    Sydney were off to a very good start courtesy of Chris Lynn. Adelaide's pacers appeared to be lacking in rhythm, giving the batsmen some absolute freebies during the first ten.

    Adelaide's stand-in skipper George Bailey was having a terrible time out in the middle with four dropped catches to his name so far. Chris Lynn and Shane Watson milked runs off the bowling with ease.

    It was Rashid Khan who provided the much needed breakthrough for Adelaide as he has done so often this season. Watson departed for a well played 43 after putting on 109 for the 1st wicket alongside Lynn. You couldn't ask for a better start in a final.

    While fortune continued to favor Lynn, it didn't so Joe Root today with him being stumped by the narrowest of margins off Shakib Al Hasan. Sydney had lost their hero from the previous season's finale for just 4.

    Two balls later, the unthinkable happened. Virat Kohli who had been seemingly unstoppable with the bat all season was out for a 2-ball duck. Hot diggity dog!

    And then it was Rashid Khan who joined in on the act with the wickets of Lynn and Dhoni, also for zero. Sydney were being ripped to shreds by Adelaide's Rashid-Shakib spin duo once again.

    He decided to shift gears soon after that and was joined in on the act by Nathan Coulter-Nile, who struck a couple of huge blows off Cummins in the 47th over which yielded 18 runs.

    Stokes and Coulter-Nile both lost their wickets trying to hit out. James Pattinson bowled a very tight final over during which he conceded only 2 runs, which saw Sydney finish on 274/8 off their 50 overs. A good effort after being reduced to 134/5 at one stage. This left Adelaide with 275 to chase in order to lift the ELA trophy for the very first time.

    Well when Root, Kohli and Dhoni make a total of 4 runs between them and you still get to 274, it has to be a great effort from the other batters. Both Lynn and Stokes finally showing their true ability with the bat and scoring when we needed them the most! We lost 5 wickets for 25 runs in that horrible collapse but to come back from there and get 274 runs on the board in the big final is a commendable job by our batters! Those 20 runs by Coulter-Nile are going to be the difference here, I feel. We have the bowling to do this, come on guys, go for the victory!

    Sydney were off to a very good start courtesy of Chris Lynn. Adelaide's pacers appeared to be lacking in rhythm, giving the batsmen some absolute freebies during the first ten.

    It was Rashid Khan who provided the much needed breakthrough for Adelaide as he has done so often this season. Watson departed for a well played 43 after putting on 109 for the 1st wicket alongside Lynn. You couldn't ask for a better start in a final.

    Stokes and Coulter-Nile both lost their wickets trying to hit out. James Pattinson bowled a very tight final over during which he conceded only 2 runs, which saw Sydney finish on 274/8 off their 50 overs. A good effort after being reduced to 134/5 at one stage. This left Adelaide with 275 to chase in order to lift the ELA trophy for the very first time.

    Shakib Al Hasan brought up his fifty off just 35 balls. This after having earlier dented Sydney's lineup considerably with the ball, there seemed to be little he could do wrong in this match.

    Bailey brought up his own half-century off 45 balls. The pair had already added more than a hundred runs together at this stage, and all in pretty quick time too. Sydney were no doubt starting to feel the pressure as Adelaide inched ever closer to putting their deficit into double figures.

    After having added 145 runs in just 19.5 overs, the pair were finally separated by Kane Richardson. It was hardly a relief at this stage with Adelaide needing only 77 runs for victory with 5 wickets in hand and batting all the way down to No 11.

    The big hitting threat of Marcus Stoinis was neutralized by Ben Stokes in the over after Shakib's dismissal. Maybe it's not all doom and gloom for Sydney just yet.

    The fate of the match kept swinging like a pendulum as Bailey holed out in the deep to Nathan Coulter-Nile off Ben Stokes, who celebrated his third wicket of the innings. A stupid, stupid thing to do at this stage with the match so delicately poised. It's over to Adelaide's plucky tailenders now to see the job through.

    Adelaide entered the final stage of their innings needing a fairly straightforward 34 off 60 balls for victory but with only two wickets in hand. They're well ahead of the required rate, so all they basically need to do now is keep their heads intact.

    Despite doing that initially, Rashid Khan couldn't fight his instincts to go over the top once again. And boy did it turn out to be a costly error of judgement at this stage. Richardson finished a rather expensive spell with 4 wickets to his name as Adelaide were down to their last man, albeit one who averaged almost 50 with the bat for Nottinghamshire in the 2017 season.

    Unlike Rashid, Pat Cummins and James Pattinson decided to play it safe by focusing on ones and twos. Just 16 needed of 30 balls for Adelaide.


    HTML:
    45.1  Watson to Pattinson, no run, That ball was a mystery to the batsman
    45.2  Watson to Pattinson, no run, Huge appeal for LBW but turned down
    45.3  Watson to Pattinson, no run, A lot of movement being extracted by Watson        
    45.4  Watson to Pattinson, one run, Great cooperation between James Pattinson and Pat Cummins        
    45.5  Watson to Cummins, one run, That was a very risky single.
    45.6  Watson to Pattinson, no run, Defensively played by James Pattinson
    
             End of over 46  (2 runs)

    They managed two more singles off Watson in the 46th over. 14 off 24 now..

    46.1  Coult'Nile to Cummins, SIX, What a six!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    Pat Cummins then stood tall and deliver a huge blow to Sydney's hopes with a six off Nathan Coulter-Nile. With just 8 needed off 23 balls now, it could all end in this over itself.


    HTML:
    46.2  Coult'Nile to Cummins, one run, Great cooperation between Pat Cummins and James Pattinson    
    46.3  Coult'Nile to Pattinson, no run, The umpire turns down that ridiculous appeal from MS Dhoni          
    46.4  Coult'Nile to Pattinson, no run, A lot of movement being extracted by Coult'Nile    
    46.5  Coult'Nile to Pattinson, no run, James Pattinson was completely deceived 
    HTML:
    46.6  Coult'Nile to Pattinson, OUT, Thats out by a long way!!! Great throw from Callum Ferguson
    
             James Pattinson        4 (19b)
             run out (Ferguson)

    And it did! Just not the way Adelaide had pictured. Sydney celebrated victory by only 6 runs to claim their second ELA title victory in as many seasons! What a way to finish the match by Callum Ferguson!

    The Sydney Roosters celebrated their second title victory in as many seasons, matching a feat accomplished only by the legendary West Coast Fever side between Seasons I and II. It was their third title victory overall in the league, making them the most successful franchise in it's 7-season history. And they did it all without regular skipper Steve Smith, who was forced to watch from the sidelines as the ever reliable MS Dhoni led them to victory in his absence. They return to the CL once again, this time even stronger due to the presence of Ben Stokes in their lineup.

    [​IMG]

    This was the closest the Adelaide Crows had ever come to winning the title. Having dominated the round robin with 7 victories and just 2 defeats from 10 matches, it all ended in heartbreak for them due to a run out. Sport can be very cruel indeed.

    [​IMG]

    Ben Stokes was declared Player of the Match for his all-round efforts which included a defiant 75 off 79 balls to help Sydney recover from 134/5 to post 274. He later claimed 3 for 50 off 10 overs with the ball, showing why he was one of the world's best all-rounders despite enduring a rather lean season with the ball by his standards. He fought off stiff competition from Shakib Al Hasan, who had set the match up nicely in Adelaide's favor with 2 for 36 off 10 overs followed by 72 off just 57 balls with the bat.

    [​IMG]

    AB de Villiers of Melbourne Storm was declared Player of the Tournament for scoring 595 runs at an awe-inspiring average of 74.38 from 11 matches. It was just one run more than Virat Kohli of the Sydney Roosters who scored 594 runs at 54.00 from 12 matches with 3 centuries to his name, but recorded a duck in the final. That was that for Season VII.

    Hurraaayyyyyy!!!!!! This is a dream come true, we were always in the game courtesy of picking up regular wickets. Kane was fantastic and I just can't thank Stokesy enough! What. A. Player. It feels amazing to have won this thing and I would like to thank the owner @The Deadman for giving me managerial duties and trusting me with this solid team. It was tough after we lost Smithy just beforw the playoffs but MSD is such a reliable leader. This season was a complete team effort. Thanks a ton to @VC the slogger for running one of the best leagues I have ever been a part of, this one! Sydney Rocks!
