The Perth Scorchers continued their resurgence with a second major win in a row, this time dominating the leading Sydney Sixers an 86-run win

The Scorchers got off to a bad start to the season but have now won three straight wins after reigning champion Sixers collapsed 5/30 on the way to a third worst total in franchise history and didn’t hit a single six in their innings

After losing the bat flip, the Scorchers scored a strong 4/183 against Colin Munro after half a century and Mitch Marsh Munro hit 50 of 34 before Marsh hit what was arguably the best of his nine 50s out of 54 BBL games and finished with 57 * out of 27 deliveries

It was just the start of a sensational man-of-the-match night for Marsh, who slipped up before getting the all-important wicket from Jordan Silk for a golden duck, ending 1/12 of two overs / p>

This wicket was in the midst of a four wicket and 14 run collapse that the Sixers – now with five wins and three losses – would never recover from

The Scorchers started slowly and steadily, with Liam Livingstone falling back 16 of 13 in the fourth game. They fought back with Colin Munro and Jason Roy, both of whom were solidly building

Then the Sixers stunned commentators and rivals with an unprecedented X-Factor replacement after 10 overs – taking from Ben Dwarshuis, their leading wicket taker for the competition, and replacing him with spinner Lloyd Pope Dwarshuis who had one for 12 runs bowled before he took off

Pope was immediately monstered for six by a big hit from Colin Munro, who got his 50 of 33 balls right on the next ball. Pope hit back immediately afterwards and dismissed Munro, who got a hit on the side of the leg

His stellar impact continued in his second run when he caught Jason Roy off the deep back field for 27 of 31 minutes. He finished with 2/13 of two overs

Early reports said the Sixers made the substitution on tactical grounds, but it was revealed in the second innings that Dwarshuis had a groin problem that may have forced the swap

After Munro and Roy left, Mitch Marsh and Josh Inglis were the new men at the crease, taking over the power surge early in the 16th century with the Scorchers 3-107

It paid off immediately when Dan Christian was run over 17 times. Mitch Marsh wasn’t done there yet and started 13 from the next to compile 30 from the Power Surge – the best of the tournament so far

And he almost cleared the referee with a missile of a shot right across the ground, which luckily hit the center stump – leaving the bowler Jake Ball relieved that Marsh had done no damage to the scoreboard and the referee relieved, that it did no harm to his person!

Inglis crushed 20 of 12 before getting caught in the deep side of the leg at the end of a 19-run O’Keefe

Marsh finished 57 balls out of 27 after hitting a 25-ball fifty. The Scorchers made it 3/183, with commentators considering 180 “par” for the wicket – though it soon turned out to be way out of bounds Reach the Sixers would turn out

The Sixers got off to a horror start when Jason Behrendorff held Josh Philippe back for 5 out of 6 at the end of the second round

Then Richardson had in third over Richardson James Vince for a duck (3), the Sixers already 2/10 and in dire straits

They stabilized thanks to a composed performance by Jack Edwards who scored 24 out of 20 before opening a tough opportunity for Andrew Tye, who was dropped by the goalkeeper, his luck continued when some edges fell safely onto empty turf , but Edwards couldn’t make the most of his chances

Tye, on the other hand, made up for the drop when Daniel Hughes was caught on point (14 of 12) on the next delivery


The Sixers were 3-44 after seven overs and tumbling – the start of a horror breakdown

When Silk set off on a golden duck caught at the third man after a savage slap on a wide Mitch Marsh ball, the Sixers were in all sorts of arguments at 4/47 out of eight overs

Then they lost Dan Christian for 0 out of 2, which means the Sixers – at 5/42 – had lost 3/8 of 12 deliveries. Brathwaite fell next for 2 (3), with the Sixers 6/58 losing four had lost for 14!

Marsh thought he had his second wicket when Steve O’Keefe deflected the ball towards the goalkeeper – but the umpire didn’t rule it out and reruns seemed to show that the ball had instead hit his body instead of hitting

Edwards was finally sacked for 44 of 38 after a scratchy inning Jason Roy took his third catch of the night to leave the Sixers 7/74

Andrew Tye brought his numbers to 3/111 overs after just 2 when he took out Steve O’Keefe’s stumps (16 of 14), the Sixers 8/87

Richardson followed suit by bagging a third wicket of his own Jake Ball fell on 4 after his stumps tapered

Richardson finished the match 3/15 out of four overs while Tye finished the match with a catch-and-bowling to finish the sixers with just 97 and get personal numbers of 4-20 out of 3 4 overs
