Right! How does the points table look? The Strikers have jumped to third spot with 3 points from 2 games. The Scorchers are dumped to 7th from 2 points in 3 games. The final Big Bash game before Christmas sees an afternoon fixture - as Hobart Hurricanes take on Melbourne Renegades at the Bellerive Oval. Join us on Tuesday, 24th December, 2019 at 2.45 pm local (0345 GMT). ADIOS! TAKE CARE!

Earlier, the Scorchers' bowlers were put to the sword by Jake Weatherald and Alex Carey. The visitors had no answer to their carnage and almost conceded 200 in 18 overs. A forgetful day for the Men in Orange.

Have to blame the Scorchers for losing this. 75 needed from 55 balls, with 8 wickets in hand, albeit having two new batsmen in the middle. All they needed was one good partnership and one solid hand. Sadly for them, no one hung around. First Rashid choked them and then the others came to the party at the death. Khan finished with 3 wickets while Conway and Wes Agar got 2 apiece.

Okay. So what happened? First the Strikers pummeled the Scorchers to rocket to 198, that too, in just 18 overs. Then, they were given the same treatment as the opening pair of Josh Inglis and Liam Livingstone clobbered 124 runs inside 9 overs and the game looked dead and buried there. But Rashid Khan's inspirational second over turned things on its head as he dismissed both openers in successive balls. The Scorchers could never recover.

JAKE WEATHERALD HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. Is proud to be part of such a great game and lauds the batsmen and the bowlers. Admits that the pitch was really good and praises his bowlers for holding their nerves in a tight situation.

Victorious Adelaide Strikers captain, Alex Carey holds the trophy aloft. Thanks the crowd for coming in large numbers and praises his players for pulling things back superbly.

Coach Jason Gillespie looks a relieved man. The Jason Gillespie Trophy is retained by the Strikers. More importantly, the Blues are on the board. A superb turnaround by Alex Carey's men to upstage the game.
