped down to backward point and Symes had set off for the run, Rohrer takes aim at the bowler's end and knocks down the stumps, Pretorius was watching the fielder and didn't even ground his bat 111/7
    19.6 and they're all out! Morris pulls this one down to deep square leg, mistimed and it drops short of the fielder, attempts a second run, flat throw by Henriques to Haddin and Morris was well short despite the dive 121/10
    19.5 easy one for Hazlewood, angles this one from wide of the crease from round the wicket, plays a short arm pull but it swirls down to fine leg 120/9

Match Notes

  • Sydney Sixers were flawless champions

    There were almost no flaws in Sydney Sixers' victorious campaign. Brad Haddin had rich resources at his disposal and he managed them astutely

  • How the Lions whimpered

    A packed Wanderers had to watch their team lose disappointingly, that too to an Aussie side!

  • A big day cut short

    The sell-out Johannesburg crowd anticipated a special day, seen in the buzz around the stadium, showing the tournament wasn't meaningless. But Lions' lacklustre show killed it

  • Title win was no fluke - Haddin

    Brad Haddin has said the Sydney Sixers' comprehensive ten-wicket-win in the Champions League final was no fluke, and that they had been preparing for the big game for over two weeks

  • 'Our worst game' - Petersen

    Lions captain Alviro Petersen summed up their showing in the CLT20 final by saying it was their worst game of the tournament
