OUT! Run Out. Chris Morris to Wes Agar. Yorker, outside off stump moves in front flick, missed to wicketkeeper, fielded by Gilkes, by Morris. 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.

OUT! Run Out. Chris Morris to Rashid Khan. Full toss, down leg side backing away flick, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Nair, by Gilkes. 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?

FOUR! Chris Morris to Rashid Khan. Half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past deep point for 4 runs. 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.

FOUR! Chris Morris to Rashid Khan. Yorker, off stump moves in front flick, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. How has he got bat on that? Rashid is falling over as he plays this. Terrific delivery from Morris in at the base of the stumps, but the Afghan man clips it past short fine leg for four.

FOUR! Daniel Sams to Rashid Khan. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 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.

APPEAL! Chris Morris to Rashid Khan. Half volley, off stump no foot movement flick, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Morris, appeal made for L.B.W. That looked extremely close. Rashid is struck on the back leg in front of leg stump, and HawkEye says it was smashing into the stumps. Wrong call by the umpire.

OUT! Caught. Arjun Nair to Cameron White. Carrom length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep point, by Sams. Another one for Nair. White wanted to go up and over extra cover, but slices it down the throat of the sweeper on the boundary edge. It goes straight up, and is comfortably taken. A miracle needed for the Strikers now.

The one that goes the other way from Nair, and it isn't picked by Valente. Tries to go legside, but gets a big leading edge. The ball pops up for an easy grab for Ferguson.
