My daughter Mayura Kim and I were there to feast on a six-hitting feast from the Riverbank Stand! …. Six from the Strikers and NINE from the Scorchers …. but the STRIKERS won!
A brief drizzle interruption turned it into a 18-over match

END OF OVER:
Adelaide Strikers win by 15 runs after a brilliant comeback with the ball. The Scorchers were 0 for 124 in the ninth over and then they fell apart, starting with two in two balls to Rashid Khan, followed by some excellent death bowling from Wes Agar and Harry Conway. It’s been a wonderfully entertaining T20 match, dominated by the bat but good bowling has been on display as well.
Ron: “We all know that was an amazing batting show, but that’s Rashid’s game. He turned that. Unbelievable.”
The Scorchers will wonder what went wrong, the Strikers that gets their winning underway. I’ll wrap things up there for tonight. …. Goodnight and thanks for joining.
