Sixers and Hurricanes bag one point each from this game then. On 17th of January, Adelaide Strikers will be hosting Brisbane Heat where we hope we can get some exciting cricket in a game which features Chris Lynn and Rashid Khan. That game starts at 1540 local (0440 GMT). We will love your company for that game. Till then, cheers and good bye.

Just the 6.4 overs of action we could get in this game. By the look at the scorecard, one would feel that it was Hurricanes who were at the top but Hughes and Henriques were starting to build a stand. But eventually rain arrived and then did not allow the game to resume.

Ok, then! The inevitable has happened and the match has been CALLED OFF. There was forecast for the rain. It arrived, did not stop and the game was eventually abandoned.

UPDATE - 2120 local (1020 GMT) - So, to have a 5-over dash, the play must start at 2149 local or else both the sides will end up sharing a point. To be honest, the latter looks more likely at the moment.

UPDATE - 2105 local (1005 GMT) - I am afraid we do not have anything positive to update and the resumption now looks highly unlikely.

UPDATE 2010 local (0910 GMT) - Nothing positive to update as the rain continues to pour down. It does not look good at the moment but let's hope it stops and we get some action.

Josh Philippe is caught for a quick chat on the sidelines. He starts by saying that it is really disappointing that the rain arrived to interrupt the game. However, feels that the rain is good for Australia as it will help with respect to the bushfires going around. On the historic knock of Stoinis the other day, Philippe feels that it was an unbelievable knock from the Melbourne Stars player. He ends by hoping that the rain stops and they can get a game.

Update 1940 Local (0840 GMT) - And the players have started to come off the field. The groundsmen have rushed onto the pitch with the rain pouring down and are putting the covers on the pitch. Let's hope that this is not a long stoppage although it is very cloudy and the signs are not promising.

1 6.4
Nathan Ellis to Daniel Hughes

Length ball around off, Hughes works it towards mid-wicket.

lb 1 6.3
Nathan Ellis to Moises Henriques

Direct hit and Henriques was gone for all money. A good length ball angled into the right-hander. Henriques looks to flick but misses. The ball hits his pad and rolls towards point. Henriques thinks of stealing a leg bye and takes off. However, Hughes sends him back. However, he gives up as he knows he won't be able to make it even with a dive. The point fielder fires the throw at the striker's end but misses. Now, the ball goes towards mid-wicket and they eventually get the run. This can be a costly miss for the Hurricanes.
