Commentator: Deivarayan Muthu

5.35pm That is that. Perth Scorchers displace Adelaide Strikers from the top of the table. The Scorchers were reduced to 4 for 43 in a chase of 113, but Cartwright combined with Agar for an unbroken 71-run stand to see their side home. That is all we have for you from this match. Goodbye for now

Agar, Man of the Match: We were not sure what a par score would be. We bowled really well today. Our depth has been tested but we have stepped up. The wicket is difficult to bat on, and the outfield is slow as well. It was nice to come out with a win. I've done a lot of bowling, I just have to put it down to that. Winning is a habit and we have got into that habit. We want to win another final.

Neser to Cartwright, FOUR, pitched up and outside off, right in the slot, Cartwright hits it on the up and sends the ball whistling over the covers to seal the Scorchers' win

Shuraim: "Please Scorchers finish it off quickly so I can start watching India vs south Africa without being distracted."
