Sydney Thunder can't seem to earn a point. The batting is too dependant on Gayle and the bowling too doesn't seem impressive. Hobart Hurricanes, on the other end have the best bowling attack in the tournament and their batting, too, is coming on well in the later stages of the tournament

Gayle leaves his stamp on the game, while fielding. Believe it or not. Triffitt goes for the slice and Gayle goes to his left, one-handed and comes up with a brilliant catch
