In a shocking display of batting, the Big Bash League (BBL) franchise, Sydney Thunder got bundled out for just 15 in the match against Adelaide Strikers, losing the game by 124 runs in BBL. The whole team only managed to make a score of 15, which is now the lowest score ever in the shortest format of the game. Henry Thorton bowled a phenomenal spell of five wickets for the Strikers and conceded just three runs and was the chief architect of the demolition.

What is quite shocking is that Thunder includes one of the best batters in the world when it comes to T20s. They are Alex Hales, and Rilee Rossouw who are some of the top batters in T20 cricket, and despite their presence, the team got bowled out for a meager score of 15.

Earlier, the Strikers won the toss and they posted 139/9 in 20 overs. Chris Lynn top-scored with 36 scored off 27 deliveries. Colin de Grandhomme played a decent knock of 33 off 24 balls that included 2 fours and 2 sixes respectively. It was a low total which means that the Sydney Showground Stadium in Sydney was tough to bat on.
