Champions League T20 - The Redbacks Strike Back!

Kolkata Knight Riders v South Australia Redbacks at Hyderabad
[scorecard]

Callum Ferguson... Australia's most extravagant omission

Since I have little time today let me just hammer some figures around your ears:

Callum Ferguson 70* off 40, Dan Christian 41 off 27

Dr. Daniel Harris due to another three wickets is currently second in the bowling table with Rusty Theron et al... lulz? And this ranking includes the wickets taken by bowlers in the qualification tournament as well!

The Redbacks have pulled this back magnificently here, of course you can't tell if dropping Tait and unfortunately also Rashid, and drafting Gary Putland and Kane Richardson in, effected the change of fortune or not, but the change worked insofar that they have won today. We have to take into consideration that South Australia could bat first and were thus, thanks to sensible batting all the way, in the position to confront KKR with the big total, which of course helps any bowler. But on the other hand Putland and Richo shared five wickets amongst them and bowled well in the given circumstances.

However, a win is a win. The team is now heading to Bangalore, hope they can take the momentum with them.

Onward and upward from here!!!


Cheers,
Wes

PS. Aaron O'Brien did not just bowl well (best econ), but he also took another ripper, just saying. If you are nice I will undig the GIF I made of stunner he took in the Big Bash^^

Callum Ferguson is still the cutest little rodent out there, isn't he?

His batting was excellent, all that timing going to good use.

I like how you put that "Let me just hammer some figures around your ears."

I agree - Callum Ferguson is adorable but the facial hair must be questioned.
