Steve Smith’s crunchy slog sweep lands on the roof at Blundstone Arena

Sydney Sixers made 180/7 in 20 overs after being sent in by Hobart Hurricanes at Blundstone Arena, with Steve Smith (66) and Ben Dwarshuis (30) playing key roles. The Sixers lost 5 wickets for 34 runs after Smith got out, but an improbable 30 from 14 balls from Ben Dwarshuis saw them post a strong total on the board.

Smith bludgeoned 66 from just 33 balls, including four fours and six sixes, but fell short of a third straight BBL ton, after being pinged lbw by a full toss.
