Thanks for joining us. If you missed much of the game, worry not. Alex Malcom should bring you up to speed with his bulletin that will be up very shortly. Cheers! Hope to see you tomorrow for Strikers v Renegades.

Amada-Jade Wellington is all smiles and why not! Her record-breaking 5-8 has helped Adelaide Strikers put in a dominating performance with the ball. Tahlia McGrath saw off a small chase in clinical fashion. The Strikers were a tad slow to begin with but there was never a threat of them stumbling.

Amanda-Jade Wellington is the Player of the Match. "I couldn't thank my fielders enough," she beams. "Unbelievable performance tonight. I felt really confident. The batters were stuck in the crease, and I was able to toss it up nicely and get the ball to turn. One down, two to go. The girls have had an unbelievable season. Our momentum has been incredible and it's crucial in a tournament like this."
