W
OUT! Caught. Daniel Sams to Ben Laughlin. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Ross. That will do it. Laughlin takes on the longest boundary in the ground, and doesn't get close to clearing it. Ross mops up in the deep, swallowing up the catch.Sydney Thunder take the points in the first match of the BBL this year. Fully deserved. Callum Ferguson set things up with the bat, and gave the Heat a challenging total to get to. In the chase, the top order of Brisbane were going at everything, and it resulted in them losing wickets regularly. The wickets were shared around with the bowlers, but it was the spinners that really made it difficult for the batsmen. An excellent game of cricket to start this season.Join us again tomorrow for more Big Bash action, where the Scorchers take on the Sixers.

Daniel Sams to Zahir Khan. Length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to third man for 1 run, dropped catch by Cook. That could've have sealed it. First bit of sloppy work from the Thunder this evening. The ball flies down to third man, Cook comes running in, but shells the chance.

OUT! Bowled. Daniel Sams to Ben Cutting. Yorker, middle stump moves in front flick, missed to. Game over now. Marvellous death bowling from Sams. Cutting moves across, wanting to go legside, and he gets nutmegged. Inch perfect yorker, and it slips through to thud into the middle stump.

FOUR! Ben Laughlin to Arjun Nair. Short, outside off stump down the track cutting, top edge in the air uncontrolled past fine leg for 4 runs. Nair is down the pitch now, throws the bat at it, and gets enough on it to edge over the keeper for a one bounce four.Decent total on the board from the Thunder. Callum Ferguson the main contributor with his unbeaten 73, but Chris Green chipped in with a needed cameo as well. The spinners were the pick of the bowlers for the heat, so it was surprising that Swepson only got two overs. It is a good batting track, so this can go either way. It should be a thrilling chase.

FOUR! Ben Laughlin to Callum Ferguson. Half volley, to leg down the track driving, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. Pretty unlucky for the bowler. Ferguson comes charging down, is late in bringing the bat down, but gets a streaky inside edge for four.

SIX! Josh Lalor to Callum Ferguson. Full toss, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Ferguson skips down the pitch, and makes this into a full toss. Lofted down the ground, and he gets enough distance on it to clear the fence.

OUT! Caught & Bowled. Ben Cutting to Chris Green. Off cutter back of a length, off stump on the front foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to short mid wicket, by Cutting.

SIX! Ben Laughlin to Chris Green. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled over deep backward square leg for 6 runs, dropped catch by Bryant. Dropped into the rope! Handy runs for the Thunder. Green is flapping at the bouncer, gets a big top edge, and it should really be taken in the deep. Bryant misjudged the flight, and that made things a lot more difficult. Over the shoulder, and spilled into the boundary for six.

FOUR! Ben Laughlin to Chris Green. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. In the slot, Green clears the front leg, and pumps this to the mid wicket fence. Lands just inside the rope.

Start of Sydney Thunder Innings. Welcome to the opening game of this season of the BBL. Sydney Thunder have won the toss at the The Gabba and elected to bat first. This competition is always a popular T20 franchise tournament. It is the ninth edition, and no doubt it will still be fast, entertaining, and fun for all the viewers. There will be plenty of young, exciting, Australian talent, as well as the best overseas players, on show. Hopefully these two teams can kick things off with a cracker.

OUT! Caught. Daniel Sams to Ben Laughlin. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Ross. That will do it. Laughlin takes on the longest boundary in the ground, and doesn't get close to clearing it. Ross mops up in the deep, swallowing up the catch.Sydney Thunder take the points in the first match of the BBL this year. Fully deserved. Callum Ferguson set things up with the bat, and gave the Heat a challenging total to get to. In the chase, the top order of Brisbane were going at everything, and it resulted in them losing wickets regularly. The wickets were shared around with the bowlers, but it was the spinners that really made it difficult for the batsmen. An excellent game of cricket to start this season.Join us again tomorrow for more Big Bash action, where the Scorchers take on the Sixers.

OUT! Caught. Arjun Nair to Sam Heazlett. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Hales. Good bowling, but a questionable shot selection from Heazlett. Tossed up high and wide, and that meant the left hander had to really reach for it to drag it into the onside. Off the toe end, and a regulation catch for long on. The Heat are in a bit of trouble.

Banton got off to a flyer. He skips down to Cook here, and clips it nicely into the legside. Perhaps timed it too well, as the ball carries all the way out to the fielder in the deep. Not sure what he was attempting there, but it was a false stroke.
