Nathan McAndrew | Player of the Match: I was stoked to get those two (Hurricanes openers), both are class players. The plan for me was simple: to bowl fast and straight, and see what happens. Usman did a good job today and all the bowlers were great today. 18:26 Local Time, 10:26 GMT, 15:56 IST: They've been known for their explosive batting this season but today, it was all about the Thunder bowling. They didn't have a threatening score to defend, and it seemed below-par with the way the Hurricanes openers started. But McAndrew changed it all with a double strike in his very first over. Although Malan and Handscomb repaired things a touch, their dismissals in succession derailed the chase completely. It was almost as if Hobart had hit a roadblock as the runs just stopped coming and wickets kept falling. It turned from an interesting chase to a game of academic interest within no time. Full credit to Thunder's bowlers though, they were top-notch as a unit and were well backed in the field as well. This win is an ominous sign for the other teams, because they did it without one of their key players in Sams. Thunder are now atop the points table. HBH: 128-8 after 20 overs 19.6 McAndrew to Boland, no run, Free Hit doesn't cost McAndrew! Senses Boland backing away and keeps this very fast, and full. A swing and a miss!

Ellis backed away this time and McAndrew nails the wide yorker perfectly on this occasion 19.3 McAndrew to Nathan Ellis, no run, fiery bumper, Ellis is in no position to pull this and is forced to bail out of the shot 19.2 McAndrew to Nathan Ellis, FOUR , a handy hit to reduce the margin of defeat. Picks the slower ball early and muscles the pull. Between long-on and deep mid-wicket. One bounce into the hoardings 19.1 McAndrew to Nathan Ellis, no run, comedy of errors! Ellis had no clue where the ball was, he had swung wildly, got it onto his body and nearly went onto hit the stumps 19.1 McAndrew to Nathan Ellis, wide , starts with a wide, tries to keep it away from Ellis and just keeps it beyond the tramline Nathan McAndrew [3.0-0-17-2] is back into the attack The man who started Thunder's comeback in the second innings will bowl the final over.
