AS vs SS: The second match of the Big Bash League 2022 took place between Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Sixers at Adelaide Oval Cricket Ground on Wednesday. Adelaide Strikers have made a winning start to the competition as they beat the Sixers by 51 runs. Batting first, the Strikers notched a formidable score of 184 runs in the first innings.

The D Short provided a perfect start to the innings alongside Chris Lynn. After Weatherland fell early, the duo joined forces and stitched a 95-run partnership for the second wicket.

Lynn departed after scoring 41 runs in 34 balls, including 3 fours and 2 sixes. Short, on the other hand, went on to play a big knock of 84 runs in 53 deliveries, including 11 fours and 2 sixes. He got out in the 17th over but a 22-ball 40 from Adam Hose meant the Strikers finished their innings pretty strongly.

Sean Abbott’s exploits leave the Sixers strangled

For the Sixers, Sean Abbott was the pick of the bowlers, claiming 3 for 37 in 4 overs. In reply, Sydney Sixers could only manage 133 runs in the second innings. There were short cameos but none of them could go on to play big knocks with the bat.

Kurtis Patterson (9) and James Vince (0) departed cheaply but Josh Phillippe (26) and Moises Henriques (24) did play handy knocks but fell at crucial junctures in the game.

By the end of 13 overs, the Sydney Sixers had lost 4 wickets for 72 runs and needed someone to step up with the bat. Jordan Silk ignited some hopes with a brilliant knock of 36 runs in 25 balls but didn’t receive a lot of help from the other end. Once he got out in the 17th over, it was all but over for the Sixers.

AS vs SS Brief Scores: Adelaide Strikers 184 for 6 (Short 84, Lynn 41, Hose 40, Abbott 3-37) beat Sydney Sixers 133 for 7 (Silk 36, Thornton 4-20, Rashid 3-21) by 51 runs
