Scorchers’ total of 203/7 against Adelaide Strikers in the 2013-14 season is their only other 200+ total in the Big Bash League.
392 – The aggregate of 392 in this match is the 10th highest in a Big Bash League game and the highest in a BBL match hosted by any venue in Perth. The 2013-14 match between Scorchers and Strikers at the WACA witnessed a total of 401 runs.
A record knock from Mitchell Marsh:
