WT20 final set for the big stage

UPDATED 06 February, 2013 10:13AM AEST | by Cricket Australia

The WT20 competition is set for a dramatic finale, with the season-decider scheduled to precede the Big Final of the KFC T20 Big Bash League (BBL) on Saturday 19 January, 2013.

FOX SPORTS will broadcast the WT20 final between the Lend Lease Breakers and the Western Fury live and exclusive, which is set to take place in either Melbourne or Perth, pending the scheduling of the Big Final.
The Breakers comfortably qualified for the final of the 20-over competition, having remained undefeated after their 12 matches this season.

It was a closer race for second place on the table, with the Western Fury sealing their spot in the final in the last home-and-away fixture of the season, with a convincing win over the ACT Tradies Meteors.
The Breakers have had the wood over the Fury this season in the T20 format, notching 25-run and 9-wicket wins earlier in the season.
Both teams will be vying to have their name etched on the trophy for the first time, with the Commonwealth Bank VicSpirit the only team to have won the WT20 tournament, having claimed the three titles since the competition’s inception in the 2009-10 season.

While the Breakers have competed in all WT20 finals to date, this is a history-making occasion for the Western Fury, with it being their first-ever final in this competition.
In order to enter the venue to watch the WT20 final, fans will need to purchase a ticket to the Big Final of the KFC T20 BBL, or be a member of the relevant venue.
The venue and start time of the match will be confirmed once the Big Final of the KFC T20 BBL schedule has been determined.
The match will be live scored on, while you can also follow updates via Twitter: @CricNSWBreakers, @waca_cricket and @_SouthernStars
