20th Over
And yes Man of Match is Brad Hodge.
Man of the Match is likely to go to Brad Hodge for his sensational innings.
So that is a great win by the Melbourne Stars and an entertaining chase by the Adelaide Strikers. A great spectacle.
Over 19.6: Rose to Pollard, SIX, Glorious shot to finish as he lofts a drive over long off for another 6. Worthy of facing the last ball there. Amazing with all his swing and misses he still gets 65 off 43 balls. ADS 4/167 (Johnston 8, Pollard 65)
Over 19.5: Rose to Pollard, no run, big swing and Pollard wants to face the last ball as he didn't even run even though it went down to deep mid wicket.
Over 19.4: Rose to Pollard, SIX, BANG!!! That is a huge hit over long on. Another lost ball in the construction area.
Over 19.3: Rose to Pollard, FOUR, big swinging outside edge bounces once over point boundary to bring up his 50.
Over 19.2: Rose to Johnston, one run, driven all the way along the gound to long on.
Over 19.1: Rose to Pollard, one run, drives to deep cover.
19th Over
Big over needed here. 27 off 6 balls. Rose to bowl.
Over 18.6: Malinga to Pollard, one run, driven to mid wicket. ADS 4/149 (Johnston 7, Pollard 48)
Over 18.5: Malinga to Pollard, FOUR, gets this ramp shot off the middle.
Over 18.4: Malinga to Pollard, two runs, turns to fine leg.
Over 18.3: Malinga to Pollard, three wides, tries the ramp scoop shot and misses, so does the keeper.
Over 18.3: Malinga to Johnston, one run, driven to long off.
Over 18.2: Malinga to Johnston, two runs, full toss hit over Malinga's head.
