“We’d like to congratulate the Sydney Sixers on earning the right to host their second consecutive KFC BBL Final, which we’re delighted to confirm will be held at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

“This is a major reward for fans of the Sydney Sixers, who haven’t been able to get to the SCG and see their team play so far in KFC BBL|10. We look forward to welcoming a big crowd to the SCG next Saturday night for a fitting end to our tenth season of Big Bash.

“Tonight’s result means the Perth Scorchers will host either Sydney Thunder or Brisbane Heat at Optus Stadium next Thursday, with the winner returning to Sydney to face the Sixers. Thanks again to all four remaining teams for their ongoing flexibility and understanding as we navigate this complex season.”
