Adelaide Strikers

10.20pm A rare high-scoring encounter in this year's BBL is won by the team defending a target, which is even rarer in modern-day T20 cricket. It was an innings of ups and downs, just like how T20s often progress.

The Strikers needed 13 to win off the last over, but Jofra Archer found his lengths, his lines and some appreciable pace to finish with 4-0-15-3, a spell that turned out to be the difference between victory. The short boundary made things interesting and for a while, Travis Head and Colin Ingram made batting look incredibly easy, but they fell a few balls short eventually.

Jigar Shah: "So to conclude Archer 4-0-15-3 outbolwed Rashid Khan today 4-0-18-2 and thats the difference between two sides. "

19.6JC Archer to Rashid Khan, 1 run, superb last over from Archer. Short down leg, pulled away towards midwicket. Archer sprints after it, but can't get there. The Strikers can't run nine either, so the Hurricanes put up a seven-run victory.
19.5JC Archer to MG Neser, 1 run, the crowd goes wild. Full and straight, hit out to mid-off. And without an extra, this game is done.
19.4JC Archer to Rashid Khan, 1 run, superb bowling, a 144 yorker on leg. Not much Rashid can do but jam it out to mid-off.

11 off 3

19.3JC Archer to Rashid Khan, 2 runs, good length on leg, Rashid backs away and swings, badly bunted away towards midwicket. Falls in no-man's land, for two!.
19.2JC Archer to MG Neser, OUT, No run, gone? Bye or run-out. A yorker outside off, creeps underneath the bat. Wade rips off the glove and throws the stumps down at the batsman's end with Wells short. Is that the match? Three dots in succession. The game has swung.
19.1JC Archer to JS Lehmann, OUT, No run, plumb in front! 144 kph, a low full toss and dead straight. Lehmann misses a flick, misses the ball and is struck in front of leg. Was it sliding down? Didn't look like it. Another dot ball. New man in. Hurricanes in front now?.
End of over 19. 11 runs this over. 170/4 after 112 balls.

13 off 7. Strikers in front. But a big ball coming up.

Sam: "Not that they are in any state to convince players to play for them but you would have thought the West Indies would be doing everything possible to persuade Joffra... "

Kapil: "Tymal Mills has so much pace up his sleeve, I don't know why he tries to bowl that high. Why not target the ribs? He ends up bowling a loose delivery every over and gives away the easy runs. Needs to repay the faith and the money put in him. Hasn't bowled a match winning spell yet, niether in IPL nor in Big Bash, though only 3-4 games here yet"

Ash: "Is there any way Archer can be granted residency in the UK quicker to make him eligible for England selection before 2022?" --- I don't think so. My uneducated guess is that Brexit has made it a lot more difficult for such deals to go through.

Aashish Calla: "So as of right now, is Archer eligible to play for the West Indies, or can he not play for any International team?" --- He's eligible for West Indies, yes.
