It was a fairy-tale finish to an eventful BBL🏆 campaign for the Sydney Thunder⚡ after they scraped past Melbourne Stars to win their maiden BBL🏆 trophy. Thunder had never finished outside the bottom two before this year and just sneaked through to the semi finals this time around😯. But since then, Usman Khawaja has been in sensational form👌 and he hit a 40 ball 70💥 today to set Thunder⚡ on the way to chase down Stars' 176. Though there was a mini collapse after Khawaja was dismissed😳, Thunder batsmen did just enough to overhaul the target🎯. Earlier, Kevin Pietersen's enterprising 39 ball 74 had powered Stars🌠 to 176 though it proved to be in vain😕.
Brisbane Heat's Chris Lynn was declared Man of the Series🎉.
