The Final of BBL 2020-21 will be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground, played between Sydney Sixers and Perth Scorchers. The match will be kicked off on 6th February (Saturday) at 14:40 (GMT+6).
The rivalry between the Sydney Sixers and Perth Scorchers began in the very 1st edition of the Big Bash League, with these two top-quality sides met in the final. Since then, both of the teams have met in the final on two more occasions. While Sydney Sixers won the 1st edition of this competition, the Perth Scorchers came out victorious in the final of the last few meetings.
The stage is now all set for another Sixers-Scorchers clash in the BBL final, as these two teams have made it to the final very deservedly. Sydney Sixers and Perth Scorchers occupied the 1st and 2nd positions respectively in the group phase. While Sydney Sixers got the better of the men of Ashton Turner in the Qualifier, the men in orange performed excellently in their last match. Overall, BBL fans couldn’t have asked for a better lineup of the grand showdown.
This section is what the supporters will worry about the most. According to the weather forecast, a thunderstorm is on the cards tomorrow. The temperature will stay around 23 Degrees Celsius.
For the batsmen, the Sydney Cricket Ground is a happy hunting ground, as scoring over 180 should not be a too big challenge here. To succeed, the bowlers will need to get their line and length correct.
