Scorchers win by seven wickets with 12 balls to spare. It wasn't a cruise but the Scorchers did what they needed to. Inglis was good early and Bosisto paced his innings well. Turner absorbed a lot of balls but they were happy to ensure Rashid Khan did not get a look at a new batsman at any stage. The Scorchers get their first win of the season. It was set up by their bowlers and fieldsmen. The Strikers have some work to do after losing two in a row. That was a panicked batting display. They lost 7 for 21 in 41 balls and Rashid Khan and Cam Valente saved them from a record low total.

Prasu: "Player of the match ? Behrendroff or Richardson ?"

Jhye Richardson is Player of the match for his 3 for 7. "I'm pretty stoked to put a performance on the board and get a win on the board. It's a 14-game season, we're happy to get the win and move on from here. We worked out that straight and back of a length on this wicket was tough to score." That concludes our coverage from Optus Stadium. There is a WBBL match coming up between the Scorchers and the Heat which we will have the live scores for. Please join us tomorrow night for more BBL action as the Sydney Sixers face the Melbourne Stars at the SCG. Until then, goodnight from Perth.

Rajk: "We all know Scorchers need to open the account first in the table, but caption knock with a bit of higher strike rate would be great! " I think he's trying but it has been difficult batting tonight.
