10:17 pm That's all from me for tonight. I'm Peter Della Penna. Come back tomorrow for coverage of the next BBL encounter between Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat.

Darcy Short named Man of the Match: "It got a bit closer than I would have liked at the end but the boys stuck to their plans and have come out the other end. Hopefully tonight kicks us on and we get a few more wins. Riley is going for a scan to see what's wrong but we've definitely got the depth to cover him [and James Faulkner]."

10:10 pm Fielding was the difference between the two sides in the end. Darcy Short dropped multiple times, starting on 21, on the way to making a 70-ball century that took the Hurricanes to a total that was just enough in the end. Despite Riley Meredith leaving the field after two overs due to a side strain and no James Faulkner in the lineup either, the Hurricanes wind up winning rather comfortably in spite of the final official margin. The Hurricanes move into fifth place with the win while Perth hang back in seventh, sitting above the winless Renegades.
