Cricket news - Short, Jewell shine in Hurricanes' thumping win

D'Arcy Short notched up an unbeaten fifty.

Hobart Hurricanes vs Brisbane Heat

D'Arcy Short (68*) and Caleb Jewell (61*) notched up fifties as Hobart Hurricanes thumped Brisbane Heat by a margin of nine wickets in a Big Bash League game played in Hobart. Hurricanes chased down the target of 146 in just the 15th over.

In pursuit of a rather modest target, Ben Cutting dismissed Matthew Wade early to leave Hurricanes at 14 for 1. However, Short and Jewell joined forces to put Hurricanes back on top. Both batsmen looked to take the aggressive route, cracking eight fours and one six each. Mujeeb Ur Rahman, in particular, came in for some severe punishment, ending up with figures of none for 41. Short finished the match in style by crunching a boundary off Mitchell Swepson through covers.

Earlier, Alex Ross (62), batting at No.6, stitched a stand of 109 with Jimmy Peirson (50) for the fifth wicket to help Heat recover from a precariously-placed 27 for 4. David Moody, Jofra Archer and James Faulkner picked up two scalps each for Hurricanes. Archer also pouched a stunning catch at deep midwicket to send Max Bryant back to the hut.

Hurricanes are perched at the top of the table with 18 while the Heat franchise have just seven points to their name.

Brief scores: Brisbane Heat 145/6 in 20 overs (Alex Ross 62, Jimmy Peirson 50; James Faulkner 2-27, David Moody 2-27) lost to Hobart Hurricanes 146/1 in 14.2 overs (D'Arcy Short 68*, Caleb Jewell 61*) by nine wickets.

Sydney Strikers v Adelaide Strikers

Moises Henriques (61*) and Daniel Hughes (51*) strung together an unbeaten stand of 106 for the second wicket to help Sydney Sixers crush defending champions Adelaide Strikers by eight wickets. Sixers chased down the target of 125 in just the 15th over.

Billy Stanlake and Michael Neser shared a wicket each to reduce Sixers to 24 for 2. At that stage, Hughes and Henriques combined to put Sixers on course for a comfortable victory. Henriques gave a glimpse of his power-hitting by tonking five fours and four sixes. He took a heavy toll of Strikers' star bowler, Rashid Khan, by clobbering him for a couple of sixes and a boundary in the 13th over.

The all rounder also completed the formalities with a six off Peter Siddle. For Strikers, Jake Lehmann top-scored with 46. Neser, batting lower down the order, contributed a useful 31. However, only Jonathan Wells was the only other batsman who was able to cross the 20-run mark as Strikers ended up with a below par total. Ben Dwarshuis was the chief wicket-taker for Sixers with three scalps.

Adelaide Strikers 124/8 in 20 overs (Jake Lehmann 46; Ben Dwarshuis 3-7) lost to Sydney Sixers 130/2 in 14.1 runs (Moises Henriques 61*, Daniel Hughes 51*; Michael Neser 1-11) by eight wickets.
