Perth's loss continued a frustrating title drought for West Australian cricket, with the State's last silverware coming back in 2003-04 when they beat Queensland in the one-day final.

Man-of-the-match Henriques then cracked 70 off 41 balls and Stephen O'Keefe chipped in with 48 off 46 as the Sixers cruised to 3-158 with seven balls to spare in front of a sell-out crowd of 16,255.

Brett Lee picked up two wickets in the first over of the match.

T20 Big Bash League, Final

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

MEN IN FORM:

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.

Perth Scorchers squad:

TM Beaton, MA Beer, PD Collingwood, NM Coulter-Nile, LM Davis, R Duffield, BM Edmondson, HH Gibbs, GB Hogg, SM Katich, JK Lalor, MR Marsh, MJ North(cap), NJ Rimmington, L Ronchi(wk), CJ Simmons


Sydney Sixers squad:

MC Henriques, SO Henry, B Lee, MJ Lumb, NL McCullum, SCG MacGill, NJ Maddinson, IA Moran, PM Nevill(wk), SNJ O'Keefe, BJ Rohrer, SPD Smith(cap), MA Starc, DJ Thornely, SR Watson

KKR appoint Trevor Bayliss as head coach

The Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday named Trevor Bayliss as the chief coach of their side for the fifth edition of Indian Premier League.

Trevor Bayliss, who coached Sri Lankan Cricket team for four years, guiding them to the finals of World T20 (2009) and ICC World Cup (2011) will replace Dav Whatmore who is tipped to take over as national head coach of the Pakistan side.

"We are pleased to welcome Trevor Bayliss as our chief coach. With his rich experience, very successful track record and knowledge of the conditions in the sub continent, we believe he is the right person to take KKR to the next level of performance," Shah Rukh Khan, principal owner of Kolkata franchise was quoted as saying in a media release.

Bayliss on his part stated, "I have followed the IPL Twenty20 Cricket and KKR's performance and I am honoured to become part of this team, which has already built a reputation as a very popular & professional franchise.

"The team, the support staff, the owners and management are outstanding and I look forward to working with everyone and striving for the highest honours," he further added.

Team's co-owner Jay Mehta feels that the Australian's "personality, his humility and effectiveness will be an ideal combination for KKR."
