Jason Roy is Man of the Match: It's been a huge couple of days. Fortunate to be Man of the Match. Everyone contributed to that win. Going further now, bigger scores are needed. After the start we had, people were a bit down, but to turn it around and come back is an incredible feeling. It's credit to the big characters in our dressing room. We've adapted very well so far. The sprinklers are coming off on us! Winning those games in Perth, with the facilities there, it's quite easy. But going around the grounds and to keep on it was very good.

Perth Scorchers are now top of the table. Early on in the tournament they were down at the other end. Now, they are absolutely purring. Jason Roy with a half-century. Colin Munro, even when he's batting down the order, is proving effective. But the key to this unit is their bowling attack, led by Jhye Richardson and Andrew Tye. They had already qualified for the knockouts and they look very very dangerous.

Richardson to Hinchliffe, 1 run, whips it to the deep midwicket fielder. And that's that.
19.5
1lb
Richardson to Cartwright, 1 leg bye, shifts his plans after four yorkers go completely awry and targets the batsman's head with a bouncer. And it's a quick one too. Cartwright tries to pull, but it's on him too soon, hits the glove, then his helmet and results in a single somewhere behind square leg. Quick concussion check and he's okay

Richardson to Cartwright, SIX runs, smashes it over long-on. That's the power the Stars have been looking for at the back end. It's coming all too late though
19.3
1
Richardson to Hinchliffe, 1 run, carves it but straight to the sweeper. Three attempted yorkers, three not quite hitting the mark, still Scorchers ahead
19.2
2
Richardson to Hinchliffe, 2 runs, tries to correct his mistake and goes over cover this time as Richardson misses the blockhole again, but there's not enough power in the shot.

Richardson to Hinchliffe, 2 runs, slices the almost wide yorker away but there's a sweeper protecting the square boundary on the off side.

Hardie to Cartwright, 2 runs, low full toss outside off, he swings it to long-off

Hardie to Hinchliffe, 1 run, short again - but this time it's to his field. There's a man at the sweeper and that's who Hinchliffe finds.

Hardie to Hinchliffe, FOUR runs, hammers it down the ground - too short, too easy, one-bounce four

Hardie to Cartwright, 1 run, low full toss, slogs it away to deep midwicket
18.2

Hardie to Cartwright, SIX runs, attempted yorker goes slightly wrong outside off stump, and he just carves it over the left of long-off. Deep in his crease, full bottom hand power. Outstanding shot.

Hardie to Hinchliffe, 1 run, inside edge onto body and they pinch a quick single before the bowler can run up the pitch and fling a throw at the strikers' end

Tye to Hinchliffe, 1 run, full toss on middle from around the wicket, works it behind square leg

Tye to Larkin, OUT, gone, scooping the ball! Scoreboard pressure gets to him in the end. Might also have been tiring. That combination results in his basically directing the ball off the high part of his bat onto his stumps. A length ball on target. Larkin tries to make too much of it, getting across his stumps and then down on one knee and in the end pays for it.

Tye to Larkin, no run, shapes to upper cut a short ball angled across him, but he doesn't make contact. Throws his head down in disappointment. He knows he missed out on a boundary

Tye to Larkin, 2 runs, low full toss on leg stump, he flicks it through to deep square leg

Tye to Larkin, 2 runs, around the wicket for a short ball devoid of pace. Larkin pulls between midwicket and long-on

Tye to Cartwright, 1 run, slower short ball, which he reads well enough and pulls to long leg

Hardie to Larkin, 2 runs, good effort on the point boundary by Livingstone, diving to stop a well hit cut shot from beating him on his right and going for four

Hardie to Larkin, no run, around the wicket experiment is done. Returns over and nails a yorker just outside off to beat the right-hander
16.4

Hardie to Larkin, FOUR runs, hammers it through the covers. This time the bowler gives him a bit of room too - in addition to what he is creating by clearing the front leg. So all that's left to do is hit the ball as hard as possible and Larkin does
16.3
2
Hardie to Larkin, 2 runs, another one over extra cover, only this time it's more of a splice. Goes high in the air, doesn't go the distance, and it's only two
16.2
4
Hardie to Larkin, FOUR runs, over extra cover! Clears the front leg. Uses the angle of the bowler from around the wicket and clatters it to the boundary
