Moises Henriques 13 (16) and Daniel Christian 1 (4) were also failed to form a wicket-to-wicket partnership, coming up short of Peter Siddle and Harry Conway, accordingly. Hayden Kerr was the lone batsman who seemed to be really aggressive, smashing undefeated 98* in just 58 balls. Along with Kerr, the other batter, Sean Abbott, added 41 (20) with some booming strokes punishing the loose deliveries.
As the equation wraps up, the spectators’ choice of who would win the contest got more difficult. Jordan Silk, who came into bat soon after Ben Dwarshuis got dismissed for a golden duck, was injured. However, after many twists and turns, the Sydney Sixers won the Challenger against the Adelaide Strikers by four wickets to qualify for the finals, where they will meet the finalists Perth Scorchers on Friday, 28th January, at Docklands Stadium, Melbourne.
