Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

Adelaide Strikers win by five wickets and open the defence of their title in very positive fashion. A poor night for the Heat in front of a big home crowd. They lost 8 for 51 before a last-wicket stand gave them something to bowl at. Alex Carey then led the run chase and the Heat couldn’t strike often enough to create real pressure.

Shiva pops up with a stat: “Fifth successive loss for Heat in the BBL. They had lost their last four in a row last season. This equals their worst streak in the BBL (5 consec. losses in 2014-15 season).

There was a dose of controversy tonight as well with the bizarre run out situation involving James Pattinson, but it reached a sensible conclusion. We may hear more about it though. Alex will have his match wrap done shortly but, for now, it’s goodbye and we’ll see you for more BBL fun tomorrow.
