ScheduleMonday, 12 January 2015 at 08:40 GMT / 08:40 UK / 14:10 IST
The batting line up of Adelaide Strikers crumbled in their previous match against Perth Scorchers who won by a margin of 18 runs. That was the maiden defeat for the former in the Big Bash League, 2014-15, from five games they played. Sydney Thunder faced their third loss of the event when Hobart Hurricanes grabbed the game by five wickets (D/L method). Adelaide Strikers have accumulated eight points from five matches while Sydney Thunder got just four out of five as well.
Tim Ludeman was the only batsman of Adelaide Strikers who reached the twenty runs mark against Perth Scorchers as the entire team was bowled out for 115 runs while chasing 134. Travis Head, Craig Simmons, Jono Dean and Ryan ten Doeschate are capable of turning the game towards them with their composed batting. Ben Laughlin, Adam Zampa, Shaun Tait and Kane Richardson have bowled exceptionally well during the tournament.
Daniel Hughes along with Mark Cosgrove were the highest run makers for Sydney Thunder vs. Hobart Hurricanes with 26, 22 and none other reached the double figures. Jacques Kallis, Michael Hussey and Aiden Blizzard have registered quite a few runs in the event. Their bowling department is being looked after by Gurinder Sandhu, Kallis, Pat Cummins and Nathan Hauritz.
