The pressure of a big final can get to the most experienced of players, let alone the newbies, but young pacer Jhye Richardson proved he has got nerves of steel. He bowled the fourth over of the innings where he was hit for a six by Henriques.

However, he returned to the attack in the 10th over to derail the Sixers’ innings with the wicket of Brad Haddin, followed by those of Henriques and Silk in the 12th to reduce them to 80 for 6 from being 74 for three not too long ago.

He finished with super-impressive figures of 3 for 30 off his four overs and was the chief architect of the Scorchers’ win in this final. Quite deservingly, he was named the man of the match too.
