I was waiting for this opportunity for the last 3 years, worked on my craft and waited for the chance. Hilton was batting beautifully, I thought if I could get him, we'd win the game, I was working on my variations and skills. Wasn't nervous, that's what waiting for 3 years makes you. I love the group, having a fantastic set of guys, they have been so welcoming - happy and fortunate at getting this opportunity with the Strikers. 13:20 Local Time: The Stars just couldn't get going. The target of 156 wasn't a lot, the pitch was flat, but the Strikers were extremely accurate at the start, breaking the back of Melbourne's top-order, post which the intent in the batting to go for the chase just went missing. But let's not take credit away from the Strikers, and especially Henry Thorton, who bowled with a lot of pace. He started off cleaning up a dangerous-looking Maxwell, before Fawad Ahmed got Stoinis with an age-old ripping leg-break to reduce the Stars to 37/4. Although Burns and Cartwright did rebuild the innings, they just didn't up the gear. And despite Cartwright's 22-run smacking of Fawad towards the end, it was all a little too few, a little too late. So this win then keeps Adelaide at number four on the points table, with their qualification hopes in their own hands now. Okay, we'll stop now, and until we see you in a few hours for the second game tonight, ta ta!! MLS: 132-8 after 20 overs 19.6 Siddle to Brody Couch, 1 run, quite a tame end to what's been a pretty tame innings. The ball's full, on the stumps and Couch goes for an almighty heave, inside-edging it onto his own shoe before trickling away into the off-side 19.5 Siddle to Brody Couch, 2 runs, full, and a miscued loft straight down the ground 19.4 Siddle to Brody Couch, no run, and another one.

And Thornton has four, his career-best figures. Full, at pace, tailing in at the stumps, and a little too good for Rainbird, who backs away, swings, misses, and finds his leg-stump knocked back.
