That's it for our coverage today. Come back tomorrow for more BBL action. Take care!

Stephen O'Keefe is the Player of the Match: "We first assessed it and thought it was flat but when we got out there it was a bit two-paced so I slowed it up a bit and got the rewards. They're so dangerous at the top. The thing we have going for us is we're taking wickets in the middle to slow things down. We don't have any set format with bat or ball. It's been a really big group effort. Flipper [Philippe] is a superstar. He plays with such freedom and plays shots you wouldn't dream about. There's no excuse to take our foot off the pedal and get into the finals in good shape."

10.30 pm Thunder dominated the first nine overs of play before Stephen O'Keefe's double-strike in the 10th over of the first innings flipped the script. Philippe then bullied the Thunder bowling unit in the chase to clinch a fairly simple win.

Sams to Philippe, OUT, Philippe misses out on a red inker! His eyes lit up with a juicy slower ball landing fuller on leg stump, tries to heave this over midwicket out of the ground but is through the shot too soon and misses, leg stump is knocked back. Philippe stays on his knees in frustration for a few moments before walking off.
