Thanks for your company right through the competition. Do hang on for all the reactions, analysis and colour from Andrew McGlashan and Alex Malcolm. Hope to see you'll very soon! Take care and goodnight.

Strikers captain Tahlia McGrath: So proud of my team, got a close group, love each other's company. We'll be back bigger and better next year. They've had a great year, beaten us three times now. They thoroughly deserve the championship. Thanks to CA and everyone behind the scenes. Pretty cool playing in front of 15,000 fans."

Marizanne Kapp is the Player of the final "It was a terrible week for me, I was unwell, couldn't get out of bed. I don't think I deserve this, it's a team effort. Credit to the Strikers as well. [Odd] facing off my wife in the final. She knows me so well."

What a moment for Beth Mooney, Sophie Devine and the rest of the crew. This has been a victory well-deserved. They finished top of the league standings to qualify directly into the final, sat and watched the Strikers take the tough route, and on the big night, executed every plan clinically. What a game, what an occasion! Scorchers, who only lost three games all season, are deserving champs.

Mooney: "Know how it feels to be on the losing side. Been enjoying my cricket, to finish it off like that in front of a crowd like this is awesome."

Sophie Devine , who played much of her career with the Sixes, now has a title with the Scorchers.

Alana King: The girls have been unbelievable. The celebrations will kick on for as long as it can go. I'm no cult hero, I love my time in orange. This team means everything to me."

Peschel to Penna, 1 run

Perth Scorchers are the new WBBL champs, ladies and gentlemen! It's their maiden title too. And this has been a superb defence. The last ball is a full ball, almost yorker length, can only be squeezed as far as the cover region.
