That wraps up a comprehensive win for the Strikers, their first game of the new season. They looked a class above and have a very well-rounded T20 team.

Thanks for your company and please do stick around for game two of the double header, the Perth Scorchers taking on the Hobart Hurricanes from the WACA.

Just before I go, Michael Klinger has been named Man of the Match. Batted and fielded very well in a dominant performance.
