All-round Adelaide Strikers secure easy win

Adelaide Strikers' bowlers backed up a strong batting effort that combined industrious running and power-hitting, to secure a 67-run win against the Melbourne Renegades at the Adelaide Oval

Scorecard summary
Adelaide Strikers189/5(20 overs)
Melbourne Renegades122/10(17.5 overs)

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.
