The Perth Scorchers have won the Big Bash League 2014, after comfortably defeating the  Hobart Hurricanes in the final of the tournament by 39 runs, on Friday. Batting first, the Scorchers put up a total of 191 for the loss of four wickets in their quota of 20 overs. But the Hurricanes fell ended their innings on 152 for the loss of seven wickets.

 

The Hurricanes never really looked to threaten the Scorchers’ dominance in the final during their chase. They were rocked by regular wickets, and didn’t get a strong partnership going. Openers, Ben Dunk and Tim Paine didn’t last beyond the powerplay overs, and apart from George Bailey, none of the other batsmen really troubled the bowlers. When Bailey departed for 58 from 32 balls, the Hurricanes, seemingly, lost all their hopes of grabbing a win from the jaws of defeat.

 

One also has to commend the Scorchers’ bowling attack, who didn’t gave away anything, and were aided by some wonderful fielding all around.

 

Earlier in the day, the Scorchers’ innings was powered by some serious hitting by both the Marsh brothers in the fag end. Their opener, Craig Simmons laid the platform for the middle-order to launch.

 

Brief scores:

 

Perth Scorchers 191 for 4 in 20 overs (Craig Simmons 45, Shaun Marsh 63*, Mitchell Marsh 37; Ben Hilfenhaus 1 for 23) beat Hobart Hurricanes 152 for 7 in 20 overs (Jonathan Wells 24, George Bailey 58; Jason Behrendorff 2 for 24, Brad Hogg 2 for 27) by 39 runs.

 

Man of the Match: Brad Hogg.
