Tye claims it himself to round off a four-wicket haul and clinch the match. Fullish length on the stumps, Pope backs away to heave over mid-on but skies it straight over the pitch. Mid-on, midwicket, the keeper all could have come in to pouch it but Tye calls them all off the pocket this adjacent to the pitch.
Second-worst loss by Sixers in BBL history. That's all from us today. Come back tomorrow for a BBL doubleheader. Take care!
Mitchell Marsh is the Man of the Match: "It's great a time to be in Perth!"
7.18 pm Melbourne Renegades have made a habit of being bowled out for under 100 this season to dig themselves a hole at the bottom of the table, but who would have thought the Big Bash table-leading Sydney Sixers would get demolished for a double-digit score tonight? Scorchers were merciless in this contest. Mitchell Marsh was mighty impressive with both bat and ball. Richardson and Tye with a tidy batch of wickets and Roy with some sharp catching in the field. Superb contributions all over from Perth. Sixers were quite competitive the first 10 overs of the match and Lloyd Pope dented the Scorchers after coming on as the X-Factor swap midway through first innings but Marsh sparked Scorchers in the 16th over calling for the Power Surge to kickstart the Scorchers end of innings rally that they carried into the chase.
