10:13pm Strikers have engineered a super comeback to snatch this win here. They will now host Hobart Hurricanes in their first ever BBL final. You'd have expected some panic when the strike bowlers started getting carted around, but Travis Head was impressive as captain. After his 85, he snuck in four economical overs along with the wicket of Harris. And then, he took a gamble with Ingram that might have won them the match a lot earlier if the fielding had fallen into place. He also took a gamble with Neser, the bowler who struggled most up till the 19th over. That over went for only 7, after Rashid went for 8 in the 18th. Laughlin had a poor start to the final over, but he and his skipper got the tactics bang-on from there. Bowled to his field every ball, and he's pulled it off against Pollard who makes a living out of these situations.A superb match and we hope you enjoyed it as much as us. We'll see you on Sunday for the final.
It's only the captain in the bowler's ear right now. They have long-off very straight now. Third man and fine leg are in.
Pollard picks this moment to take the gloves and helmet off and adjust his laces. Guess what the crowd thinks of that?
Long chat between batsman and bowler. Fine leg has dropped back and mid-off comes in.
13 off 6 for Laughlin to defend. Point and third man are in, as is extra cover. Short fine the other one inside.
The crowd love this fielding effort now.
