Sydney Thunder began the match on a strong note, after upsetting the 6-match winning streak contenders Perth Scorchers in their recent clash. Despite winning the toss in this match, they opted to bat first and are off to a good start against the Adelaide Strikers.
Strikers, on the other hand, stepped in positively, picking up three wickets in the style of opening batters Matthew Gilkes 13 off 10, picked by Fawad Ahmed, Ben Cutting 37 off 32, sacked by Peter Siddle, and Sam Billings 18 off 11. The Strikers bowling unit finds the line and length to restrict the runs flow. And, for Thunder’ Jason Sangha 32* off 30and Oliver Davies 1* off 1, are on strike to build the strong innings.
