  • Perth Scorchers have been largely faultless across BBL 11 so far this season having finished top of the league table with 11 wins from 14, before comfortably overcoming Sydney Sixers in the Qualifier by 48 runs, therefore booking their safe passage into the final.
  • All-rounder Mitchell Marsh is a doubt with a hamstring problem, however Scorchers coach Adam Voges is confident of the Australian international’s involvement provided he comes through the team’s final training session unscathed.


  • Champion teams find a way to win even when the odds are firmly stacked against them, which is exactly what Sydney Sixers did this past Wednesday as they ended Adelaide Strikers’ five-match streak, beating them by four wickets in the challenger to take their place in the final, where they bid to now make history and win a third consecutive BBL title.
  • Following the bombshell of wicketkeeper-batter Josh Philippe’s positive Covid-19 test that ruled him out of the Challenger and will also see him miss the final, all-rounder Jordan Silk was forced to retire injured against the Strikers and isn’t expected to recover in time to play, both will be massive losses for the Sixers here.


The retractable roof at Marvel Stadium will be worth its weight in gold, ensuring that the BBL 11 final between Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers will not be disrupted despite the miserable weather expected during the scheduled hours of play. Considering how well they have played across the tournament so far, there is no doubt that Perth Scorchers will be extremely confident of adding a fourth BBL trophy to their cabinet here considering that they have already beaten Sydney Sixers three times this season. However, when it comes to BBL finals in the last couple of years, Moises Henriques’ side have always come up trumps, winning the last two and now they stand on the verge of a historic three-peat. The recent experiences of the Sixers at this stage of the competition will stand them in good stead, but the loss of key players such as Philippe and Silk cannot be underestimated.

Perth Scorchers contain by far the most destructive top order of the entire tournament and a top four of Josh Inglis, Kurtis Patterson, Mitchell Marsh and Colin Munro will be extremely difficult for the Sixers to reign in. This is combined with a well-balanced Scorchers bowling attack full of experience, variations and spin. They have proven to be the best side across the entire competition from the start, all the way to this stage and the expectation is that Perth Scorchers will be able to take that final step, beat Sydney Sixers one more time and lift their fourth BBL title.
