SIX! Jhye Richardson to Josh Philippe. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Biggest six of the night to finish things off. Stylish end from Josh Philippe, who cannons this over mid wicket to send it onto the roof.Completely one-sided match. The Scorchers were never in the game at all tonight. They weren't able to put any pressure on the Sixers in the chase, and that was down to the incredible knock from Josh Philippe. It was as if he was batting on a different track. A brutal unbeaten 81 helped Sydney chase it down with five overs to spare. A lot to think about for the Scorchers after tonight.The BBL will be back tomorrow, with the Renegades taking on the Thunder. Join us again for that.

APPEAL! Jhye Richardson to Josh Philippe. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front flick, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Richardson, appeal made for L.B.W. A shout for leg before, but Philippe gets his pads outside the line of off stump. Good decision from the umpire.

FOUR! Jhye Richardson to Josh Philippe. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Front leg out the way, and Philippe wallops it over the legside for four. Scores are level.

OUT! Caught. Chris Jordan to James Vince. Half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, missed to wicketkeeper, by Inglis. Vince isn't too happy with this. There is a noise as it goes through to the keeper, who takes a wonderful catch low to his left. The third umpire is used to check if the ball carried, which it did. May have been bat on ground, or the ball clipping the stumps, but it didn't look like he hit it.

He is unstoppable this evening. Down the pitch he comes, and he smokes it over extra cover for a huge six. The Sixers aren't far away now.

OUT! Caught. Tom Curran to Fawad Ahmed. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Henriques. Clever from Curran, but Fawad did enough damage in the over anyway. Pace taken off, he is through the shot way too early, and dinks it into the hands of mid off.A below par total, but a bit of momentum gained in the last over for Perth. The Sixers were brilliant with the ball, and in the field, with contributions from all the bowlers. The Scorchers lost early wickets, and struggled to recover from that. A tough target to defend, but it's a slow outfield, and it can still go either way.
19.5

FOUR! Tom Curran to Fawad Ahmed. Half volley, middle stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Brilliant from Fawad Ahmed. He shuffles outside leg, and lifts a drive over mid off for a one bounce four! This is getting the Scorchers back into the contest.

FREE HIT. SIX! Tom Curran to Fawad Ahmed. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Blimey, what a strike! Right in the slot, a flowing swing of the bat, and it pings off the middle of the bat for six more.

SIX! Tom Curran to Fawad Ahmed. Slower ball beamer, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control to long on for 1 run. They're handy. It slips out the back of the hand, and loops up into a juicy one for Fawad to go after. Blasted over long on for six, and it's been called a no-ball, too.

Ben Dwarshuis to Fawad Ahmed. Leg cutter length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on for 1 run, dropped catch by Abbott. It should be all over. Fawad doesn't pick the change in pace, totally mis-hits, but Abbott shells it running in from the long on boundary. Poor miss.

OUT! Caught. Ben Dwarshuis to Jhye Richardson. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, top edge in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by O'Keefe. These Scorchers batsmen keeping hitting it right down the throat of the deep fielders. The short ball gets a little big on Richardson, he cannot keep it down, and it flies down to fine leg for the catch. Awkwardly taken by O'Keefe, but he holds on.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Sean Abbott to Chris Jordan. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short mid wicket, by Abbott. Wickets are tumbling. Jordan was the last hope for any quick runs at the back end, and he just hits this one straight up. Abbott has to get to this after his follow-through, settles underneath, and pouches.

OUT! Caught. Tom Curran to Ashton Agar. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep backward square leg, by Dwarshuis. The Scorchers are crumbling here. Curran picks up his second. Agar clips it quite nicely off the hip, but it was as if he was giving catching practice. Shovelled away to deep backward square for an easy grab.

APPEAL! Ben Manenti to Ashton Agar. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to backward point for no runs, fielded by Dwarshuis, appeal made for L.B.W. An ambitious appeal here. Clearly sliding a long way past the leg stump. The umpire wasn't interested.

OUT! Caught. Ben Manenti to Cameron Green. Off break full toss, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Dwarshuis. Dreadful delivery, but it gets the breakthrough for the Sixers. The eyes lit up for Green, and he wanted to plant it into the stands. He didn't get the right connection, though. High off the bat, and it loops down the throat of deep square leg.

Start of Perth Scorchers Innings. Welcome to Match 2 of BBL09. Sydney Sixers have won the toss and elected to bowl first. The tournament got off to a terrific start yesterday, with the Thunder showing early signs of what could be a successful campaign for them. Hopefully the cricket on show can be of similar standard tonight. The Scorchers finished bottom of the points table last year, so they have something to prove. The Sixers will want to go a step further than the semi final they reached last time out. Whatever the result, it should be an entertaining one tonight.

SIX! Jhye Richardson to Josh Philippe. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Biggest six of the night to finish things off. Stylish end from Josh Philippe, who cannons this over mid wicket to send it onto the roof.Completely one-sided match. The Scorchers were never in the game at all tonight. They weren't able to put any pressure on the Sixers in the chase, and that was down to the incredible knock from Josh Philippe. It was as if he was batting on a different track. A brutal unbeaten 81 helped Sydney chase it down with five overs to spare. A lot to think about for the Scorchers after tonight.The BBL will be back tomorrow, with the Renegades taking on the Thunder. Join us again for that.
