A combined bowling effort from the bowling unit helped Adelaide bundle out Hobart Hurricanes for just 126 runs in the first innings. Peter Siddle produced, arguably, the best spell of his BBL career as he picked five wickets for just 23 runs in 3.5 overs.
He first picked the wicket of Ben McDermott to leave Hurricanes in trouble at 13 for 2. Rashid Khan picked the crucial wickets of Caleb Jewell and M Wright in the middle overs before Siddle removed the tail quickly. Adelaide Strikers chased down the score in 15.1 overs.
They lost Henry Hunt (18 off 14), Matt Renshaw (19 off 21), and Jonathan Wells (11 off 11) at regular intervals in pursuit of the total but Mathew Short held firm at one end and ensured runs keep coming at a great pace. He scored an unbeaten 72 run-run knock-off 44 balls, including 4 fours and 5 sixes, and guided his team home comfortably.
Facing them are Melbourne Stars, who are not in the best of forms. The Stars are languishing at the bottom of the points table, having registered only 3 wins in 8 matches. Melbourne Stars are coming into the game on the back of two consecutive losses. They were bundled out for a paltry 126-run total against Melbourne Renegades. Travis Dean played a vital 32-run knock of 26 balls. Cartwright scored 41 off 29 balls. However, runs aren’t coming from the bat of Glenn Maxwell. The absence of Marcus Stoinis isn’t helping them either.
Melbourne Stars fought hard with the ball and took the match till the 18th over of the second innings but eventually lost the game by 5 wickets. Ahead of their next game against the Strikers, Melbourne Stars would look to get back to winning ways.
