With the kind of showing before the start of the fifth season, the Sydney Thunder were never expected to even make it to the final four of the Big Bash League, let alone with the competition.
However, under the shrewd leadership of Michael Hussey and with the presence of the likes of Usman Khawaja, Shane Watson and Jacques Kallis, the Thunder were able to turn the corner and register their first ever title win.

Final – Perth Scorchers v Sydney Sixers betting tip:
Perth Scorchers to win
The usual suspects were all there in the semi-finals, what with Perth Scorchers making it five semi-finals in a row and Melbourne Stars also entering the last-four stage. The other side who make it to the knock-outs was Adelaide Strikers.
The Strikers looked good till they entered the semi-finals but lost out to the Sydney Thunder as the latter chased down 160 for a win. The Scorchers were pegged back and reduced to 139 in their 20 overs which meant the Stars were easily able to chase it down.
Going into the sixth edition of the Big Bash League, it will be interesting to see if either of the sides will make some dramatic signings or if they will go for the tried and tested combinations.
The Sydney Thunder will be led by Shane Watson this season while Perth Scorchers will hope the signing of Ian Bell and David Willey will add to their fortunes. Melbourne Stars, as has usually been the case, has a glitzy look to the side but can the likes of Kevin Pietersen and Luke Wright guide them to glory or will coss-town rivals Melbourne Renegades steal their thunder?
Also challenging the other sides will be the Jason Gillespie-coached Adelaide Strikers who seem to have taken giant strides in the previous season while George Bailey will look to pull his Hobart Hurricanes through to a better season this year. Brisbane Heat have been up and down in the Big Bash League and will need Chris Lynn to take over while the Sydney Sixers will hope not to lose their firepower to the Aussie national side.
