Adelaide Strikers became the first team to win batting first in the BBL this summer as they beat Sydney Thunder by 51 runs

Scorer: Sanjay Murari | Commentator: Suneer Chowdhary

That's it from me, will be back tomorrow again for the Melbourne Stars v Sydney Sixers tie at the MCG.

A 51-run win for the Strikers to take them to four points from three games. Thunder are yet to open their account from their three matches!

The batsmen set it up for the Adelaide side, with Michael Klinger getting a 60, Ludeman scoring 46 before Nathan Reardon smashed a 20-ball 42. Lot depended on Chris Gayle to get going for Thunder but he his lack of form continued and made a 19-ball eight. It was playing catch-up after that but they never got close.

Three wickets each for Tait and Richardson for the Strikers, while Nannes' 4/17 went in vain.

Richardson to Zampa, OUT, fuller and on the off, and he has hit it straight up and it goes straight down to the long-on fielder, that is the end of that then
