BBL 10: Melbourne Renegades Suffers Heavy Defeat Against Adelaide Strikers
Adelaide Strikers bowled out Melbourne Renegades for mere 111 runs to win the 29th match of Big Bash League(BBL) by 60 runs on Tuesday.
Peter Siddle and Wes Agar combined to take three wickets each to wreck the Renegades batting line up.

Earlier, Jake Weatherald and Ryan Gibson took Strikers to a total of 171 after a slow start to the innings. The two added 96 runs in 52 balls as the team scored 101 runs off the final nine overs.
