9.40pm Phew! What a match, what a finish! Scorchers nearly batted themselves out of this contest but they scrape through in the end in the tightest of finishes. And in his WACA farewell, Brad Hogg will be left ruing that catch he put down to reprieve Ashton Turner. Turner was on 16, Scorchers were two down, and the required rate was mounting. Had that catch been taken, this could have been such a different story. But that's not to be and Scorchers go top of the table after a record chase in front of a record crowd. That's all we have. Thanks for joining us, folks!

"To come back with the bat was unbelievable," says Ashton Agar. "Ashton Turner played an incredible innings. It's what you dream of as a kid - a four off the last bal, a hundred - these are the kind of things you dream of. We'll take great confidence from this performance."

19.5Mohammad Nabi to AC Agar, 1 run, No, we won't. A full toss to end it all that's driven wide of long-off and that seals a hard-earned win for the home team much to the delight of a record local crowd.
19.4Mohammad Nabi to TH David, 1 run, drills this from outside off down to long-off. Not clean connection as he chops into the ground but that will do.
19.3Mohammad Nabi to AC Agar, 1 run, comes down the track and whips this towards wide long-on who's on to in a flash. Only time for a single.
19.2Mohammad Nabi to AC Agar, No run, fuller ball, pushed into the cover fielder again. Pressure building again.
19.1Mohammad Nabi to AC Agar, No run, slaps at a wide fuller delivery and hits it straight to cover. Dot.

End of the Powerplay. Scorchers badly need to get a move on.

Nand: "Agree that Willey is not a great option. But he isn't capable of hitting too hard either these days. His powerplay SR is only about 100. And last 2 games, he's just been eating balls. Also, I believe Willey's inability to attack is adding undue pressure on Klinger."
