The Perth Scorchers’ pace battery came to the rescue yet again as they managed to defend a low total of 142 against the Melbourne Stars. The home side lost their top order early on but Hilton Cartwright’s fifty and contributions from Aston Agar and Adam Voges helped Scorchers to end up with 142/6 on the board. Stars too were off to a similar start but the Scorchers’ bowling depth didn’t allow the visiting side to get going as they settled down with 129/8, 14 runs short of the target.
