Perth Scorchers claimed their first victory in this season's T20 Big Bash League as they defeated Sydney Sixers by seven wickets at the SCG.

  • Herschelle Gibbs: Led the Perth chase with a knock of 40
  • Michael Beer: Did the damage at the top of the Sydney innings 

Veteran South African Herschelle Gibbs top-scored with 40 as the visitors comfortably chased down a target of 114 with four balls remaining.

The result could have been even more embarrassing for Sydney if it was not for a lower order rally in their innings which took them from 28-6 to an eventual total of 113-9.

Michael Beer, Alfonso Thomas and Hilton Cartwright each grabbed two wickets as the Scorchers finally got their first points on the board after losing their opening two matches.
