10.30 pm The Sixers do enough to win by eight wickets at the SCG. They inflict an important loss on the Thunder, which dents their hopes of a semi-final spot. The Thunder, though, can take credit for making it a much tighter game that what it seemed halfway through the second innings. Smiles all around in the Sixers camp as we big goodbye. Hope you enjoyed ESPNcricinfo's coverage of the Sydney derby from the Big Bash League. It's Sreshth Shah, bidding good bye!

Hughes: Lot of slower balls at the end, Nair bowled tight. Our spirits been high through the tournament. Hopefully we can stitch a few more wins together. We just wanted to run hard, and great to have Moises back in the field. Lots of new faces around the group, Carlos was awesome in the Powerplay with the ball.

Green to Henriques, 2 runs, full outside off, muscled square past midwicket to wide long off, Sandhu is sluggish in the deep, and that allows them to come back for the second. Sixers win by eight wickets, their first win of the season!

Change in the field. Long off goes back, square leg comes in. There's the man at deep midwicket. Short fine leg is in. So is short third man. Long off is back as well.

McClenaghan to Henriques, 2 runs, full toss on off stump, lifted to long on for a single. They want the second, though, and Hughes may be in trouble! Vince thorws in flat, and McClenaghan is positioned near the stumps, but Hughes' diving effort saves him. Sixers need nine to win off the final over.
