Big Bash League

Melbourne Stars v Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder won by 6 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)

0.6

Faulkner to Gayle, OUT, and the roar gets higher as Faulkner deceives Gayle with a slower ball. He comes down the track and looks to loft it away. He is beaten by the slower ball. He looks to defend it but the ball is past the bottom edge. He looks back to see the stumps shattered and the fielders are ecstatic

CH Gayle b Faulkner 4 (5m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sydney Thunder 6/1   DA Warner 1* (2b)   JP Faulkner 1-0-6-1

3.3

McKay to Khawaja, OUT, good length ball outside the off stump and Khwaja is coming down the track as the ball was bowled. He chases the ball and gets a faint outside edge back to the keeper. More joy for the crowd at the G. They are raising up some noise in there

UT Khawaja c †Wade b McKay 3 (11m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Sydney Thunder 25/2   DA Warner 17* (10b 2x4)   CJ McKay 0.3-0-3-1

9.3

Wright to Smith, OUT, short ball outside the off stump. Smith comes down the track and slices the short ball straight into the waiting hands of Adam Voges at sweeper cover. Warner doing the running now. Memories of Hobart, anyone

DLR Smith c Voges b Wright 21 (24m 24b 3x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

Sydney Thunder 69/3   DA Warner 40* (22b 3x4 2x6)   LJ Wright 1.3-0-9-1

11.3

Faulkner to Philipson, OUT, short ball on the off stump. Philipson looks to pull it and gets a top edge to Hussey at mid-on. Easy pickings for Hussey these

CA Philipson c Hussey b Faulkner 2 (8m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

Sydney Thunder 86/4   DA Warner 55* (27b 3x4 4x6)   JP Faulkner 2.3-0-12-2
