Adelaide Strikers are set to host the Hobart Hurricanes at Karen Rolton Oval, Adelaide, South Australia on Wednesday side in an epic clash. Both the bottom-placed team will take on each other and will try to win this dead rubber contest. Last time both these teams collided with each other on Tuesday, the game went into the super over. We can expect something similar heading into this contest and anticipate a thrilling encounter.

Hurricanes opted to chase after winning the toss on Tuesday and asked Adelaide Strikers to bat first. Sophie Devine played an amazing inning and scored unbeaten 99 and missed a deserving century. T McGrath played another quick-fire knock and scored 63 of 42 deliveries. They managed to put 189 runs on board. Hobart Hurricanes came out to bat and scored exactly 189 runs in their twenty overs. Smriti Madhana started off the chase brilliantly and scored 52 runs off 25 balls. Georgia Redmayne’s (54* of 37) and Sasha Moloney’s (23 of 16) fought well and managed to tie the scores and that lead to super over.     

Hurricanes batted first in the Super Over and managed to score 12 runs for 1 wicket. Adelaide Strikers needed 13 runs to win the match and Sophie Devine did the job in just three balls with two sixes and a four.
