Ben Dwarshuis to Nick Larkin. Off cutter back of a length, to leg on the back foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Philippe. Sydney Sixers win the ninth edition of the BBL! They completely dominated in this final. Josh Philippe starred with the bat with a super half century, and once again it was the spinners who did the business with the ball. Unfortunately for the Stars, they just haven't shown up in the final again. Not at the races today, and the Sixers totally deserve the title, which is their second in their history.That is the end of another wonderful year of Big Bash cricket. Superb entertainment throughout. Only another 10 months still it starts all over again.

SIX! Ben Dwarshuis to Nick Larkin. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep point for 6 runs. Too late to clear the rope now. Larkin throws everything at this, and scythes it over point for six.

FOUR! Josh Hazlewood to Nick Larkin. Yorker, middle stump on the front foot Steer, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Hazlewood couldn't do much more with that. A brilliant yorker from the fast bowler, but Larkin squeezes this out superbly. Opened the face, and squirted it to the third man fence.

FOUR! Sean Abbott to Nathan Coulter-Nile. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled past fine leg for 4 runs. Swings hard, and gets a bit of luck. Off the edge of the bat, and the ball flies over the keeper then trickles into the rope.

OUT! Caught. Steve O'Keefe to Seb Gotch. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Abbott. The Stars are crumbling in a final yet again. Gotch stretches out wide and tries to drag this over mid wicket. He doesn't get any of it. Mis-hit straight down the throat of the fielder, who makes no mistake. The Sixers are charging to victory at the SCG.
