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.
carved through point as he slipped onto his stomach! Low full toss wide of off, he slipped as he reached out and slapped it behind point
Brilliant yorker! 134kph, through the legs of Cutting and Carey does well to dive and take it. Agar holds his nerve
low full toss on leg, 134kph, he whips through midwicket for two
Cutting backs away early, Agar fires it wide of off but well inside the guide line! Well bowled. Cutting didn't need to move
clipped over deep square into the Members! Wow. Full and angled into the pads, Cutting picked it up with the bottom hand and nailed it over the fence!
Cutting on strike for the last over. 23 needed from 6. Agar to bowl it. Neser had one left.
141kph, full on middle, he walks down and chips this over the bowler's head for two
138kph, bouncer, beats him! It was well bowled. Right on the money and he couldn't get bat on it
full angled into leg, he swings it away off a thick inside edge to deep square and they run this time
slapped over cover! Slower ball dragged down outside off, it sat up and Cutting smashed it flat over cover and again it was just short of the rope
141kph, yorker on middle, he can only squeeze it out to cover
speared into leg, he swings hard and gets a thick inside edge to deep square but calls 'no'! Turns down the one

Mark: "Unbelievable how quick these matches can change"

137kph, short ball, he walked down and tried to heave it over midwicket but missed
clubbed over mid on! Full toss again and McAndrew is good enough shuffle down and muscle it over mid on
Danny: "What's the point of allowing the Power Surge to be cancelled after a team has signalled to take it? I don't see it. Would be kinda like taking a review and cancelling it. Very odd." There may have been some miscommunication with the umpires. Who knows.
133kph, full angled down leg and called wide
lofted over mid on! Low full toss and he flushed it over mid on and it nearly went all the way. Just landed short of the rope
full toss on leg, he glances this wide of short fine leg and deep square comes around
