Adelaide Strikers edge out Melbourne Renegades to reach BBL final

D'Arch Short struggle against Adelaide Strikers bowling unit as he got the start but couldn't manage to pick up the win for Hurricane in the finals of BBL season 7.

CA was under fire from greats including Justin Langer and Mitchell Johnson over a BBL finals talent drain to Australian one-day and T20 commitments but won back some favour by clearing brilliant trio Head, Carey and Short to play.

The final will be played between Adelaide Strikers and Hobart Hurricanes on Sunday.

Melbourne Renegades captain Cameron White says he didn't understand Cricket Australia's decision to allow Travis Head to play in Friday night's Big Bash League semi-final but suggested that it was good for the competition that the Adelaide Strikers skipper was freed to play.

"I don't know what the policy is or if there is one". "I think it's tough to have a single policy we set at the beginning of the season and that's it, I think what's been good is the selectors have flexed and taken each moment into consideration".

Head was given a late release from the Australian Twenty20 squad to lead his Strikers and smacked an unbeaten 85 from 57 balls in Adelaide's 178-5.

Fowler leads heading into final day in Phoenix
Rahm , another Arizona State product and Phoenix's other beloved adopted son, is just a shot back of Fowler at 13 under. Thomas shot a triple bogey on the par-5 15th and then a double bogey on the par-3 16th to finish the day at even par .

"I obviously dream of this, but never imagined this", Weatherald said. I don't know what the answer is.

Hurricanes captain George Bailey, who will welcome Short back to the top of the order but is yet to decide whether he will be accompanied by Tim Paine or Matthew Wade, was grateful for the compromise.

"Sometimes you get lucky though, don't you?" Notably, the left-hander, who is at the top of the batting charts with 504 runs from 10 matches, missed the semi-final due to global duty.

The Hurricanes bowled far too short, and were hit to and over the square boundaries at Adelaide Oval, whereas the Adelaide Strikers bowlers kept a fuller length and bowled plenty of yorkers, especially Australia's former Test player Peter Siddle who took three for 17, as only D'Arcy Short with 68 off 44 balls threatened to knock off the target of 203.
