    The Strikers would be happy with their bowling except for the performances of Wes Agar and Cameron Valente who were very expensive. The star for them was Peter Siddle who took a 3-fer and also bowled the final over which ultimately decided the match.

    The innings started positively for the Adelaide Strikers as they conceded just 39 runs in the first 6 overs and took 2 wickets as well. It was all going smooth until the halfway mark in the second innings for them. The game was turned on its head by skipper Glenn Maxwell as he came in and started hitting the bowlers all around the ground. However, he departed at a very crucial juncture, Coulter-Nile carried on from there hitting 20 runs off just 8 balls, setting up a very tense final over where they needed 12 runs. But Peter Siddle rose to the occasion and used all his experience to nail a perfect final over to help Adelaide Strikers win the match.

    What a thriller this has been! The Adelaide Strikers have come out on top in the final over and the hero for them at the death has been one of their experienced campaigners, Peter Siddle, who held his nerve and bowled beautifully in the last over giving away just 6 runs.

    Man of the Match, Jonathan Wells is down for an interview. He says that it was nail-biting stuff in the end and they are happy that they have got the win. Says that Peter Siddle is a team man and his execution under pressure was brilliant. Mentions how his passion is evident for everyone to see. Adds that the plan was to take the game deep and get 170 odd runs in the end. Ends by saying that it's been a superb turnaround for them in the last couple of days.

    Peter Siddle to Adam Zampa

    That is that! Siddle holds his nerve and delivers a wonderful last over for his side. Bowls a very full delivery on the pads, Zampa fails to get it away and it goes off his pads to short fine leg. ADELAIDE STRIKERS WIN BY 5 RUNS!

    Adam Zampa to face the final ball and he will have to hit it for a six to win the match. Can he be the hero?
