OUT! Bowled. Ben Laughlin to Jackson Bird. Half volley, off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to. Full, straight, and with Bird missing an ugly swipe, Laughlin hits.A convincing win for the Strikers. In the first ten overs of the game, it was actually in favour of the Stars. But a destructive finish to the Adelaide innings gave the hosts the momentum into their bowling. Contributions across the whole team, so a very satisfying win for the Strikers, who now jump up to second place. The Stars not at the races today, they remain in fifth.No BBL tomorrow, but we have a triple header on Sunday! That will be something to look forward to.

OUT! Bowled. Michael Neser to Scott Boland. Yorker, middle stump backing away driving, missed to. Wonderful death bowling. Speared into the base of middle and leg, Boland jumps outside leg to expose the wickets, and it rifles through to splatter into the stumps.

17.5
2
Ben Laughlin to Jackson Bird. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on for 2 runs, dropped catch by Short. Had to run in a long way to make it into a catch, but when Short gets to the ball, he'll be disappointed not to hold on. The momentum of him sprinting in meant he wasn't in the ideal position to take the catch. Bursts straight out the hands.

OUT! Caught. Rashid Khan to Dwayne Bravo. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Neser. You would say the Stars' chances are definitely over now. Bravo wants to hit the ball into orbit, but totally mis-hits it. It loops down the throat of long on for a simple chance. Rashid Khan has his first.

OUT! Bowled. Michael Neser to Liam Plunkett. Off cutter full toss, off stump on the front foot flick, missed to. Totally out-foxed. The change in pace works for Neser. Plunkett is oblivious to it, and is through the shot too early. A big swish, the ball dips underneath the bat, and thumps into the off pole.
