BBL 06: Twitter Reacts As Defending Champions Sydney Thunder Crash Out Of The Tournament

Adelaide Strikers ended their Big Bash League campaign on a high by thrashing defending champions Sydney Thunder by six wickets in their final match.

Needing a win to keep their hopes of qualifying for the semi-finals alive, Thunder skipper Shane Watson decided to chase. However, his decision did not look like a wise one as the Strikers posted a huge 178/5 in their 20 overs. Tim Ludeman (13) was dismissed cheaply but Ben Dunk (65 from 40) and Brad Hodge (39) had set the tone for their team with a 92-run partnership for the second wicket. Dunk and Hodge were dismissed in quick succession but Kieron Pollard took the Strikers to a good total by posting his highest score of this season. The West Indies all-rounder scored 47 off just 22 balls with the help of five sixes.

In reply, Thunder batsmen came a cropper against the spin of New Zealand tweaker Ish Sodhi as he took six wickets for only 11 runs to dismantle the defending champions. Apart from Kurtis Patterson and Watson, none of the Thunder player could get to the double-digit mark as they folded out for a paltry 101 in the 16th over.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the match:
