Strikers through into final

Sunday, February 04, 2018

PACEMAN Ben Laughlin says he buggered up the ball that sent the Adelaide Strikers into their first Big Bash League (BBL) grand final.

The Strikers pipped the Melbourne Renegades by one run in a Friday night semifinal thriller at Adelaide Oval.

Adelaide will host the Hobart Hurricanes in Sunday's final.

The Renegades' West Indian batsman Kieron Pollard needed three runs to win from Laughlin's final ball, but he swung and missed and the could only scamper one bye.

Laughlin, asked if he delivered the ultimate ball where he wanted, replied: "Hell no."

Chasing 179 to win, the Renegades finished 177-4.
