Runs : 4 Bowler: Rashid Khan Wickets : 0
Over 5. Power Play Fielding. 6 runs. Bowler: Rashid Khan. Sydney Thunder: 1-40(rr 8.00)
4.3
.
Wide Rashid Khan to Callum Ferguson. Googly back of a length, middle stump moves in front Leave, shoulders arms to short fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Agar. The players are now walking off. It is a thick smoke across the ground and welfare of the players as well as the spectators has come into play. Unfortunately the wind has completely dropped at Manuka Oval and the smoke is unable to clear, lingering over the ground and causing the game to be called off. It's tough for the Thunder who were close to the minimum five overs required for a result, but their disappointment is tempered by the effects the conditions are having on those elsewhere.

FOUR! Rashid Khan to Callum Ferguson. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump moves in front pulling, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Too short and Ferguson slaps it hard square of the wicket. Not the best start to the over.

Chris Morris to Jonathan Wells. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Sams. Good fight shown by the Strikers after they were in big trouble early on. Jake Weatherald began by smashing a quickfire 42 before his captain and Jonathan Wells added some handy runs at the end. Sydney might be a little disappointed with the way the innings ended but it looks a belter of a track and their batsmen will be licking their lips before going out to bat.

Start of Adelaide Strikers Innings. The BBL party moves to Canberra as Sydney Thunder welcome the Adelaide Strikers. It was touch and go whether or not the game would go ahead because of the surrounding bushfires but thankfully the umpires have deemed it safe. That is good news for Adelaide as they are the only team to not have played a game this tournament.One change for Thunder from their previous match with Chris Morris replacing Nathan McAndrew while Adelaide have Phil Salt and Rashid Khan along with some explosive Aussies. We should be in for a cracker.

Wide Rashid Khan to Callum Ferguson. Googly back of a length, middle stump moves in front Leave, shoulders arms to short fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Agar. The players are now walking off. It is a thick smoke across the ground and welfare of the players as well as the spectators has come into play. Unfortunately the wind has completely dropped at Manuka Oval and the smoke is unable to clear, lingering over the ground and causing the game to be called off. It's tough for the Thunder who were close to the minimum five overs required for a result, but their disappointment is tempered by the effects the conditions are having on those elsewhere.
