Twenty20 Big Bash

South Australia v New South Wales

New South Wales won by 21 runs

Hello and welcome to match 3 of the Australian T20 Big Bash from the Adelaide Oval. Last year's finalists South Australia host the inaugral Champion's League winners New South Wales. NSW have some big stars on show including David Warner and Brett Lee. South Australia are missing Callum Ferguson due to a groin injury but Keiron Pollard returns for the Redbacks and Yorkshire and England leg spinner Adil Rashid are the Redbacks two internationals.

Perfect conditions at the Adelaide Oval today. We are expecting 20,000 plus. The wicket looks good. This should be a great fixture. NSW captain Stuart Clark won the toss and elected to bat. David Warner and Dan Smith will get first use against 'The Wild Thing' Shaun Tait. Last time they met in T20 Big Bash Warner hit Tait for four sixes.
