That's it from us today. Come back tomorrow for some more BBL action. Take care!

Man of the Match is Jason Roy: "We've worked hard since we've been here. A couple of times we've been unlucky. We didn't want to use the Power Surge in case we lost quick wickets and didn't want to create a panic. We've worked hard in the change rooms and are getting our rewards now. It's a long tournament. We've got five good games under our belt and hopefully are peaking at the right time."

7.09 pm One-way traffic from start to finish. Scorchers absolutely wallop the Hurricanes. Lifeless with the bat for much of the first innings, lifeless in the field as well, Hurricanes were never in this match at any stage. Scorchers on the flip side were ruthless with bat and ball. Only criticism is that they didn't finish off the match sooner considering they had so many wickets in hand.

Meredith to Roy, 2 runs

dropped! Short on the body, pulls this flat to deep fine leg. Lamichhane can't corral this coming to him flat at shin height five yards in from the rope. To make matters worse he can't locate the ball after it clangs off his body as the carom shoots 15 yards in front of him. By the time he finally realizes where the ball is, Roy is coming back for the second and easily beats a relay back to McDermott.

Boland to Roy, 1 run

good length ball tapped through the ring.

Comfortably the highest opening stand of the season, the partnership ends two short of equaling the best stand for any wicket in BBL 2020-21. Maxwell and Pooran put on 125 together for the Stars earlier this year.

Boland to Livingstone, OUT

fuller on fifth stump, Livingstone tries to flick this over the leg side rope once more but gets under this too much and skies it to deep square leg. Malan gets into position 15 yards in from the rope and crouches down to take this in front of his chest with palms facing out.
