THE Sydney Sixers have confirmed their position as the most dominant team in WBBL history with an emphatic nine-wicket win over Perth Scorchers in Adelaide.
They applied the pressure early in the match, restricting Perth's run-scoring, and made quick work of the 100 needed for victory with a classy performance with the bat.
The Sixers lost just the one wicket as they kept the runs flowing with 14 boundaries delivered steadily throughout to have it wrapped by the end of the 15th over.
Sydney's experienced top order showed no signs of faltering, but even though they boast the Big Bash's top runscorer in Ellyse Perry and the likes of Alyssa Healy and Ashleigh Gardner, it was again their bowlers who did the damage.
Sarah Coyte had the first breakthrough just after the powerplay when the dangerous Elyse Villani was stumped on just 16 and the rot set in from there.
Having won the toss and elected to bat, it may have been a decision Villani was quickly regretting.
The Scorchers lost a wicket the next three overs to be at 4/42 by midway through the innings.
Two more to Coyte in the 15th over put Perth further on the back foot, leaving them at 6/66 and helping her to figures of 3/17 for the innings and the player of the match title.
The Sixers' scoreboard couldn't have looked more different with the bat.
Healy led the charge early making 41 off 32, including five fours and a six, which was more than the Scorchers managed between them and was the foundation of a knock that banished any thought that a similar collapse could occur.
When Healy departed in the 11th over, Perry (36) and Gardner (22) took over and steered the side to victory by the last ball of the 15th over.
It was a fitting finish for captain Perry, who missed last year's final with a hamstring injury. who struck two fours off the final two balls to give the Sixers what they need to hoist the trophy.
Perry said the Sixers had saved the best for last, while the Scorchers didn't play to how their season had been.
"That's probably one of the best games of cricket we've played all season so to be able to turn up on the most important day and put that together was nice. Massive contributions across the squad, which is awesome," Perry said.
"We are forming a good rivalry with them (Scorchers).
"It was unfortunate for them today, they probably didn't put the performance they wanted to but they've had a wonderful season, got some incredible players, players that have achieved things across cricket around the world."
Perth nine bat Piepa Cleary top-scored for Perth with 18 and a 23-run partnership at the top between Elyse Villani (16) and Nicole Bolton (5) their best.
