Adelaide Strikers vs Hobart Hurricanes BBL

04 February 2018

D'Arcy Short rounded off a fine season in the BBL with a 44-ball 68 but the Hurricanes never really threatened to chase down such an imposing total, finishing on 177-5, Peter Siddle taking 3-17 for the Strikers.

Weatherald got to the mark off just 58 balls in the 16th over of the innings.

Head is flying from Adelaide to Sydney this morning to rejoin the Australian Twenty20 squad for a game he won't play - the tri-series opener against New Zealand. Better known as a batter, she made 42 last time these two sides played, but again managed two wickets for 15 runs.

For his part, Bailey too was full of praise for his opponents.

Skipper Head joined Weatherald out in the middle and the two combined for a 140-run stand that virtually took the game away from Hobart even before the halfway mark.

"I reckon he hit a lot of balls where we talked about not letting him hit balls", Bailey said, his typical smile more of a grimace. He also stressed that Australian cricket needed to maintain a hierarchy where national team representation sat above the BBL. So, Strikers will face Hurricanes in final and would probably beat them there.

The South hopes to relieve tension in the region after a period of animosity and diplomatic stalemate over the North's nuclear and missile programs.

"I'm not sure if there were different circumstances around that - maybe in my situation they didn't know what the team was going to be before they released it". Looking at it from the SACA perspective there's a lot of guys in there that are playing Shield cricket for us and it's great for South Australia but it's also great for the Strikers.

"It was very proactive from the selectors and (coach) Darren (Lehmann) to give me the opportunity", Head said. "The fans expect us to win and it's nice to repay that faith".

Pollard then drilled the first ball from seamer Ben Laughlin to the straight boundary before squeezing out a yorker for a single, leaving the visitors needing just eight runs from the last four balls.
