Strikers have now overtaken the Sydney Sixers on net run rate for second place with both teams on equal points at 17. The Sixers play wooden-spoon holders Melbourne Renegades in their last match, who are unlikely to do the Strikers any favors. Strikers come up against Hobart Hurricanes who are locked in an intense battle to claim one of the final two playoff spots available. It should be an exciting final weekend of the regular season. Stay tuned for it on ESPNcricinfo. But that's all from me tonight. I'm Peter Della Penna. Take care!

Man of the Match is Wes Agar however, not Salt: "It's always been tough to get a win in Perth so a great effort here. [Ashton] used to bully me in the backyard but backyard cricket was everything. We've got a really got process and planning in place and we let the outcome take care of itself. Cheerleaders might have got a bit excited [on the Rashid boundary near collision] but I can't blame them when it's loud in here."

9:40 pm So the Phil Salt knock proves to be the difference in the end. Outrageous attack on the Scorchers bowlers and Scorchers unable to chase despite their bowlers hauling it back well in the first innings at the death.

Siddle to Richardson, no run, wide yorker, can't get bat on it.
19.5

Siddle to Richardson, SIX runs, flicked high and deep over the leg side again. Cosmetic runs for Richardson.

Siddle to Richardson, FOUR runs, swatted to the rope this time, no drama and no Scorchers entertainment crew this time around on the boundary.
19.3

Siddle to Richardson, SIX runs, thigh high full toss on legs, flicked high and deep over long-on. Rashid tries to knock this back in but a member of the dance/cheerleader/entertainment team tries to go for glory taking somewhat of a crowd catch and they nearly collide. Rashid wants to know what on earth is going on? Not quite a Joe the Cameraman moment, but the Scorchers entertainment guy is hot-tailing it out of the ground now.

Vysakh: "Once Scorchers were the mighty one, with Klinger at the start with Marsh brothers in the middle and Cartwright and Turner to finish things off, now they just seem toothless."

Siddle to Jordan, OUT, yorker angled into Jordan backing away, caroms off Jordan's toes back into the stumps. Scorchers really limping to the end here.

Siddle to Agar, 1 run, yorker on off, driven back down the pitch, Siddle misses flicking this back onto the non-striker's stumps with Jordan well out.
