caught at backward point! Jason Sangha takes the catch! Boyce is distraught! Thunder win by one run! Full and wide, it wasn't a great delivery, he just sliced a drive off a thick outside edge straight to Jason Sangha and he pouches it safely
Thunder finish third on the BBL table and will host the Knockout at the MCG on Sunday. They will play the winner of the Hurricanes Strikers Eliminator on Friday night. The Hurricanes face the Stars in the last game of the home and away season at the MCG as the last game of today's triple header. Thanks for company in this one. What a finish.
7.30pm The Renegades lose another one. Thunder get out of jail and take some winning momentum to the finals. Two nights in a row Renegades throw away the game from winning positions. Finch made 82 from 64 balls but couldn't close it out. Thunder fielded poorly all night until the last over where they were flawless. Gurinder Sandhu holds his nerve with 3 for 33.

Cameron Boyce on strike! He took 4 wickets in 4 balls and 5 for 21 with the ball. It's been his day. He needs 2 off 1. There's a Thunder team meeting with four men involved. Sandhu to Boyce
