10.45pm The Sydney Sixers finish their season with four successive wins. "Unbelievable run chase," Lyon says. "That's why we got Joe Denly and Maddinson was brilliant. I don't think we bowled very well but hats off to Maxwell. To lose six games on the trot and then winning four is special."

Joe Denly is the Player of the Match for his 72 not out off 45 balls.

jamil: "Currently SS on 4th number in the Points Table :)"

That's a wrap of this game. Goodbye and good night for now

short, wide, outside off, Brathwaite lines it up and clubs it hard but straight into the lap of Maxwell at deep midwicket. Brathwaite nailed it but did not get enough elevation to clear the man in the deep
