Scorecard
The Perth Scorchers' struggles continue in this year's Big Bash. Their batting performances haven't been up to the mark so far in the tournament as they were carried by Mitchell Marsh's valiant half-century, alongside Cameron Bancroft who got the Scorchers to a reasonable total of 152. Perhaps they did fall short by 15-20 runs but did well enough to give the bowlers something to bowl at.

The Scorchers bowlers hit their mark early on as Jason Behrendorff got the wicket of Alex Hales in the first over. Medium pacer, Aaron Hardie did well to dismiss Usman Khawaja and turn the game in Perth's favour after some poor umpiring, but it was the 75-run stand between Callum Ferguson and Oliver Davies that got Sydney Thunder back into the game. The skipper, Ferguson stayed there till the end after being dropped twice and played a captain's knock alongside Ben Cutting, as the two experienced Australian's saw the game out for the Sydney Thunders, who win their second game of the tournament.

Sydney skipper, Callum Ferguson picked up the Man of the Match award for his match-winning knock as he remained unbeaten on 63.

Sydney Thunders won by 7 wickets.

We'll be back tomorrow as the BBL action continues, that's it for now!
Thank you for joining us. 




19.3 Andrew Tye to Ben Cutting, FOUR! Full toss outside off stump and Cutting finishes things off with a flourish! He gets down on one knee and slams that one past extra cover for four. The Scorchers remain without a victory this season! 
19.2 Andrew Tye to Ben Cutting, dug into the track and that one gets through quite quickly. Cutting is taken by surprise and hurriedly manages to get out of the way of that one! Good change up by Tye!
19.1 Andrew Tye to Ben Cutting, FOUR! Short, wide and punished! Poor from Tye and that allows Cutting to camp on the back foot and clobber it past the sweeper at deep point for four. Just one needed now!
Jhye Richardson will be disappointed with his second spell as he was ruthlessly taken on by Ben Cutting! Can Andrew Tye pull off a miraculous last over?

Sydney Thunders need 5 runs of the last over and it's their game to lose from here!

18.5 Jhye Richardson to Ben Cutting, slower delivery that ends up as a low full toss outside off stump. Cutting stoops down low and powers the ball towards the right of the fielder at long on for  a brace
18.4 Jhye Richardson to Ben Cutting, banged into the track at the batsman on middle and off stump. Cutting is taken aback by the change in length and decides to duck underneath that one!
18.3 Jhye Richardson to Ben Cutting, FOUR! SHOT! Half volley outside off stump. Cutting clears his front foot and absolutely crunches that one past the sweeper at deep point for a boundary! Target into single digits now!
18.2 Jhye Richardson to Ben Cutting, another off pace delivery on a length outside off stump. Cutting goes deep into his crease and muscles it down the ground towards mid off where a misfield allows a couple of runs
18.1 Jhye Richardson to Callum Ferguson, back of the hand slower delivery on a full length outside off stump. Ferguson reaches out for it and stabs it towards deep point for one
That was a really impressive by Fawad Ahmed! He's just given three runs of it, which is priceless at this stage. It's a fabulous comeback by the leg spinner after being expensive in his first three overs. Perth Scorchers have a glimmer of hope!

Jhye Richardson is back into the attack.

Thunder need 15 runs of 12 balls.
