Chris Morris to Mitchell Marsh. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, to deep backward square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Sandhu. The Scorchers crush the Thunder to win with 27 balls remaining. What a victory that was. Liam Livingstone and Josh Inglis put on a mammoth opening partnership, both hitting fifties, and allowing their team to cruise to the target. The Thunder were off the boil all evening, not playing to their best in any department. That win means the Scorchers move above the Thunder into fourth. Sydney slide down to fifth.The BBL continues tomorrow, with the Renegades taking on the Hurricanes. Should be another cracker!
