full outside off, that's a mighty powerful drive to deep cover but it doesn't matter
Adelaide Strikers win by 15 runs after a brilliant comeback with the ball. The Scorchers were 0 for 124 in the ninth over and then they fell apart, starting with two in two balls to Rashid Khan, followed by some excellent death bowling from Wes Agar and Harry Conway. It's been a wonderfully entertaining T20 match, dominated by the bat but good bowling has been on display as well.
Ron: "We all know that was an amazing batting show, but that's Rashid's game. He turned that. Unbelievable."
The Scorchers will wonder what went wrong, the Strikers that gets their winning underway. I'll wrap things up there for tonight. There's more BBL tomorrow afternoon, but this is my last BBL match before Christmas (and until the New Year) so I'll wish you all a great time over the next few days and I'll be back for the Boxing Day Test from the MCG. Goodnight and thanks for joining.
short of a length slower ball, swing and a miss
USM: "124 runs from 1st 8.3 overs with no loss of wicket to 50 runs from next 8.3 overs with 6 wickets, what at turnaround this match has seen. Really cricket is a funny game...."
full toss at off stump, heaved to deep square leg
great catch from Salt, a bit of Jordan about that! What a way to seal the deal. Was drilled very firmly towards wide long-on, Salt sprinted to his right - doesn't quite get as airborne as Jordan did - and does superbly to cling on
gets underneath a full ball outside off and sends it skimming towards long-on, Salt commits for the catch but doesn't reach him and he does really well to prevent the boundary
full and straight, swung to short fine leg
It's 25 needed off the last over and that looked unlikely half an hour ago
comes down the pitch and gets to this on full, drives it over Agar's head but a two is fine for the Strikers
superbly bowled, jams the yorker in outside off, jabs it down the ground and they do well to get back for the second
Josh: "Why do I feel like I've jinxed the Scorchers?? Even since I've got published the fire has been put out!!! Not a piece of clean hitting in sight"
keeps it full on off stump, driven to the sweeper
gets it right again, a low full toss outside off, mistimed towards mid-off...outstanding effort
fantastic bowler, a yorker outside off, jabbed off the toe end back to the bowler
full, wide outside off, driven to point
Just two runs from that over and should have been a wicket. Super stuff
dropped! At deep midwicket. Dropped in short, Jordan pulled very strongly but it was straight to the man. Spilled out.
and now a yorker outside off, Jordan gets some of his own medicine, drives over it
beaten! Another good delivery, length ball outside off, a bit of nibble
full outside off, nicely square driven behind point but it's only one run
Ashlee: "What a turn around it is!! All thanks to Rashid Khan"
short of a length slower ball outside off, scoots under the bottom edge as he pulls
good length outside off, pushed to the on side and Conway gets across
finds long-on! It's falling apart for the Scorchers. A length ball outside off, he dragged his shot to the on side and can't clear Salt in the deep
full toss outside off, driven wide of the sweeper but Wells is quick around the rope
