Fall of wickets: 1-84 (Mahela Jayawardene, 11.4 ov), 2-109 (Tim Ludeman, 14.4 ov)
14.4 to TP Ludeman, looks to go across the line at long-on, but gets a top edge that swirls high into the night sky, Joel Paris, running backwards from mid-off, almost had a hash of it, but showed the presence of mind to take it on the rebound. The ball popped out and was on its way down when he quickly recovered to pull it off just as it was about to hit the turf. Should have pouched it in the first attempt, but no damage done. Ludeman's knock is over.. 109/2
11.4 to DPMD Jayawardene, hit high, but the deep midwicket fielder takes an easy catch. Relief writ large on the faces of the Scorchers players. Fine innings ends. It wasn't in the slot for him to play that slog towards the long boundary, ended up dragging it and Harris did well to run in, keep his eye on the ball even as it swirled just a touch, and finally completed an excellent catch. Mahela has done his job though. 84/1

Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Shaun Marsh, 0.5 ov), 2-10 (Marcus Harris, 2.4 ov), 3-30 (Michael Klinger, 3.5 ov), 4-59 (Cameron Bancroft, 7.4 ov), 5-64 (Ashton Agar, 8.5 ov), 6-99 (Ashton Turner, 11.5 ov), 7-134 (Joel Paris, 15.5 ov), 8-134 (David Willey, 16.1 ov), 9-134 (Andrew Tye, 16.3 ov), 10-138 (Brad Hogg, 17.3 ov)
0.5 to SE Marsh, chases a full and wide delivery, Marsh looks to drive on the up but is beaten for pace, only manages to get a thick edge as Ludeman dives full length to his left, is airborne as he pull off that stunner. Massive wicket, the dangerous opening stand has been disturbed early. That will surely lift the Strikers. 4/1
2.4 to MS Harris, top-edges a pull, the ball got big on him but he still went through with the stoke, he was hitting towards the longer boundary as well, but the fielder there hardly had to move. Judged it well. Big wicket, Perth Scorchers under the hammer now. 10/2
7.4 to CT Bancroft, another wicket and the Scorchers are set back further. This was short, but not short enough to play the pull, he only managed to get a top edge courtesy the short-arm jab, the ball took off from length and zipped through as well, the edge flew to third man where Adil Rashid positioned himself well to take an easy catch. 59/4
17.3 to GB Hogg, goes too far across to flick that, but is done in by extra pace as the ball cannons into the leg stump.. 138/10
3.5 to M Klinger, what a ball! The ball drifts in from wide of the crease and skids on, Klinger plays for the turn and pushes outside the line, didn't get to the pitch either as the ball sneaks through bat and pad to hit middle and off. Can it get better for a left-arm spinner? Big, big wicket. Scorchers on the mat now. 30/3
15.5 to JS Paris, cracking ball, and it comes at a time when the Strikers were getting edgy. Paris was eyeing that short boundary over deep midwicket as he walked across to play with a cross bat, the ball was full and just tailed away a wee bit, Paris was playing inside the line as the ball beat the outside edge to hit the stumps.. 134/7
8.5 to AC Agar, the slider goes through that pull and cannons into middle. It was short, sliding in, kept a touch low as well, Agar shaped to pull but missed it completely. It looked like an attempted googly, didn't turn.. 64/5
16.1 to DJ Willey, that is an outstanding catch by Alex Ross. It was short and spinning back in, Willey pulled, but he was hitting towards the bigger boundary, Ross picked it early, ran swiftly to his right and ensured the momentum didn't let him over-run, judged it well in the end. The cameo is over. Game over? Well, can't be sure yet, but Strikers will definitely breathe a huge sigh of relief.. 134/8
16.3 to AJ Tye, hit with the spin towards long-off when Lehmann junior runs forward, covers good ground, dives forward and takes a superb catch. He ensured the ball didn't bobble out as the elbows made contact with the ground. Flat hit, well taken. 134/9
11.5 to AJ Turner, the slog is miscued this time, it was swirling in the air for a long time, the deep midwicket fielder took that one quite easily.. 99/6
