Richardson, Bosisto power Scorchers to first win of the tournament

Ball-by-ball details & scorecard: Perth Scorchers v Adelaide Strikers - Match 9 - Perth

Perth Scorchers got their first win of the tournament as they outplayed Adelaide Strikers in their first home game of Big Bash League.

Scorchers captain Ashton Turner won the toss and elected to bowl, with the decision paying massive dividends.

The Scorchers’ five pacemen took full advantage of the lively wicket at Optus Stadium with Jhye Richardson the dominant star of the show finishing with 3 -7 from three overs.

An impressive catch by Nathan Coulter-Nile (1-33) and four wickets taken by Andrew Tye (2-9) and Jason Behrendorff (2-16) dismissed the Strikers for 88 in the 18th over – the visitor’s second lowest total in T20 cricket.

It is the fourth time the Scorchers have bowled a team out for less than 100, the most by any BBL team.

Chasing a comfortable target of 89, Perth slowly built a solid base thanks to a 57-run partnership between Will Bosisto and Ashton Turner.

Bosisto got the job done with a boundary on the final ball, steering the Scorchers home with an unbeaten 36 not out.

Scorchers take to the road for their next clash against the Hobart Hurricanes on Saturday 30 December in Launceston.
