Rashid”s hat-trick opened the game for the Strikers who had only managed to score 135 in their allotted 20 overs.
After scoring just 135 in their 20 overs, it was upto the Strikers bowlers to make something out of the game. At 75/3 , Sixers were in the drivers seat and were going well until a thunder named Rashid Khan hit them.

Rashid Khan first took the wicket of the English International James Vince and then followed it up with the wickets of Jack Edwars and Jordan Silk to claim yet another hat-trick .
But then it was the partnership between Tom Curran and Ben Dwarshius which helped the Sixers win the game comfortably even after the Afghan had broken the backboe of the sixers batting line up.
Along with Tom Curran it was the new Chennai Super Kings recruit and the birthday boy Josh Hazelwood who hit three onsecutive fours to seal the deal for the Sixers and which also meant that the Sydney Sixers consolidated their top position on the points table.
The Adelaide Strikers have now lost three consecutive games in the big bash league which means they have dropped to fourth position.
