The Perth Scorchers won the toss and chose to bat first, and they got off to a fantastic start. Meanwhile, the action has been reduced to 18 overs per side due to rain. As play resumed, the Scorchers lost their 1st wicket when Kurtis Patterson 19 off 14, fell short of Thunder’ Gurinder Sandhu’s brilliant delivery. The next batsmen, Cameron Bancroft and Colin Munro remained strong for the team to post a good total for the rivals well before Chris Green struck Bancroft for 30 off 31 to break the establishing partnership.
In meantime, Sandhu once again into the attack to pick Colin Munro 18 off 20, Laurie Evans 20 off 18, and Aaron Hardie 4 off 5 to register 4-wickets to his name. Saqib Mahmood made another breakthrough for Thunder as Ashton Turner 8 off 4, who failed to carry the momentum.
