ADS vs MLS, Adelaide

Adelaide Strikers won by 41 runs

Melbourne Stars - 137 (19.2 Ovs)
Adelaide Strikers - 178/5 (20 Ovs)

What a comprehensive win for Adelaide Strikers that was. Though they lost in the initial phases of both innings, it was during the crunch situations, where they clicked to perfection. Their openers failed but the middle order batsmen, including Ingram and Head came out on top with pivotal knocks. And in the second innings, although Stars were off to a flier, the Adelaide bowlers bounced back in fine fashion - striking at regular intervals and clinching the game convincingly. With this victory, Adelaide Strikers have moved up to the second position in the points table. We've got an off-day in the BBL tomorrow but on Sunday there are going to be as many as three league matches played. Can the Strikers keep up with their winning momentum then? Join us on Sunday to find that out. For now, it's a goodbye from us!
