10.40 pm How crucial was that no ball which was not called on waist height to end the 13th over with Asif Ali going wild. Sixers may have won anyway, but we'll never know. Instead, they definitely win to come away with their first two points of the season. Hurricanes stay put on two points.

Sixers allrounder Hayden Kerr: "It was quite a nailbiter in the end but thanks to Silky and those safe hands, we got over the line. That was literally the game on the line there. And that's not the only catch of the night he's got for us. He got three wickets. It was nice to contribute with both. That's always the goal for me as an allrounder and it's nice to be scoring a few runs at the moment. In Big Bash cricket, ride the momentum wave and make the most of a few wins if you can get them back to back at home."

That's it for tonight's live coverage. Come back tomorrow for some more live BBL action. Until then, take care!

6
Naveen-ul-Haq to Paris, SIX runs

low full toss at knee height on fourth stump, slams this high and deep over long-on. It's a six to end the match, but Sixers hold on to win by six runs.

Naveen's slower balls win out here at the death. Match clinched with the final ball coming up just a formality.

1
Naveen-ul-Haq to Ellis, 1 run

slower length ball on fourth stump, charges and miscues this to deep square leg.

13.4
2
Naveen-ul-Haq to Ellis, 2 runs

slower bouncer on middle, pulled flat to deep square leg, horrible misfield turns one into two and arguably could have been three but they decide against it.

13.3
Naveen-ul-Haq to Ellis, no run

yorker on sixth stump, Ellis swings over the top.

13.2
W
Naveen-ul-Haq to Asif Ali, OUT

slower ball full on off, Asif tries to clear long-on with a big heave but Silk positions himself well at wide midwicket and takes a catch in front of his face while keeping his body just inside the rope. It was about three feet of difference between six and a wicket. Great composure from Silk.

Naveen-ul-Haq to Paris, 2 wide

wide yorker is sprayed down the leg side. They scamper another run to swap strike. So Asif Ali is back facing with 20 needed off six.

A no ball called on height would have made things mighty interesting. Still possible to sneak a win here with 22 off the final over needed.
