That's all we have from this rain-affected match. Sydney Thunder have moved to the top 4 on the table, equal on points with Adelaide Strikers but down on the NRR. Sunday will bring our way yet another double-header. First up, Hobart Hurricanes will be hosting Adelaide Strikers at 1445 local (0345 GMT) and then later in the evening at 1810 local (0810 GMT), Brisbane Heat will be crossing swords against Melbourne Renegades. Do join us for all the action. Cheers!

CHRIS MORRIS IS CHOSEN FOR THE MAN OF THE MATCH AWARD! Says that he is quite happy with the win. Adds that he is pleased with the Thunder moving in the top four as it is the business end of the tournament. On the Hughes' run out, Morris states that he took a chance and that paid off. Finishes by saying that it was a very tricky wicket to bat on and is delighted with the way they played.

ALL OVER! The two captains are seen shaking hands. Not possible to carry on as the rain refused to make way. SYDNEY THUNDER WIN BY 4 RUNS (DLS method) to take two vital points and jump up on the points table. It was a clinical bowling show by them aided by some reckless batting from the Sixers that set up this win. The pitch was a bit sticky but the touring team failed to combat that and their shot selections were quite questionable. Sydney Thunder did lose their openers rather cheaply but since there wasn't much scoreboard pressure, they managed to stay within the limits of the Duckworth–Lewis–Stern method.

Update 2208 local - Here comes the official word from the match officials. One of the umpires, Tony Wilds informs that 2223 local is the cut-off time and if they don't start by then, it's game over. Praises the groundsmen for putting in the hard work and hopes that the crowd will be treated with some more cricket.

Moises Henriques is caught for a quick chat. Starts by saying that it was a sticky wicket early on but at the same time they have to learn to combat that. Tells that the pitch was under covers and it was holding up a bit, especially in the early half. Shares that once the ball got older, it got easier to bat on and the pitch also dried up. On the plan to pick two spinners in his XI, Moises replies that they are two good spinners who are capable of manipulating any batting order. When asked whether he would have liked to see the pitch after it was uncovered, Moises says that both the skippers saw similar conditions before the toss, so it's fair. Adds that today they are at the wrong end and on another night, it could have been the Thunder. Smiles and says that his fatherhood is going good and it's overwhelming, a proud moment for anyone. Informs that it isn't raining heavily but the drizzle is quite persistent.

Update 2147 local - PLAYERS ARE GOING OFF! It continues to drizzle and after waiting for a while, the umpires have decided that enough is enough. They have called for the covers. The Thunder are 4 runs ahead on the DLS count.
