That's it from the first game. It's raining in Brisbane so the second game is delayed. Hop tabs to get the latest. See you there!
Jordan, Player of the Match: It was a bit of a must-win game for us. We are in a knockout situation. To restrict them to 150, we were happy and then the boys knocked it off. We try not to hit panic stations. We have not hit our mark as well as we would have liked but we know the potential in our team. Any bowling line-up coming up against McDermott, he will always be feared. We are on the road for three games or so, and it can be a good period for the team to galvanize and get some hard away wins. We will take the win tonight and take every game as it comes.
19:12 Local Time, 08:12 GMT, 13:42 IST: Convincing win for the Caness! They needed this badly to get away from the bottom. This win will also boost their NRR a bit. They won a fine toss and asked the Thunder to bat. The Thunder made blunder after blunder to lose the top order. Ross and Sams were asked to do another recovery, but wasn't to be. Davies, Sams and Green stretched the total past 150. The target was never going to be enough and the Canes were off to a good start. McDermott held fort while the rest got starts and batted around him. They could have sealed this a few balls ago to further better their NRR.
