Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

End of Over No.20 155/6 This Over (8 runs)

9.51pm Big win for Strikers. This was one-sided. Rashid Khan gets to pay the tribute he wanted to for his late father – two wickets and a big win for his side. It was also a wonderful gesture from the Adelaide Oval to give him a rich ovation at the end of his spell. He’s been popular in this part of the world, and deservedly so, wooing the crowd every night with his skills.

But the Strikers’ hero with the ball was Peter Siddle. He has returned from national duty, where he was with the Test team for the MCG Test. He put down Rohit Sharma – one of several forgettable moments for the home team as India retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy with a massive win. This has been a good comeback from that, a good first step to erase those memories.

With the bat, Carey laid the platform with a rapid half-century, and Colin Ingram, the Strikers skipper, made use of that to launch a brilliant assault of his own.

That is where we will leave you then. That was the last of our live coverage of competitive cricket in 2018. We hope you had an awesome year – we sure did, bringing all the cricket to you. The new year has so much more in store, and promises to be more exciting, promising and enthralling than ever. So many memories from this year – some good, some not so much. But this year has seen some terrific cricket, and the future is very promising with all the exciting talent around. We shall leave you with our report card for teams in international cricket in 2018. From here at the comms desk, it’s goodbye and a very happy new year! Here’s to 2019!
