12.2 to SR Watson, caught by Bird at the edge of the long-on boundary! Length ball on middle and leg, Watson stretches forward, lofts, and holes out. Dwarshius come back and strikes. 108/2
17.5 to MEK Hussey, Bollinger knocks back the leg stump. Length ball, Hussey targets midwicket with a big swing but misses. Bollinger hits and has the zing bails flying. End of Hussey's last competitive innings at the SCG. He raises his bat acknowledges the crowd. 175/4

18.5 to AD Russell, Long-off (Botha) takes it, and parries it over to Silk. Smart tag-team effort in the deep. Short and outside off, Russell loads up for a slog and skies it to the long-off region. No fifty for Russell. 185/5

Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Michael Lumb, 1.3 ov), 2-45 (Ed Cowan, 4.4 ov), 3-101 (Brad Haddin, 9.2 ov), 4-118 (Nic Maddinson, 12.3 ov), 5-135 (Ben Dwarshuis, 14.2 ov), 6-139 (Johan Botha, 14.5 ov), 7-148 (Jordan Silk, 15.4 ov), 8-149 (Nathan Lyon, 15.6 ov), 9-155 (Jackson Bird, 17.1 ov), 10-156 (Doug Bollinger, 17.3 ov)
4.4 to EJM Cowan, ramped into the lap of third man. Lifting ball on middle, Cowan leans back and upper-cuts it to McKay, who hangs onto the catch even as he loses his balance. Russell hands Thunder the breakthrough. 45/2
1.3 to MJ Lumb, six and out! Lumb holes out to third man. McAndrew takes a sharp, running catch. Lumb targets the leg side but only skews it in the air off a leading edge. The debutant does well to snap it up. 13/1
17.1 to JM Bird, banged in short on middle, Bird pulls and holes out to Watson at long leg. Sixers are falling away. 155/9
17.3 to DE Bollinger, McKay finishes it off! Well-disguised slower ball bouncer, that's too good for a No.11. Bollinger gets into an awkward tangle and pops a catch to short fine leg, running in. 156/10
12.3 to NJ Maddinson, Nicholls completes a good catch at long-on. Maddinson's blitz is over. Ahmed tosses this up, the batsman skips out and drags it. Instead of swinging it away cleanly. The new bat didn't bring him luck. "Disappointing to get out, the ball was there [to be hit]", says Maddinson. Things would have been a lot different had Ahmed caught Maddinson on his first ball at fine leg. 118/4
14.2 to BJ Dwarshuis, Dwarshius has run past a slider. The batsman steps out, this is darted outside off. Dwarshuis does not lay bat on it. Hartley takes the bails off. 135/5
14.5 to J Botha, looped up around off, invites the batsman to go for a big hit. Botha lofts it into the lap of Nicholls at long-off. Dolly catch. 139/6
9.2 to BJ Haddin, flighted on middle and leg from round the stumps, Haddin goes for a slog-sweep and the ball drops down into the hands of McKay at long leg. 101/3
15.4 to JC Silk, Silk jumps outside leg, attempts another lofted hit off a quicker ball. Silk connected well but flat to Nicholls, again. The spinners are squeezing Sixers. 148/7
15.6 to NM Lyon, Green roars, he takes his third wicket. Lyon out for a first-ball duck. Slides on, fizzes off the surface at 91ks. Lyon slogs across the line and misses. The stumps are rattled. 149/8
