Hobart Hurricanes

7.45pm That is that. The Hurricanes knock out the Scorchers to make the final. No D'Arcy Short, no problem for the Hurricanes. Electric fifties from Wade and McDermott launched them to 210 for 4. The Scorchers then wilted under scoreboard pressure and were ultimately bowled out in 17.5 overs. Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. And thanks for your company and comments. Do come back for the second semi-final. This is Deivarayan Muthu signing off. Cheers

"It was a clinical performance," Bailey says. "We're in the position we deserve to be. I've got no idea [training for the final]. As a group, that Scorchers team deserves respect. To beat them we've got to put our best team and we did it."

Matthew Wade is the Player of the Match for his 71 off 45 balls

17.5DT Christian to TT Bresnan, OUT, No run, Dan Christian wraps up Hobart Hurricanes' win and makes another tournament final. We will have a new champion this season. Dipping slower cutter, Bresnan gets a taste of his own medicine. He does not spot the change-up, plays across the line, and is trapped in front.
17.4DT Christian to TT Bresnan, 2 runs, Bresnan backs away outside leg and top-edges a hook in front of deep square. He hares across for the second, pulls out a full-length dive, and makes his crease.
17.3DT Christian to MG Johnson, 1 run, back of a length and outside off, flat-batted to long-off.
17.2DT Christian to MG Johnson, No run, short and zipping away outside off, Johnson can't hook it away again.
17.1DT Christian to MG Johnson, No run, bouncer on middle, 136ks, Johnson gives himself room. Swings and only collects fresh air.
End of over 17. 12 runs this over. 134/9 after 101 balls.

Sharad S: "This is why the BBL needs to follow the IPL format. Scorchers played excellent cricket throughout the tournament and yet one bad day at the office today will knock them out. The Hurricanes barely managed to qualify thanks to the Brisbane Heats and now look all set to go to the finals. The top two teams need to get another chance for topping the group."

Scorchers Fan: "@Ashwin, bro keep calm and watch Scorchers Win"

Davros: "Is it ridiculous that the Marsh brothers play a semi final without any lead up games & d'arcy short plays all lead up & no semi?"

Stuart: "It's alright saying Perth will bat deep but it's a test line up not a 20/20 line up. There's not many who can smash a quick 50 off 20 balls. They'll fall short by 40+ runs but not be all out "

Ashwin: "@Yash - Brother you gonna be broke."

End of over 1. 5 runs this over. 5/0 after 5 balls.
