    That is it from this game. The next game is on December 18 between Sydney Sixers and Perth Scorchers in Sydney at 1910 local (0810 GMT). Goodbye!

    Callum Ferguson is the MAN OF THE MATCH. He says that he is very pleased with his innings. Adds that he enjoyed his batting. Mentions the bowlers did well to defend the total. Ferguson also says that it has been a fantastic performance from the team. On being asked about how they are going about without Watto(Shane Watson), he says that it is a big void and they are coming to terms with it. He also says that his responsibility has increased without Watson and he definitely consults him on the improvements he needs to do.

    Coming to the Brisbane Heat, their batters came out all guns blazing but one could say, they played a little too attacking. They managed to score quickly but lost wickets at regular intervals. Three to be precise in the Powerplay. It was always going to be a tough task for them after that. Also, they kept losing wickets at the wrong time which made it even more tough. At once it did seem like Cutting would take them over the line but once he was dismissed, it was all over. For Thunder, the spinners were brilliant. All three of them were economical and picked wickets too.

    An all-round performance from Sydney Thunder here. Their batsmen came to the party as well as their bowlers were on song. Earlier in the day Thunder were superb with the bat, courtesy their skipper, Callum Ferguson, who played an unbeaten knock of 73 and stitched a vital 63-run stand with Alex Ross. They did lose their way once that stand was broken but Ferguson powered them to a competitive total.

    Daniel Sams to Ben Laughlin

    OUT! Sams nails the final nail in the coffin. Laughlin is the last one to depart and that marks the end of Heat's dodgy innings with the bat. Ben lofts this fuller one from Sams towards mid-wicket. The ball goes towards the longest part of the ground which means that the fielder there, Alex Ross has all the time in the world to go for it. He gets under the ball and takes the catch without any fuss. SYDNEY THUNDER WIN BY 29 RUNS!

    Daniel Sams to Ben Laughlin

    Sams goes for the slower ball bouncer but it goes horribly wrong. The ball goes over the ducking Laughlin. The umpire signals it as a wide.

    Daniel Sams to Zahir Khan

    In the air... DROPPED! Cook drops the easiest of the chance here. Sams goes short and Zahir Khan cuts it uppishly over point. The fielder from deep cover, Jonathan Cook running in there slips as he goes for the catch. The ball pops out of his hands and the batsmen take a run.
