Sydney Thunder have been bowled out within the powerplay and this is the lowest total in senior T20 cricket, in today’s BBL 2022-23 match.
BBL 2022-23 : Thunder have been bowled out for 15.
Very underwhelming score by the Strikers, as Adelaide Strikers are 139/9 (20).
They did not get going at all, except for the Lynn and de Grandhomme stand.
But just when the duo were looking dangerous, Lynn threw it away and in the same over, de Grandhomme too fell. That robbed the innings of any momentum down the back-end.
The Thunder’s seamers were superb with Fazalhaq Farooqi leading the way. The others supported him well and Sandhu with the ball and on the field was outstanding as well. A below-par score by the Strikers on a good pitch.
And in response, Sydney Thunder have been bowled out within the powerplay and this is the lowest total in senior T20 cricket.
Thornton and West Agar have bowled sensational spells as they end up picking five wickets and four wickets each.
Shocking performance by the Sydney Thunder though. They lost a couple of early wickets due to some brilliance in the field by the Thunder fielders, but Thornton and Agar ripped them apart thereafter.
Henry Thornton, Player of the Match: Have no clue what’s going on, it’s amazing. We thought they bowled really, really well considering what the wicket was doing, but we hung in there long enough. Haven’t seen anything similar to this ever, unbelievable stuff to be honest. We just thought that if we could bowl on top of the stumps, we were clear on what we have to execute.
Nielsen ended with five catches and the Thunder batters literally had no answers against the new ball. It’s going to be quite difficult for the Thunder to bounce back from such an embarrassing loss.
