Middle-order batter Laurie Evans smashed an outstanding 76 not out off 41 in a ‘Player of the Match’ performance as Perth Scorchers thrashed Sydney Sixers in the 2021-22 Big Bash League (BBL) final and lifted their fourth title.

Evan walked in to bat when Scorchers were 25/4. He then added a brilliant 104-run partnership for the fifth wicket with skipper Ashton Turner and propelled them to an imposing total of 171/6.

In reply, Sydney Sixers could only manage 92 and lost the contest by a heavy margin of 79 runs. They were bundled out inside 17 overs, with Daniel Hughes (42 off 33) the only batter to cross the thirty-run mark.

Fast bowler Andrew Tye was the pick of the bowlers for Scorchers with 3-15.

“I think any captain would stand here and talk about the obstacles we have had to come through to finish this tournament,” said Turner in the post-match presentation.

“The Sixers have been the best side for the last two years. They taught us how to play on these wickets. Well done for the way you have played before for your performance this season,” he added.
