Heat’s batting order crumbles at the hands of Ingram & Co.

In spite of possessing some of the most destructive T20 batsmen in the World at the moment, Heats couldn’t create any opportunity for run-scoring which eventually cost them a highly coveted duel at their home turf.

Lynn (33), McCullum (2), Max Bryant (22) and Joe Burns(20) faltered to lay a concrete foundation in the middle and thus gave away their wickets at sheepish dismissals.

Rashid and Short strike early on to the Heat’s XI

The duo of Mathew Short and Rashid Khan tore apart the home team’s lineup at the early stages of the competition which solidified the chances of the visiting team’s victory.

While the former picked up a couple in exchange of fourteen runs in his spell, the latter was hardly bashed during his play as he scalped a triplet of wickets to annihilate the entire lineup before they could sweep few more runs under their belt.

Carey’s blistering fifty paved way for the Strikers’ victory

The wicket-keeper batsman’s mind-boggling innings gave the green signal for the Strikers’ triumph over a presumably formidable Heat’s unit.

Carey’s berserking inning comprised of 70 runs during a stay of 46 deliveries and comprised of 5-4s and 4-6s, which straightaway did the work of steering the Strikers onto the roads of victory.
