Cricket News: “Mumbai Indians of the BBL” – Twitter reactions as Scorchers win FIFTH Title | Twitter reactions: Perth Scorchers win BBL 12

Incredible. Absolutely incredible.

Perth Scorchers have won their fifth Big Bash League (BBL) title, overcoming a spirited Brisbane Heat side in a thrilling final played in front of over 50,000 fans at Optus Stadium.

But, they certainly didn’t have it their own way. 19-year old Cooper Connolly struck a memorable 11-ball 25 alongside Nick Hobson’s 7-ball 18 to get Perth home with four balls to spare, soon after hope looked gone when Ashton Turner (53 off 32 balls) was run out with 39 still needed.

However, Connolly immediately went on the attack, bringing the equation down to 24 off 12 balls and then ten off six. Hobson then took advantage of Neser nerves to seal the victory, sending the crowd into raptures on a memorable night for the Scorchers and BBL.

Much was made of the Heat’s absentees, but it needs reminding who the Scorchers were without. They lost Mitchell Marsh, Laurie Evans and Tymal Mills before a ball was bowled this season. Ashton Agar and Lance Morris are away on national duty. Jhye Richardson missed the rest of the campaign after seven games due to injury and Cameron Green injured his finger in the Tests.

But, in the likes of Connolly, Perth continue to prove why they are the best side in Australia thanks to their depth.

In the process, the Scorchers equalled Mumbai Indians’ five domestic T20 titles. Here are some of the reactions to a magnificent finale.
