Disciplined bowling helped Sydney Thunder restrict Adelaide Strikers for 159/6 in the first innings of the 51st match of the Big Bash League(BBL).
Opting to bat first, Strikers got off to a decent start scoring 27 runs in the first four overs of the powerplay without losing any wicket.
Alex Carey, who scored a century in the last game, was the first to get out after scoring 29 off 23 balls. Jake Weatherald was looking good during his 26-ball-31 before bizarrely getting run-out. He hit two fours and two sixes during his innings.
