OUT! Caught. Matthew Kelly to Ben Laughlin. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Livingstone. And finally the Scorchers take the final wicket. Skewed off the bat straight up where Livingstone makes no mistakes. Comprehensive victory for Perth which should have looked a lot more comfortable if not for the last partnership. All the damage was done in the first 11 overs when Brisbane were restricted to 51-7 and they could never recover.Victory for Perth moves them into sixth while Heat have a lot of problems they need to address before the next match.

Matthew Kelly to Zahir Khan. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump backing away pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to short fine leg for 1 run, dropped catch by Ahmed. That was game, set and match right there but Fawad puts it down. He will be hoping it doesn't cost too much.

FOUR! Chris Jordan to Ben Laughlin. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Suddenly runs have started flowing. Even Jordan can't get his yorker spot on and he gets punished. Surely they can't do it, can they?

Matthew Kelly to Zahir Khan. Yorker, down leg side backing away driving, inside edge to point for 1 run, shy attempt by Turner. So unlucky for the bowler. The ball has gone back onto the stumps but not knocked off the bails, even though they lit up. Crazy.

SIX! Fawad Ahmed to Ben Laughlin. Googly length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. How about this for a start. Instantly down the track and launching the ball out of the park.

OUT! Bowled. Fawad Ahmed to Mark Steketee. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to. Does not pick the googly out of the hand. Opens up the offside showing all three stumps to Fawad and the leggie does not miss. Wicket number eight.

W
OUT! Caught. Ben Laughlin to Ashton Agar. Short, down leg side on the front foot pulling, top edge to wicketkeeper, by Peirson. Thin edge through to the keeper and history has been made. The first man to take 100 wickets in the BBL. Congratulations to Ben Laughlin.
18.4
W
OUT! Caught. Josh Lalor to Cameron Bancroft. Slower length ball, middle stump on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Cutting. It has been a real struggle for Bancroft all innings and eventually a piece of poor timing finds the fielder. Clever bowling to take the pace off and make him drag the ball into the legside.
17.4
4
FOUR! Mark Steketee to Cameron Bancroft. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump backing away pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Slapped very hard to the fence. Lots of moving around from Bancroft to try and upset the bowler which is working.
16.1
W
OUT! Caught. Ben Laughlin to Mitchell Marsh. Beamer, wide down leg side on the front foot flick, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Heazlett. Could not have picked out the fielder any better. The length is what was key, full enough to not allow Marsh to generate the elevation required to clear Heazlett. Key wicket at this stage of the game.
15.5
4
FOUR! Josh Lalor to Mitchell Marsh. Full toss, outside off stump moves in front driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. All too easy for someone as strong as Marsh. Juicy full toss which is dispatched back down the ground.
12.4
4
FOUR! Ben Cutting to Cameron Bancroft. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. A rare boundary for the Scorchers, and much needed. Hit straight through the line splitting the two deep fielders.
10.5
W
OUT! Caught. Ben Cutting to Ashton Turner. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Renshaw. All height with no distance. Turner knew he was in trouble as soon as he made contact. Early on the stroke with the ball maybe sticking in the wicket a fraction. Not what Scorchers needed.
5.4
W
OUT! Bowled. Zahir Khan to Josh Inglis. Googly length ball, down leg side down the track driving, missed to. That will do nicely. The wrong-un turning away from the bat and knocking over off stump. Great celebration to go with it too.
4.3
4
FOUR! Josh Lalor to Josh Inglis. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Inglis is hitting them so hard today. Finding the boundary with regularity.
3.3
W
OUT! L.B.W. Zahir Khan to Liam Livingstone. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, hit pad to. More tentative after the boundary and that has cost him. Plodding onto the front foot and trying to play around his pad with the turn. He misses a straight one and up goes the finger.
3.2
4
FOUR! Zahir Khan to Liam Livingstone. Googly length ball, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Given it plenty of long handle early in his innings. No hanging about from Livingstone.
2.1
4
FOUR! Mark Steketee to Josh Inglis. Length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Smoked for four. Wonderful piece of timing and placement.
1.6
4
FOUR! Josh Lalor to Liam Livingstone. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Clubbed over the top. Struggling to find the middle but has enough power to pick up the boundary.
0.6
4
FOUR! Mark Steketee to Josh Inglis. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Not the biggest boundary towards third man and Inglis uses that to his advantage.

FOUR! Chris Jordan to Ben Laughlin. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Suddenly runs have started flowing. Even Jordan can't get his yorker spot on and he gets punished. Surely they can't do it, can they?

OUT! Caught. Liam Livingstone to Josh Lalor. Leg spinner back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Agar. Wickets continue to tumble on the Gold Coast. Lalor the latest to fall, picking out deep midwicket going for the big six.
14.3
W
OUT! Bowled. Fawad Ahmed to Mark Steketee. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to. Does not pick the googly out of the hand. Opens up the offside showing all three stumps to Fawad and the leggie does not miss. Wicket number eight.
12.4
4
FOUR! Jhye Richardson to Mark Steketee. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Slashed off the outer half of the bat. Maybe not the most elegant stroke but useful runs.
11.3
4
FOUR! Ashton Agar to Mark Steketee. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Offered too much width on this occasion. Carved behind point into the gap.
10.6
W
OUT! Caught. Fawad Ahmed to Chris Lynn. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump down the track Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Jordan. All or nothing for the Heat skipper and it ends up being the latter. He was left too much to do by his team and in trying to hit the maximum he picks out Jordan on the edge.
10.3
W
OUT! Bowled. Fawad Ahmed to Ben Cutting. Leg spinner length ball, middle stump backing away pushing, missed to. Things go from bad to worse for the home side. They lose a sixth as Cutting only adds one run to the total. Opening the stumps up to the bowler and not making contact with the ball.
9.2
W
OUT! Caught. Ashton Agar to Jimmy Peirson. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Inglis. Enough turn off the wicket to find the edge. Heat are crumbling here and their captain can only stand and watch it all unfold at the other end.
5.6
W
OUT! L.B.W. Matthew Kelly to Sam Heazlett. Half volley, to leg down the track working, hit pad to. Yorks himself after walking at the bowler. Not able to then get the bat down quickly enough and the ball raps him on the front pad. Heat lose their fourth in the powerplay.
4.6
4
FOUR! Chris Jordan to Chris Lynn. Short, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past deep point for 4 runs.
4.2
4
FOUR! Chris Jordan to Sam Heazlett. Length ball, down leg side on the back foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Off the mark straight away. Tucked off the hip and uses the pace to beat short fine leg.
4.1
W
OUT! Caught & Bowled. Chris Jordan to Matthew Renshaw. Off cutter length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled back to bowler, by Jordan. Stats aren't good when the batting side lose three wickets in the powerplay so Heat are up against it now. It was a superb change of pace first up and totally deceived Renshaw.
3.1
W
OUT! Stumped. Ashton Agar to Max Bryant. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, missed to wicketkeeper, by Inglis. As easy as that. First ball against Agar and Bryant decides to come down the track and look to smack the ball to the fence. He runs straight past it and the keeper does the rest.
2.3
4
FOUR! Jhye Richardson to Chris Lynn. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs. Slapped over the top in style. Lynn is underway with a boundary and the Scorchers will not want to see him do that too much.
2.1
W
OUT! L.B.W. Jhye Richardson to Tom Banton. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, hit pad to. Beaten by the extra pace and zip off the wicket. Skids on and thuds hard into the front pad. They don't come much easier for an umpire.
1.6
4
FOUR! Matthew Kelly to Max Bryant. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Don't need to think about running for those. Smashed back past mid off with incredible power.
