The ex-The Glen player has played just three games this season including the semi-final win against Perth Scorchers and he makes way for in-form D'Arcy Short who has smashed 504 runs in the BBL. He scored 115 runs in only 70 balls which formed the bulk of Adelaide's total.

After a long tournament that ran for nearly two months, the two finalists, Adelaide Strikers and Hobart Hurricanes are set to clash for the coveted Big Bash League 2017/18 title.

Head's 85 was the difference between Adelaide and the Melbourne Renegades in Friday's semi-final, while wicketkeeper Alex Carey is the team's leading run-scorer this summer with 425 runs at 53.12.

Short went on to score 68 off 44 balls, which included six boundaries and four sixes, before he was caught behind off the bowling of Siddle.

The stalwart's dismissal left the Hurricanes at 2-87 and came in the midst of a vital spell from legspinner Liam O'Connor. Adelaide crowned its first BBL trophy. As a result, the Strikers finished on 202/2 off their 20 overs.

The duo combined for a 104-run second-wicket partnership from only 76 balls.

Weatherald was named Man of the Match.

"I'm not sure there were different circumstances around that, maybe in my situation they didn't know what the team was going to be before they released it, I don't know what the policy is or if there is one", White said. "It was cool to get a century".

Weatherald launched into Hobart's bowlers, reaching his ton from just 58 balls to thrill the parochial 40,732-strong Adelaide crowd.

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

Hobart Hurricanes have the likes of Jofra Archer.

Keeper Tim Paine has been permitted to front for the Hurricanes before leaving for Australia's four-Test tour of South Africa.

"If it had been one or two runs then you'd be really gutted but we were outplayed by some distance".
