On the very first ball of the 4th over, Inglis was cleaned up by Wes Agar. The dismissal of Scorchers’ wicketkeeper was followed by the batting collapse as the whole team got out on 94. Liam Livingstone was the highest scorer for Scorchers with 22 off 24 balls.

For Strikers, all the five bowlers – Daniel Worrall (2/29), Peter Siddle (2/23), Wes Agar (2/16), Rashid Khan (2/18), and Danny Briggs (2/8) – picked up two wickets apiece.

Earlier, Strikers’ opener Phil Salt smashed a dazzling half-century to put his side in a commanding position. Salt slammed four sixes in his 51 from 31 balls as Strikers posted 165/8 in their allotted 20 overs.

After the Englishman’s onslaught, star bowler Rashid contributed with a late cameo of 29 from 13 balls.

For the Scorchers, pacer Jhye Richardson picked up three wickets for 30 in his quota of 4 overs. Apart from Richardson, all-rounder Mitchell Marsh and Andrew Tye claimed two scalps each.
