Pollard's best sends
SYDNEY, Australia -- Kieron Pollard pro-
duced a season-best knock to hand Carlos
Brathwaite's Sydney Thunder a solid 77-run
defeat yesterday and end the reigning cham-
pions' dream of reaching the playoffs of the
Big Bash League.
The big-hitting Pollard slammed 47 off 22 deliv-
eries to help the previously bottom placed Adelaide
Strikers rack up 178 for five off their 20 overs at
the Sydney Showground Stadium. Needing to win
to have any chance of reaching the next round,
Sydney were then undermined by New Zealand
leg-spinner Ish Sodhi who snatched six for 11, as
the hosts tumbled to an embarrassing 101 all out
in the 16th over.
The defeat left Thunder as one of four teams on
six points but bottom of the standings courtesy
of net run rate, following their preliminary round
campaign. Strikers, already eliminated, moved up
to fifth on six points.
Sent in, Strikers benefitted from a top score of
65 off 40 balls from opener Ben Dunk, who put on
92 for the second wicket with captain Brad Hodge
whose 39 came from 32 balls.
Pollard, arriving at the crease in the 13th over,
smashed five sixes to give the visitors momentum
down the stretch. Brathwaite, in his third game for
Thunder, finished with one for 33 from his four
overs of medium pace.
In reply, the hosts were cruising at 60 for one
in the eighth over but suffered a sudden collapse
to lose their last eight wickets for 41 runs in the
space of 45 deliveries. (CMC)
