Colin Munro’s unbeaten 114 seals the deal for Perth Scorchers


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

Colin Munro smashed his maiden BBL century to power Perth Scorchers to a convincing victory over Adelaide Strikers in a match played behind closed doors in Sydney and which didn’t finish until after midnight local time.

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.
