Scorer: M Venkat Raghav | Commentator: Alex Malcolm

The Hurricanes win by six wickets with 15 balls to spare. Not a game for the time capsule. But the Hurricanes cruise to victory and move well clear at the top of the table at 4-0. They were magnificent with the ball. Decimated the Scorchers top order and the visitors never recovered. Then the chase was elementary after a controlled 50-run opening stand from Wade and Short. Doolan then finished the job with a comfortable 41 not out. The Scorchers have some work to do. Their top order batting has been abysmal and they now sit and 1-3 after four games. Riley Meredith is Player of the Match for his 3 for 15. That's it from Launceston. A clinical performance from the Hurricanes. Thanks for your company. Join us again tomorrow night for the New Year's Eve clash between Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Thunder in Adelaide. Until then it's goodbye.

Tye to Doolan, FOUR runs, 131kph, overpitched and he drives very nicely back past the stumps and it races away for the winning boundary!

Tye to Milenko, 1 run, back of a length, he tries to pull, gets a top edge that flies short of third man

Nirmal: "They have all good foreign bowler but not batsman. And AUS is no more power hitting power house. Disappointed to see this type of one sided with bowl beating bats in T-20 matches."
