PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Rashid Khan

19.6Valente to Richardson

W
OUT! CAUGHT! Superb catch by Philip Salt in the deep and the ADELAIDE STRIKERS HAVE WON BY 18 RUNS! Full ball on middle and leg, Richardson hits it hard towards the long on region. The ball almost goes the distance but Philip Salt on the fence takes a superb catch, getting up on his toes and doing brilliantly to maintain his balance. He just about manages to stay on the field and complete the catch. Sums up the fielding efforts of the Strikers throughout the match and they will be very happy with it.

Very full ball on off, Richardson scoops it towards covers and the ball falls just short of Rashid who collects it on the bounce. Single taken.

19.1Valente to Boyce

W
OUT! BOWLED! Valente delivers a peach and Boyce has been sent packing. Final nail in the coffin maybe for the Renegades. Yorker on off, Boyce looks to shuffle and scoop but misses. The ball crashes into the off pole and Boyce has to return to the dugout. The Renegades need 23 off 5 now with a new man coming in. Miracle needed!

18.6Agar to Webster

Awesome bowling by Agar as he finishes the over with a yorker. Webster shuffles and looks to go for the paddle scoop but misses. 23 needed off the last over!

17.4Siddle to Webster

6
SIX! But what an effort from the deep square leg fielder. A short ball on middle, Webster this time swivels and pulls it over deep square leg. The fielder there runs to his right and leaps to take the catch. He does so but his momentum takes him towards the ropes. He realizes that and loops the ball to another fielder. However, the fielder is not sure if that is a clean catch and the third umpire has been called on. While taking the catch, the fielder put his legs on the rope so six it is.

17.3Siddle to Webster

16.3Khan to Webster

1
Bizarre stuff going on here at the Marvel Stadium! Rashid bowls a beauty, floating one up just outside off. The ball goes straight on and Webster misses his flick. Or so did everyone think! The Strikers appeal and the umpire seemed to raise his finger but then he started to SCRATCH HIS NOSE! The Strikers thought that they had got their man and started celebrating but instead the batters steal a run. A lot of confusion out in the middle. Rashid goes and has a talk with the umpire but nothing doing as the umpire thinks it was off the inside edge. In case there was no inside edge, it would have been plumb and the Ball Tracker confirms it by showing three reds. Comical incident and the social media surely will see the funnier side of it. Bring on the memes!

Again floated ball on the pads, Webster flicks this towards mid-wicket for one.

15.1Siddle to Boyce

14.3Khan to Sutherland

W
OUT! TIMBER! Rashid, you beauty! He has weaved his web around Sutherland and he has no answers for this one. This time Rashid floats one full and just outside off, it is the googly. Sutherland fails to pick it up and looks to flick. It sneaks through his bat and pad and shatters the stumps behind. Renegades in further turmoil now.

14.2Khan to Sutherland

12.6Agar to Christian

W
OUT! RUN OUT! How quickly can this game turn around? Strikers have struck like lightning here shocking the Renegades. A good length ball on middle and leg bowled by Agar, Christian pushes this one down to mid on where Salt is positioned. He rushes to the ball and goes for the direct hit at the non-striker's end. He hits bull's-eye and the whole Strikers team is celebrating. They know that they have got their man but the umpire wants to refer it upstairs. Christian is already walking back and the replays confirm that he is indeed well short. Three wickets in an over and half the side back in the hut for the Melbourne Renegades.

12.5Agar to Webster

1
Length ball on off, guided towards third man for a single.

12.4Agar to Webster

0
