Other than Mitchell Marsh'sblistering 86-run knock, there were plenty of highlights for the Scorchers in their victory. One such moment was during the second innings when Melbourne's opener Mackenzie Harvey was dismissed for a two-ball duck. In the second delivery of the first over, Harvey received a full delivery, on middle, by Jason Behrendorff. The batter went forward to defend but the ball swung late to go past him and hit the middle and off stumps. Scorchers were 0/1 at that time.
