That's it from me(Pratyush) and my colleague, Pradeep. Thank you for joining us and we hope you enjoyed that coverage as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you! Join us tomorrow for the Match 30 of the BBL, as Perth Scorchers take on the Sydney Sixers. Bye bye for now!
Man of the Match : Ryan Gibson.

Ryan Gibson : It was a nice little period for me. Good to spend some time out in the middle which I haven't done much lately. It was about playing proper cricketing shots as we knew it was a good batting surface. It (the season) has been a bit of a whirlwind and great to be part of this team. The class that we have with our bowlers, we know we can defend anything. Playing at home in front of our home crowd is massive, hopefully this is the jump-start we needed to go deep in the tournament.

Interesting choice for Man of the Match. Gibson ended 43 not out, was part of that momentum-shifting partnership that spanned the Power Surge heading into the final overs with Weatherald who actually made a half-century but is bypassed for match honors. I don't think he'll care too much in a win though.
A comfortable victory for the Adelaide Strikers! They seemed to be in all sorts of trouble early on in their innings but a skipper, Alex Carey stabilized the innings, alongside Matt Renshaw. Imad Wasim struck twice for the Renegades, dismissing both set batsmen, in quick succession as the Strikers slipped to 72/4 after 11 overs. However, a match defining 96-run stand between Ryan Gibson and Jake Weatherald got the Strikers to 171 at the end of their 20 overs.

It was a disastrous start for the Renegades as skipper, Aaron Finch had to walk on the very first delivery after edging a delivery down the leg side. Mackenzie Harvey and Sam Harper got a solid partnership going but the wickets tumbled after Harper departed just before drinks. The Renegades went from 67/1 after 9 overs, to being all out on 111, in a colossal collapse, as the wickets fell like a deck of cards. All the Adelaide bowlers had a great day in the field, as Wes Agar and Peter Siddle got 3 wickets each. Danny Briggs had a superb outing with the ball, getting the crucial wicket of Sam Harper and Beau Webster, spinning the match in his side's favour. 

A brilliant all round performance from the Adelaide Strikers as they remain at 4th place on the table, while the miserable form for Melbourne Renegades continues as they still sit at the bottom of the table.

That's a wrap! Siddle cleans him up and gets his third wicket! What a bowling performance this was from the Strikers, putting the Renegades batsmen under the pump, as their miserable form with the bat continues.

A convincing victory for Adelaide Strikers as they win by 60 runs. 
19.1 Peter Siddle to Noor Ahmad, OUT! CASTLED! All over for Renegades as Siddle bowls a smearing yorker on the middle and leg line and Noor has no idea about that one as he misses that yorker which rattles his stumps in the end. Strikers win this by 60 runs in the end!
It's just a matter of completing the formalities now as Melbourne Renegades continue to fall apart. It's going to be a convincing victory for the Adelaide Strikers as they've dismantled this Renegades batting line up.
Over: 19 | Summary: 1lb 1 1 1 W 1 Bowler: Wes Agar Score: 111/9
18.6 Wes Agar to Noor Ahmad, full toss on the pads as Noor backs away to whip it towards deep mid-wicket fielder for a single to get off the mark
Noor Ahmad is the new man at the crease.
18.5 Wes Agar to Josh Lalor, OUT! CASTLED! Full and straight from Wes and he's credited with a wicket as Lalor goes for the almighty swing and misses, crashes onto the middle and off in the end. Renegades misery continues!
18.4 Wes Agar to Jake Fraser-McGurk, back of a length delivery as Jake backs away to pull this one towards deep square leg for a single
18.3 Wes Agar to Josh Lalor, GEEZ! That was a short delivery and on the money as it hurried onto Lalor who looked to sway away but ends up hitting him on the chin or on the helmet and they pick up a quick leg-bye in the end
18.2 Wes Agar to Jake Fraser-McGurk, short delivery, banged it in as he followed Jake who was moving across the crease and he ends up tapping it on the on-side for a single
18.1 Wes Agar to Josh Lalor, full and straight from Wes as Lalor fails to get any bat on that, raps on the pads in the and. Huge appeal from Wes Agar and Umpire rejects it as they run a quick leg-bye
Wes Agar comes back into the attack.
Fraser-McGurk has looked decent since coming out and it was a perplexing decision sending Mohammad Nabi in before him. Perhaps something to learn from for the Renegades, as their misery in the tournament continues. Peter Siddle gets his second wicket of the day and it's all smiles from the experienced man and the Strikers as they look to wrap this game up!
