Tom Curran to Daniel Sams. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Silk. The rain gets heavier again, and off goes the players. Currently, the Thunder are ahead on DLS.Unfortunately the weather hasn't improved, and there will be no more cricket this evening. That means that the Thunder scrape through by 4 runs. An excellent bowling display has won them this game. The Sixers had a bad day at the office. They remain in second place on 13 points. The Thunder jump up to fourth on 11.The BBL continues tomorrow, with another double header on show.
