22:13 Local Time, 11:13 GMT, 16:43 IST: A no-contest at the SCG. Chasing 188, Sydney Thunder lost a wicket in the second over and from there never ever got going. David Warner top scores with 16 and the next best is Joel Davies with 10, tells the story of the game. To their credit, the Sixers bowled tight lines and made the most of the spinning conditions. Steve O'Keefe the pick of the bowlers with 4/10, followed up by Sean Abbott who got the first wicket and then cleaned up the nail. This meek chase just puts into context how good Steve Smith's hundred was, and how challenging a surface this would have been! A thumping 125 run for the Sixers, this is really going to dent the Sydney Thunder net run rate.
