Phew, that’ll take a while to sink in. Over 450 runs were composed and eventually, it was Adelaide Strikers who chased down 229 - the highest-ever run-chase in the history of the Big Bash League. For now, this is Megh Mandaliya, signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Ayan Chatterjee, and scorer/analyst Manish Bishnoi. Join us tomorrow as Sydney Sixers take on Melbourne Stars. See you there!
Matthew Short has been awarded the Player of the Match award for his breathtaking 100* off 59 balls.  
5:05 PM IST: What a game of cricket we have had here at the Adelaide Oval as the acting skipper Matthew Short leads from the front to power the Strikers to a 7-wicket win over the Hobart Hurricanes and snap their losing streak. The Hurricanes will be in shock as this is a record run chase here in Adelaide. What an evening we have had here.  

Chasing what looked like an improbable target of 230 for the win, Adelaide Strikers lost Ryan Gibson early. But then it was the Matthew Short and Chris Lynn show. The duo put on 124 runs for the second wicket to set up this chase. Chris Lynn scored a breathtaking 64 off 29 balls to set it up. When he was batting, Matthew Short was a sideshow. It was after Lynn's departure that he took control of the chase. Adam Hose came in and scored a crucial 38 off 22 balls. But it was the Matthew Short show as the acting skipper scored an unbeaten 100* off 59 balls to help his side snap a losing streak and win the game by 7 wickets with 3 balls left. What helped the Strikers was indisciplined bowling from the Hurricanes as they gave away as many as 21 extras to the batting side. 

Patrick Dooley was the pick of the bowlers with exceptional figures of 2/25 in 4 overs. The other wicket went to Tim David who had figures of 1/18 in 2 overs. The rest of the bowlers were wicketless and taken to the cleaners, especially Faheem Ashraf. He was awful, to say the least. They dropped crucial catches especially of Short early on and it has come back to bite them. This will be a bitter pill to swallow. 

Earlier in the game, Hobart Hurricanes put into bat first and got off to a roaring start from the start to the finish. The openers Caleb Jewell and Ben McDermott started it all with an 88-run stand for the first wicket inside 8 overs. Jewell scored 54 off 25 balls while McDermott scored 57 off 30 balls. Thereafter, Zak Crawley came and played a brilliant unbeaten knock of 54* off 28 balls. He was ably supported by Tim David who smacked an unbeaten 39* off 20 balls as the Hurricanes amassed a massive 229/4 in 20 overs with 6 extras given by the fielding side.

It was a hard day for the Strikers bowlers as most of them went for runs. Colin de Grandhomme picked up a couple of wickets but went for 45 runs in 4 overs. Matthew Short kept things tight in his 4 overs picking up a wicket and giving away 34 runs. The other wicket went to Harry Conway who also went the distance. Despite being wicketless, Rashid Khan was miserly giving away just 25 runs in 4 overs. This is his final game in this year’s BBL.  It turned out to be a good one as Adelaide won the game. 

So, a win for the Strikers over the Hurricanes by 7 wickets with 3 balls to spare to move upwards in the points table.   

WOW! A maiden hundred in BBL as Matthew Short leads from the front and guides the Adelaide Strikers to a sensational win at the Adelaide Oval. What scenes do we have here at the Adelaide Oval. 
19.3 F Ashraf to M Short
4 FOUURRR! Matthew Short brings up his century and Strikers have hunted down 230. Remarkable scenes here. This is the greatest run chase in the history of BBL. Fuller and outside off, Matthew bides at the crease and propels that past the extra cover for a boundary. Hugs all around for Matthew Short and as he returns back to the dugout, a standing ovation from the spectators follows. 
19.2 F Ashraf to M Short
4 FOURR! That will do it. Surely it's all done and dusted now. Another full toss from Ashraf in the middle, Matthew was quick to ramp that past the keeper for a boundary. 
Another umpire check to confirm here. Yes, he is well in. NOT OUT is the call on the screen. 
19.1 F Ashraf to M Short
2 Fuller and in the middle, Matthew covers the line and gently dabs that to deep mid-wicket for a quick couple. Excellent running between the wickets. 
Guess what, this is a no-ball for height. Colin gets a single and Short is back on strike. 
19.1 F Ashraf to Grandhomme
1nb NO BALL! Oh, no! Ashraf starts with a high full toss, on the middle, Colin fails to get underneath that and tucks that to short third man for a single.
12 runs are now needed off the final over. With 7 wickets in hand, one has got to back the batting side to win this. Faheem Ashraf will bowl this. Advantage to Strikers.

18.5 N Ellis to M Short
2 Fuller again on the middle, Matthew covers the line and drills that down the ground for a couple.
What a crucial blow from the skipper Matthew Short. The boundary that keeps Strikers afloat. 16 now needed off 8 balls. 
18.4 N Ellis to M Short
4 FOURR! That is clever batting from Matthew. Fuller and darted outside the off-stump mark, Matthew hunches down and carves that in between point and third man for a boundary. 
18.3 N Ellis to Grandhomme
1 Pitched up and slower outside off, Colin opens the face early and uppishly chips that to deep mid-wicket for a single. 
18.2 N Ellis to M Short
1 Low-full toss, outside off, Matthew takes a stride forward and goes for a big heave but gets the toe end of his bat that goes to long-on for a single.
