Adelaide Strikers



Overs: 20.0 / 20.0

Melbourne Stars

10.05 pm When two of the top three hit fifties, in a chase of 152, there's little doubt over whom the winner would be. Travis Head produced a superb half-century, his shots matching Glenn Maxwell's earlier in the day. The Strikers' captain provided the oomph to the chase and once he got going, the Stars bowlers couldn't find a proper response. Thank you for your company through the match, enjoy the rest of your evening.

MK: "Dropped catches and poor captaincy in death bowling has never and will never win you a T20 game.. I think this is what Stars have learnt the hard way this BBL season."

18.4A Zampa to AT Carey, BOUNDARY, 6 runs, there's the game! Strikers top the table. Stars close to being knocked out and it all happens off a Carey slog sweep.
18.3A Zampa to CA Ingram, 1 run, dropped by Coleman running back from cover. A loopy leg break outside off gets a big slog from Ingram. Top edge results. Then disappointment.
18.2A Zampa to CA Ingram, No run, cracks a flighted delivery to mid-off.
18.1A Zampa to AT Carey, 1 run, clips a good length ball off his pads to short fine leg.
End of over 18. 13 runs this over. 141/2 after 107 balls.

Hari: "Too bad Head was in RCB in the last IPL. Never knew he could play such glorious shots. Had to sit out most of the games as Gayle and Watto kept playing ahead of him."

Hashim: "The game is still on! Melbourne Stars could still yet turn around their tournament, with a couple of quick wickets, as well as keeping that economy rate down." --- That's probably why the captain bowled with a slip. Strikers need 101 in 12 overs

Hira Khan: "Is there any possibility of implementation of DRS in T20's??? Surely Teams need it...!! Need to reconsider this rule...!!"

Tayyab: "What this BBL proves is that a team with less firepower but works well together as a unit will always beat a star studded team like the stars who sometimes seem like separate individuals rather than a team"

Raj: "What is the use of Faulkner remaining not out 5 times when he is scoring at SR of 110 only, and that too when he is coming in during last few overs. Also, he hasn't completed his 4 overs in any of the match so far. Clearly, he has gone down the ranks."
