OUT! Bowled. Ben Laughlin to Jackson Bird. Half volley, off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to. Full, straight, and with Bird missing an ugly swipe, Laughlin hits.A convincing win for the Strikers. In the first ten overs of the game, it was actually in favour of the Stars. But a destructive finish to the Adelaide innings gave the hosts the momentum into their bowling. Contributions across the whole team, so a very satisfying win for the Strikers, who now jump up to second place. The Stars not at the races today, they remain in fifth.No BBL tomorrow, but we have a triple header on Sunday! That will be something to look forward to.

OUT! Bowled. Michael Neser to Scott Boland. Yorker, middle stump backing away driving, missed to. Wonderful death bowling. Speared into the base of middle and leg, Boland jumps outside leg to expose the wickets, and it rifles through to splatter into the stumps.

Ben Laughlin to Jackson Bird. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on for 2 runs, dropped catch by Short. Had to run in a long way to make it into a catch, but when Short gets to the ball, he'll be disappointed not to hold on. The momentum of him sprinting in meant he wasn't in the ideal position to take the catch. Bursts straight out the hands.

OUT! Caught. Rashid Khan to Dwayne Bravo. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Neser. You would say the Stars' chances are definitely over now. Bravo wants to hit the ball into orbit, but totally mis-hits it. It loops down the throat of long on for a simple chance. Rashid Khan has his first.

OUT! Bowled. Michael Neser to Liam Plunkett. Off cutter full toss, off stump on the front foot flick, missed to. Totally out-foxed. The change in pace works for Neser. Plunkett is oblivious to it, and is through the shot too early. A big swish, the ball dips underneath the bat, and thumps into the off pole.

FOUR! Dwayne Bravo to Jonathan Wells. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. In the slot, and drilled back down the ground to give long off no chance of making the stop. That final over went for 23.The Strikers were going nowhere at the halfway mark. Travis Head then kicked things into action with three sixes in the three balls. That seemed to give the rest of the batsmen a kick up the backside. Colin Ingram accelerated after a slow start to make an impressive fifty, and Jono Wells played a quality cameo at the end. The only shining light for the Stars was Liam Plunkett with four wickets. This will be a tough chase, but still doable.
19.5
4
FOUR! Dwayne Bravo to Jonathan Wells. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Wafts out to the width again, and it gets sliced over short third man. Didn't intend to go that fine, but he will take it.
19.4

FREE HIT. SIX! Dwayne Bravo to Jonathan Wells. Short, down leg side on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control over deep backward point for 6 runs. Not where you want to bowl for a free-hit. Width for Wells to go after, and he climbs into this. Slashes up and over backward point, and it travels all the way.

FOUR! Scott Boland to Jonathan Wells. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Lifted over the covers, the placement is excellent, and he has enough power behind it to beat the chasing fielders.

OUT! Caught. Liam Plunkett to Colin Ingram. Slower length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, to backward square leg, by Gulbis. Ingram goes now. Plunkett has his fourth!

OUT! Bowled. Liam Plunkett to Rashid Khan. Off cutter full toss, off stump backing away driving, missed to. Very tight to being a no-ball over waist height. Slips out the hand of Plunkett, and dips at the last second to hit the top of off on the full. Umpire says it is fine, so Rashid has to go. Perhaps unlucky that it wasn't called.

OUT! Caught. Liam Plunkett to Travis Head. Half volley, to leg on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Bird. Tries to go big again, but a poor connection on this occasion. Was there to hit, but miscues it off the bottom end of the bat. Long off has the simplest of catches, and makes no mistake.

SIX! Liam Plunkett to Travis Head. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Three maximums on the bounce!

SIX! Liam Plunkett to Travis Head. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.

It shows the inconsistency they have had, so the result tonight might all depend on which team turns up. It is a chance to join the Renegades and Sixers on eight points in joint second place, so plenty at stake. Who will come out victorious?

OUT! Bowled. Ben Laughlin to Jackson Bird. Half volley, off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to. Full, straight, and with Bird missing an ugly swipe, Laughlin hits.A convincing win for the Strikers. In the first ten overs of the game, it was actually in favour of the Stars. But a destructive finish to the Adelaide innings gave the hosts the momentum into their bowling. Contributions across the whole team, so a very satisfying win for the Strikers, who now jump up to second place. The Stars not at the races today, they remain in fifth.No BBL tomorrow, but we have a triple header on Sunday! That will be something to look forward to.

OUT! Caught. Liam O'Connor to Nic Maddinson. Googly length ball, to leg on the front foot Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Weatherald. Maddinson fancies a bit of this, but doesn't execute well. Attempts to deposit it over mid wicket, but it comes off towards the bottom end of the bat. Not enough distance on it, and Weatherald gobbles it up. Stars are struggling now.

FOUR! Liam O'Connor to Nic Maddinson. Quicker ball short, down leg side backing away cutting, well timed in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs. Terrible delivery, and Maddinson rightly puts it to the fence. Walks outside leg, and scythes this over backward point.

OUT! Bowled. Wes Agar to Evan Gulbis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to. Through him! Gulbis loses his shape here trying to hit across the line. Agar angled it back in, and it skids through past the inside to clip the off stump. Important wicket to take as Gulbis was going well.

Dunk is quickly onto this short ball, and carts it away over the legside. Strikes it very nicely, but doesn't get the elevation to clear the fence. Neser scoots round the boundary edge, and snaffles it diving to his right with two hands.
