That's it from the coverage, hope you enjoyed it. Until next time, this is Pragadeesh signing off
Aaron Hardie (Man of the Match) - It's a good wicket. Happy to get the win. I have been batting at no.6 over the years and it was a challenging role but I like batting at no.3 and it's been going well. Three games left in the season and hopefully we win all and get a home final. We are traveling to Adelaide tomorrow and I am looking forward to that match
Perth Scorchers won by 7 wickets
Aaron Hardie 90(62) | Tom Andrews 27(21)
Lance Morris 2-21(4) | Riley Meredith 2-35(4)

The Scorchers once again showed how superior they are at their home turf as they produced an astonishing perfomance to outclass the Hurricanes. The start didn't go their way as Eskinazi and Bancroft fell cheaply but Hardie's aggression and Inglis' calculated risk helped them cross the finish line with minimum fuss

Looked like the Hurricanes' bowlers made a match out of this after two quick wickets upfront but Aaron Hardie played a free-flowing innings to suck all the momentum that the visitors gathered up front. Inglis played a second fiddle to the partnership but his contribution at the other end was immense. Once they negotiated Patrick Dooley, Hardie and Inglis shifted gears and smashed the bowlers all around the park. 

Inglis fell after reaching a half-century but Hardie stayed till the end and remained unbeaten on 90 from 62 deliveries
