Win not enough for Thunder as Heat stay alive

Sydney Thunder needed to chase 166 in 11.3 overs to keep their semi-final hopes alive but it proved too steep a challenge

Scorecard summary
Hobart Hurricanes165/4(19 overs)
Sydney Thunder166/6(18.2 overs)

Too bad they can't progress. Thunder had to chase it down in 11.3 overs or fewer, once that didn't happen, the result automatically went out of the window. That said, it can't be too bad to sign off with a win. Over to tomorrow's game, then. Stars will qualify if they win, else Brisbane Heat will go through. Thanks for joining us on the coverage, hope to see you very soon.
