That wraps up an incredibly easy win for the Scorchers to move into top spot with a nine wicket win. They've assured themselves a home semi-final and possibly of top place if they can win their final match.

Mitchell Marsh batted well for 64 but Man of the Match goes to Nathan Coulter-Nile for his brilliant spell of 3 for 9 to go with two excellent run outs.

Thanks for your company tonight, please join us again tomorrow night for the Renegades against the Heat from Docklands. Good night
