1st Innings Summary – After a nail-biting encounter in the game, both the teams were up against each other once again. Adelaide Strikers’ opener Sophie Devine was the first player to get out on the third ball of 8th over after hitting five 4s and two 6s in her short yet valuable innings. Skipper Suzie Bates also played a decent knock on the other end before getting LBW out by Heather Knight in 12th over. Batting at number three, Tahlia McGrath continued from where she left in the last match and played even better innings of 65 runs including eleven 4s and a six before getting out in the last over.

2nd Innings Summary – For Hobart Hurricanes, except Georgia Redmayne, those who batted well in last match got out early without doing much. Heather Knight contributed well and Stafanie Daffara played some good shots but it was too late for the team to brake their losing streak. Megan Schutt was the most successful bowler for Adelaide Strikers as she took three wickets in her four overs.
