10.36pm: That brings us to the end of this game's coverage. Scorchers were pretty much in control throughout and have gone to the top of the BBL 2021 table now. They're certainly looking like the team to beat. They have a gun bowling attack and batters who have stepped up as needed. Hurricanes have lots to ponder. On that thought, this is Saurabh Somani signing off, on behalf of Thilak too.

Kurtis Patterson is the Player of the Match: It's a bit of a weird one with Mitch and Josh Inglis coming back, I thought I would only get the first two games, but I'm really stoked they stuck with me. (On his innings) I tried to hit sixes off the short side of the boundary. Just got a little bit sore, took the safe option (not fielding in the second innings).

10.30pm: A comprehensive win for the Scorchers, by 42 runs. Kurtis Patterson controlled their batting with a superb 78 off 48, whose value was shown when the Hurricanes found the going so tough in their chase. Ashton Agar's cameo 30* off 11 was very valuable too. The Scorchers bowlers then turned up the heat on the Hurricanes. They kept things tight, they kept their lines probing, and they kept the batters guessing with their variety. The Scorchers have outclassed the Hurricanes.

Tye to Lamichhane, 2 runs

backing away again, throws his bat into a pull shot that goes straight past the bowler. No timing though so it's stopped easily enough beyond the bowler

dug in short to the No.11, who backs away and tries to pull. Doesn't get anywhere near the ball though

Agar to Parker, 1 run

length ball on the stumps, goes across and tucks it through square leg. Parker might not have realised that was the last ball because he was looking for the second. He'll keep strike with that single though

Agar to Lamichhane, 1 run

makes room to this full ball on off and drives it to deep cover

Devon: "Hurricanes aren't going to go anywhere this season with the fabled opening pair of Darcy short and Matt Wade looking no better than any of the bunch of relatively inexperienced local kids most of the team seems to be made up of. Been a few games now and they seem bad to an extent that you wouldn't imagine they could be before the start of the season."

Agar to Ellis, OUT

and he's stumped this time. Was coming down the track while giving himself room, so Agar kept it wide outside off. Too far for the batter to reach and Inglis whips the bails off in a flash.
