Thanks for joining us for the final. Please do join for the BBL final in a while. Till then stock up on popcorn and whatever you would want to enjoy the match with. Good day from all of us here

Perry: Really proud of the girls. It was probably the best game we played this season. We do enjoy this couple of months thoroughly. We are forming a good rivalry (v Perth Scorchers). They didn't have a good day today

Villani: Sixers bowled well and it was extremely to difficult to score at times. Thank the girls for an amazing ride.

Sarah Coyte is the Player of the Match for bowling well. Her figures read 4-0-17-3

Sydney Sixers win the WBBL for the second time and both the times Perth Scorchers were the runner-up. The slow start by Perth Scorchers openers and their dismissals in quick succession meant Sydney Sixers were looking at a small total to chase, but they didn't expect to be chasing just 100 runs to retain the title
