ADELAIDE HAND PERTH WOODEN SPOON
Jono Wells’ sparkling fifty and big-hitting cameo from Harry Nielsen help Adelaide to a five-wicket win to end season on a high
The Strikers win by five wickets with four balls to spare. A consolation prize for the Strikers. They win their last game of the season and avoid the wooden spoon. The Scorchers claim that unwanted crown after seven straight seasons of reaching the finals. Their horror year ends with a loss. Jono Wells was sensational in the chase making 69 off 42 and Harry Nielsen gave him great support. Jonathan Wells is named Player of the Match. That’s the first game of the double header completed.
