Strikers triumph in Big Bash clash

ADELAIDE Strikers used some old tricks in the new Big Bash League to crush Melbourne Renegades by 67 runs on Sunday.

The Strikers blasted 5-189 from their 20 overs before suffocating the disappointing Renegades, who limped to 122 all out in 17.5 overs at Adelaide Oval.

Strikers coach Darren Berry masterminded a Twenty20 title for South Australia last season and he adopted the same winning blueprint for the new Adelaide entity.

Berry's opening batsmen Daniel Harris (49 from 33 balls) and Michael Klinger (46 from 35 deliveries) bravely built a run-scoring platform, as they did last summer.

Then the Strikers relied on a miserly spin bowling trio - Aaron O'Brien (2-34), Johan Botha (2-17) and Nathan Lyon (1-26) - to turn the screws.
