The Perth Scorchers have batted really well in the first innings of the Big Bash League 2014 final to post a total of 191 for the loss of four wickets in their quota of 20 overs, against the Hobart Hurricanes.

The Scorchers started off cautiously with their captain Simon Katich and Craig Simmons taking their time early on. But Katich couldn’t reimburse the balls defended as he fell to Dimitri Mascarenhas in the fourth over, ending his tournament with another damp performance.

But his partner, and the Scorchers batting mainstay Craig Simmons took the attack to the Hurricanes’ bowlers. He looked in sublime form for his 45 before he departed in the 11th over. From thereon, Shaun Marsh and Adam Voges built a solid partnership, with Marsh doing the bulk of the scoring. He brought up his fifty in the 16th over off a boundary off Cameron Boyce.

After Voges departed, Shaun’s brother, Mitchell Marsh joined him in the centre, and the two brothers were on an annihilation mission, with Mitchell tearing apart Mascarenhas in the 18th over for 24 runs. Both the brothers added 47 runs for their fifth wicket partnership.

Brief scores:

Perth Scorchers 191 for 4 in 20 overs (Craig Simmons 45, Shaun Marsh 63*, Mitchell Marsh 37; Ben Hilfenhaus 1 for 23) vs Hobart Hurricanes.
