Scott Boland403218.0064000
14.2 to AT Carey, Carey finally holes out to square leg! Shovelled it to the fielder as he looked to clear the rope but ends up getting more height than distance on it, and the Strikers finally lose their first. What a stand this has been. 145/1
Riley Meredith403729.2571200
17.2 to TM Head, never looked like he'd got enough on this, and he does indeed hole out to Handscomb at wide long-on. It was a good catch, he had to move a fair bit to his left, but it's very well judged in the end. 169/3
17.4 to IA Cockbain, spoons this one to cow corner, and the Hurricanes pick up another wicket. The wheels have come off for the Strikers since the openers fell, and the Hurricanes need to continue chipping away to make the job easier for their batters. 169/4
Tom Rogers403729.2565010
19.1 to MT Renshaw, slaps it straight to cow corner. The timing has just completely left the Strikers' and finally the Hurricanes are beginning to exploit that. 179/5
19.5 to T Kelly, top-edged, and the keeper takes another easy catch. 184/6
D'Arcy Short302809.3320110
Jordan Thompson1010010.0001000
Wil Parker4042110.5093310
15.6 to MW Short, with the last ball of his spell, Parker finally dismisses Short. He top edges a sweep straight to the keeper. A little bit of revenge for all the spanking he's taken, but this moment's all about Short, who might have put the Tasmanians on the brink of elimination.. 164/2

Matthew Short403318.2575000
0.3 to BR McDermott, huge blow to start the chase! The tourney MVP is gone! Full on leg stump, backs away from the stumps to clear room to drive over mid-off, miscues this though and it lobs up gently to mid-off, fielder on the ring backpedals 10 yards to take a simple catch.. 6/1
Harry Conway403228.0062100
9.1 to CP Jewell, slower ball short and follows him backing away from leg. Wanted to smash this over the leg side but his timing is thrown off by the lack of pace and a thin edge goes through to Carey.. 67/3
15.4 to JA Thompson, Thompson holes out to midwicket, and the Hurricanes are properly beginning to slide now. It was a slower short ball, and he was through his shot much too early. 128/6
Peter Siddle3.403248.7286000
3.6 to MS Wade, full on sixth stump, slices a drive high toward the cover sweeper. By no means intended to be a catching position but he's perfectly situated to take a catch 15 yards in from the rope at head height.. 28/2
17.2 to TH David, spanks that straight down long-off's throat, and that might be the end of the Hurricanes' resistance. Gave it a good old thwack, but it was much too flat. 147/8
17.5 to W Parker, cleans him up with a yorker. That was much too good for Parker to handle, especially at that pace around 140kph. Can Siddle finish it off this over?. 152/9
19.4 to RP Meredith, fittingly, it's Siddle who finishes things off with a perfect yorker that cleans him up! The Hobart Hurricanes are done for this season, while the Adelaide Strikers will now face Sydney Thunder for a place in the final.. 166/10
Fawad Ahmed403318.2580300
16.1 to TS Rogers, miscue from Rogers, it's skied and the keeper takes an easy catch. Wasn't much of a delivery, but in fairness, wasn't much of a shot either. 130/7
Henry Thornton302528.3332000
14.3 to DJM Short, Cockbain at long-off takes an excellent catch diving forward!. Short was picking out that region, and was tempted to do so despite the fielder being moved back. He pays the price for that, and the Strikers roar back into the ascendancy. 122/4
14.4 to PSP Handscomb, it's two in two for Thornton! Handscomb heaved at it but sent it sky-high, with mid-on taking an easy catch. 122/5
