10:38pm That is all we have from our coverage tonight! Thanks for coming, and see you soon.

Sam: "So Pranay keeps his virtual hat "

Wilthought: "appears that Coulter Nile's horrific misfield in the final over of the Thunder innings has come back to haunt them. "

Rat: "Coulter-Nile's tragic fumble cost them the match!"

Callum Ferguson is the Man of the Match.

10:31pm A win by one run! Sydney Thunder very nearly letting a massive advantage slip. But what a partnership between Turner and Bosisto. Came together at 54 for 5 at the start of the 12th over, with a required rate of nearly ten on a pitch that appeared unplayable. Not to mention, they came together in the middle of a dramatic collapse that read 4 for 4. The win puts Thunder in second place, but things have only gotten worse for Scorchers who now have only one win in five games and a serious batting disaster to sort out.

he's done it! Sams has just about held on. Slower ball, short of a length outside off. Turns away from him as he goes angled-bat on this and across the line. Can only get it along the floor to long-on's left

And now another chat between Sams and Watson

slower ball, cutting away from the wide marker. But Turner swipes at it and gets it to long-off off the toe-end. Sandhu is slow there and they pick up the second

Damian: "Why would Watson not bowl Sandhu for the last over when he hasn't even gone for a boundary???"
