OUT! L.B.W. Sean Abbott to Haris Rauf. Yorker, middle stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Rauf out for a golden! The Sixers win this one comfortably in the end, 43 runs the difference, they were different class, the Stars are on a four match losing streak now, they will find it tough to get to the final the way their batting is at the moment. Sydney in the final the first time of asking, they have a nice long rest whilst the other teams fight for their spot in the final. Great performances all round, especially the bowlers.

OUT! Run Out. Sean Abbott to Daniel Worrall. Back of a length, outside off stump backing away cutting, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Hazlewood, by Philippe. Worrall out, he's been run out trying to push for two, there wasn't two there but they needed the runs. Sydney need one more wicket to wrap this one up.

FOUR! Ben Dwarshuis to Clint Hinchliffe. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Pulled away for four.

FOUR! Sean Abbott to Clint Hinchliffe. Slower ball back of a length, down leg side on the back foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Slapped down the ground for four, Hinchliffe going well compared to the other batters, maybe he should move up the order in the next match.
