Hobart Hurricanes win by seven wickets with five balls to spare after a masterful run chase. It was set up by Matthew Wade and D'Arcy Short, then finished by a big-hitting display from George Bailey. The best game of the BBL so far, some quality batting with Jos Buttler also in the run. Hurricanes' poor fielding display didn't cost them. Thunder couldn't make early inroads, but looked to be back in the match when Sam Rainbird struck twice late on. Bailey thought otherwise. Thanks for join us tonight, we'll be back tomorrow for Renegades v Strikers. For now, from Andrew McGlashan, it's goodnight
