Hussey 85 in vain as Thunder lose again

Seven hundred and thirty five days and counting. That's how long it has been since the Sydney Thunder last won in the Big Bash League and on Friday, not even the most remarkable innings from a most remarkable cricketer could break that drought

Tait to Woakes, no run, not really as Woakes misses a length delivery outside off and Adelaide Strikers won by it 6 runs.

Are we ahead for a super-over?

Tait to Hussey, OUT, and that's a big blow for the Thunder's and its Tait the striker. It was a fuller length delivery outside off and Hussey gets down on one knee and tries to hoick it over midwicket, got it at the toe end of the bat and skies towards long-on where Botha waits and grabs it.

0
Tait to Floros, no run, Floros misses a swing to a back of a length delivery, keeper did the best to gather that quickly, no chance of bye!

1
Tait to Hussey, 1 run, back of a length delivery on off, miscues a pull to off, Tait runs and fields it, he looks quite cool and composed, not the same from Mr Cricket!

Tait to Hussey, 1 wide, fuller and wide outside off, Hussey tries it best to reach it

deep: "That's why his mr.cricketer. dominted all formats for the game. I remember at one point people use to say he can't hit the ball hard . Seems like now now he didn't know any other way to play it"
