Colin Munro – The Flying Kiwi

One of the best T20 batsmen, Colin Munro has been Perth Scorchers best batsman this season. In fact, the best across all seasons. Though he wasn’t as fluent as he was in his earlier outings, Munro scored 25-ball 30 runs to help Scorchers gain some momentum after the early exit of Jason Roy in the third over. 

En route his 30, he surpassed the record set by Liam Livingstone in 2019/20. His 441 runs this season are the highest for a Scorchers batsman in a BBL season. Livingstone scored 425 runs last season.

Josh Inglis registers his third-highest score in BBL

Scorchers have been one of those teams who have multiple winners in their set up. If Munro fails, Livingstone stands up, if the latter fails Inglis in the middle-order has been rock solid for them. In this season he has scored 391 runs, which is his personal best across seasons of BBL. In today’s match, coming in at a difficult situation – 39/2 in the sixth over – Inglis, firstly put on 42 with Munro, out of which, he did the majority of the scoring (30). Later, in a 59-run partnership with Ashton Turner, he scored 22 runs at a strike rate of 183. With the help of his unbeaten 69, Scorchers were able to post 167 runs on the board. This was his third-highest score in BBL. 

Josh Philippe’s dream season continues

When a batsman scores big in back-to-back seasons, it leaves an impression on how consistent he has been. Josh Philippe has done something similar. On the back of a sensational 2019/20 Big Bash season, Philippe continued to score confidently and freely even this season. Last season, he scored 487 runs, the most for a Sixers batsman in a season.

 This season, he fell one short of 500 runs. Hence, Philippe went past his own feat from last season to set a new record. In BBL 2020/21, Alex Hales tops the charts with 535 runs, closely followed by Philippe at 499.

Highest individual score for Sydney Sixers

A special match needs a special performance and James Vince delivered it for Sixers in the qualifiers. Chasing an average total of 168, Sixers were off to a flyer, thanks to a 92-run opening stand between Philippe and Vince. But, it was Vince who took it further. He was also helped by some lackluster fielding from the Scorchers as they dropped him twice. 

With 14 fours and one six, Vince registered his personal best BBL score (98*). With two required for his century and one for a win, Andrew Tye finished it off with a wide, denying a century. This meant, Sixers still do not have a centurion from their team across the 10 seasons. Still, his score is the highest for Sixers in BBL. 

Jordan Silk – Safe as a house

A contribution from a player is just not subjected to bat or ball, fielding is also one of the aspects. When Sixers are playing, it seems as if Jordan Silk attracts the ball towards him. Why not? After all, he is one of the best fielders and is stationed at the most happening fielding spots. Silk has taken 15 catches this season at a catching efficiency of 88.2%. Those 15 catches are the second most a fielder has taken in a season of BBL. With one more match to go, Silk has the opportunity to go past Glenn Maxwell’s record of 16 in 2018/19.
