BBL fielder ducks out from easy catch due to blinding sun - while wearing sunglasses on his hat

Defensive specialists Perth have shown they can also chase, getting home with five balls and six wickets to spare against the Sydney Sixers in their Big Bash League clash at the WACA Ground.

The Sixers were chasing their first win of the season and put up a good first innings total after being sent in to bat by Scorchers captain Adam Voges, making 4-167.

They started well with the ball too having the Scorchers 2-17 after three overs having dismissed David Willey (1) and Hilton Cartwright (10).

But a 96-run stand from Michael Klinger (83 from 61 balls) and Ashton Turner (45 from 32) turned the game in the favour of the home team.

The match came down to the final over even after debutant Tim David hit a six from the last ball of the 19th over for the Scorchers.

A wide that went for four started the last over from Sean Abbott before Voges faced his first ball and hit it for six over fine leg.

The Scorchers finished at 4-170 for the highest successful run chase at the WACA.

The Scorchers are four from four in their title defence while the Sixers have lost all four matches so far in BBL 07.

The Sixers also lost Steve O'Keefe to a nasty lower leg injury in an innocuous fielding incident after he bowled three overs (0-20).

Only Jason Roy (six) didn't contribute with the bat for the Sixers. Jordan Silk was unbeaten on 45 with Sam Billings and Peter Nevill adding 33 each, Nic Maddinson 30 and Ben Dwarshuis 15 not out.

It wasn't until Klinger and Turner got going that the Scorchers moved ahead in the run chase. There were still some nervous moments after both fell, but cameos from David and Voges got them home.

It was a debut to remember for 21-year-old David, who hit two crucial sixes after receiving his cap from Adam Gilchrist.

"It was obviously a really good feeling. I just tried to play with a clear mindset and that was half my luck in the end," he said.

"Maxy making 83 chasing that score has pretty much won us that game so that was obviously great along with Ash with the bat. And then for V to come out at the end and get the job done was awesome."

Daniel Sams impressed with the ball for the Sixers with 2-25 from three overs.
