    That is it from this game. Alex Hales has been named the Man of the Match for his brisk 55. BBL action is not done for the day as Perth Scorchers take on Brisbane Heat in the second game of the day which is underway now. Switch tabs and join the coverage of that game.

    Earlier in the day, Hurricanes after being put into bat scored 162 courtesy of some solid knocks from Bailey, Caleb Jewell and Ben McDermott. Sydney Thunder were very good with the ball as two wickets by Morris and Sams laid the platform for the batters to finish the game.

    The Hurricanes bowlers started off badly but once they got rid of the opening pair, they tried to pull things back but unfortunately it came too late. Boland, Rogers and Rose were the pick of the bowlers. Ellis had a tough day in the field as all the pressure built by his teammates was released in the 17th over as he went for 15 in that. Qais Ahmed also had a tough time as he went for 40 in his 4.

    The Thunder manage to get over the line. The have dragged themselves over the line but in the end they will be happy to get 2 points. They started the chase off very well and looked like they would coast to the finish line. Hales and Khawaja laid the platform with a 96-run opening stand, with the former taking the charge. The English opener was the destructor, scoring a 55 off 36. But once Hales departed, Thunder started to lose the plot. A simple chase started to get complicated and from 96/0 they found themselves reeling at 118/4. Alex Ross held their nerve towards the end and his unbeaten 32 ensured that the hosts get over the line.
