A stellar all-round performance from Mitchell Marsh handed the Perth Scorchers a consolation win in their fourth and final Champions League fixture, knocking the Lahore Lions out in the process.

Marsh starred with both bat and ball, claiming 2-12 before single handedly saving Perth from certain defeat with a quick-fire 63no off 38 balls.

The 22-year-old entered the crease with the Scorchers at 6-40, chasing 125 for victory. The power-hitter then did what he does best, smashing seven fours and three sixes.

Brad Hogg (28) provided great assistance in the later stages, finding the boundary four times during a handy cameo.

Earlier, Joel Paris (3-22) and Hogg (1-24) helped Marsh restrict the Pakistani outfit to just 6-24.

Before Marsh's heroics, Perth's top order struggled, losing five of the first six batsman for under six runs.
