Sydney Thunder finished with a score of 5/232, the highest-ever team total in BBL history, as they cruised to a 46 run win at the Adelaide Oval.

Alex Hales (110) scored his maiden century in BBL as smashed an incredible century off just 51 deliveries, hitting eight sixes and nine fours. Hales was helped by impressive contributions from Sam Billings, Captain Callum Ferguson and all-rounder Ben Cutting, as the Thunder roared their way back into the top three in the BBL.

Ferguson had a swashbuckling innings of 42 runs off 23 balls, with three boundaries and sixes. Billings and Cutting scored 33 runs off 21 and 14 deliveries respectively.
