Scorer: Chandan Duorah | Commentator: Sreshth Shah

9.30 pm That's all from the Big Bash League on the first day of 2018. Two exciting matches, and here's how the points table looks after today. We'll be back with more BBL tomorrow. Until then, it's Sreshth Shah signing off. Good bye!

9.25 pm What a game this has been. Sixers started their defense of 168 very well, with two early wickets. But then it was a Klinger special, assisted by Turner and then the debutant David, that takes the hosts back to first on the points table. The Scorchers keep their strong run at home intact, while the Sixers slip further. That was their fourth loss in as many games.

Abbott to Voges, SIX, It's all over! Waist-high full toss on off stump that Voges looks to slog over midwicket. Takes the top edge and flies over the bowler's head for a maximum! Perth Scorchers win by six wickets.

Saurabh: "mistakes! mistakes! from botha. He, himself, is very good bowler, can't go on more than one over. With so many bowlers in the team, what is the need of maddinson to bowl(gone for 14), even somerville was doing well, what is the need to take off him from attack?? to bowl in last phase(15-20 overs,), his last over (16the over) gone for 16 runs. Poor bowling changes. Once again, this comment is not going to publish.. still trying , might be 1000th times. "

Abbott to Voges, 5 wides, unbelievable start to the final over! Full toss down the leg side and Nevill can't intercept either! That's five free runs and Scorchers now need four

Scorchers need nine to move to first. Sixers need to defend eight for their first win of the season. Abbott the man to bowl the final over.

END OF OVER:
19 | 8 Runs 1 Wkt | PS: 159/4 (9 runs required from 6 balls, RR: 8.36, RRR: 9.00)

Sams to David, SIX, shot of the day! Full on middle as he misses the yorker length, check-drives over the bowler's head and it's off the middle of the bat. Powerfully struck, and it hits the sightscreen on the full. What an important six. Brings the target down to single digits

Sams to David, no run, play-and-a-miss! Overpitched full outside off and it's an expansive attempted slog. But misses the shot completely

Voges, the Scorchers captain, walks in. David on strike

Sams to Klinger, OUT, It's a big hit, but it doesn't have the distance! Holes out. Slow ball on middle and it's slogged cross-batted, the fielder at cow corner takes his time to settle under it, before completing a clean catch. A twist in the tale!

M Klinger c Maddinson b Sams 83 (61b 9x4 2x6) SR: 136.06

Adityan: "Although Klinger deserves the victory here, I want BBL to be more exciting... Sixers have to win here to open up the table."
