Great win for the Scorchers. They get another home game on Tuesday and they can set their season up. The Thunder will regain Daniel Sams for the Sydney Derby in Canberra but they will take heart from running the Scorchers so close despite not playing anywhere near their best.

Thanks for your company. Join us again tomorrow as the Heat host the Sixers on the Gold Coast.

Ashton Turner: "The Thunder to their credit really challenged us and we had to go plan B and C at times. But it's nice to walk off a winner. We know Richo is a superstar. We're not surprised by his performances. He's coming back from shoulder surgery and we know his best is international quality."

Jhye Richardson is player of the match for his outstanding all round performance.

Perth Scorcher win by 17 runs. They have won four in a row and got themselves back into the tournament. Jhye Richardson produced an outstanding all round display. His 20 not out off 8 balls was critical for the Scorchers and then he cleaned up with 4 for 24. Sam Billings threatened with a superb knock but he ran out of partners.
