Ben Laughlin to Chris Green. Yorker, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Lehmann. Strikers comes out on top! Excellent bowling and fielding display there. The Thunder never really got going. They were always behind the run rate, and couldn't hit the volume of boundaries they needed. Peter Siddle on fire, definitely the pick of the bowlers, and some cracking catches to cap off an all round display. That means that both these teams have the same record, with two wins and two losses after four.The Big Bash entertainment continues into the new year, with the Heat taking on the Sixers, before the Melbourne derby tomorrow evening. You won't want to miss that.
