Adelaide Strikers win maiden Big Bash League crown after Jake Weatherald's hundred

Jake Weatherald hit eight sixes in his 115 for Adelaide Strikers

Weatherald was ably supported by captain Travis Head with an unbeaten 44 off 29 balls, but rather than focus on his performance the Australia worldwide hailed the Strikers' unity as they claimed the title in their first final.

D'Arch Short struggle against Adelaide Strikers bowling unit as he got the start but couldn't manage to pick up the win for Hurricane in the finals of BBL season 7.

The tournament with a duration of 47 long days which include action and drama spread over 13 venues in Australia, Adelaide Strikers and Hobart Hurricanes will lock horns in the final of the Big Bash League at the picturesque Adelaide Oval ground, on February 4 (Sunday). "I think it's tough to have a single policy we set at the beginning of the season and that's it, I think what's been good is the selectors have flexed and taken each moment into consideration".

Strikers seamer Billy Stanlake has not been granted the same dispensation due to concerns over the pace bowler's workload. He also stressed that Australian cricket needed to maintain a hierarchy where national team representation sat above the BBL.

"I obviously dreamt of this when I go to bed, but I never imagined this", the opener told Channel Ten.

"I was going to keep it simple when I went out. But it's definitely a goal to play Test cricket, that's for sure". "All I know is, no doubt the fans would want to see that, but from a player's point of view, for the health of the competition, a player's main priority has got to be that he wants to play for Australia No. 1".

Hobart lost Tim Paine (5) in the first over of their reply but a stand of 81 between Short and George Bailey (46 off 33 balls) gave the Hurricanes a glimmer of hope.

The stylish left-handed batsman played his first game in the Hurricanes' loss against the Strikers and in his only dig against Melbourne Stars, he was one of Hobart's better performers with 32 runs off 22 balls.

Both teams are likely to play off in the semi-final in a few weeks with the victor of that match to play Frenchville, which has cemented top spot.
