10.08pm Sixers overtake Thunder in the points table courtesy of today's win, and enter the top two with the playoffs approaching. Remember they were 8 for 1 after the powerplay while batting first, but ended up posting a pretty huge 197 in the end. Contributions from Hughes, Henriques and Phillipe with the bat, and then the veteran O'Keefe with the ball means Sixers have comfortably crossed the line against Thunder tonight. That's it from our side, as we head off. Goodnight and goodbye from me, Himanshu, on behalf of Vishal and Bnoy!
