A very happy sell-out home crowd stand and applaud as the Strikers improve to three wins and one loss. It was a great all round effort, solid with the ball, sharp in the field with two run outs and a dominant batting display.

Tait, Young and Johnston impressed with the ball for the Strikers and it was only Steve Smith and Moises Henriques who offered any real resistance.

The Sixers needed early wickets but Klinger and Ludeman dominated the visitors' attack to win by 9 wickets and more than 4 overs to go. Ludeman was named Man of the Match for his 71 off just 43 balls.

Thanks for your company tonight, good night and Merry Xmas.
