So that's all from this one. Sixers have won three out of three so far while it's the first defeat of the season for Strikers. We'll be back tomorrow with more action. Until then, it's goodbye.

22:33 Local Time, 11:33 GMT, 17:03 IST: Strikers fall short by just 1 run! Chasing 156, they seemed to be cruising along around the 10-over mark at 84/3. However, they got stuck after that, with no boundaries in the next four overs. Jamie Overton struggled big time and Matthew Short couldn't get going either. It was only in the final over, with 18 needed, that Overton finally found his range but he fell short by a solitary run. He's currently sitting alone in the dugout with hands on head with a look of disbelief. Credit to the two spinners from the Sixers - Steve O'Keefe and Todd Murphy - who were brilliant, as were Jackson Bird and Moises Henriques. They built a lot of pressure in the second half of the chase and chipped away at the wickets.

He looks to flat-bat it straight but gets it high on the bat and miscues it in the air. Vince runs in and grabs it on the move. Bazley c James Vince b Bird 8(4) [4s-1]

Bird to Bazley, THATS OUT!! Caught!!


Bird to Bazley, 2 runs, full outside off, Bazley crashes it wide of sweeper cover and they get back for two. The keeper collects the throw and breaks the stumps but Bazley is well home. The keeper then throws it to extra cover assuming the ball is dead. However, the two batters go through for another run as the fielder - to whom the ball was thrown - wasn't paying attention. Umpires get together and decide the ball was dead


Bird to J Overton, 1 run, good length outside off, slapped to sweeper cover
