After losing three wickets in a quick session, D Arcy Short and Peter Handscomb fueled the Hobart Hurricanes’ hopes of surviving in the tournament, but those prospects were wrecked after Henry Thornton struck both batters with back-to-back deliveries. Thornton’s first victim was D Arcy Short 56 (34), and his second was Peter Handscomb 15 (13). And then Conway steps again to grab his 2nd wicket in the form of Jordan Thompson 3(3) and then Fawad Ahmed followed Conway’s footsteps to bag Thomas Rogers 1 (2). Meantime, Siddle raised the hopes for Strikers upon scooping up Tim David 21 (11). With the exception of Caleb Jewell and D Arcy Short, no other batters in the lineup could provide consistent results to survive to play the 20 overs.

On the other flip, Strikers, seemed to be playing sensible cricket, as their lineup proved to be formidable enough just to collapse Hurricanes’ prospects in the Eliminator. As a result, Adelaide Strikers won by 22 runs against Hobart Hurricanes.
