18.3
W
OUT! Caught. Daniel Sams to Nathan Ellis. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled to short third man, by Nair. That will be game, set and match. Sams does it again with his change of pace which has stuck in the surface and drawn the edge. Hobart have been dumped out of the tournament by Sydney Thunder after a terrific performance from the visitors with both bat and ball. Runs were on the board before the bowlers executed their plans to change the pace and bowl plenty of slower balls.Hobart advance to the knockout match against the Strikers on Saturday. Before then we have the small matter of the Sydney Sixers vs Melbourne Stars tomorrow, see you then.

18.4
4
FOUR! James Faulkner to Chris Morris. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs. Not the place to bowl with all the fielders inside the ring on the offside.
18.3
4
FOUR! James Faulkner to Chris Morris. Slower ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Drilled straight past the bowler and umpire. Close to hitting both of them but splits them and finds the rope.

FOUR! Qais Ahmad to Alex Ross. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Flat-batted all along the floor. Almost a tennis shot to generate top spin while hitting way in front of square.

FOUR! D'Arcy Short to Callum Ferguson. Left-Arm Leg Spin full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Great end to the over. Not brilliant from Short and Hobart have a lot of questions being asked of them.
13.5
4
FOUR! D'Arcy Short to Callum Ferguson. Quicker length ball, to leg on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Drags it down and Ferguson is so quick to get back in his crease. Slaps it into the legside and finds the fence again.

FOUR! Scott Boland to Usman Khawaja. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled past fine leg for 4 runs. Nothing going Hobart's way so far. Even a good bouncer from Boland which cramped Khawaja for room takes the edge and runs away.
4.2
4
FOUR! Scott Boland to Usman Khawaja. Slower length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Picked the slower ball very early. Gave himself room and drilled it over the top.

FOUR! Daniel Sams to Simon Milenko. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs.
