5.30 pm Good evening all! ESPNcricinfo’s live coverage of BBL 11 is still alive and kicking as Perth Scorchers take on Sydney Sixers in Match 38. I’m Peter Della Penna bringing you the action in what will hopefully be a match between two full strength sides. These two were meant to be playing later in the week but the match was moved forward to allow more testing to be done for Brisbane Heat, who were meant to be playing tonight but have had their next match pushed back after a string of positive tests.
