9:15pm: Sixers are out of the tournament, but Thunder are still in contention. Many thanks for tuning in. Do swing over to the Perth Scorchers v Melbourne Stars clash

Watson, Man of the Match: We knew we had to win well. The last couple of games have been nice. Maddinson hits the ball all around the ground. Hussey is still hitting the ball well. It is only fitting we get another game for Hussey. We have stopped the momentum of losing, we have some winning momentum now.

Hussey: I was worried when Maddinson was batting but they guys held their nerve. It was a satisfying win. It will be nice if I get another game.
