7.40pm That is the Hurricanes' best performance of the tournament. They started cautiously, which I thought was a good strategy, but it didn't work. They scored just 34 in six overs. But then Wade and Short took on the boundaries, and they found them occasionally and went over them frequently. They rode on that momentum to carry the Hurricanes to 189, a fantastic score. Ben McDermott contributed a terrific 49 off just 25 balls, the kind of cameos that win you games. Back soon.

Ian: "Could Hurricanes have requested to keep McClennaghan in the attack? Rattled, missing his lengths, gone for 12 in 3. But ST get to replace him with Watto for final 3 balls."

Watson to Short, OUT, holes out on 97! Three runs will separate him from a maiden BBL hundred, but he's done exceptionally well to put the Hurricanes in prime position today. It's in the slot, on middle and leg, and I'd say if it was the third over of the innings, that would have gone for six. But he is slightly fatigued, so the ball lands in deep midwicket's hands
