Full commentary

Hurricanes win by 57 runs and might have got up to 5th place on the BBL table on net run-rate. That was a disaster for the Thunder. Not quite Brisbane Heat levels but they lost 8 for 28 after being 2 for 100 in the 13th over. Alex Hales was in control and D'Arcy Short changed the game with his maiden five-wicket haul in T20s. He bamboozled the Thunder middle order who played very carelessly.

D'Arcy Short is Player of the Match for his bowling performance. Thanks for your company from Hobart.

Ellis to Bowe, OUT
Mac Wright with a direct hit! The Hurricanes win. A yorker, he drives to mid off and runs, Wright has time to steady and fire and hit at the non-striker's and he's well short
L Bowe run out (Wright) 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
Ellis to Sandhu, OUT
Bowled him! 137kph, yorker hits the base of middle! He backs away and Ellis fires full and straight and it's way too quick. Middle is rocked back.
GS Sandhu b Ellis 2 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66
Ellis to Cook, 1 leg bye
Nearly a run out! Slower ball drifts into the pads, it rolls into the off side, they run, Ellis fields in his follow through and just misses with the underarm. He would have been out

Short to Sandhu, no run
quicker outside off, he cuts but misses
Short to Sandhu, 2 runs
shorter on leg, he's back and tucking this behind square for a couple

The Hurricanes could move to 5th on the table via NRR if the Thunder don't arrest this slide

Short to Nair, OUT
caught at deep forward square! Short has five! This was fuller, Nair tries to slog sweep and miscues completely, Miller runs in 20 metres and takes the catch well
AJ Nair c Miller b Short 4 (3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33
Short to Nair, FOUR runs
wrong un wide of off, he's back and cutting this hard forward of the point sweeper! A bad ball and it was hit well
