Hobart Hurricanes beat Adelaide Strikers by 11 runs!

What a thrilling contest this turned out to be. Coming in to chase 175 runs, AS did not have the best of starts as James Faulkner [4-0-21-3] and Johan Botha [3-0-20-2] the Hobart Hurricanes veterans delivered the early blows to them. Strikers were on the back foot. Both the Strikers openers departed early.

Matt Renshaw (33 off 27) and Harry Nielsen looked to set in and started to get the boundaries but Harry became a bit too greedy and lost his wicket in trying to collect another of Johan's bowling.

Unfortunately, wickets just kept tumbling one after another for Strikers and they lost half their side while crossing the 50 run mark. Matt was the only batsman who showed some resistance. For the Bash Points, Strikers need to chase get 19 runs at halfway mark. Matt and Daniel did well as they hammered a couple of sixes but fell 2 runs short of the required target.

As the game looked in favor of the Hurricanes, Daniel Worrall (62 off 39) and Danny Briggs (36 off 18) played few fantastic shots and provided the entertainment which had worn off! The pair manages to stay unbeaten till the end and had a 61 run stand between them for the final wicket.

In the final over, 18 runs were needed, Scott who came on to bowl the final over did well to not concede a boundary. The Hurricanes fielders got serious in that over and did a fine job to stop the ball on the fence and in the end, the Strikers just fell short by 11 runs!

Looking back, Strikers batting just looked a bit rusty for the day, if they had fired off, it would probably have been a different outcome for this match.

Hurricanes also have a few concerns to look upon as they had a shaky start but D'Arcy Short (72 off 48) ensured that his side reaches a commanding total in the end.

D'Arcy Short was also named the Player Of The Match for his good performance with the bat.
WOW, in the end, it's a victory that we thought. Strikers tale has managed to make it a fantastic game out of this one, keeping everyone at the edge of their seats. Hobart Hurricanes win this match by 11 runs!
