Champions League Twenty20 - Group A

Auckland v Perth Scorchers

Perth Scorchers won by 16 runs

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   MJ North 1* (4b)   MD Bates 0.4-0-6-1

9.6

Hira to Katich, OUT, late-cut straight to short third man, and Mills throws well. He has caught North well short with a direct hit

MJ North run out 37 (39m 35b 4x4 1x6) SR: 105.71

Perth Scorchers 62/2   SM Katich 18* (19b 2x4)   RM Hira 2-0-20-0

11.1

Hira to Katich, OUT, timber. Katich has shuffled too far. He just keeps going across to a straight delivery, allowing it free passage to clip the leg stump. Just like S Marsh and S Katich the other day, these two are gone in the same breath after slow starts. You can't eat up so many deliveries and then get out. Oh, that hit the thigh pad, and deflected back towards the stumps

SM Katich b Hira 21 (37m 23b 2x4 0x6) SR: 91.30

Perth Scorchers 67/3   PD Collingwood 2* (3b)   RM Hira 2.1-0-20-1

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

Perth Scorchers 118/4   PD Collingwood 28* (20b 4x4)   MD Bates 2.1-0-18-2

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

Perth Scorchers 132/5   PD Collingwood 37* (26b 5x4)   MD Bates 3.1-0-26-3

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

Perth Scorchers 133/6   NM Coulter-Nile 0* (0b)   MD Bates 3.2-0-27-3

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

Perth Scorchers 135/7   NM Coulter-Nile 0* (0b)   MD Bates 3.4-0-29-4
