Perth Scorchers vs Brisbane Heat live stream: how to watch the 2021 BBL finals

Perth Scorchers face an uphill battle if they are to beat the Brisbane Heat today and qualify for the BBL 10 final on Saturday 6th February. The Heat have been on a superb run of form lately and are, appropriately, the red hot favourites to join the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League 2021 final. 

The weather’s looking overcast and cool, and while there’s a chance of rain later in the evening, hopefully it’ll hold out for the duration of the game. Follow our guide to get a Perth Scorchers vs Brisbane Heat live stream from anywhere.

The BBL 10 final is shaping up nicely. Last week the Sydney Sixers trashed the Perth Scorchers in the Qualifier round of the playoffs, winning by nine wickets to advance to the Big Bash final on Saturday 6th February.

The Scorchers now have a second bite at the cherry in the form of the Challenger round, which gets underway on Thursday at 8.40am GMT at the Manuka Oval, Canberra.

Perth will have to play out of their skins to beat Brisbane Heat, though. Heat beat the Adelaide Strikers by six wickets in the Eliminator round, before seeing off Sydney Thunder in the Knock-Out, and have now won four consecutive matches in a row.

Both teams are still in the hunt for the BBL 10 title but the Heat’s batting prowess – which last time out included a stellar unbeaten partnership of 92 between Sam Heazlett (74) and Jimmy Peirson (43) – could cause the Scorchers some serious problems.

Excited for the penultimate BBL match of the season? Here’s how to watch the Aussie T20 league cricket cheaply, including a Perth Scorchers vs Brisbane Heat live stream.

Watch the Big Bash anywhere in the world using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant BBL rights holders, you won’t be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Try ExpressVPN risk-free for 30 days
ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There’s 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – you’ll be surprised how simple it is.
