That's all we have from this pulsating encounter. We needed a Super Over to separate these two Sydney-based teams and found a winner in Sixers eventually. The action now shifts to the Docklands Stadium on Sunday where Melbourne Renegades will be hosting Adelaide Strikers. Do join us at 1910 local (0810 GMT) for all the updates and build-up. Cheers!

Once again for his all-round performance, Tom Curran has earned the Man of the Match award. He was brilliant with the ball and smoking hot with the bat. It won't be wrong to say that he has single-handedly ended Sydney Thunder's undefeated run this season.

Super Over started on a sorry note for the Sixers as they lost Tom Curran on the very first ball bowled by Chris Morris. However, Moises Henriques played a few cheeky shots to take the total to 16. In reply, Usman Khawaja didn't get going and wasted three balls by scoring just 4 runs. Towards the end, the equation required was 12 off 2 balls and Hales ignited hope in the Thunder camp by pummeling a six down the ground. But Tom Curran kept his cool on the final ball and conceded only four runs to snatch the victory and the top spot for the Sixers in the points table.

Sydney Sixers were set a pretty ordinary target but they didn't get going in their run chase. The experiment to open with Hayden Kerr flopped while Josh Philippe also had an ordinary outing. Daniel Hughes' knock along with Moises Henriques' did revive the Sixers cause but once they got dismissed, the visiting team tried to regain control. However, Tom Curran emerged to the scene and batted like a train on fire. His whirlwind 17-ball 35 brought the Sixers on the cusp of a win but a brilliant 18th and 19th over bowled by Daniel Sams and Chris Morris respectively made it a tough equation in the final over. With 16 required in 6 balls, Chris Tremain was torn apart by Tom Curran. Although the two runs needed on the final ball was not fulfilled and we headed to the first Super Over of this season.

Phew! What a thriller! Never looked like we will get this close but that happened courtesy some very tidy bowling at the death by the Thunder. However, they will be disappointed after having the upper hand on most occasions during the run chase. This should have never gone this far.

Ball 6: Curran to Hales, FOUR! It's not enough and SYDNEY SIXERS WIN THE SUPER OVER BY 1 RUN! Curran delivers it very full and wide outside off, not allowing the batsman chance to get inside the line of the delivery. Hales reaches out for it and squeezes it out from the outer half of his bat. It beats short third man for a boundary. Tom smiles and shakes hands with Hales. A terrific game of T20 cricket comes to an end!

Ball 5: Curran to Hales, SIX! Dismissed! This match is still alive and kicking. Curran serves it full and around off for his countryman, Hales lines up the delivery and launches it over long off. 6 needed off the last ball. Wow, what a match!

Ball 4: Curran to Khawaja, 1 run. A fuller length ball outside off has been driven to sweeper cover for one. 12 needed off two balls and Hales is back on strike. Can he?

Ball 3: Curran to Hales, 1 run! Terrific delivery. A very low full toss around leg, not offering much to the batsman, Hales flicks it through square leg and runs the first run hard. He turns for the second but slips a bit and Usman returns.

Ball 2: Curran to Khawaja, 1 run. Fuller and wider outside off, Khawaja walks across the stumps and paddle scoops it just over short fine leg. It drops safely and they take a run. 14 needed off 4 balls.
