If you’re jogging near Milsons Point on Sunday at dawn, you may have come across a group of Big Bash champions

Tired but excited and still in their magenta jerseys, a group of Sydney Sixers players resumed the celebrations under Harbor Bridge after they went out the night before Sept.000 fans at SCG had a 27-run win against the Perth Scorchers

When Josh Philippe moved from Sydney’s bladder to the Australian T20 team’s bladder on Sunday, the Sixers couldn’t celebrate the win in a bar or pub – or even with family and friends – without dropping their star batsman

So the united team celebrated alone on the ground instead and then at their hotel, and later veteran star Dan Christian suggested a group that should go to Sydney Harbor to watch the sunrise COVID-safe style, which too wouldn’t? Philipe’s status will not be jeopardized later in the day

“It was a fond memory for us as players to remember who we represented and what a brilliant city we should represent,” Captain Moises Henriques said Sunday morning after just five hours of sleep

The Sixers were on the move for nearly 60 days in the 2020-21 season after home games for SCG were relocated the following month after the Avalon outbreak in December

Little did the Sydney team know that time outside the port city would prove to be a key element of the Sixers successful season that brings them closer together The seasoned weirdo Steve Oâ ???? Keefe, who clinched his third BBL title on Saturday, described the 2020-21 win as the sweetest win of all

The organizers of Cricket Australia and BBL also celebrated Sunday after the final drew an average audience of 1.3 million, up 12 percent from the previous year’s figure of 1.174 million

The final series was the most watched in history with 5 viewers – 24 million, an increase of 11 percent compared to the previous year

It was a great result for the league, which has seen a decline in the average free-to-air audience in a row in regular season games and is still at the center of a legal battle between CA and host broadcaster Seven Western Media

Big Bash boss Alistair Dobson said the increase in viewership had sparked a degree of “optimism” with clubs and everyone involved, but he added that there was still much to be done to improve the tournament

The Big Bash will now enter a review period in the off-season to resolve a number of issues raised in the 10th episode of the tournament

The first item on the agenda is to assess the need for a decision-making system after a string of howls became the biggest source of frustration for fans

The decision to start the finals on Saturday at the family-unfriendly time of 7.40 a.m., which postponed the game past 11 p.m., is also being reviewed

Dobson said new rules introduced this season, including spikes and substitutes, are being discussed but have been “broadly successful”

“We have shown [this season] that we have an appetite for innovation in order to keep the games as exciting and interesting as possible”â ????

Ferguson took to Instagram to express his disappointment after being told he would not be offered a contract next year

“I am now looking forward to my playful future in the BBL” he wrote
