That's it from me tonight. Hope you've enjoyed the coverage once again. I'm Peter Della Penna, take care!

Man of the Match is Liam Livingstone: "I think Josh deserves this. We've had a couple of partnerships. He's been unbelievable to bat with and is a special talent. Once he scores runs like that, you're off and away. I've been working on trying to get underneath the ball instead of hitting it to the long boundaries and not be a one-man band, leg-side slogging. Josh takes a lot of pressure off of me."

10:05 pm Absolute shellacking handed out by the Scorchers on the Thunder to win this with 4.3 overs to spare and could've been even more lopsided had Hales been given out first ball opening the match. His half-century only gave a platform for Inglis and Livingstone to assert their dominance in the chase.

Morris to Marsh, 2 runs

full on the legs, clipped behind square and placed well enough to come back for the second to end the match.

Morris to Patterson, 1 run

full on off, pushed for a sharp run to mid-off.

Morris to Livingstone, OUT

length ball on off, tries to end the match with a six but instead picks out deep midwicket. Got the elevation but not the distance. Caught five yards inside the rope.
