length on the stumps, he stays back and clubs it over the bowler's head to have some cheer at the finish, ending with a boundary
11.01pm Comprehensive win for the Scorchers, who are through to the final, yet again. They've beaten the Heat by 49 runs (DLS method), which is a massive margin in an 18-over game. Gnasher will be back with you for the presentations.
"We've played a lot of good cricket," says Player of the Match Liam Livingstone. "Think we deserve to be there."
Ashton Turner: "It doesn't always happen like this but great when it does. I wasn't required to do much. I thought we were clinical tonight. To put on a performance like that is very pleasing. The way we approached the game was excellent, there were so many things going on during the week away from cricket. They [Sixers] are a quality team and we have a lot of respect for them. We'll have to come well prepared. We can't wait for Saturday night."
I'll wrap things up there for tonight. Thanks for joining us and we'll see you for the final in a couple of days.
fuller on leg stumps, takes the inside edge to short fine leg
length on the stumps, clears his front leg and swings at it, doesn't connect
short ball again, but down legside
Hardie didn't like that last shot, bangs it in short
shot. Back of a length outside off and he punches on the up over extra cover
Tye drops it at mid-off just behind the bowler. He was actually running in from mid-on. Fuller on off, and he got the toe end to send it steepling up. Tye ran forward and called for it, then clanged it. Might not even have touched it
fuller, goes for the big swing to cow corner but the ball trickles off the inside edge towards midwicket
cut him in half. Back of a length and jagging into him while rising up, Laughlin had no idea about that, he was backing away and just dropped his hands while turning his head away. Brushed his shirt almost on the way to the keeper
a third bouncer, outside off, but this is a bit too short and will be called wide. The batsman did have a waft at it but was nowhere near it
sharp bouncer does the trick. Banged in short of a length and rising up to home in on Morne's chin, he's in a tangle as he fends at it even as he's trying to arch back. The ball lobs up behind him for an easy keeper's catch
length on the stumps moving away, pushes it back to the bowler
full on leg, calmly flicked off his toes through midwicket and gets pulled in just before the boundary line
length ball nips away off the seam, leaves Morne stuck to the crease and feeling for the ball outside off
65 needed off 12, so it's all about how much they can reduce the margin of defeat.
another bouncer, he's late on it and gets a top edge off an attempted pull that lobs up over the keeper's head
Bancroft takes a good catch tumbling forward at deep square leg. Another short ball, this one climbs a bit steeper but after that last six, Bartlett was going to go for it. Doesn't time it as well and the ball is dropping down but Bancroft does well to run forward and take it
bang. Short ball on the stumps, he's cleared his front leg out and had a baseball slug at it, connected like a home run and sent over deep midwicket
driven to long-on's left
dropped at deep midwicket. Slightly shorter and he rocks back to pull it, the fielder is running to his right and gets there, but can't hold on to the ball. Plops out of his hand and goes over the boundary. Livingstone the man. He's holding his thumb too after that, might have injured it.
