Scorecard summary
Perth Scorchers189/4(20 overs)
Adelaide Strikers91(18.3 overs)

Adelaide Strikers never got the chase going and they have played the last game of the tournament. Going in with four spinners, couple of early wickets while batting. A lot will be discussed by the Strikers today. Scorchers, on the other hand got everything ticking today. If they continue this form, they might go one better than their performance last year. Join us for the last round-robin fixure tomorrow, which is also a 'winner qualifies' game. Good bye from all of us here
