T20 Big Bash League, Final

Big Bash League, Final: Perth Scorchers v Sydney Sixers at Perth, Jan 28, 2012


Herschelle Gibbs (Perth Scorchers):

South African Gibbs has scored 302 runs at an average of 50.33, and a strike rate of 152.52 and he is play from his 6 innings, Gibbs has 4 fifties, 41 fours, six sixes and a highest score of 71 (against the Stars in the Semi-Final).

Mitchell Starc (Sydney Sixers):

Starc has taken 11 wickets at an average of 12.36 and a strike rate of 9.5. From his five matches, Starc has an economy rate of 7.77 with best bowling figures of 3/17 and he took 3/28 against the Scorchers in the match at the SCG.

They two players are very important role for play at 37, Gibbs shows no sign of mellowing with age and the South African has belted bowlers across the country in a rather belligerent manner, and has formed a very balanced opening partnership with Marcus North. Once these two get out, though, the Scorchers run rate usually slows significantly in the Sixers can get Gibbs out early, they could restrict the Scorchers to a modest total and fellow veteran Brett Lee is the best man to do it to he still has the ability to rip through any batsman in the world when he gets it right, and it only takes one perfectly aimed yorker to send Gibbs packing.
