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.
