Ball By Ball Commentary

Over 20. 9 runs. Bowler: Chris Green. Sydney Sixers: 2-157(rr 7.85)
20.6 Chris Green to Moises Henriques. Off break half volley, down leg side backing away Slog, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Sandhu. What a finish to the over. It was tight all the way and nobody in the crowd knew which way this was going until the very last ball. Daniel Hughes brought his team home with an unbeaten 66 and 43 from the other opener Joe Denly got them off to a solid start. Sixers will be very happy after they finally get their first win in the tournament and they move off the bottom of the table. That loss though has dented Thunder's chances of making the final four so they will need to win their last couple of games and hope for the best.
20.5 Chris Green to Daniel Hughes. Off break half volley, outside off stump down the track pushing, to extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Watson. Two needed off the final ball.

Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot flick, in the air under control to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Vince, by McClenaghan, appeal made for Run Out. Tight second but Hughes is just home with the dive. That take the equation to nine required off the final over. Who's your money on?
