that's it. A first pump from Botha. A short delivery on middle and leg sits up for Botha to pummel through backward square leg
10.02pm A game where the Scorchers were always behind since the start. They started slowly with the bat and were always playing catch-up. The Sixers bowlers set the game up with a clinical performance, limiting a strong Scorchers batting line-up to just 130. The Sixers began well in the chase, and stayed ahead till the end. A win they can be proud of.
That's it from all of us here from game seven. We'll be back again tomorrow for Brisbane Heat v Sydney Thunder. See you soon.
more runs. Short delivery down leg, helped along to fine leg. Sixers three away
tip and run towards extra cover, good stuff
low full toss on middle and leg, 144 ks. Pushed to mid-on. Astute batting
and that should be the game. Another slower ball, this one pitches, but right in Botha's slot. He lifts his elbow and lifts the ball straight over mid-off. Lands over the boundary.
a slower loopy full toss outside off, 102 ks. Botha watches the ball and hammers a drive between cover and mid-off. Good idea, poor execution
poor stroke, considering it was Tye's last ball. On the pads, the knuckle ball. Silk was beaten for pace and misses his swing into the leg side. Ricochets onto leg stumps via the pad
128 kph, slower ball, heaved into the leg side, on the bounce to deep square leg
good bumper. 121 kph, hustled Botha for pace who had to bail out of the stroke
full toss on off, pushed to mid-on's left for one
Five in the circle
124 kph, yet another slower ball. Cut to backward point. Lands just in front of Marsh
pulled towards backward square leg for a couple
slower and straighter, no matter as Silk cuts to deep point for a single
driven to deep cover from the crease. One more
clipped to midwicket with soft hands, calls for two, gets it
sees Botha coming and fires it wide outside off, hit to point
on the pads, worked to square leg
Botha gets low and executes a fine paddle sweep for three to third man. Very well played
another non-existent run. Fullish around off, pushed to short cover. The bowler hares after it and misses the stumps at the batsman's end in his follow-through. Would have been out too
shovelled to short midwicket for a tough run. The fielder misses the stumps. No need for that run. Out by a distance if he hit, Turner the man
