  Perth Scorchers innings (20 overs maximum) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal M Klinger c O'Connor b Neser 1 5 0 0 20.00
0.6 taken. The pace in this pitch again. Back of a length, rises to Klinger's ribs, top-edged pull travels to fine leg who runs in a few yards and completes a simple catch in front of his midriff. One of Scorchers' best goes. Beaten for pace 7/1
View dismissal SM Whiteman c O'Connor b Richardson 22 17 4 0 129.41
7.3 good take. Back of a length on middle, Whiteman top-edges this because of some extra zip and oomph in the delivery. The ball flies down to fine leg, who gets in position early, sets himself up and takes an easy reverse-cupped catch. 64/2
View dismissal IR Bell run out (Weatherald) 61 42 6 2 145.23
15.1 Richardson to Turner, ooh. That could be out. Lovely stuff from Weatherald. Back of a length on middle, worked to midwicket and Turner calls for one. Weatherald runs in, picks up and throws the stumps down at the batsman's end. Bell knew he was gone. Superb knock 134/5
View dismissal MR Marsh c & b Jordan 31 19 2 2 163.15
12.5 taken this time. Back of a length on middle, Marsh looked to pull but the pace in this surface again responsible for a wicket. Spliced away to short midwicket, Jordan runs around and takes a simple chance 121/3
View dismissal DJ Willey c Weatherald b Jordan 2 5 0 0 40.00
14.1 well bowled. Hustles Willey with a well-directed bouncer on leg. Willey pulls, fails to keep it down and finds deep square leg. The fourth dismissal this innings caught in the deep off a short delivery 125/4
AJ Turner not out 44 19 2 4 231.57
View dismissal AC Voges* c †Dunk b Pollard 2 4 0 0 50.00
16.5 straight through, and given! 123 kph, goes quickly on middle. Bounces just over middle stump as Voges misses a flick, closing the bat face on the ball. Dunk dives to his left and takes the catch. 158/6
View dismissal AC Agar c Hodge b Neser 16 10 2 0 160.00
19.5 short delivery on off, 129 kph. Slower ball. Agar swats the ball in the air to midwicket. Hodge settles underneath that 191/7

  Adelaide Strikers innings (target: 198 runs from 20 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal BR Dunk c Klinger b Willey 0 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 More outswing, this time he draws a drive from Dunk who hits it straight to Klinger at covers. Might have been a wide if he hadn't gone after that. Scorchers return the favour and strike in the first over. 0/1
View dismissal J Weatherald lbw b Willey 1 7 0 0 14.28
2.6 Brilliant from Willey! Builds the pressure, and bowls one straight and full. Weatherald misses, trapped in front. 7/2
View dismissal TM Head c †Whiteman b Richardson 13 13 2 0 100.00
3.6 Richardson persists with the angle and pushes it slightly wider. Head gets the outside edge this time and it is easily taken by the keeper 15/3
View dismissal BJ Hodge* b Johnson 56 33 8 1 169.69
12.3 the stumps flash red and Johnson loves that. Funnily enough though, this is the slower ball. The offcutter, full and straight. Hodge swung across the line, he doesn't pick the variation either and is through the shot a touch too soon 86/7
View dismissal KA Pollard c Marsh b Johnson 4 7 0 0 57.14
7.5 a wicket in his first over, and the WACA explodes. Johnson is lost underneath a huddle, people yanking on his hair after he has forced Pollard to top edge to third man. It was quick, just back of a length and outside off. The batsman tried to slap it through the line, somewhere in the region of point, but made nowhere near the requisite connection. Offers a skier to Mitch Marsh who takes it reverse cup. 52/4
View dismissal JS Lehmann run out (Klinger) 2 6 0 0 33.33
10.3 from Marsh, Klinger fires a direct hit at the bowler's end from point! Lehmann was looking to give the strike back, but he seems to hesitate. He's still only a third of the way down the pitch when the fielder got to the ball, was halfway down when he took aim and was nowhere near safety when the throw hits the target 66/5
View dismissal CJ Jordan lbw b Agar 1 2 0 0 50.00
11.3 he's played across a straight ball and has been pinned in front of middle and leg. Good change of pace from Agar. He fired it in quick, and full. Jordan wasn't ready. His bat is still coming down, when he is struck below the knee-roll. Easy decision 78/6
View dismissal MG Neser c Richardson b Johnson 17 13 2 0 130.76
17.6 finishes his spell with a short ball that's pulled straight into deep square leg's hands. Screams in delight. 141/8
View dismissal KW Richardson c Agar b Richardson 45 28 2 4 160.71
19.1 legcutter outside off, plopped to long-off. Misses his fifty by five runs, but it's been an entertaining innings. 145/9
