Hobart Hurricanes have kept their streak alive against Sydney Thunder. What a start to the New Year. There's plenty more cricket coming up. Until next time, it's goodbye from the commentary desk. Cheers

Shaun Tait: The wicket had a bit in it for the pacers, so that played to my advantage. i suppose the wickets we got before I came in for my second spell helped. The body's good, I'm loving my time with Hobart. It's quite relaxed and that helps brings the best out of the players.

Hurricanes are now fourth in the points table.

Hobart got two wickets in the first over, but the game could have slipped away from them so easily. But losing three wickets in an over in the second half of their chase nipped the game in the bud.

Incredible win for the Hobart Hurricanes. It was a win that didn't look possible when Mike Hussey was toying with the bowling, but they applied the squeeze quite superbly once he got out. Andre Russell was expected to play the role of the finisher, and he started well with a big six, but couldn't convert it on the night. A record crowd at the Blundstone Arena have got their monies worth. "Outstanding effort to defend this total, terrific catching from out guys." says Paine. "Cameron Boyce bowled superbly to tie Hussey down."
