BALL BY BALL
Ov 20: 1 0 4 4 W W ( 9 Runs, 2 Wkts )
Quality bowling from Morris. He keeps his composure to nail his yorker. Both batsmen end up at the striker's end as it goes through to the keeper, so a simple throw back to Morris and a run out seals the victory for the Thunder. What a thrilling game that was. It looked done and dusted with three overs to go, but Rashid Khan gave the Strikers some hope with a quickfire 40. Unfortunately for the hosts, he couldn't quite get his team over the line, and the Thunder sneaked home by three runs. Wonderful entertainment to finish off 2019. The BBL is back in 2020, with the Heat coming up against the Scorchers tomorrow morning. Join us again for that.
19.6 - C Morris to W Agar
Yorker, outside off stump moves in front flick, missed to wicketkeeper, fielded by Gilkes, by Morris.
A suicidal second run to try and get back on strike, but Rashid doesn't make it. Morris fires it into toes, and the fielder in the deep flings in an accurate throw to the keeper. Four runs required off the last! Can Wes Agar be the hero?.
19.5 - C Morris to R Khan
Full toss, down leg side backing away flick, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Nair, by Gilkes.
Brilliant from Rashid Khan! Nearly another superb yorker, but it gets spanked away through point for a one bounce four. What a finish we have here.

Half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past deep point for 4 runs.

Ov 19: 1 1 1b 4 6 4 ( 17 Runs )
Ridiculous shot. Great whip of the wrists to send this rocketing away through mid wicket. Gets down low, and shovels it into the fence. 14 needed off the last.
18.6 - D Sams to R Khan

Game on? Rashid walks down to meet the ball on the full, then crashes it over mid wicket for half a dozen.
18.5 - D Sams to R Khan
