• D’Arcy Short runs out Henriques

    Hobart Hurricanes all-rounder D’Arcy Short pulled off an astonishing rolling run-out to dismiss Sydney Sixers’ captain Moises Henriques … this cracking piece of fielding gets the nod for today’s Play of the Day.

    Short was instrumental in the Hurricanes five-wicket win over the Sixers, with blistering performances with the bat and on the field.

    It all started off with a sensational run-out of the Sixers captain Henriques in the first innings as Short collected a low ball from wicketkeeper Matthew Wade just in front of the stumps. He threw it underarm at the stumps while off-balance, finishing off the move with a flourish as he rolled back on to his feet.

    He then added 64 off 42 balls – including five fours and three towering sixes – in the second innings to earn himself the Man of the Match award. His brilliance helped his team over the line and secured a fifth win in five matches to keep the men from Hobart at the top of the league table.

    Sydney Sixers 161-8 (DP Hughes 61, MC Henriques 31; J Botha 3-22, JP Faulkner 3-36, JC Archer 1-36)
    Hobart Hurricanes 162-5 (DJM Short 64, GJ Bailey 30, AJ Doolan 26; SA Abbott 2-29, TK Curran 1-22, BJ Dwarshuis 1-27, SNJ O’Keefe 1-40)
    Hurricanes won by 5 wickets with 1 ball in hand
