Faulkner to North, SIX, slower ball outside the off stump. North picks it, comes down the track and lofts it inside out over extra cover for the first six of the innings

Perth Scorchers 52/0   MJ North 18* (16b 1x4 1x6)   JP Faulkner 1.4-0-15-0

17.3

Faulkner to Marsh, SIX, slower ball outside stump. Marsh pulls and manages to get it sail over the outstretched hand of Bailey at long-on. Much needed hit that

Perth Scorchers 143/3   MR Marsh 13* (10b 1x6)   JP Faulkner 3.3-0-36-0

18.1

McKay to Marsh, SIX, slower ball outside the off stump. Width given. Enough invitation for Marsh to free his arms. He send the ball five rows over the long-off fence

Perth Scorchers 152/3   MR Marsh 21* (13b 2x6)   CJ McKay 3.1-0-28-1

19.1

Bird to Marsh, SIX, length ball on the off stump. Marsh finds the sweetest spot of his bat as he sends it to the first tier

19.2

Bird to Marsh, SIX, half-volley on the middle stump. Marsh lofts it to long-on for another six. Marsh is doing to Bird, what Gibbs did in the second over. Just that he is dealing in sixes

Perth Scorchers 171/3   MR Marsh 38* (18b 1x4 4x6)   JM Bird 3.2-0-36-1
