- Senior pacer Peter Siddle was caught planting a kiss on the cheek of his teammate Daniel Worrall.
- As far as the eventual result of the match is concerned, it did not go the Strikers' way.
Although it is usually all about action-packed entertaining cricket at the Big Bash League, one particular incident was something not very common to the spectators’ eyes in a game that is adrenaline-driven. While one may tend to expect sledging and a few verbal exchanges as part of the game, there was bromance at its best on display during the match between Sydney Sixers and Adelaide Strikers.
Senior pacer Peter Siddle who is playing for the Adelaide Strikers in the BBL was caught planting a kiss on the cheek of his teammate Daniel Worrall on the field at the Sydney Cricket Ground. While they were defending a total of 147 runs, Worrall had been handed the first over with captain Siddle fielding inside the circle. After he had delivered the first ball, the right-arm fast bowler was involved in a discussion with Siddle, the skipper, before the second ball.
It was here that the two might have exchanged something amusing as Siddle smiled and gave a kiss to Worrall. The latter did not shy away from it but looked comfortable with his skipper’s loving gesture. And as one would expect, the video of the incident has gone viral in no time.
Here is the clip:

Sydney Sixers win by 4 wickets
As far as the eventual result of the match is concerned, it did not go the Strikers’ way and as Sixers were able to reach their target with 4 balls to spare. Sixers’ Dan Christian was the key performer of the night as he scalped 3 wickets for 8 runs in his 3 overs along with Sean Abbott who also picked 3 for 24. In response, Jordan Silk made 36 from 24 and Moises Henriques chipped in with 28 from 26 balls which meant that even though Rashid Khan picked 3 for 20 it wasn’t enough for Strikers to win.
In the end, Abbott and Hayden Kerr also played the finishing role to perfection and finished with 19 runs from 10 balls and 8 runs from 2 balls respectively, scoring 2 boundaries and 1 six between them to finish off the job for Sixers.
