Chasing a challenging target of 184, Sixers never really looked like they were in any position to chase down the massive score. The Daniel Hughes-led side had a terrible start after losing opener Josh Philippe (5) in the second over. In the very next over, James Vince went for a 3-ball duck.

Captain Hughes and opener Jack Edwards tried their best to stabilize the innings after adding 34 runs for the third wicket. However, Andrew Tye broke the short partnership in the seventh over by dismissing Hughes for 14.

Hughes’ dismissal followed a batting collapse as Strikers, who were struggling on 44/3 after seven overs, were bundled out for 97 in the 17th over. Edwards was the only highlight for Sixers as he went for a well-made 44 off 38 balls.

For Scorchers, Tye and Jhye Richardson grabbed all the limelight in the bowling. While Tye finished with a four-wicket haul, Richardson picked up three scalps.

Just the 4️⃣ for AJ tonight 😏 What a performance with the ball! 🔥 #BBL10 #MADETOUGH pic.twitter.com/B01mmCJqYo

Apart from the duo, Jason Roy and Josh Inglis made valuable contributions with 27 and 20 runs, respectively.

For Sixers, Steve O’Keefe and Lloyd Pope picked up two wickets each. Jack Ball was their most expensive bowler who conceded 43 runs in 4 overs at a dreadful economy of 10.80.
