While the odds may be against them according to the bookies, Perth have nevertheless been given something of a fillip with the news that Sydney star man Mitchell Starc will not be available for selection. That selection issue for their rivals is tempered by the fact that the Scorchers themselves will be without key batsman Jason Roy for the final, however.

Perth have shown they still have plenty of fight left in them after defeating Brisbane Heat in impressive style in the Challenger contest to reach this showdown, with their bowlers doing a sterling job to deliver a 49-run victory by the DLS method.

Similar resilience will be needed here for Perth to pull of a shock win, but don't count against the Scorchers exacting revenge over the Sixers in the very best way possible.

Read on as we run you through your options for getting a Sydney Sixers vs Perth Scorchers live stream and watch the Big Bash 2021 Final online, no matter where you are in the world.

FREE Big Bash final live stream 2021 in Australia 


Coverage of the 2020/21 Big Bash Final is split in Australia, with free-to-air Channel 7 showing the showdown in Sydney 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 which will be carrying Fox's coverage.

Kayo features no lock-in contracts and gives you access not only to BBL cricket but to over 50 sports including the F1, NRL, FA Cup football, NBA playoffs...the list goes on! Handy if you don't want to go all out on Fox.

Kayo Sports Basic Package costs $25 per month and allows users to stream across two devices simultaneously. Alternatively, the service also offers a Kayo Sports Premium Package, which provides three concurrent streams for $35 per month.

For those wanting to watch their Fox Sports or Kayo subscription coverage overseas, you'll need to go down the VPN route as below - our latest testing reveals that Kayo is working just fine with VPN services right now, so Aussies abroad can sign-up with confidence.

The build-up begins on Fox and Kayo with B4 The Bash at 6.30pm AEDT, before the main event coverage which kicks off at 7.40pm AEDT.
