Strikers to reinforce their BBL name favoritism with a seven wicket thrashing.
After electing to bat at Adelaide Oval, the Strikers' formidable
batting order displayed a solid overall, but was thwarted with the help of a commonly disciplined Scorchers attack.
David Payne, Lance Morris and Peter Hatzoglou caught 3 wickets a piece to

BBL, Payne swung the ball menacingly and returned to the backend to ignore Adam Hose
