he's missed it! Henriques, the man who lugged Sixers with a brilliant half-century, has fumbled a simple run-out chance! Scorchers sneak through! They've defended their BBL crown! Everyone had come up inside the circle, three short covers, a silly mid-on even. The ball was full and straight again, Arafat went for a flick and found midwicket. The batsmen set off right away for a suicidal single. Henriques got a lovely bounce, but he could not grasp the ball in his hands! Lee is on his knees, head in hands. What a way to bow out of cricket!
Perth Scorchers are the 2014/15 winners of the Big Bash League. A tense finish to the final, all happening in the last few overs of the match. A wonderful treat for the fans, thanks for tuning in.
