Over 20 Sydney Thunder 133/9/No

Rashid Khan has been awarded the Man of the Match for his all-round performance. So that is it from us for this game. The Adelaide Strikers bag another win and they now go to the top of the table. The Thunder on the other hand, have suffered their fourth loss and need to get back to winning ways as soon as possible if they are to finish in the top four. Big Bash action resumes tomorrow between Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Sixers in Hobart at 1810 local (0710 GMT). It will be followed by the Perth Scorchers taking on the Melbourne Renegades in Perth. Till then, take care and goodbye.
The Thunder on the other hand, lacked intent with the bat. No batsman could get in terms with the pace of the wicket and struggled to score runs. Kurtis Patterson scored 29 at more than a run-a-ball which saw them falling behind the rate required. He was the joint top scorer with Ben Rohrer who did provide some entertainment towards the end but it was all too late.
Another display of excellent bowling by the Strikers have helped them go to the top of table. Their bowling attack being their strength, chasing 159 for Thunder was never going to be easy. They were well placed after the Powerplay as they had 42 on the board without losing a wicket. But some tight bowling by Siddle and Rashid Khan chocked the run flow. They ended up with combined figures of 8-1-34-4. They were well supported by the rest as all the bowlers had a wicket to their name.
