Sixers nail Titans in thriller

Centurion, Oct 26, 2012, PTI :

Sydney Sixers kept kept their cool to beat Nashua Titans by two wickets in a nerve-wracking second semifinal of the Champions League Twenty20 here on Friday.

Needing eight runs from the final over to reach the target of 164, Sixers’ Pat Cummins held his nerve to scamper home for a bye off the last delivery as the Big Bash Champions won the most thrilling match of an otherwise drab T20 tournament.

The Sixers will now take on Highveld Lions in the final to be played on Sunday.

The match went into the wire and all three results were possible but the Sixers ultimately reaped dividends due to a good opening stand.

The Australian side started the chase in right earnest as opener Steve O’Keefe hit off-spinner Eden Links for couple of boundaries. His partner Michael Lumb got two more in the second over from Ethy Mbhalati.
