A commander’s thump by Sydney Sixers’ Moises Henriques and Tom Curran’s 3 for 27 aided the side make it two of every two in the 2021-22 Big Lash League.
Sixers lost their top half economically and were in some hot water at 39 for 5 on the primary chunk of the 10th over before Henriques’ 73 assisted them with making some progress to wrap up with a good all out of 144/9. The captain was engaged with a 62-run represent the 6th wicket with Tom Curran, who contributed with a significant 27. Henriques was the attacker in the association, hitting about six limits and both the sixes of Sixers’ innings. Thomas Rogers, who set off the breakdown front and center, was the pick of the bowlers for Hurricanes with a match take of 3 for 28.
Storms didn’t have the best of starts to their pursuit either, with opener D’Arcy short burning-through 36 balls for his 21. A breakdown resulted after their languid beginning in the powerplay and Hurricanes too ended up in a tough situation at 77 for 5 in the fourteenth over. Peter Handscomb, with his 31-ball 47 acted the hero to bring the condition down to 23 needed off the last two overs. Notwithstanding, Sixers’ English imports Chris Jordan and Curran held their nerve to pull off a far-fetched win. While Jordan yielded just three, Curran got two late wickets too to get Hurricanes short by 14 runs.
