    13.2 Wade hooks and holes out to Kelly at deep square leg! Kelly runs to his right in the deep and tracks it down even as the sun squints into his eyes. Banged in short and angling away outside off, Bresnan does not offer much pace. Might have stuck in the surface, and the batsman can't manufacture enough pace of his own. Wade falls for 71 off 45 at a strike-rate of 158 120/3
    4.5 Belting catch from Mitch Marsh running in from mid-on and diving forward to pouch it inches from the ground. The pace and bounce comes into the spotlight again. Back of a length and bounces up on off stump, cramps Paine for room. He is late onto a pull/hook and only manages to splice a catch. He contrubited 4 out of 44 in the opening stand 44/1
    9.4 Bailey advances down the track and splices a catch to mid-off in the circle. He dares to step out, Bresnan drags his length back, looks like a short legcutter, hits high on the bat and balloons to Johnson 80/2

    19.5 Christian backs a fair way outside the leg stump and misses a yorker. He ventures out of the crease and Bancroft catches him short with an accurate under-arm throw. Christian was looking for a single but it wasn't there. He did not have enough time to turn back and make his crease. Good work from the keeper 208/4

    2.5 Juggled catch at short fine leg by Reardon. Dug in short and outside off, Klinger gets inside the line but miscues a pull. Reardon takes it on the second bite after parrying it up 21/1
    5.6 Marsh has been bounced out by a 106ks slower ball. Back of a length on the leg stump, bounces up and cramps the batsman for room. He top-edges a pull to deep midwicket. Two wickets and two boundaries in the over 51/3
    5.1 Bancroft slogs but can't clear the bigger boundary at deep square leg. Back of a length and outside off, Bancroft muscles it straight into the lap of Milenko. He never really got going: out for 1 off 6 balls in a chase of 211 41/2
    7.1 Archer throws himself forward from long leg and completes an excellent catch. Back of a length on the hips, Mitch Marsh picks it up and holes out with Archer pulling off another special catch. He's everywhere. What a poor game for Mitch Marsh. He conceded 53 runs in four overs and only managed 3 off 5 with the bat 56/4
    7.2 Bailey nails a direct hit at the non-striker's end. Turner has to go for 2. This is all but over for the defending champs. Really full on off, Turner can't get underneath the length. Squeezes the ball to mid-off and sets off, but Bailey pulls off a stunning throw 57/5
    9.5 Rose yorks Cartwright with a 103kph fizzer. Speared in, squeezes underneath the bat, and rattles the stumps. This could end quickly for Perth Scorchers 68/7
    8.6 Scorchers six down and sinking in Perth. Slower bouncer, on off stump, Voges skies a pull and Paine calmly settles under it 65/6
    17.5 Dan Christian wraps up Hobart Hurricanes' win and makes another tournament final. We will have a new champion this season. Dipping slower cutter, Bresnan gets a taste of his own medicine. He does not spot the change-up, plays across the line, and is trapped in front 139/10
    13.4 back of a length and outside off, skids off the pitch and rushes the batsman into a shot. He slashes and nicks it behind to Paine. This pitch has surely quickened up 104/8
    15.3 Kelly tries to give himself room but Christian follows him with a short ball aimed at the head. He top-edges a hook to deep square leg. Scorchers are in danger of being bowled out 116/9

  • Matthew Wade draws the D'Arcy Short straw

    For most of this summer, Matthew Wade has been watching things happen. He watched his Test spot go to Tim Paine, and saw Paine and Alex Carey go past him in the white-ball international pecking order. Tonight, though, was his night

  • Scorchers bow out after Hurricanes pile up 210

    The Hurricanes had lost their last three matches, lost their leading scorer D'Arcy Short to international duty, dropped Tymal Mills, but they still managed to dethrone the defending champions
