The Strikers move up to third on the BBL table moving past the Thunder who slip to fourth. These two sides meet again tomorrow night at Adelaide Oval in their last game of the season with finals spots on the line. Join us again then.

The Strikers hang on by six runs and keep themselves right in the playoff mix. They claim all four points. The Thunder made a mess of that chase after cruising through the first nine overs. Peter Siddle bowled magnificently delivering 16 dots and taking 2 for 22 and he has been named Player of the Match.
