Big Bash League 2015: Sydney Thunder vs Adelaide Strikers Match, Preview, Prediction, Live Score Streaming, Spotless Stadium, Team, Vanue, Time Details: A polished pursuit along with tight Adelaide bowling found the Strikers ease into a win with five balls to spare in the Waca Ground in the BBL battle.
With Tim Ludeman hitting four boundaries off the opening over, the Strikers made a flying start to the pursuit. Wickets fell but the run rate was kept mostly in check top-scored for the visitors with 42.
The season-opener for the Scorchers got worse when Coulternile seemed to dislocate his shoulder in the area.
They’d began nicely using the bat with Michael Klinger and Shaun Marsh joining to get a 41-run opening stand, but from there things diminished together with the loss of five wickets. Regardless of the Strikers losing Craig Simmons (1) and Ludeman (17) early, the runs were streaming for the Strikers. 22 was made by Travis Head and things moved along .
Ross kept his cool making 38 to get the Strikers before Adil Rashid hit on the winning run to begin the final over.
While the Scorchers host the Brisbane Heat, Adelaide take to the Sydney Thunder at Spotless Stadium next Monday.
layawardene was pleased with the all round functionality in the Strikers to give them an unbeaten start to the effort and him the best beginning to his time in the Big Bash.
‘It is a rough place in the future and conquer them here, but I believe our bowlers establish the tone up front. We kept picking up wickets and kept them to an adequate score to chase,” Jayawardene said.
‘It was a tiny rough wicket up front using the newest ball, but we only needed to weather the storm to get a little while and then it was reasonable bat in the finish. We got an excellent beginning and we needed to make sure we kept the momentum.’
