Some of the finest performances at the inaugural edition of the DP World ILT20 have come from the Gulf Giants, who have had captain James Vince lead from the front, with three half-centuries so far.
Gulf Giants recorded their fourth successive victory through a five-wicket win while Desert Vipers crashed to their first defeat despite Alex Hales' scintillating knock of 99 off 57 balls with 10 boundaries and five sixes.
BBL, Adelaide Strikers smash record: Matthew Short was the star of the show as he hit a boundary to bring up his ton and also took his team to victory. He remained unbeaten on 100 off 59 balls.
