Colin Munro 45 (26) | Mark Steketee 1/35 (2.3)

The Scorchers have made a statement here. With 4 forced changes in the side, they have won this game with ease. An absolute all round and dominant performance from them. They restricted the Heat to a total they can chase after a great start to their innings and chased it down with ease.

They lost a wicket early on, but Bancroft and Hardie played a wonderful innings after that. Both of them scored half centuries and got a 111 run partnership in which won the game for them. Hardie got out to a run-out out of nowhere at 57. 

Bancroft scored 76 and stayed on till the end to make sure their victory. He was helped by his captain who scored 23 off just 12 ball and finished the game quickly.

The bowlers had no answer to Bancroft or Hardie who took the game away from them. Steketee and Kuhnemann got a wicket each but in vain as they all were expensive today and could not defend 171. The Scorchers scored it with 21 balls to spare.
