The Perth Scorchers' disappointing Champions League Twenty20 campaign ended on Wednesday with a crushing six-wicket loss to the Mumbai Indians in Delhi.
Mumbai had to reach the victory target of 150 in 14.2 overs to reach the semi-finals and did it with six balls to spare as the Scorchers' bowling attack was plundered.
Young West Australian fast bowler Jason Behrendorff (2-31) removed Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar for a duck in the second over but there was little to celebrate after that.
Fellow left-arm quick Joel Paris (0-36 off two overs) and left-arm spinner Ashton Agar (0-23 off 1.2 overs) came in for particular punishment.
Earlier, Agar had more success with the bat when he opened the innings and made 35 off 40 balls in a solid start.
But apart from 21-year-old Sam Whiteman's 51 not out off 32 balls, the Scorchers could only manage a modest 6-149 from their 20 overs.
And it was one of their own - WA right-arm fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile - who was the chief destroyer for Mumbai.
The 25-year-old, who made his one-day international debut for Australia against England last month, ripped through Perth's middle-order to finish with 3-19 from his four overs.
After Perth's opening clash against the Highveld Lions was abandoned due to rain without a ball being bowled, the the Otago Volts belted them by 62 runs and they were hammered by nine wickets by the Rajasthan Royals to finish bottom of Group A.
Mumbai's win meant they bumped Otago out of a semi-final berth and qualified with Group A winners Rajasthan.
