OUT! Run Out. Chris Morris to Wes Agar. Yorker, outside off stump moves in front flick, missed to wicketkeeper, fielded by Gilkes, by Morris. Quality bowling from Morris. He keeps his composure to nail his yorker. Both batsmen end up at the striker's end as it goes through to the keeper, so a simple throw back to Morris and a run out seals the victory for the Thunder.What a thrilling game that was. It looked done and dusted with three overs to go, but Rashid Khan gave the Strikers some hope with a quickfire 40. Unfortunately for the hosts, he couldn't quite get his team over the line, and the Thunder sneaked home by three runs. Wonderful entertainment to finish off 2019.The BBL is back in 2020, with the Heat coming up against the Scorchers tomorrow morning. Join us again for that.
19.5
W
OUT! Run Out. Chris Morris to Rashid Khan. Full toss, down leg side backing away flick, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Nair, by Gilkes. A suicidal second run to try and get back on strike, but Rashid doesn't make it. Morris fires it into toes, and the fielder in the deep flings in an accurate throw to the keeper. Four runs required off the last! Can Wes Agar be the hero?

FOUR! Chris Morris to Rashid Khan. Half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past deep point for 4 runs. Brilliant from Rashid Khan! Nearly another superb yorker, but it gets spanked away through point for a one bounce four. What a finish we have here.

FOUR! Chris Morris to Rashid Khan. Yorker, off stump moves in front flick, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. How has he got bat on that? Rashid is falling over as he plays this. Terrific delivery from Morris in at the base of the stumps, but the Afghan man clips it past short fine leg for four.

APPEAL! Peter Siddle to Chris Green. Yorker, middle stump on the front foot driving, to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Salt, appeal made for Run Out. A cracking last over from Siddle, but that is still a decent total from the Thunder. Usman Khawaja started well at the top, and Callum Ferguson took over towards the latter part to boost up the score to 168. Rashid Khan had an off day for once, but the seamers did well for the Strikers. It is a good batting track, but this one could still go either way.

OUT! L.B.W. Peter Siddle to Daniel Sams. Full toss, off stump moves in front flick, hit pad to. Siddle goes full again, and Sams misses the full toss. That is absolutely plumb. Plays across his front pad, and that would've nailed the base of middle stump.

OUT! Bowled. Peter Siddle to Alex Ross. Half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to. Ross' starting position is well outside the off stump. Siddle challenges his legside game by firing it into the exposed leg stump, and he sends the pole flying. Missed the flick, and Siddle hit.

OUT! Caught. Rashid Khan to Callum Ferguson. Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump moves in front Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Wells. Tries for three in a row, but doesn't get enough distance on it. It came low off the bat, and looped down the throat of the fielder at deep mid wicket. The end of a incredible innings from Ferguson.

FREE HIT. SIX! Rashid Khan to Callum Ferguson. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump moves in front Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep square leg for 6 runs.

Start of Sydney Thunder Innings. Welcome to Match 17 of the BBL. Sydney Thunder have won the toss and elected to bat first. The final game of the year, and the decade, and what better host is there than the Adelaide Oval. The Strikers have won their last five games on this particular date, so it will be advantage to the home side going into this. They also sit at the top of the points table, and are unbeaten after four games. The Thunder have had a mixed bag, currently sitting in fourth on five points. Whatever the result, it should be a cracking game of cricket to take us into the new year.

OUT! Run Out. Chris Morris to Wes Agar. Yorker, outside off stump moves in front flick, missed to wicketkeeper, fielded by Gilkes, by Morris. Quality bowling from Morris. He keeps his composure to nail his yorker. Both batsmen end up at the striker's end as it goes through to the keeper, so a simple throw back to Morris and a run out seals the victory for the Thunder.What a thrilling game that was. It looked done and dusted with three overs to go, but Rashid Khan gave the Strikers some hope with a quickfire 40. Unfortunately for the hosts, he couldn't quite get his team over the line, and the Thunder sneaked home by three runs. Wonderful entertainment to finish off 2019.The BBL is back in 2020, with the Heat coming up against the Scorchers tomorrow morning. Join us again for that.
