Week 6 My Review (KFC BBL 2018/19)
It was another entertaining week of T20 cricket in the Big Bash; find out what happened.
Monday January 21st
Strikers v Hurricanes
The Strikers posted a reasonably competitive total of 154 runs for the loss of 5 wickets. Captain Colin Ingram led from the front with 67 not out to help the Strikers reach the score that they did. Unfortunately, Matthew Wade and Darcy Short made light work of the total that was set combining to reach the total set with an unbeaten 1st wicket partnership, meaning that the Hurricanes continued their good form winning the game by 10 wickets.
Tuesday January 22nd
Thunder v Renegades
The Renegades reached a reasonable total of 152 runs for the loss of 9 wickets, predominantly thanks to Aaron Finch and Cameron White who scored 54 and 40 runs respectively. The Thunder managed to defend the total that they set the Renegades, winning the game by 12 runs.
Wednesday January 23rd
Stars v Strikers
The Stars lost just 2 wickets reaching an impressive 167 runs. The Strikers weren’t at their best in response losing all 10 wickets, only scoring 123 runs. Liam Plunkett, Marcus Stoinis and Dwayne Bravo claimed 3 wickets each to help the Stars bowl the Strikers out.
Sixers v Hurricanes
The Hurricanes appeared to have set an unassailable target for the Sixers to chase down, reaching 172 runs for the loss of just 4 wickets, however the Sixers reached the total set with 9 wickets in hand.
Thursday January 24th
Scorchers v Thunder
The Scorchers batted extremely well setting a total of over 9 runs per over as a required run rate, mainly thanks to Shaun Marsh scoring 96 runs not out. Somehow the Thunder managed to chase down a total that appeared to be unassailable down, mainly thanks Callum Ferguson scoring an impressive unbeaten century.
Sunday January 27th
Stars v Heat
The Stars only set the Heat 135 runs to win the game, mainly thanks to Marcus Stoinis posting 43 runs. Fortunately for the Stars they bowled extremely well in defending the total that they set the Heat. Marcus Stoinis backed up his effort with the bat with 4 wickets with the bowl to help the Stars to an unlikely victory.
