What an incredible game of T20 cricket! The Hurricanes looked gone for all money, but Shah and Birt fought back but fell just short at the finish line.

The win means the Hurricanes grip on first place isn't quite as tight, with the Perth Scorchers breathing right down their neck. Man of the Match is the veteran Matthew Hayden, who held off strong competition from Birt and Shah. Thanks for your company, good night.
