Watch: Highlights from BBL|05

Australia

The Big Bash League has come and gone, with the Sydney Thunder winning both the men's and women's competitions. If you're having withdrawals, here are a few highlight clips, to soothe the symptoms.

Usman Khawaja smashed 104 in the first semi-final, which pushed the Thunder into the finale. Khawaja played just four matches, but scored two centuries and two half tons, averaging more than 170.

Brisbane Heat's Chris Lynn was the leading run scorer in the end, scoring a ton and three fifties in eight games. One of his more memorable moments was when he smashed Ben Hilfenhaus all over the park.

Adelaide's Travis Head earned himself a national call up to the Australia side after his efforts in the BBL. One main highlight was his 101 off 53 balls against the Sixers.

Melbourne Renegades batsman Chris Gayle infamously lived up to his team name, but did contribute one half ton to the cause. He smashed 50 off 12 balls, the joint fastest in format history, but the Renegades still lost to the Adelaide Strikers.

One of the more amusing moments came when Kevin Pietersen, on the mic for the Stars, was fielding and said he'd like for Chris Gayle to pop one up into the air for him… and the Renegades man obliged!

Strikers' spinner Adil Rashid was the revelation though, taking 16 wickets at an average of just over 14, the best of the tournament. Here's a compilation.

As far as catches go, The Thunder's Andre Russell took probably the best one of the tournament. Watch this screamer!
