And that's all she wrote folks. Otago win this one convincingly (if ever there was an understatement) and Perth Scorchers are really under the pump, with their first game being rained out, and now this 62-run loss, so their NRR has taken a hit. Don't stray too far though, as we have just begun live coverage of the second match tonight in Jaipur, with Rajasthan Royals taking on Highveld Lions. But for myself and the scorers, this is Rohan Sharma saying good night, and good luck!

Brendon McCullum, Otago Volts captain: It was unbelievable innings really. I think it is the most amazing batting from our association's history and to it do it on the world stage is phenomenal. It was a real delight for Broom to bat like that. We galloped away at the start, and then finally arranged to get set. I thought Broom and Derek's partnership was crucial. The guys were brilliant and managed to give us an incredible total. We are really going well, as it is 14 wins in a row now. We have a special culture in our team as well so its nice to show that on the international stage. We have some tough opponents coming up so we back ourselves.

Neil Broom, Man of the Match: Yeah we had a slow start. We lost two key wickets there. Derek and I cemented a good partnership and Ryan was special, playing a crucial hand there. It was a pretty flat deck, not a lot of turn, similar to back home. Looking forward to getting back out there in three days time. I know they are all watching (NZ audience), it is late at night there, so nice to put on a show.

And it is all over. Perth Scorchers were never really in it as they settle for a 62-run loss to Otago Volts, with the bowling doing a decent enough job to keep Otago safe. Hilton Cartwright played a good innings under pressure, with an unbeaten 69 off 53 balls, and had good support from Voges, Turner and Triffitt along the way. Ian Butler was the pick of the Otago bowlers with 3 for 47. So Otago's dominant run continues, and they now sit at a clear second with 14 consecutive victories in this format. Only 11 more to go now to reach Sialkot.. Hey, you can never be too positive! Perth will feel remissed by the fact that they ended up on the losing end, despite putting up 180 in their innings.

McMillan to Triffitt, OUT

fuller length ball and Cartwright goes for it, but ends up holing out to long off, but the wicket doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things.
