View dismissal TD Paine*† c †Hartley b McKay 23 38 26 2 0 88.46
8.4 a feather to the keeper! McKay has had that happy knack of hoodwinking batsmen today. What seemed like the perfect ball to dab towards third man bounces a touch more than Paine expected. Little nick taken for Hartley to mop up an easy catch 60/3
View dismissal BR Dunk c Russell b McKay 15 13 10 2 0 150.00
3.1 and its worked! This is a scary old top edge. Both for the batsman and the fielder. Went so far in the air that both of them would have been queasy. Indeed, Russell seemed to have misjudged that when he stopped about three yards from the where the ball was set to drop. But the supreme athlete that he is, he figured it out, moved forward and took it simply. Back of a length ball, went for the heave into the leg side, mistake. 24/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c †Hartley b McKay 16 21 14 1 0 114.28
8.1 and he's done it again! First-ball wicket off a new spell, but its a terribly way to go for Sanga. It's a short ball from around the wicket and tailing down leg. He goes for the pull and feathers and edge through to the wicketkeeper 55/2
GJ Bailey not out 56 51 29 6 2 193.10
View dismissal DT Christian c Russell b Fawad Ahmed 5 3 4 1 0 125.00
9.4 you beauty! Andre Russell has moved to his left, dived full length and snaps up a two-handed screamer! This was nailed too - Fawad put this in the slog and Christian went for the off drive and had nearly placed it well enough wide of the fielder. Except the man there was probably the best athlete in world cricket right now. The third umpire is being called in to make sure the catch is clean and the ball did not touch the turf as Russell fell to the ground. To me, it did not. And it's been given out 67/4
View dismissal JW Wells c †Hartley b Kallis 27 28 28 4 0 96.42
17.2 short of a length, so Wells backs away and sets up for the cut, but that extra bounce does the batsman in again. Solid nick through to the keeper 125/5
View dismissal DJG Sammy c Green b McKay 18 10 10 0 1 180.00
19.4 104 kph, that time the change of pace works! Sammy goes for the pull to deep midwicket, and picks out the man 158/6

  Sydney Thunder innings (target: 164 runs from 20 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal JH Kallis c Wells b Tait 0 3 4 0 0 0.00
0.4 that's a big wicket and has been brought about because of his pace. Banged in short outside off, Kallis arches back to glide it over point, but the ball flies low to Wells who takes a good catch at backward point. Dream start for the Hurricanes in front of a festive New Year's Day crowd 1/1
View dismissal AC Blizzard c Boyce b Reed 23 32 21 4 0 109.52
7.3 as easy as they come. Short, enough width to play the slash, he goes too hard at it, but only manages a thick edge that flies to the third man fielder who takes it well. Had to run in a couple of metres from the ropes and he took it quite comfortably. Blizzard was just starting to settle in 63/3
View dismissal SR Watson c †Paine b Tait 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
0.6 that is a delightful delivery, sheer pace and Watson's gone! Full and angling in from wide of the crease, the ball dips away late, Watson looks to play that down the ground but plays inside the line of the ball as the thin edge flies through to Tim Paine. Watto was disappointed with the decision, not sure why. There was a definite edge there. 1/2
View dismissal MEK Hussey* c Rose b Reed 71 66 51 10 1 139.21
17.1 another one bites the dust. This one was floated full, was slanting across as well, Hussey went for an almighty slog across the line, only managed a top edge that was swirling for a long, long time. The fielder at deep square leg ran around the ropes, realised it was getting away, but quickly adjusted to pull off a good low catch. Is there another twist? 137/6
View dismissal BJ Rohrer c Christian b Boyce 20 27 18 2 0 111.11
14.5 gets the elevation but not the distance as Dan Christian runs to his right from long-on and takes a good running catch. Is that the wicket that applies the choke even more? Rohrer was just getting increasingly frustrated, looked to hit that straight as a dye but dragged it a bit and the catch was taken quite cleanly. Wasn't all that easy but Christian made it look that way 113/4
View dismissal AD Russell c Wells b Boyce 8 7 5 0 1 160.00
16.3 steps out but can't get to the pitch, and the fielder running in from deep cover dives forward to take a good, low catch. It was dying on him but he was clear, at no stage did he look like backing off and Wells holds on to it finally. Russell's threat ends, but has it come a little too late for the Hurricanes? 132/5
View dismissal CJ Green c †Paine b Reed 5 6 4 1 0 125.00
17.3 what is happening here? The Hurricanes can do no wrong suddenly. It was full, he looks to back away and go over cover, only manages to get a thick edge as Paine dives full length to his right to pouch that off like a goal keeper. Green is gone! 138/8
View dismissal CD Hartley run out (Christian) 0 1 0 0 0 -
17.2 Reed to Green, driven wide of long-on but some poor running between the wickets coupled with an outstanding piece of fielding by Christian has resulted in another wicket. It was a flat-batted pull, Christian was off the blocks immediately, got to the ball and fired a rocket throw, even the dive couldn't save him. 138/7
CJ McKay not out 2 13 3 0 0 66.66
View dismissal GS Sandhu b Tait 7 5 7 1 0 100.00
18.4 got him this time with a beauty! Float it full and a touch ahead of good length on middle, Sandhu swings but can't connect as the ball cannons into the stumps. 145/9
