Show comments

HURRICANES WIN! They've beaten the Thunder by 32 runs. They never looked in control chasing the Hurricanes' 4-177. Ricky Ponting is the man of the match for his 63 runs and one wicket. The Thunder will remain glued to the bottom of the ladder. Join us for all the action from the Sixers v Strikers on our other online blog.

WICKET! He's bowled him. Ben Laughlin removes Zampa. It's party time in Hobart. Thunder are now 9-143 after 19.3 overs.

End of the 19th over. Thunder 8-143. They need 35 runs off the last over to win. Yeah, right.

In case you're interested. The Sixers have won the toss and will bat first in Adelaide. Follow all the action from that game on our live blog.

Hang on! He's been called back. Wrong call from the square leg umpire. Replays show Adam Zampa was safe. Ponting has been robbed!

WICKET! Ponting has two wickets. Great stumping by Tim Paine. What an afternoon for the former Australian captain. Thunder 9-134.

WICKET! Ponting gets his man! Good come back. That should seal man of the match honours for Ponting. George Bailey takes a catch in the deep. The home town hero gets his first wicket for the Hurricanes. Coyte dismissed for 10 off five balls.

SIX! That's out of the ground. Scott Coyte belts Ricky Ponting on to the road. A 94m hit from Coyte. 7-134 off 17.3 overs.

What do we have here! Ricky Ponting is into the attack. Thunder 7-124 after 17 overs. 54 runs required off 18 balls.

What an over from Doherty. Finishes with figures of 3-32. He took 3-3 off his final over.

HAT-TRICK! Xavier Doherty has done it! That's a hat-trick. Cam Borgas trapped in front. The crowd is in raptures. Replays suggest that is missing off stump by quite a bit, but it still counts.

WICKET! Doherty on a hat-trick. Ryan Carters stumped by Tim Paine. Thunder 6-122 still needing 56 off 21 balls. Game over.

Sean Abbott out there now. Thunder still require 56 off 22 balls.

WICKET! Simon Keen pops it up straight to cover. Doherty gets ther breakthrough. Thunder 5-122 off 16.2 overs. Keen is dismissed for 24 off 12 balls.

Simon Keen (24 off 11) doing a good job for the Thunder. They scored 2, 4, 0, 4, 1, 1 from that over for a total of 12. Thunder are now 4-121 off 16 overs. They need 57 runs off 24 balls.

10 runs an over isn't good enough at this stage of the game. Thunder now require 69 off 30 balls. 4-109 off 16 overs.

Thunder require 79 from 36 balls. The game will be won and lost in this Xavier Doherty over.

I agree with the FoxSports boys. Sean Abbott should've walked out on to the middle, not Simon Keen. That's what happens when your captain is out there. Almost 13 runs an over required for victory now.

WICKET! What a catch! Rogers is caught in the deep by Travis Birt off the bowling of Scott Styris for 24 off 28 balls. It might well be a blessing for the Thunder, who welcome the big-hitting Simon Keen. Thunder 4-91 off 13.1 overs.

NOT OUT! Chris Rogers' bat looked to be in the air but benefit of the doubt goes to the batsman. Great throw from Scott Styris on the boundary and an equally impressive pick up on the volley from Tim Paine. Rogers survives. Thunder 3-91 off 13 overs.
