oh, that's a bouncer down the leg side for a wide! The umpires wait for a few seconds and it's obviously a wide, it's that far down the leg side. Vince looks back at Tye immediately after it goes past him and gives him a blank stare, probably wondering why he did that. At the end, the Sixers are in the final for the second season in a row
10.24pm It's a clinical win for the Sixers, what a season they're having. Vince gets a lot of handshakes and taps on the back from opposition and his team-mates. It's now confirmed that the Sydney Sixers will host the final at the SCG. The Sixers players come out on the field and thank the crowd, they've been on the road this season and will be happy to head to the SCG for the final.
They dominated most parts of the game tonight, right from the first few overs to the entire chase in which Philippe and Vince took on the bowlers from the very first overs. Richardson and Behrendorff leaked runs early which meant the Scorchers didn't have many options to fall back on. It was only the clean hitting of Inglis that gave the Scorchers some hope when they batted, otherwise they had a pretty underwhelming day, including some sloppy fielding. But they have another chance, they'll take on the winner of Brisbane Heat and Sydney Thunder in the Challenger on February 4 at the Optus Stadium. And the Sixers now have a week's break before they play the final. That's all from me, Vishal Dikshit, today. Do tune in again for the match tomorrow, between Heat and Thunder on the same ground at the same time. Goodbye and good luck!
James Vince: We weren't quite sure of the conditions early in the chase. We got a good first over with the bat, a few boundaries. I love batting with him (Philippe), he gets the pressure off me. Ya, two more would have been nice but it's nice to go unbeaten. Only he will know (if the wide was intentional from Tye). A hundred would have been nice but happy to be there and in the grand final. It's amazing for us to get back to SCG after being on the road for so long. We've had some games that were straightforward and some were tight to get over the line.
Prasu: "SS reminding me of TKR in cpl, much stronger in the league than any of their opponents "
Andrew Palmer: ""Big cheer from the crowd". Can you remind us in the UK what a "crowd" is again?" It's something like people sitting in their own houses and watching the TV
Where will he go for the boundary? Tye runs in

through deep cover yet again! Vince slashes at the back of length ball off the back foot, Livingstone goes to his right and gets to the ball but that's gone through him! Sloppy
120kmh, slow and full, Vince has no problem in driving that straight and high down the ground with the mid off in the circle
