Full commentary

Hurricanes win by 57 runs and might have got up to 5th place on the BBL table on net run-rate. That was a disaster for the Thunder. Not quite Brisbane Heat levels but they lost 8 for 28 after being 2 for 100 in the 13th over. Alex Hales was in control and D'Arcy Short changed the game with his maiden five-wicket haul in T20s. He bamboozled the Thunder middle order who played very carelessly.

D'Arcy Short is Player of the Match for his bowling performance. Thanks for your company from Hobart.
