    That is all we have for you from this game. The Strikers-Hurricanes game starts in an hour from now. Please do switch to that tab to see whether the final 5 teams are confirmed for the playoffs.

    So the revised points table sees the Thunder jump to fourth, with 13 points. They would first be keenly looking at the Hobart-Adelaide match. If Adelaide win or lose by a narrow margin, the Thunder need not even bother about Monday. However, if the Hurricanes win by a big margin, some nail-chatting would be there when the Renegades play the Heat in the final league game.

    ALEX HALES HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. He is happy with the win. Says that it has been a really enjoyable BBL for him and he personally, could contribute. On Chris Morris finishing things off, Hales admits that he was out of touch but this innings here would give him a lot of confidence. On Thunder's chances for the playoffs, Hales says that if both Hobart and Renegades win they should be through. Stresses that they have done what they could and can only hope for the best now.

    Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method is usually stern on the side batting first. Here it was no different. On a sluggish pitch, Perth might have scraped to 150 and even defended it - but the rain just spiced up the pitch and on the new deck, 8 an over was not too big a deal. Jhye Richardson and Fawad Ahmed still, tried their best and got some choke going but the second over from Morne Morkel, which went for 18, allowed the Thunder to get a headstart.

    A bit too close for comfort but the Thunder are through. 96 was originally thought to be a tough total to chase in 12 overs on a slow deck but the quickfire 66-run opening stand in 45 balls set the tone for the chase. Hales' cameo ensured that the win was secured - that is what we all thought - but suddenly, Perth came back into the game as the Thunder found ways to collapse. Eventually, Chris Morris took them home.

    Matthew Kelly to Chris Morris

    FOUR! No Super Over! Full and outside off, a touch wide, Morris leans and lofts it over cover. One bounce and into the ropes! SYDNEY THUNDER WIN BY 7 WICKETS (DLS METHOD)!

    Matthew Kelly to Chris Morris

    SIX! SPANKED! Thank you very much. At this stage, length balls are like Christmas presents. And Santa Kelly delivers one. Outside off, Morris gets underneath it and swings it cleanly over long on! Just 3 needed from 3 now.

    Matthew Kelly to Callum Ferguson

    On the pads, the skipper looks to flick but misses. The ball goes off his pads towards the keeper and a leg bye is taken. In fact, no signal, so must be an inside edge. 9 needed from 4...

    2 11.1
    Matthew Kelly to Callum Ferguson

    A couple off the first ball. 10 needed from 5. Ferguson comes down the track and pulls this length ball through mid-wicket.

    Jhye Richardson to Callum Ferguson

    Just a single! Brilliant, brilliant over from Richardson. Take a bow young man, you are a complete superstar. Just two from it. Match now in the favor of the visitors. 12 needed in 6. This is a length ball outside off, Ferguson hits it towards cover for one.
