I have been following the performances of the eight teams in WBBL03.
Prior to the final, my profiles of the two finalists were:

Scorchers’ median partnership profile when winning up to the final:
My data suggested that the Sixers’ median innings’ total when winning was 146 and losing 121. For the Scorchers, median win 136 and loss 124.
In the final, the profiles were:
Sixers (two partnerships)
The Scorchers won the toss and chose to bat first.
My estimate before the final: if the game went badly for the Scorchers they might score 94. The worst case would be a partnership sequence of: 23, 10, 5, 10, 11, 20, 0, 2, 12, 1.
The Scorchers scored 99 runs with a partnership sequence of: 23, 3, 3, 12, 20, 5, 5, 19, 4, 5.
In reply, the Sixers had their second highest first wicket partnership (64) of their WBBL03 season.
