The stylish left-handed batsman played his first game in the Hurricanes' loss against the Strikers and in his only dig against Melbourne Stars, he was one of Hobart's better performers with 32 runs off 22 balls. They played total ten group stage matches in the season of Big Bash league and managed seven victories here. Both teams yet to win the title of Australian T20 league competition but the victor from the match which is Strikers has the maximum chance to win the title.

The skipper hammered Bravo over midwicket for six in the final over and struck eight boundaries, keeping the Strikers motoring as they posted a challenging target.

Archer has had an outstanding debut season in the BBL for the Hurricanes, with 15 wickets, making him the team's leading wicket-taker and fourth overall in BBL7.

Earlier, Adelaide Strikers won the toss and chose to bat first.

Weatherald and Strikers captain Travis Head kept the runs flowing with a magnificent 140-run partnership, during which Weatherald brought up his hundred.

It offers a bird's-eye view of the scene, giving a better idea of the magnitude of this powerful crash and the damage it caused. Sumwalt said they've recovered a forward facing video recorder, and that's already been sent back to Washington, D.C.

The Hurricanes stunned the Scorchers with an 80-run pummelling at the new Optus Stadium, and will feel they have nothing to lose, having scraped into the finals at 5-5. They lost four wickets.

So, Adelaide Strikers won by 1 run where the player of the match was Travis Head for his awesome innings. Marcus Harris scored 45 runs highest for Renegades.

With Travis Head, one more player of Adelaide Strikers played well and seen a half century who was Weatherald.

And when paceman Peter Siddle dismissed Ben McDermott - who copped an lbw shocker to a ball tracking well down leg side - the visitors required an unlikely 82 runs from 30 balls. Rest three players did not do their job well but wasted balls comparatively.

Kieron Pollard ... missed out for Renegades off the last ball of the match.
