Hobart Hurricanes had 5-14 from Dan Christian and explosive batting from openers Short & Paine to thank in an 8 wicket win over Adelaide Strikers.
Tim Paine hit 65 from 52 balls as the Hobart Hurricanes booked their place in Friday’s BIG FINAL by beating the Melbourne Stars by 7 wickets with 11 balls to spare at the MCG.
The Melbourne Stars have accepted a formal apology from Tim Paine over comments he made on Melbourne radio station SEN about the Melbourne Stars. The Stars will take no further action.
The Western Warriors youngster Cameron Bancroft has narrowly missed out on his maiden Bupa Sheffield Shield century on an even opening day against Tasmania at Blundstone Arena on Sunday. Having been sent in to bat on an overcast morning, WA were bowled out for 258 late in the day, with Tasmania 0-7 at stumps in reply.
