Wells smashes 'biggest six' in BBL

  Wells smashes 'biggest six' in BBL During the last over of the Strikers innings, Jonathan Wells latched onto a delivery sending it 104m over the SCG stands and out of sight. “(That’s the) biggest six of the tournament. Can he repeat it?” said commentator Mark Howard.“That is an enormous hit, that’s hit the roof,” Ricky Ponting replied. “I’ve only seen that once before, when Hansie Cronje hit Shane Warne over there many, many years ago.”In addition, an unbeaten Alex Carey smashed 83 guiding the Strikers to 3-167.

Spinner Ish Sodhi grabbed six wickets in a man-of-the-match display as the Adelaide Strikers crushed the Sydney Thunder away from home.

A late-innings onslaught from Colin Ingram and Rashid Khan has helped Adelaide Strikers post a score of 7-158 in their BBL match against Sydney Thunder at Spotless Stadium on Sunday.

Coming off a rapid-fire 66 in his last game, South African Ingram belted 48 off 31 balls with four sixes and two fours.

Ingram survived a couple of strong lbw appeals, but gave their Innings some much-needed momentum after Alex Carey (34 off 28) was the only Striker to get going in the first ten overs.

Green gave away just seven singles of his first three overs, but went for 15 in his last.

The Strikers, who won the toss, are fourth on six points, one spot and two points above the Thunder.
