Prediction of cricket match: Lynn’s Power Hit helps Striker defeat Renegades

A 20-run victory over the Melbourne Renegades moved the Adelaide Strikers into third place in the points table. Again Chris Lynn scored 69* of his 37 balls, confirming Sam Harper’s his 36-ball 63-ball was not enough late in the game.

The Strikers hit first, playing 202/4. This was a total that could have been defended without Colin de Grandome, who was available in the second inning. His sixth option in bowling, the all-rounder, suffered a hamstring injury.

Openers Matthew Short and Ryan Gibson set the perfect platform adding 63 for the first wicket, but when Ruwantha Kellepotha were both overs shortly after a powerplay, Lynn was forced to take his lead. He did things so that his strikes never hurt the striker. Lynn (5 4, 3 6) and Adam Horse added 58 runs for his third wicket before his granddome came in, making 32 for 16 in his 64-run stance with Lynn. I hit it and stole the game. The Renegade were chasing a big total, going 49/3 in 7 overs. Harper (3 4, 4 6) and Jonathan Wells added 63 runs for 4 wickets but lost both set batsmen in short order. The Renegades never actually won on run rate, but guest appearances by Matthew Critchley (33*/19) and Will Sutherland (31/14) made it look closer than it actually was.

Brief Scores: Adelaide Strikers 202/4 (Lynn 69*; Kellepotha 2-32) beat Melbourne Renegades 182/6 (Harper 63; Wes Agar 2-26) by 20 runs
