D'Arcy Short is Man of the Match. The win means the Hurricanes are now second on the points table with seven points from two games. That's all from our side for this game. See you soon.

5.27pm The Hurricanes win by 11 runs but an unbroken 61-run stand for the tenth wicket - the second-highest tenth-wicket stand in all T20s - really gave them a scare even though at one point, the win seemed like a foregone conclusion. Worrall hit an unbeaten 62 off 37 balls and Briggs an 18-ball 35 not out but the Strikers top order really let them down. Despite a slow start, Short was the star with the bat for the winners, hitting 72 off 48 balls, while Faulkner picked up three with the ball.
