9.15pm A bummer for Sydney Thunder who were on top when the floodlights went off. Watson was not pleased that they had to call off the game, especially since the game needed just two more overs to make it official. But c'est la vie... as the teams settle for one point each. Watson's hundred will count in the record books, but it will be a rare ton that won't result in a victory. That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo for today... see you soon for more BBL.
9.12pm Chris Lynn and the umpires are having a chat. The Thunder players are out in the middle. Hopefully we'll have an update soon. And now the teams shake hands. It's a called-off game! Official.
8.50pm I'm told entire east Brisbane is under a power cut, and the matter is being investigated. The Thunder players don't look too happy. Wonder if some sort of an update has been passed on to them.
Some essential reading for you guys, if keen. I'm grabbing a cup of coffee. Colleague Deivarayan Muthu caught up with Thunder's Anton Devcich, and his has been quite a story.
Word from Sydney Thunder: "We have just been informed that play
needs to resume before 10.11pm (AEDT) to get a result. Hopefully they'll get the lights back on shortly."
8.37pm Daryl Harper in conversation with Shane Watson, presume it's briefing him about the situation and the overs we could lose.
8.30pm Gnasher tells me the outage isn't just restricted to the Gabba. So we could be in for a delay. Not sure how long just yet.
A tweet from Brisbane Heat: "Major power outage on Stanley and Vulture Street. Energex on-site."
John: "Looks like only the lights (I mean no lights and not bad lights!) can save the Heats now!"
chris: "Brisbane under the pump and the lights mysteriously go out. I smell a conspiracy!" -- Ha ha ha
One of the light towers has gone kaput. We will be in for a short delay in proceedings. Fans in the stands putting their torch lights on in a fun gesture, as if to say 'get on with this fellas'. A portion of lighting in the main grandstand has gone off too. Oh, dear. What is happening?
Gurinder Sandhu into the attack
Chris Lynn walks out at No.3
