Adelaide Strikers were struggled to reach the ambitious target. They’ve lost five wickets and are failed to form a key wicket-to-wicket partnership. Saqib Mahmood achieved a huge breakthrough for Thunder after dismissing Matthew Short 16 (12) and Matt Renshaw 38 (26). Daniel Sams was the other bowler to steal the spotlight after scooping up a couple of wickets in the shape of Jake Weatherald 31 (29) and George Garton 8 (11). Jonathan Wells with 46 (26), the only batter for Strikers looked aggressive to keep the hopes alive to some level but fell short for Daniel Sams as his 3rd-victim and Rashid Khan with a Golden Duck’ became his 4th-victim.
Strikers had a dismal track record in the current BBL season, and now they failed to provide any special outing, as a result, they lost the game with no hope against the optimistic Sydney Thunder. Daniel Sams has proven to be consistent with his bowling spell upon bagging 4-wickets. After winning this match (by 22runs), Sydney Thunder’s confidence will be enhanced.
