The Big Bash ended with a bang last night.
Four time finalists Perth Scorchers sealed a thrilling four wicket victory over a determined Sydney Sixers outfit.
The Scorchers triumph in Manuka yesterday made them back-to-back Big Bash finals winners.
It was a bitter sweet end to former Australian pace bowler Brett Lee’s cricketing career. The Sixers’ star bowled his final over, ever and almost came up with a hat-trick that would’ve seen the Sydney side claim the win on the very last ball of the match.
Instead, right-handed Pakistani batman Yasir Arafat managed to scrape together the single run needed off the final toss to steer the Scorchers to victory.
Scorchers’ hero Shaun Marsh was declared man of the match.
Here are some memorable highlights from last night’s closely-fought competition.
