Reactions on Twitter: Matthew Short, bowlers shine in Adelaide Striker’s emphatic victory over Sydney Thunder – BBL|12

Adelaide attackers have continued their dominance in the running Big Bash League (BBL) 2022-23 with a comfortable six wicket win against Sydney Thunder on Tuesday. This was the Strikers’ third straight win and they sit at the top of the points table.

Chasing 151, the Strikers got off to a terrible start and lost their opener Jake Weatherald (7), when the team’s score was 9 in 2.1 overs. Before the thunder could put more pressure, Matthew Kort inspired the Strikers’ comeback with a remarkable at bat.

Short kept the scoreboard ticking and found boundaries to ensure the run-rate remained within Strikers’ range. He added 83 runs for the second wicket with Chris Lynn before the latter was cleared by Nathan MacAndrew for 28.

Short, meanwhile, hit a brilliant half-century and looked to take his team across the finish line with ease, but McAndrew came again to save the Thunders, getting rid of Short for a well-made 65 from 44 deliveries, including three fours and five sixes. Possibly, Adam snake brought the team across the finish line with his undefeated 28-run knockout.

Earlier, after opting to bat first, the Thunder posted 150/5 in their allotted 20 overs, thanks to a sparkling strike by opener Alex Hales. The England cricketer then hit 68 off 50 deliveries, using six fours and three sixes.

Hales formed a brilliant 63-run partnership for the third wicket Oliver Davies before Colin deGradhomme broke the stand by firing Hales. Davies scored a crucial 42-run hit from just 30 balls, including two fours and a maximum. For Strikers, De Grandhomme (2/27) and Henry Thorton (2/18) took two wickets each.
