Sydney Thunder takes another blow from Adelaide Strikers despite the good innings from Alex Hales

Alex Hales was outstanding with the bat for Sydney Thunder but his team couldn’t cross the winning line against Strikers. This has happened second time a week that Thunder have lost to Strikers.

When the Thunder’s score exceeded the world record of 15 they established against the Strikers on Friday night, the Adelaide Oval audience erupted into a round of applause.

Alex Hales and talented youngster Ollie Davies (42), who shared the third wicket, racked up 63 runs before being both sent out by Colin de Grandhomme (2-25). After reaching 2-79 at the midway point, the Thunder were aiming for a total of more than 180, but they could only manage 3-71 in the next 10 overs, finishing at 5-150.

With a six-wicket victory and a successful chase down of the Thunder’s total with eight balls remaining, Matt Short then assisted the Strikers in keeping up their unblemished start to the BBL season. Short maintained his strong start to the season by scoring 65 runs off of 44 balls to maintain his position as the competition’s top run-scorer.

With Chris Lynn, Short controlled an 83-run second-wicket stand (28). Before English recruit Adam Hose (28 not out) stepped in and put the finishing touches on things, both men were dismissed to outstanding yorkers from left-arm pacer Nathan McAndrew (2-25), disrupting Lynn’s castle and trapping Short in front.
