Yep - all of the Olympics Redevelopments are up in the air so I’m told
Wow really surprised. Thought it might have been the money going into the alternatives which is a consequence of the redevelopment of course. Watch this space.

Dwarshuis with 4. He's one of those eternal BBL names who'll never play for Australia but has his fair share of days out in the sun in front of a good crowd.

Pretty sure he played in the recent tour of India (just after the World Cup)

The smartest team won - in both facets - they adapted to the conditions better
 
Think Brisbane were crazy to opt to chase.
With their weakened battling up, they would've been better off trying to set a target.

Especially in a final.
Get them on the board.

Dwarshius has already played for Australia, and with his 5 wickets tonight now sits 4th all time for wickets in the BBL. Should be more highly rated by some the less knowledgable on this forum.

Don't follow white ball cricket outside the World Cups so happy to stand corrected.
Ponting has always spoken well of him over the years.
 
Although Moises Henriques was not chosen the Player of the Match neither in Perth nor in GC, he was truly the most valuable batsman and captain for the Sixers in their last two wins.

Sixers peaking at the right time by not having an over reliance on International players (compared to Brisbane and Perth)?

Sixers just have more depth, Vince and Curren are still big losses.. comparable to Heats losses of Munro and Billings.
 
Heat need a revamp of there batting order, Brown is rubbish, get rid of him..
Exactly. They also needed to replace a bowler with a Batsmen, probably Kuhneman.
I would try Nesser up the order, perhaps opening in place of Brown.
Can they sign somebody like how Perth signed Marcus Harris.

TBF, Sydney have Vince and Curran compared to Crawley and Evans. I won't include Eskers.

The big difference is Scorchers have lost Richardson and Turner to injuries. I think Kelly might be injured as well.

Like the Heat, you can normally replace 1 or 2 players, but 4 makes it really tough.

The only Sixer in the top 10 for runs this BBL season is Vince at #9 with 244 @ 30.5, and before last night they didn't have a wickettaker in the top 10, yet somehow they are the first team into the BBL final. They may not be a team of superstars, but they do the three facets of the game extremely well, they have great depth and no obvious weak links.

They are Captained exceptionally well - for the cricket purist - last night was as good a Captain’s game as you ever want to see - he read the game brilliantly with the bat then pulled the right levers to get them over the line with the ball on what was an ordinary pitch
