’15 all out’: Adelaide Strikers bundle out Sydney Thunder for lowest T20 total ever | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: The Big Bash League Friday saw its former champions Sydney Thunder won the all-time lowest tally in a T20 senior cricket match. The Sydney Thunder, who won the 2015-16 edition of the league, were consolidated for just 15 runs by Adelaide Attackers at the Sydney Showground Stadium.
The Adelaide Strikers scored 139/9 and took just 5.5 overs to clear their opponents to record a comprehensive 124 run win in Game 5 of the 2022-23 BBL edition. Sydney’s tally of 15 all outs broke Turkey’s previous record of 21 all outs against the Czech Republic in 2019.
No Sydney Thunder batter has recorded double digits with Brendan Doggett leading with just 4 runs for them. Five batters were struck out for nothing in the innings.

Pacer Henry Thornton was Adelaide’s chief troubleshooter as he took a fife, 5 for 3 in 2.5 overs, while Wes Agar upturned numbers of 4 for 6 in 2 overs. Matthew Short (1/5) took the remaining wicket for Adelaide.
It was a low-scoring game with Adelaide Strikers to manage a sub-139/9 scoreline after opting to strike first. Chris Lynn (36) and Grandhomme’s Quail (33) were the main markers for them.
Here’s what Player of the Match Thornton said after the game:
“I have no idea what’s going on, it’s unbelievable. We thought they were playing really, really well considering what the wicket was doing, but we hung on for quite a while. I never seen nothing like it, amazing stuff to be honest we just thought if we could play over the stumps we knew clearly what we needed to run I think we had a lot of pseudo offs and Short took one of the best catches on the first slide. Really happy for Wes Agar, he was playing really well. Was super disciplined, great performance from him. Quite unique (bowling with three slides), I just couldn’t believe it. Lynn was like you wanted two or three slides, that was pretty amazing. having guys like Lynn next to you, that’s amazing. To be honest, I couldn’t believe it. I thought 150 would be good, but that turned out to be enough.
