It was good fun, the boys set it up though for me to come out and put a few swings on it. They played really well. It was about time I put a swing on it. I did a bit of work with the coach. My thought hadn’t changed after that partnership between Maxi and Beau, they put us in a position where I could come in and express myself. Otherwise, I would have looked to dig deeper and take my time. Once you hit a few in the middle, the body seems to organise itself. It’s lovely here, beautiful crowd, 44,000 people, great way to spend New Year’s Eve. Couldn’t have more fun.

This thrilling encounter showcased the T20 excitement, with both teams putting up commendable performances. The Melbourne Stars will carry this momentum forward in the Big Bash League, while the Adelaide Strikers will look to bounce back in their upcoming matches.
