Striking Hughes burns Scorchers

Phillips Hughes hit an attacking 74 to set up a successful chase after Adelaide's spinners tied down the Scorchers

Match Centre

The Phil Hughes led Strikers have started BBL02 in great style, it's never easy coming to Perth and getting the win.

Voges and Marsh were impressive earlier for the hosts, but it was Hughes' 74 and Reardon's 42 that got the job done. Hughes has been named Man of the Match as his run of golden form continues.

Thanks for your company tonight. Good night
