Scorer: @Thilak_Rama | Commentator: @himanshu_a30

Strikers win, and they move on to 28 points while being No. 4 on the table with all their matches done, qualifying for the knockout stages in the process. But exactly which five teams make it to the next stage remains to be seen, and so keep hanging around as the action between Brisbane Heat and Perth Scorchers begins in Melbourne. But thanks for your company here, as Thilak, Srivathsa, and me, Himanshu, bid goodbye!

"English players seem to do quite well in Australia… But, of course, only when they aren't actually playing for England" --- Therein lies their secret to doing well in Australia, Ted.

Here's the man of the moment Cockbain: "Nice to get some off the middle. The wicket is pretty good. I was playing club cricket in Melbourne... [before I came here to play]. It has been a bit of a whirlwind to be honest. We have got a bit of momentum. I know players just from watching, not really playing. I am stil learning."

7.33pm A crushing batting display, and that is it. They restricted Sixers to 160, and Renshaw and Cockbain ensured the target was mopped up with ease. Both looked fearless from the outset, going for their shots knowing fully well what a win - not least the Bash Boost point - meant. Excellent job by Fawad and Siddle with the ball, and some brilliant batting seals the deal for Strikers.

Christian to Wells, FOUR, four to finish! Strikers win by eight wickets, with this one being a dominant performance. Full delivery outside off, and this time he places that right between point and cover-point while having a go at that

And the wait continues...

Christian to Wells, no run, fuller, and outside off. He steps across, but can only tap that back to the bowler

Christian to Wells, no run, full ball in the driving length outside off. He nudges at that, but finds the man at cover

Christian from over the wicket

Peter Llewellyn: "As a Scorchers fan, thanks to the Strikers - you've reduced my anxiety!"

END OF OVER:
17 | 10 Runs | AS: 161/2 (1 run required from 18 balls, RR: 9.47, RRR: 0.33)

Kerr to Cockbain, no run, slower ball on a short of a length outside off, and he finds cover-point with his cut. So Strikers will have to wait for the winning run...

John: "Still can't believe Sixers didn't bring Pope in for Bird or Dwarshuis. Saw what Fawad was doing and game was to early for due to change the pitch. Plus they have Christian and Henriques to bowl pace if needed"

Kerr to Cockbain, SIX, sent flying into the deep midwicket stands! What a hit - that was flat and furious. Short of a length ball on middle and off, and he rides the bounce to clobber that away for six

Kerr to Wells, 1 run, short delivery on middle, and he swivels while pulling to fine leg
