Sydney Sixers win by six wickets and are two from two early in the tournament. They always had this chase under control. Daniel Hughes played the perfect innings for the situation on what was a tricky surface where back-of-a-length seam was hard to get away. Probably not an ideal T20 surface, but at least we got a game tonight! Sixers are looking very good again, they have a lot depth and seem to have most bases covered. Will take a little longer to judge Hurricanes this season and how things come together. Would appear they have lost Riley Meredith for a while with another side injury. Their batting didn't adjust their sights well enough tonight. Daniel Hughes is named Player of the Match. On that note, I'll wrap things up for tonight. Will be back tomorrow for Sydney Thunder vs Brisbane Heat from Canberra. Until then, thanks for your company.

Ellis to Hughes, SIX runs

that just about does it! Dropped in short, Hughes picks it up with a mighty pull and sends it miles back over fine leg. He gave it a little fist bump after that

18.5
Ellis to Hughes, no run

full and wide, chases and misses the drive...was there a noise? No one seemed interested

18.4
2
Ellis to Hughes, 2 runs

a short ball, rolls his wrists on the pull, places it nicely between long leg and deep square. Useful brace

18.3
Ellis to Hughes, no run

flashes and misses outside off, back of a length and zips through

18.2

Ellis to Tom Curran, 1 run

short of a length and straight, a stylish pull to get off the pads

Ellis to Silk, OUT

short of a length, swipes across the line, it's a big top edge and Wade settles under it. Is there a twist?

That over should have sealed it for Sixers. Under a run-a-ball now

Jordan to Hughes, 2 runs

and now Hughes goes high into the leg side, a flick shot off the stumps, lands in front of deep square

17.5
1
Jordan to Silk, 1 run

low full toss this time, driven to midwicket on the edge of the ring

17.4
6
Jordan to Silk, SIX runs

just clears deep midwicket! Full and straight from Jordan, Silk swings it over the leg side. Kept the fielder interested but has the legs

17.3
Jordan to Silk, no run

drives, edges, given! Silk has called the review straightaway. Has he hit the ground? Very full outside off, he drives over it. And it's a flatline on Ultraedge

17.2
2
Jordan to Silk, 2 runs

full outside off, bunts it straight down the ground

Appears to be a pitch invader delaying play. Doubt that person will be getting back into a cricket ground anytime soon

17.1

Jordan to Silk, FOUR runs

back of a length, a cutter, Silk pulls it one handed over mid-on, that eases the pressure

Will be Jordan

Ellis to Hughes, 1 run

back of a length outside off, driven to deep cover to bring up a 45-ball fifty. Excellent bounce back from his Shield struggles

16.4
Ellis to Hughes, no run

keeps it full wide, Hughes plays at it and is beaten. Another dot

16.3
Ellis to Hughes, no run

very full and wide, left alone...gets away with the call

16.2

Ellis to Silk, 1 run

full outside leg, takes the pad and Wade dives across...looks like some bat involved as well

Ellis to Silk, 2 runs

gives himself a touch of room outside leg, swings a full delivery to deep midwicket

Power surge has been called. Ellis to bowl
