10.30pm That is that. The Hurricanes consolidate their position at the top of the points table with their fifth successive win. Short set the base for the 162 chase with 64 off 42 balls. During the process, he became the second fastest to 1000 BBL runs. Short is the Player of the Match as well. Bailey and Milenko eventually got the Hurricanes past the line with impressive cameos. Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. Goodbye and good night. Be back for the double-header tomorrow. Cheers
