Does this stunning performance prove that Binga is too good to retire?
Season four of Australia’s Big Bash did not disappoint!
There was high drama right to the last ball of today’s final between defending champions Perth Scorchers and pink-shirted underdogs Sydney Sixers.
At the centre of the drama was Aussie legend and Sixers yorker-machine Brett Lee, playing in his final match before retiring from professional cricket.
Lee’s first three overs had cost just 17 runs and yielded the wicket of Michael Klinger.
The 38-year-old returned to bowl the 20th, with Perch needing just eight runs to win.
Scorchers batsman Michael Carberry ramped the first delivery for four, with three runs coming off the next two balls. That left the scores tied, meaning Lee needed three dots to force a super over. Here’s how he got on…
Nathan Coulter-Nile is bowled.
So is Sam Whiteman!
Yasir Arafat sneaks a desperate single, as Sixers captain Moises Henriques fumbles a run-out chance that would have set up a super over.
