This is the fourth tie in BBL history, all involving Sydney Sixers. Will Sixers back Tom Curran to come out in the Super Over? He's played a blinder to get them here. Thunder involved in a massive team-meeting. Will it be Morris to bowl? Or are they looking towards Chris Green? Exciting stuff.

35,000 fans in at the SCG. No one has left. The noise has just cranked up to another level. Unbelievable atmosphere.

Sixers have won only one out of the four Super Overs they've been involved in. If the Super Over is tied, both sides will split points. No boundary count, remember, no boundary count.

Tremain to Curran, 1 run, OUT
we're going into a Super Over, folks. He pulls straight to deep square, has to turn back for the second, the throw is good, keeper alert, gathers the throw cleanly and gone! What a finish. It's not over yet.
TK Curran run out (Morris/†Gilkes) 35 (17b 5x4 1x6) SR: 205.88

Mid-on goes back

2 off the final ball now. Super over anyone?

Tremain to Curran, FOUR runs
yorker-length, he's got this through to the cover boundary! Oh you beauty, Tom Curran. Searching for a yorker, turns out to be the lowest of low full tosses but Curran finds enough bat and placement to get it past the ring at cover.

6 off 2

Tremain to Curran, 2 runs
toe-ends this towards long-off, they'll scamper two more

8 off 3

Tremain to Curran, 2 runs
into the blockhole, squirted past the circle at midwicket and they'll steal two

10 off 4

Tremain to Curran, no run
dug in short and angling away, beaten as he tries to arch back and help it over point. Dot ball

10 off 5

Tremain to Curran, SIX runs
he's hammered this over deep midwicket. Wow, what a start! Length on leg stump from around the wicket and he was waiting for it. Gave it a good biff when it arrived, beautiful swing to clear the longest part of the ground

Morris to Curran, 1 run
superb yorker, squeezes one off a thick inside edge, they'll take the single.
Morris to Curran, no run
looks to walk across to play the pick-up shot, misses. Morris went full and straight, hit him on the pad. Angle meant it was sliding down

bunts this full toss to cover
Morris to Dwarshuis, no run
yorker-length outside off, misses as he tries to carve this through point
Morris to Curran, 1 run
tipped over the bar! Ferguson leaps to grab this one-handed, only for the ball to slip out at extra cover. The batsman thought he was gone, incredible effort
Morris to Curran, FOUR runs
smacked the cover off the ball. Full, right in the slot and he gave it the full monty. No chance for deep cover

Stuart: "There is cutthroat competition. Jack Edwards may have played his last game for a while. That was a poor innings."

Jonathan Cook4-0-18-1
Morris to Curran, FOUR runs
he's absolutely clobbered this! Uses the depth of the crease to belt this length ball over extra cover. Top hit
Morris to Curran, FOUR runs
he's got a thick inside edge to the fine leg fence! Looks to walk across and flick, this one flew between his legs.
Morris to Curran, FOUR runs
edged and flies past short third man. Full toss wide outside off and he slashed hard to get plenty of wood

They wanted to see if both batsmen crossed over while the catch was taken. Tom Curran on strike

Morris to Edwards, OUT
whips this straight into Chris Green's bucket hands at deep midwicket. Would you believe it? It was a dolly of a full toss
J Edwards c Green b Morris 17 (21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.95
