Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

The Thunder win by 71 runs. What a horrible batting collapse by the Strikers. They lost 7 for 22 to be all out for 97! They lost three in the Powerplay and despite a small rebuild by Ingram and Wells they were always well behind the rate and never recovered. Shane Watson had a great day with both the bat and his captaincy, mixing his bowlers well and never allowing any batsmen to settle. Shane Watson is the Player of the Match for his 68 from 40 balls. He was a class above on a slow surface. That is a huge result for the Thunder. They jump to second on the BBL table for the time being while the Strikers slip from second to fifth. It is that tight. There are two more games today following this one. The Renegades host the Heat in Geelong before the Scorchers face the Sixers in Perth. Hope you can stay with us for more BBL coverage. But from Sydney, for now, it’s goodbye.

17.4 W Sams to O’Connor Is this a run out? Stanlake lost his bat. Oh no! He’s out on replay! What a horror way to end it. It was pushed to midwicket for a tight one, Green gathered and threw to Lenton, Stanlake was going to make his ground easily, but as he slid his bat it stuck in the ground just short of the line, he lost control of it, his next step was just short of the line, his body was over the line but in the air when Lenton broke the stumps! So unfortunate for big Billy. OUT
B Stanlake run out 1 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00
17.3 1 Sams to Stanlake full yorker, outside off, he jams the bat down and gets an outside edge that runs to third man 1 run

Craig: “I personally prefer these 160-180 run contests as bowling is also a skill. As much as I feel Lynn etc should be in the ODI team, when someone just stands there hitting like a baseballer it is quite boring to me!”

17.2 1 Sams to O’Connor fuller outside off, he pushes this on the front foot to long off 1 run
17.1 W Sams to Rashid Khan caught at deep square! Short slower ball, Rashid sets himself, he toes a pull shot high to deep square but nowhere near far enough to reach the rope, Nair comes in, steadies himself and takes the catch OUT
Rashid Khan c Nair b Sams 8 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sams back on

End of Over No.17 95/8 This Over (6 runs)

Karan: “For Rashid Khan, it’s time to prove himself again for the team.” Not sure he needs to prove himself. They already value him as their most important player.

Loui: “It’s not the batting but the “wickets” that have been poor this season” Yes the pitches have been poor this season. No question of that.

15.6 0 Nair to O’Connor tossed up on middle, he defends into the leg side and again they opt not to take the available single no run

Stuart: “The ECB said they are modelling their new competition on the Big Bash………I hope they are watching closely how poor this season has been. Standard of batting is dreadful on a whole this year ”

End of Over No.15 88/6 This Over (5 runs)

Shaji Pappan: “Big bash is super and exciting and innovative league. Only IPL is better but that’s because of Indian contingent just imagine the range of BBL if Indian players were also allowed to play. ”

14.6 0 Fawad Ahmed to Neser 84kph, leg break on middle, he defends on the front foot no run

14.1 1 Fawad Ahmed to Rashid Khan shorter outside off, he’s back and cutting to the gap at point 1 run

Fawad Ahmed back

End of Over No.14 83/5 This Over (7 runs)

Alan: “I’m with @Joe on this. BBL is a tad boring due to dilution. Oz cricket in general is worse for wear due to limited free-to-coverage. CA has gone for the money, left the fans out.” That’s quite a common comment at the moment.

13.6 2 Nair to Nielsen 82kph, tossed up on off, he sweeps hard against the turn forward of square for a couple 2 runs

Karan: “Rashid khan should have come at 4 down on the crease.. ” He’s in now. At the non-striker’s
