1.3

Bates to Gibbs, FOUR, swiped away, from a length just outside off. Clears midwicket

1.4

Bates to Gibbs, OUT, Gibss's horror tournament comes to an end. He has hit a length ball straight down mid-off's throat. Disappointing shot to top up a disappointing tournament

HH Gibbs c Munro b Bates 6 (6m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Perth Scorchers 7/1   MD Bates 1-0-6-1

3.1

Bates to North, FOUR, punched away into the on side. Not too short, but North has short-armed it through square leg for four

3.2

Bates to North, FOUR, walks down the wicket, gets right to its pitch, and drives this past extra cover. Doesn't even run for this. Doesn't need to

3.3

Bates to North, no run, short of a length, on off, defended

3.4

Bates to North, no run, drives away from the body, mis-hit to point

3.5

Bates to North, FOUR, down the wicket, takes it on the full, and drives it wide of mid-off

Bates to North, no run, full, middle, driven to mid-on

Perth Scorchers 20/1   MD Bates 2-0-18-1

17.1

Bates to Beaton, OUT, full, straight, and Beaton swings and misses. The off stump goes for a walk

TM Beaton b Bates 22 (26m 19b 1x4 1x6) SR: 115.78

17.2

Bates to Ronchi, 1 run, short of a length, on off, uppishly hit past cover

17.3

Bates to Collingwood, FOUR, full toss, and Collingwood smashes it over midwicket. With a six-inch back lift again

17.4

Bates to Collingwood, 1 run, dabbed away to third man

17.5

Bates to Ronchi, 1 run, length ball, chipped away to wide long-on

17.6

Perth Scorchers 126/4   MD Bates 3-0-26-2

19.1

Bates to Ronchi, OUT, and here's a wicket. Bates has begun both his last overs with a wicket. Low full toss, Ronchi doesn't get all of it, and holes out to long-on

L Ronchi c Guptill b Bates 4 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

19.2

Bates to Collingwood, 1 run, OUT, nearly a yorker, dug out into the leg side, and he wants a second, and here's a schoolboy error from the man who made a career out of eliminating mistakes. Collingwood takes it easy, doesn't slide the bat in, and his body is over the crease but only in the air when the bails come off. This habit he must have acquired from his former captain at Delhi Daredevils, Virender Sehwag

PD Collingwood run out 38 (43m 27b 5x4 0x6) SR: 140.74

19.3

Bates to Mennie, 2 runs, chipped away wide of long-on, a fumble allows them time to take the second

19.4

Bates to Mennie, OUT, Bates has bated his way to 50 T20 wickets. Length ball, on the pads, but Mennie manages to reach only as far as Hira at deep midwicket

JM Mennie c Hira b Bates 2 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

19.5

Bates to Coulter-Nile, 1 run, yorker, on leg, can just get the single to mid-off

19.6

Bates to Hogg, FOUR, what a shot from Hogg to finish the innings. That was full and following him even as he backed away, but he has managed to squeeze this from well outside leg, and between point and cover-point

Perth Scorchers 140/7   MD Bates 4-0-34-4
