10:30 pm That's it from me tonight. Thanks for tuning in. Come back tomorrow for coverage of the doubleheader beginning at Adelaide Oval between the Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Sixers. I'm Peter Della Penna. Take care!

Man of the Match Liam Livingstone: "We needed this. I'm trying to work on my game to open up the off side as well but I'm sticking with what works over the last couple of years. [Playing the Heat] is a big game. Hopefully we can keep playing well, keep winning and build up momentum as the tournament goes on."

10:26 pm Scorchers draw back level with the Heat and Hurricanes on six points. Meanwhile the Renegades hopeless season continues as they remain winless from seven matches. Just not enough on the board for the hosts with the short square boundaries at Geelong.

Gleeson to Bancroft, 1 wide

full and swinging almost off the pitch. Umpire Wilson causes some confusion only extending one arm because he has Gleeson's jumper tucked under the other but it's a wide and not a no ball.

Gleeson to David, OUT

the Singapore international tries to end the match in one blow, instead done in by a slower ball on a length, mistimes this to Webster charging in from deep midwicket, takes the catch in stride at rib height.

Kane Richardson to Bancroft, no run

good length ball pushed to backward point. David wanted a run but was sent back. Samit Patel needed a direct hit at the non-striker's end but his throw is in two minds pulling Richardson well away from the stumps.

Target now under a run a ball.
