FOUR! Richard Gleeson to Alex Ross. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Ross smacks one down the ground for four which closes out the match, Sydney Thunder win the game by 6 wickets. Great batting display by them with Khawaja dominating early on, then after he got out Hales went big and got a very impressive half century. Ross and Gilkes got them home with two balls to spare. Sydney Thunder go top of the table, Melbourne Renegades get their title defending campaign off to the worst possible start.

OUT! Run Out. Richard Gleeson to Matthew Gilkes. Short, down leg side on the back foot hooking, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper, direct hit by Gleeson, by Harper. Wicket! More drama at the end! Gilkes run out off a short ball, they go for the single to the keeper but the keeper throws it to Gleeson and Gleeson gets the direct hit to send Gilkes packing. Looking at the replays that should've been a wide, the ball is bowled down the leg-side which went unnoticed by the umpires.
