Watch Perth Scorchers vs Brisbane Heat live stream: Big Bash Final preview
A record-breaking fifth Big Bash League title is in reach of Perth Scorchers, as they take on battling Brisbane Heat in today's showpiece final at Perth Stadium.
The Scorchers come into this showdown as runaway favourites, having finished on top of the BBL|12 table, with home advantage as well as good form on their side.
The Heat have meanwhile had too shown plenty of grit to get to this stage. They negotiated three play-off finals away from home to qualify after ending the regular season in fifth place.
Brisbane booked their place in the final with a backs-to-the-wall four-wicket win over the much-fancied Sydney Sixers on Thursday at the Sydney Cricket Ground, thanks in large part to a steady 48 not out stand from Michael Neser.
The Scorchers have the quality as well as a partisan crowd behind them, but the Heat undoubtedly have momentum.
Key to who wins could come down to how Brisbane cope without duo Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne, who have both departed for international duty with India and Australia.
Read on as we run you through your options for getting a Perth Scorchers vs Brisbane Heat live stream and watch the Big Bash 2023 Final online, no matter where you are in the world.

How to watch the Big Bash Final 2023 for free in Australia
Coverage of the 2020/21 Big Bash Final is split in Australia, with free-to-air Channel 7 showing the showdown in Perth alongside pay TV giant Fox Sports .
Its worth noting though that 7's coverage is restricted to terrestrial TV and won't therefore be available to stream on its 7Plus online service.
For those looking to watch the action online and on the go, the best option is likely to be Foxtel's sister streaming service Kayo Sports (opens in new tab) which will be carrying Fox's coverage.
It features no lock-in contracts and gives you access to over 50 other sports including the NRL, soccer, F1, NFL... the list goes on! Handy if you don't want to go all-out on Fox.
After that, the Basic Package costs $25 per month and allows users to stream across two devices simultaneously. The service also offers a Premium Package, which provides three concurrent streams for $35 per month.
It's also worth noting that Kayo offers a 7 day free trial (opens in new tab) for new customers, meaning you'll be able to stream Saturday's final without paying a penny.

Outside Australia? Don't forget, you can take your cricket coverage abroad with you as well. For those wanting to watch home coverage of sports from overseas, a good VPN (opens in new tab)is the solution.
