End of Over No.20 148/9 This Over (4 runs)

10:27pm And that is the win for Sydney Thunder. A big enough win in T20s anyway, but they were worried about 20 minutes ago. They’ll think about why they couldn’t clean this innings up a long while ago, having Sixers five down in seven overs. Top knocks from Curran and Abbott, but Fawad Ahmed’s double wicket over to follow Rainbird, Cook, and Sams’ early striked had left them too much to do. Two wins in two for Thunder. Thanks for joining our coverage, and don’t forget to come back on Boxing Day!

19.6 0 Sams to Pope yorker in the corridor, looks to drive and is beaten on the inside edge no run

18.6 W Green to Curran taken by long-off! Crafty from Green. Full and fast at the start of the over and slow and wide when they needed to hit the sixes.
