Shane Watson’s 6th T20 ODI didn’t bring his side victory, as one of the light towers went on the fritz in the Big Bash League clash between the Sydney Thunder and Brisbane Heat at the Adelaide Oval.
The Sydney Thunder’s challenging score of 186-4 was not enough to force a result, due to electrical malfunctions in Adelaide, which forced the Sydney Thunder and the Brisbane Heat to share the spoils.
How about the sound of this? You'd be kicking yourself if you didn't have Shane Watson in your fantasy side tonight! https://t.co/OMoTxJFJjh#BBL08 | @SkyscannerAus pic.twitter.com/B8RjoVKtPn

Shane Watson’s outstanding 100 off 62 balls (8×4, 6×6, S/R 161.29) lit up the first innings, with Ben Cutting taking 2-41. Chris Jordan and Gurinder Sandhu each picked up a wicket to leave the Heat struggling at 10-2 after three overs before a broken floodlight stopped play.
The Thunder are in third spot in the Big Bash League on nine points, while the Heat are down in sixth place on seven points.
Sydney Thunder 186-4 (SR Watson 100, AP Devcich 26; BCJ Cutting 2-41)
Brisbane Heat 10-2 (CJ Jordan 1-6, GS Sandhu 1-3)
It's all over. Floodlight failure at the Gabba as prevented a finish 😔 #BBL08 pic.twitter.com/B7lKkqJ3y1
