OUT! Caught. Peter Siddle to James Vince. Full toss, outside off stump on the back foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep cover, by Khan. Plucked by a diving Rashid Khan, Vince struck that nicely but picked him out. Siddle gets away with a full bunger, his front foot was very close to the line and it was almost over waist height - all that matters is the wicket for the Strikers.

SIX! Harry Conway to Josh Philippe. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump moves in front flick, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Filthy full toss, a real gift for the opener to smoke it high and handsome for a pressure-relieving maximum. Strikers need some wickets, they aren't going to come from deliveries like that. Neser will feel even worse about the dropped catch now.

Harry Conway to Josh Philippe. Slower ball half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to third man for 2 runs, dropped catch by Neser, mis-fielded by Neser. How important could this moment be? Neser has a golden opportunity to send the dangerous Philippe on his way but it pops out of his grasp. Simple chance, big miss.

Tom Curran to Jonathan Wells. Half volley, off stump down the track driving, to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Edwards. Adelaide Strikers have compiled a handy looking 6-176 in Coffs Harbour, leaving Sydney Sixers with an interesting chase on their hands. When Weatherald and Salt got the innings off to a flier it seemed as though 200 was on the cards, however Hazlewood pulled things back for the men in magenta with a skilful display on his return to BBL cricket. Wells held things together for the visitors with an unbeaten 40, while Neser contributed a few lusty blows in the death overs.

FOUR! Tom Curran to Rashid Khan. Half volley, outside off stump Deep in crease driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Rashid swirls his bat around helicopter-style and the ball sails over the helpless fielders. Not sure it was entirely intentional but he'll take it.

OUT! Run Out. Lloyd Pope to Jonathan Wells. Leg spinner half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, mis-fielded by Curran, by Philippe. Oh no, disaster for the Strikers as complete confusion leads to a run out. Never run on a misfield is what they say, Short obviously doesn't agree with that as he attempts to pinch an additional run. Philippe almost made a mess of it with the ball popping out of his gloves but the third umpire deems it to be okay.

OUT! Caught. Lloyd Pope to Cameron White. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Edwards.

OUT! Caught. Lloyd Pope to Philip Salt. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Vince. Taken in the deep, one Englishman catches another. It's not the greatest delivery Pope will ever bowl but he'll celebrate the wicket anyway as his excellent season continues. Salt walks off furious, he picked the longest pocket on the field when he should have smashed it out of the park.

Start of Adelaide Strikers Innings. Beautiful Coffs Harbour is the setting tonight for a mouth-watering BBL contest with the Sixers taking on the Strikers in front of a sell-out crowd. Both teams have had decent starts to their campaigns but momentum is always important in T20 so they will want to carry on winning to keep up with the table-topping Stars. Normal skipper Moises Henriques misses out for the Sixers tonight to be at the birth of his first child, so Dan Hughes takes the reins in his place. Josh Hazlewood is also included in his first BBL game for six years. Meanwhile the Strikers make a couple of changes to their playing eleven, bringing in Michael Neser and Harry Conway.

OUT! Caught. Harry Conway to Justin Avendano. Length ball, outside off stump moves in front Slog, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to short third man, by Carey. Ambitious heave across the line and the ball goes way into the night sky. It practically comes back down with snow on it, Carey keeps his cool to cling on and give the Strikers the breakthrough they so badly desire. That was a handy little cameo by Avendano though, he played some attractive shots.

SIX! Peter Siddle to Justin Avendano. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Oh my word, that is absolutely gigantic. Avendano shows no respect to the great Aussie fast bowler, launching Siddle's first ball of the match with complete disdain. Sixers fans are loving this.

Another massive strike, Avendano was anticipating the short ball and he got it right off the sweet spot. Strikers need to break this opening stand because the Sixers are in command.

Ferocious swing of the blade and the ball soars all the way over the fence. This is looking like a really solid powerplay for the Sixers now.

Stanlake is bowling some serious pace but Avendano isn't too fussed, he still has ample time to rock back and latch onto this. Almost the first six of the innings, an inch or two short of the rope.
