9.57pm A brilliant hundred by Callum Ferguson takes Scorchers down as Thunder nail the 182-run chase with four balls to spare. He was well-supported by debutant Matthew Gilkes, who scored a 38-ball 51. Shane Watson failed to get going but Ferguson's 53-ball 113*, including eight fours and as many sixes meant Thunder were always ahead of the required rate. Spare a thought for Shaun Marsh as well who scored an unbeaten 96 earlier in the day. That's all from us for tonight. See you soon!
