Opting to bat after winning the toss in the final, Brisbane Heat’s top-notch batting display set the tone for their triumph. Josh Brown’s impressive half-century, scoring 53 off 38 deliveries, along with valuable contributions from Matt Renshaw (40 off 22) and skipper Nathan McSweeney (33 off 32), powered Heat to a formidable total of 166. Max Bryant added to the onslaught with a quickfire 29 off 19 balls. Spencer Johnson’s unbeaten 4/26 and a power-packed over that yielded 31 runs showcased the Heat’s skills.

Sydney Sixers faced an uphill battle in the chase as opener Daniel Hughes departed early to Michael Neser. Despite a promising powerplay that saw boundaries from Jack Edwards and Josh Philippe, the Sixers’ hopes were dashed as Edwards fell to Spencer Johnson. The middle-order collapse was sealed by Johnson’s destructive spell, claiming two more wickets, while Xavier Bartlett polished off the innings with two wickets in the 17th over. The Sixers managed only 112 runs in their pursuit.
