That's an absolute cracker of a match, you can't ask for more from a T20 game. Hughes and Reardon tried their best and at the final moments it was Ludeman who almost took the match away from the Scorchers but can't finish it off with the last ball though able to keep the audience at the edge of their seat. Perth with this win now moves to the second place. This match will be remembered for the fastest BBL hundred by Craig Simmons and also maximum number of sixes in a BBL match. Craig Simmons adjudged Man of the Match. Thanks for joining, stay cool. Cheers!
