Scorer: M Venkat Raghav | Commentator: Alex Malcolm

Thunder win by 7 wickets under DLS with 2 balls to spare. Chris Morris is the hero for the Thunder and their finals hopes stay alive. They jump up to 4th on the table and the Scorchers drop to 5th. Now it's over to the Hurricanes and the Heat to see what they can do. Alex Hales is Player of the Match for his 47 off 27 balls in the chase. Hales: "It was a lot closer than we would have liked. It was important to get off to a good start and fortunately we just scraped over the line."

It all hangs on the Hobart Hurricanes and Brisbane Heat. What a finish we have coming up over the next 24 hours. The Hurricanes face the Strikers tonight and then the Heat face the Renegades tomorrow. Those results will dictate who plays finals. Thanks for your company from the Sydney Showgrounds.

Duke: "Morris!!"

Alex: "Matt Kelly?!? SERIOUSLY?! Why sign Morkel if you're going to use Matt Kelly in this situation. "

WAQAR: "Thunder deserved this DLS luck after bad luck in Strikers game. Game getting called off after 4.2 overs of Thunder innings."

Kelly to Morris, FOUR runs, driven over cover and the Thunder win! Another half volley outside off, Morris was waiting and he lofted a cover drive over the man in the circle and away to the rope!

Kelly to Morris, SIX runs, thumped over long on! 127kph in the slot! Nowhere near the yorker length Kelly wanted, he hung back set himself and crunched it flat into the stands with a glorious swing of the bat

Remios: "What an over from Richardson, I can't believe it "

11.2

Kelly to Ferguson, 1 run, 128kph, attempted yorker, he charged and gets an inside edge onto pad for a single! The yorker would have been a half volley if he hung back
11.1

Kelly to Ferguson, 2 runs, he charges, into the wicket slower ball, he pulls on the move wide of deep long on and they pick up two

Matt Kelly is bowling the last. The Thunder need 12. Seasons are on the line. Third man and fine leg up. Yorkers and slower balls coming you would think.

END OF OVER:
11 | 2 Runs 1 Wkt | ST: 84/3 (12 runs required from 6 balls, RR: 7.63, RRR: 12.00)

Richardson to Morris, 1 run, full outside off, hammers a drive straight of mid off and Morkel makes an amazing diving save on the circle! Saved three for sure
