Johannesburg, Oct 29(ANI): Big Bash team Sydney Sixers produced a master class performance to win the fourth edition of the Champions League Twenty20, trouncing local favourites Highveld Lions by ten wickets in the final at the Wanderers on Sunday.
Chasing the Lions' 121 all out, Sixers raced to 124 without loss with Englishman Michael Lumb smashing his way to a thrilling 82 not out off just 42 balls with eight fours and five sixes, Sports24 reports.
Lumb and fellow opener Brad Haddin (38 not out) made light work of chasing down the Lions' total as they scored the winning runs with 45 balls remaining.
Earlier, the Johannesburg-based Lions were sent in to bat in front of a sell-out crowd and lost their last wicket off the last ball of their allotted 20 overs, with Jean Symes's 51 off 46 balls top scoring.
New Zealand off-spinner Nathan McCullum, who opened the bowling for the Sixers, claimed 3-24 while pace man Josh Hazlewood nabbed 3-22. (ANI)
