    11.5 that's a big wicket and Klinger innings comes to an end. It was a yorker length delivery on middle and off and Klinger backs away to make some room and squeeze it to point, good pace there to beat his bat and it knocks his stumps 87/3
    2.5 and dangerous Hales back in the hut without contributing much. It was on a length on off and Hales stays on his crease and tries to hoick it to on side but ended up in a leading edge which skies towards extra cover and Patterson grabs it running back 27/1
    8.4 tossed up delivery on middle and leg, Hughes gets down on one knee and tries to clear the long-on, didn't get the elevation nor the distance, it went flat and Morgan runs forward from the fence and holds a good low catch 67/2
    16.1 and Woakes gets a wicket straightaway, back of a length delivery angling in from outside off with good amount of bounce to Ferguson. He stays on his crease and tries to launch it over midwicket but holes out to Sandri at deep 113/4

    17.1 and Botha goes with a ugly shot, back of a length delivery which moves away after pitching on off. Botha goes back and tries to swing it to on side, leading edge went high towards gully and keeper runs to his right and takes the catch. 123/5
    17.5 and short ball is doing the trick for the Thunder's, keeps the same length once again on middle and off, Neser backs away and tries to hoick it over midwicket but top edged it and went miles high in the sky, Hughes settles underneath it by running back and grabs it 128/6

  • Hussey 85 in vain as Thunder lose again

    Seven hundred and thirty five days and counting. That's how long it has been since the Sydney Thunder last won in the Big Bash League and on Friday, not even the most remarkable innings from a most remarkable cricketer could break that drought
