Ball By Ball Commentary

Over 20. 20 runs. Bowler: Mitchell McClenaghan. Perth Scorchers: 4-172(rr 8.60)
20.6 Mitchell McClenaghan to Hilton Cartwright. Yorker, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Ferguson. What a game we have seen here, an unbeaten 137 partnership wasn't enough to pull the Scorchers over the line but Bancroft and Cartwright certianly showed us a valiant effort after the game seemed all but over at 35-4. It was a contrasting tale for the Thunder's bowlers as Sandhu, Ahmed and Nair were all excellent. Green and McClenaaghan however were expensive and let the Scorchers back in with a chance, the fact that Watson didn't bowl meant there was no relief for those expensive overs. A good win for the Thunder though, speared by Khawaja at the top of the line-up in the first innings who excellent innings sent them on their way to a big total. Their third win moves them to within two points of the top four and keeps them in with a shot for qualifying for the later stages. The Scorchers lose their second game but remain joint top of the table and looking pretty, they showed today that even when they look down and out they can put in really gritty perfromances, unfortunately falling just short today. The Thunder win by three runs.
20.5 Mitchell McClenaghan to Hilton Cartwright. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Patterson, mis-fielded by McClenaghan.

20.3 Mitchell McClenaghan to Hilton Cartwright. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to deep cover for 2 runs, fielded by Ferguson.
20.2 SIX! Mitchell McClenaghan to Hilton Cartwright. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Cartwright hits a huge six as he slaps the ball back down the ground, a massive 105 metres and it bounces back off the roof. They're giving themselves a chance here. The ball was caught by long-on after it pinged back off the roof, I don't think that counts though!
20.1 FOUR! Mitchell McClenaghan to Hilton Cartwright. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. Cartwright gets to his 50 with an inside edge as he tries to slog the ball and once again it takes the inside edge and runs down to fine-leg for four.
Over 19. 7 runs. Bowler: Gurinder Sandhu. Perth Scorchers: 4-152(rr 8.00)
19.6 FOUR! Gurinder Sandhu to Cameron Bancroft. Yorker, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs.

17.6 SIX! Chris Green to Cameron Bancroft. Off break half volley, to leg on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. The Scorchers are giving themselves a chance as they get 18 from the final over of spin, Bancroft launching Green into the stands over long-on this time. They still have a lot of work to do, but they're in with a chance with three overs to go.

13.6 FOUR! Chris Green to Cameron Bancroft. Off break half volley, to leg on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

He's played a really good innings while others have lost their wicket around him.
13.5 SIX! Chris Green to Cameron Bancroft. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.

Over 6. Power Play Fielding. 4 runs. Bowler: Gurinder Sandhu. Perth Scorchers: 3-34(rr 5.67)

6.3 OUT! L.B.W. Gurinder Sandhu to Ashton Turner. Yorker, off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad. Sandhu traps Turner plumb in front with a good yorker and the umpire duly raises his finger. The Scorchers are in big trouble here and are three down within the powerplay. It's been a great show of bowling so far from the Thunder, with each bowler picking up a wicket.
6.2 Gurinder Sandhu to Ashton Turner. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to backward point for no runs, fielded by Rohrer.

5.2 OUT! Caught. Chris Green to Michael Klinger. Off break half volley, to leg on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Sandhu. The Thunder get a big second wicket and it's that of Klinger who mis-times a drive over the top and instead spoons it to Sandhu at mid-off. It's just the start the Thunder wanted and the Scorchers will have to rebuild from here and have their middle-order fire later in the innings.
5.1 Chris Green to Michael Klinger. Off break length ball, off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Lenton.
