Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

End of Over No.8 74/6 This Over (17 runs)

The Thunder win by 15 runs under DLS. That rain delay ruined what might have been a really good chase. 90 runs off eight overs was a big ask and the Thunder executed their skills with the ball really well. The target was set up by brilliant batting from Jason Sangha and Daniel Sams. They turned a possible total of 160 into 181. They got some help from some poor fielding from the Stars but the wet ball and wet outfield certainly played a part.

Daniel Sams has been named Player of the Match. Thanks for your company tonight from Canberra. There are two BBL matches tomorrow with the Sydney Sixers hosting the Perth Scorchers at the SCG and the Brisbane Heat hosting the Hobart Hurricanes on the Gold Coast. Until then, it’s goodbye.
