Sydney Sixers Beat Highveld Lions By 10 Wickets To Win CLT20 Title

Sydney Sixers won the Champions League Twenty20 2012 with ease, walking to a 10-wicket victory over Highveld Lions in the final at The Wanderers in Johannesburg on Sunday (October 28).

The Sixers first rode on a brilliant bowling display by spinner Nathan McCullum (3-24) and pacer Josh Hazlewood (3-22) to dismiss Highveld Lions for a modest 121 in their stipulated 20 overs after winning the toss and electing to field.

The Australian side then returned to overhaul the target with 7.3 overs to spare, thanks to some powerful hitting by opener Michael Lumb and Brad Haddin, who notched up an unbeaten 124-run partnership.
