9.40pm Phew! What a match, what a finish! Scorchers nearly batted themselves out of this contest but they scrape through in the end in the tightest of finishes. And in his WACA farewell, Brad Hogg will be left ruing that catch he put down to reprieve Ashton Turner. Turner was on 16, Scorchers were two down, and the required rate was mounting. Had that catch been taken, this could have been such a different story. But that's not to be and Scorchers go top of the table after a record chase in front of a record crowd. That's all we have. Thanks for joining us, folks!

"To come back with the bat was unbelievable," says Ashton Agar. "Ashton Turner played an incredible innings. It's what you dream of as a kid - a four off the last bal, a hundred - these are the kind of things you dream of. We'll take great confidence from this performance."

Mohammad Nabi to Agar, 1 run, No, we won't. A full toss to end it all that's driven wide of long-off and that seals a hard-earned win for the home team much to the delight of a record local crowd

Scores level. Can we get two dots?

Mohammad Nabi to David, 1 run, drills this from outside off down to long-off. Not clean connection as he chops into the ground but that will do

Tim David with 2 to get off three

Mohammad Nabi to Agar, 1 run, comes down the track and whips this towards wide long-on who's on to in a flash. Only time for a single

Mohammad Nabi to Agar, no run, slaps at a wide fuller delivery and hits it straight to cover. Dot

Agar on strike. Three runs needed. Two for a Super Over. Nabi with the unenviable task of bowling it

Richardson to David, 2 runs, he goes for the big shot nonetheless and it helps them knock off two more from the target. A full and wide delivery that's heaved over the in-field in the extra cover region
