The Thunder jump up to fourth on 11.The BBL continues tomorrow, with another double header on show.

OUT! Run Out. Chris Morris to Nathan Lyon. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Ross, by Morris. Skewed out to the deep in the offside, they attempt to take on a risky second, but O'Keefe cannot make his ground. Quick work by Ross.A dismal display with the bat by the Sixers. It's a tough wicket to bat on, but 76 all out isn't a good showing. Fantastic bowling, and poor batting. Daniel Sams figures stand out from the rest, with three wickets to his name. It should be a straight forward chase for the Thunder, but a flurry of early wickets could change things.

W
OUT! Caught. Chris Morris to Jackson Bird. Off cutter half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by McAndrew. Change in pace from Morris, Bird is through the shot too early, and he toe ends it down to long off for a regulation catch.

OUT! Caught. Daniel Sams to Justin Avendano. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover, by Ferguson. Three for Sams. Avendano's resistance ends. He crunches a drive in the air, straight to extra cover, and Ferguson makes no mistake. The Sixers are eight down.

W
OUT! Caught. Daniel Sams to Ben Dwarshuis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Hales. Gone this time. Dwarshuis attempts to clear the rope, but miscues it on this occasion. Bat turned in the hands on impact, and Hales takes a smart catch on the boundary edge.

SIX! Nathan McAndrew to Justin Avendano. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Avendano flat-bats this back over the bowler's head, and it flies over the sightscreen for six.

SIX! Nathan McAndrew to Justin Avendano. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Where's that come from? Hardly a shot in anger all evening, and suddenly Avendano blasts one out the park. Front leg out the way, and the strike is sweet.
In over# 8

7.5
W
OUT! Run Out. Brendan Doggett to Justin Avendano. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, to mid wicket, run save by McAndrew, by Lenton. Huge mix up. Sensational bit of fielding from McAndrew, though. He flings himself to his right to pull off a one handed stop, and it causes a huge amount of confusion. Curran ends up stranded in the middle of the wicket, and the run out is easily completed.

W
OUT! Caught. Daniel Sams to Jordan Silk. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, to backward point, by Khawaja. Oh dear. It's all falling apart from the Sixers. Another tame dismissal, as Silk chops it straight into the hands of backward point. The ball holds in the surface slightly, and that causes him to mis-time his stroke. Easily pouched by Khawaja.

OUT! Caught. Brendan Doggett to James Vince. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, to mid on, by Morris. What is happening to the Sixers? Doggett now strikes with his first delivery. Vince looks to whip it through the onside, but he is through the shot a little too early. He ends up chipping it straight into the hands of mid on. Very soft.

OUT! Caught. Chris Morris to Moises Henriques. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Lenton. The Sixers are in all sorts of trouble here. This is a snorter from Morris. It lifts up off the surface to brush the glove of Henriques, and the keeper gobbles up the chance behind the stumps. Unplayable delivery.

W
OUT! L.B.W. Gurinder Sandhu to Josh Philippe. Half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to. Sandhu strikes first ball! Full, straight, and it beats Philippe for pace. The keeper-batsman shuffled across, was going too square with his shot, and was pinned right in front. Easy decision for the umpire.

OUT! Run Out. Chris Morris to Daniel Hughes. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to silly point, direct hit by Morris. Brilliant bit of footwork from Chris Morris. Hughes miscues it into the deck, and it trickles out next to the stumps at the striker's end. Hughes wanders down the wicket, and is late in turning back. Morris sprints towards the ball and kicks it into the stumps. Out by a distance.

OUT! Caught. Jackson Bird to Alex Hales. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to point, by Silk. This is the kind of pitch that Bird will have success on. He gets Hales first ball. A bit of zip off the pitch, and it balloons up off the shoulder of the blade. Silks sprints in, and takes a good diving catch.
