Adelaide Strikers are toppled with Jason Behrendorff picking up 3 for 22 as well
Perth Scorchers 1 for 195 (Munro 114*, Bancroft 45) beat Adelaide Strikers 146 (Short 63, Behrendorff 3-22) by 49 runs
The New Zealand import overcame a nervous start to belt a ragged Strikers attack and finish with the highest individual score in Scorchers’ history.
Strikers were never in the hunt against a sharp Scorchers attack, who won their home fixture played in the neutral venue of Sydney Showgrounds due to Western Australia’s strict border controls amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
