19.5Ellis to Richardson

19.4Ellis to Richardson

2
That settles it. On middle, heaved through mid-wicket for a couple. 17 needed from 2 and the Hurricanes have sealed this.

19.3Ellis to Richardson

4
FOUR! Victory is difficult but a Super Over is possible! A length ball, on middle, Jhye pulls it behind square leg and finds the boundary! 19 needed from 3!

19.2Ellis to Richardson

6
SIX! Just over! Is there still life in this game? A length ball, on middle, Richardson swings hard and clears a leaping long on! 23 needed from 4 now.

18.7Boland to Kelly

0
On middle and leg, worked towards fine leg but the keeper intercepts.

18.2Boland to Richardson

WIDE. Down the leg side, miles down the leg side, left alone. Well collected by the keeper.

18.1Boland to Richardson

6
SIX! A length ball, down the leg side, Richardson swings hard and clears backward square leg in the deep!

17.6Ellis to Richardson

1
Played to the point region by the batsman. One run added to the total.

17.5Ellis to Richardson

2
IN THE AIR... NO ONE TAKES IT! Tea pots boiling. The bowler is not happy at all. A length ball, around middle, Richardson swings this high in the air and has not got any distance on it. Long on gets across while mid off runs back. Now, Caleb Jewell at long on feels that mid off will take the catch and does not attempt. The ball lands near the feet of Jewell. Two runs taken.

17.4Ellis to Richardson

0
Short and outside off, cut straight to point.

17.3Ellis to Kelly

1
DIRECT HIT WOULD HAVE HAD JHYE. A length ball, outside off, Kelly looks to flick but gets a thick inside edge onto his pads. The ball lands just beside the pitch and the batsmen go for the quick single. Ellis runs towards the ball, picks it up, dives and has an under-arm shy at the striker's end but misses. Richardson was gone for all money.

17.2Ellis to Agar

W
OUT! Caught. Everything that Short has touched tonight has turned gold. A short ball, around leg, Agar backs away and looks to pull but the connection is pretty limp. D'Arcy is waiting patiently at long on and snaps the catch.

17.1Ellis to Agar

4
INSIDE EDGE, FOUR! A length ball, around middle, Agar looks to pull but gets a thick inside edge which misses the leg stump and beats short fine leg.

16.6Rogers to Agar

1
On middle, pushed through mid on for one more. Rogers finishes with 4-0-31-1. That one wicket which has guaranteed that Hobart win this game.

16.5Rogers to Richardson

1
Now, how lucky is that? Jhye gets a long way across to his right and while flicking the ball, slips. Luckily for him, he has gone well across the stumps, so he does not touch them! The ball goes to deep square leg and a single is taken.

16.4Rogers to Agar

1
Short and outside off, punched towards cover for a quick run.

16.3Rogers to Agar

0
A length ball, outside leg, Agar misses his tuck and is hit on the pads.

16.2Rogers to Marsh

W
OUT! CAUGHT! That is a stunning catch and a big wicket from Caleb Jewell. A low full toss, on off, Marsh heaves this across the line but is not quite able to get any elevation. The ball flies towards deep mid-wicket but dips onto the fielder. However, Caleb Jewell keeps his eyes on the ball, charges in and takes a very good catch, inches above the ground! The crowd is silenced and that, probably, is the game. Marsh departs for a well-made 48 but with 52 needed from 22 balls, you know where this is heading...

16.1Rogers to Agar

1
A short ball, around middle, pulled down to long on for a single.

15.6Boland to Agar

1
The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot. The batsmen have run through for a single. 12 from the over, 24 from the last 2!

15.5Boland to Agar

0
Outside off, on a length, Agar looks to steer it to third man but misses. The bowler is appealing for a catch but no one else is interested.

15.4Boland to Marsh

1
Make that 11. Full and outside off, driven through the covers for a single.

15.3Boland to Marsh

4
FOUR! Cracking shot. A length ball outside off, Marsh punches this behind point and gets 10 runs from the over!

15.2Boland to David

W
OUT! CAUGHT! Good comeback by the bowler. Boland bends his back and generates steep bounce on the short ball. David looks to punch it off his back foot but gets a top edge. The ball is high in the air but it is only till cover. Clive Rose runs back and takes a good catch. 59 needed from 24 balls now.

15.1Boland to David

6
SIX! HUMONGOUS! No respect for the fast bowler. A length ball, on middle, David comes down the track and pulls it massively over mid-wicket!

14.6Rogers to David

1
Good finish from Rogers here. Full ball on off, driven towards cover for one. 12 from the over and the Scorchers need 65 off the last 5 overs.

14.5Rogers to Marsh

1
Length ball on the body of Marsh, he pulls it towards square leg and gets one.

14.4Rogers to David

SIX! Fetch that, Hurricanes! Full and slower ball on off by Rogers, Marsh clears his front leg and launches it over long on for a maximum.

13.7Ahmad to David

13.4Ahmad to David

Again David goes onto the back foot and this time cuts it towards backward point. Straightaway calls for a couple and gets it.

13.3Ahmad to David

4
EDGED AND FOUR! Flatter and outside off, David looks to rock back and cut but the ball goes off the outside edge and into the third man fence.

13.2Ahmad to David

0
On the pads, David flicks this one towards the man at square leg.

13.1Ahmad to Jordan

W
OUT! CAUGHT! Floated delivery on off, Jordan goes for the wild hoick over long on but he cannot time it well. Short at the boundary line takes an easy catch and half the side is back in the hut for Perth Scorchers. The situation going from bad to worse for them.

12.7Ellis to Jordan

1
Slower one, short in length around off, Jordan steers it through point and collects one. Top over by Ellis, 5 runs and a wicket to break the partnership.
