Jake Weatherald, Rashid Khan hold off Perth Scorchers in rain-hit runfest

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.

Conway to Jordan, FOUR runs

full outside off, that's a mighty powerful drive to deep cover but it doesn't matter

17.5
Conway to Jordan, no run

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...."

Conway to Green, OUT

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

Cameron Green c Salt b Conway 9 (10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 90
17.2
2
Conway to Green, 2 runs

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

Conway to Jordan, 1 run

full and straight, swung to short fine leg

It's 25 needed off the last over and that looked unlikely half an hour ago

16.5
2
Agar to Green, 2 runs

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"
