So, that is it from myself, Karthik Raj and my co-commentator, Navjeevan Rajput. Do stay tuned to Sportskeeda's live coverage of a lot more cricket matches in the future
Darcie Brown: I was trying to pitch it up a bit. We were up and about from the start. It took me a little to get started today after playing the last game. I have been bowling a bit short here and there. Have been trying to make it a variation and not a normal thing. I haven't played at the Optus Stadium but it looks unreal looking at the AFL. I don't know about the travel plans but hopefully the flight isn't too early
That is it!! Katie Mack finishes off the match in style and Adelaide Strikers are into the final!!! They wrap up the match with nine wickets and 55 balls to spare. A target of 84 was never going to enough to defend for the Melbourne Renegades and it showed as both Mack and Dane van Niekerk came out attacking. The duo went onto 48 runs in the Powerplay and continued to be positive thereafter too. It was only in the tenth over when Van Niekerk holed out to mid-off off Carly Leeson's bowling.

However, it didn't matter as Laura Wolvaardt came out and unfurled a couple of graceful shots. In the end, the run-machine Katie Mack struck a boundary off Rhiaan O'Donnell to bring an end to the game. So, with this victory, Adelaide Strikers advance to the final where they will take on Perth Scorchers at the Optus Stadium on Saturday.
10.5 Rhiann O'Donnell to Katie Mack, THE STRIKERS ADVANCE INTO THE FINALS!! On the length and outside off, Mack comes down the track and slices that away over cover-point, and the ball races away to the ropes!
10.4 Rhiann O'Donnell to Laura Wolvaardt, LOVELY!! Full and just outside off, Laura beautifully drives that one through covers and gets three as the ball does not reach the ropes. 
10.3 Rhiann O'Donnell to Katie Mack, full and on the stumps, Mack drags that towards deep mid-wicket for just a single
10.2 Rhiann O'Donnell to Laura Wolvaardt, on the length and outside off, Laura guides this to short third and takes one. Strikers just one maximum away from a win here!!
10.1 Rhiann O'Donnell to Laura Wolvaardt, WELL TIMED!! On the length and outside off, Laura gets on top and cuts that away through cover-point for four runs!!
