The Scorchers end the year on a high. The Strikers will be frustrated by that sub par performance. Hope you have a great New Year's Eve. Looking forward to a positive 2021. Stay safe and join us in the New Year.

Scorchers win their first game of the season by 7 wickets with 14 balls to spare. Roy set the tone but Inglis was flawless in that chase. Took all the pressure off Marsh who also played well. The Strikers just didn't have enough runs.

Jhye Richardson is Player of the Match for his 3 for 19. Richardson: "I think we owe it to our fans to put a performance on the board like we did tonight."
