Sydney Sixers 7 for 149 (Henriques 41, Morris 2-36) tied with Sydney Thunder 8 for 149 (Ferguson 52, Pope 3-23)
Sixers won the Super Over by 1 run
A starring all-round performance from Tom Curran propelled the Sydney Sixers to a thrilling victory over crosstown rivals Sydney Thunder in the first Super Over decider this BBL season.
Moises Henriques scored 14 of the Sixers’ 16 runs in the Super Over, which proved just enough as the Thunder fell one run short in reply with Curran holding his nerve with the ball.
In the Sixers’ nerve-jangling chase of 150, Thunder held sway throughout before a late flurry from Curran (35 from 17 balls) almost single-handedly forced extra time of the Sydney Smash.
