Right then, we're at the end point of the coverage. The Canes' would be chuffed to thrust back with a solid victory and keep themselves alive in the contest. This is Arijit Kundu signing off along with co-commentator Deepak Prakash and scorer/analyst Raju Khariya. 

Stay tuned, we got another BBL action to follow. Although the forecast isn't that bright in the Gabba but fingers crossed.🤞Happy New Year to all and may you have a bang like the Hurricanes did in the Bellerive Oval today.
Chris Jordan (Player of the Match): "Firstly, thank you. Obviously, it was a bit of a must-win game. We're kind of in a knockout phase, but to come here tonight and restrict them to 150, which I thought we would take at the beginning, and then knock it off the way we did, I'm very happy with the boys.

We try not to be in panic stations. If we're honest with ourselves, we're not quite hitting our mark as well as we'd like, but we do know the potential that the squad and the team have. So it's just about being nice and relaxed and then just trying to execute tonight. We're on the road for maybe three games or so, but I think that can be quite nice for a team. It can be a good period to really galvanize the team and try and get some hardaway wins." 
Player of the Match: Chris Jordan. 
1:42 PM IST and 7:12 PM Local Time: What better way than a six to finish the hunt. The Hobart Hurricanes bounce back and get one step ahead from the bottom of the table. They're still alive in the competition and this has been a commanding victory for the hosts.

In pursuit of the 151-run chase, the home side initiated watchfully when Matthew Wade defended the first three deliveries from Daniel Sams. Eventually they switched gears and brought quick runs on the board. Caleb Jewell (31) played some outrageous strokes before he and his partner, Matthew Wade got out in a space of three balls with the scoreboard reading 47-2 after 7.1 overs.

The moment the visitors could have seized control, Macalister Wright and Ben McDermott countered the opposition bowlers. They stuck in with a 85-run partnership for the third wicket with Wright playing his natural game and McDermott shifting gears with passage of play. They were at par in the chase halfway through the innings but the Power Surge between 12 and 14th over shifted the momentum towards the home side.

The wicketkeeper-batter cultivated four boundaries in the 13th over off Daniel Sams and in overall 22 runs were leaked inside the floating powerplay. Although Macalister departed in the first ball of the 17th over, Corey Anderson assisted McDermott to ease the chase with the latter reaching a half-century mark.

Earlier, the Sydney Thunder struggled to reach the 150-run mark after losing wickets in clusters for the major part of the innings. Alex Hales and Tom-Kohler Cadmore got dismissed early with the latter getting a diamond duck under his name due to a run out. Cameron Bancroft’s (21) struggle came to an end after the mandatory powerplay while Olly Davies (20) gave away his wicket playing a rash shot. 

The pacers and spinners of the Canes’ coupled well to break the spine and rescue the visitors to 96-7 after 14.2 overs. The Power surge was taken between 12 and 14th over but Chris Jordan and Nathan Ellis bowled well to concede just 12 runs and take two wickets. Chris Green stepped in and managed to eke out three quick boundaries. Subsequently, the all-rounder hung around with Gurinder Sandhu for a long time and ended up dragging the scorecard to the 150-run mark on the back of an unbeaten 17-ball 33. 
18.1 N McAndrew to C Anderson
6 SIX! Anderson finishes things off in style! Short of a length slower delivery angling into the southpaw. Anderson shimmies down the track and hammers the pull over the deep mid-wicket for a maximum to finish the game. Hobart Hurricanes win by 7 wickets with 11 balls to spare and they kickstart the new year on a high note. 
A match-deciding fifty from Ben McDermott. A hard-hit stroke to get to the milestone point.
