Voges guides Scorchers to the minor premiership with victory over Strikers
SCORCHERS GO TOP
Perth has finished on top of the BBL ladder.
Adam Voges (56*) guided the Scorchers home from a precarious position on Thursday night, securing the minor premiership.
Mo: “I can’t give Voges a big enough rap. He came in at 4-28 and got his side home.” #BBL07

The Strikers have posted 6-137 from their 20 overs.
Only Jake Weatherald (56 off 43) and some late hitting from Alex Carey (25 off 10) could get going with any force.
Greg Matthews had earlier said 140 looked like a good score on today’s pitch.
