No ball Liam Plunkett to William Bosisto. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, direct hit by Gotch. Bizarre scenes at the very end before everyone realises the umpire has called a no-ball. Bosisto was lazy in not getting behind the line as the quick thinking Gotch pulled up a stump. All smiles in the end though.Big win for Perth then as they get their second victory of the season and stay within touching distance of the top four. A solid batting display all round with the opening pair getting off to a good start with Cameron Bancroft carrying on for his fifty before captain Ashton Turner saw his side home.
