Strikers claim maiden BBL title with huge win

But whether Head is allowed to then fly back to Adelaide tomorrow, just in time for Adelaide's BBL grand final against Hobart Hurricanes, is uncertain.

Short led BBL scorers in the minor rounds with 504 runs from 10 innings.

O'Connor was playing his first game of the tournament, replacing fellow tweaker Rashid Khan, who departed Adelaide for national duties with Afghanistan.

The tournament with a duration of 47 long days which include action and drama spread over 13 venues in Australia, Adelaide Strikers and Hobart Hurricanes will lock horns in the final of the Big Bash League at the picturesque Adelaide Oval ground, on February 4 (Sunday).

Trump 'not conscious' of United Kingdom royal wedding ceremony invite
Yeah, I'd go back in. "I would love to, but it's got to be a good deal for the United States", he added. Trump has been hoping to be given a state visit, which would guarantee him a meeting with Her Majesty.

Even a fifty from D'Arcy Short and 46 from Hurricanes captain George Bailey wasn't enough as could only manage 177/5 and fell short of claiming their maiden BBL title.

Siddle soon outed Hobart's dangerman Short in a superb spell of 3-17 from the most economical four overs of the match.

Weatherald got to the mark off just 58 balls in the 16th over of the innings.

Earlier, Weatherald cracked the first century in a BBL final, and the competition's third-highest score.

Spokeswoman Anna Heaton said Friday the governor is studying whether the potential move could interfere with other investigations. Nassar, 54, of Holt, already has been sentenced to 60 years in prison on three federal charges related to child pornography.

Head struck 57 runs from 57 balls with eight boundaries and a six to his name while Weatherald made 57 runs from 43 balls with the help of seven fours and a maximum. Ash Gardner of the Sixers had plenty to say about the scheduling, and I reckon we'd be hearing a lot more about it if the Sixers had gone down also.

"It was cool to get a century in front of my parents and play in front of such a crowd".

Earlier, Adelaide Strikers won the toss and made a decision to bat first.

Sarah Aley (Sixers) took four wickets for 23 runs in last year's final, and on Friday against the Strikers, took four wickets for 18 runs (with four for one run after her first two overs).
