Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

The Strikers win by 41 runs. That was too easy for the Strikers in the end. After the early onslaught from Ben Dunk and Evan Gulbis in the Powerplay they could not maintain the rage. The Strikers strangled the Stars, led by Rashid Khan who conceded just 18 runs from four overs. Colin Ingram is named Player of the Match for his 57 off 41 balls in the Strikers innings. Travis Head and Jon Wells also played excellent hands to get the Strikers up to 178 after a slow start. The Strikers move to second on the table with a fourth win. The Stars slip to fifth with a fourth loss. The Strikers play the Thunder in the first game of a BBL triple-header on Sunday. The BBL pauses for a day tomorrow with Australia facing India in the first ODI from the SCG. Hope you can join us then. Goodnight from Adelaide.
