Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

The Strikers win by five wickets with four balls to spare. A consolation prize for the Strikers. They win their last game of the season and avoid the wooden spoon. The Scorchers claim that unwanted crown after seven straight seasons of reaching the finals. Their horror year ends with a loss. Jono Wells was sensational in the chase making 69 off 42 and Harry Nielsen gave him great support. Jonathan Wells is named Player of the Match. That’s the first game of the double header completed. Sydney Thunder are hosting the Hobart Hurricanes in Canberra.

End of Over No.18 167/4 This Over (15 runs)

Coulter-Nile is in distress. He’s sit down at the bowler’s end. He looked dizzy as he sat down. The doctor came out to assess him. He’s walking off now. Concerns from an Australian perspective as he is in the ODI squad for the tour of India later this month.

15.3 4 Coulter-Nile to Nielsen full on the pads and he whips this beautifully through square leg picking the gap and finding the rope! There was a huge gap between straight midwicket and deep backward square FOUR
