New York 113/3 in 9.4 over's
Azam Khan 37(22) | Richard Gleeson 1/12
Eoin Morgan 32(21)| Fazalhaq Farooqi 1/14


What an absolute thriller of a contest we have just had! It was nerve wrecking till the very end as the pendulum swung from end to the other. In the end it was the big man and the New York Striker's skipper Kieron Pollard who got them over the line as he whacked his good mate Dwayne Bravo for 20 in just 4 balls, of the last over. The chase didn't really begin on an auspicious note for the Striker's as they lost two back to back wicket's early on. From there on, it was set up for them by Eoin Morgan and Azam Khan. Morgan departed for a really good 32, but Azam Khan stayed till the end to guide the chase and remained unbeaten on 37. In the end Kieron Pollard smashed 27 off just 8 balls to remind the fan's of his yesteryear brilliance and took the striker's home.

The Bulls, will be really disappointed with themselves as the game was well within their grasp at one stage. They bowled well for the major part of the chase, but faltered right at the end in the last two over's. Fazalhaq Farooqi and Richard Gleeson were the star's for them as they picked up the key wicket's and hardly gave away any runs.

Overall, a great win for the Striker's and they will go into the playoff's with a lot of momentum in their stride. The Bulls though, will have to regroup themselves and come back stronger as they desperately need the win's under their belt.
New York Striker's win by 7 wicket's!
9.4 Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, FOUR! The Strikers win by 7 wickets! Incredible stuff from the skipper. Back of a length and outside off, Pollard had enough time to get across as he heaves it over the midwicket region and get his side over the line.
9.3 Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, FOUR! Bravo has completely lost his line. Full toss with enough room for Pollard and he has pulled it through midwicket for a boundary! Strikers one hit away...
9.2 Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, SIX MORE! Slot delivery from bravo and Pollard has dispatched it with ease. He gets across the stumps and lofts it over the head of the bowler for another maximum!
9.1 Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, SIX! Pollard gets the perfect start to the over. Slow, and outside off from Bravo. Pollard gets across and muscles it over midwicket for a maximum!
Dwayne Bravo, (1.0-0-0-13) is back into the attack.

Massive over for the Striker's! It's just what the doctor had ordered for them. Shiraz Ahmed got his length's wrong and the two big hitter's Pollard and Azam didn't miss out on the opportunity. The game is back in balance now and we have a real thriller on our hand's going into the last over. The Striker's need 20 now.
