Sydney Sixers made in two wins from two with a comfortable seven-wicket win over Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash.
The match was reduced to 19 overs-per-side due to early rain in Hobart but the Sixers cruised along, chasing down the home side's target of 154-8 with five balls to spare.
They got off to a flyer, consistently hovering around the 10 runs-an-over mark across the first six overs.
Nic Maddison – who hit an unbeaten 84 in the Sixers’ win over the Melbourne Renegades on Friday – was the only wicket to fall in that time for a shot-a-ball 29 from 12 deliveries.
His opening partner, Michael Lumb, continued the momentum with 44 off 30 balls.
When Cameron Boyce dismissed him in the 11th over, a further 57 runs were needed to win, but an unbeaten partnership between Moises Henriques (25no) and Jordan Silk (31no) saw them home.
Lumb’s success was in stark contrast to his Nottinghamshire and England counterpart, Alex Hales, who dropped him on 35 on the deep-fine-leg boundary, palming the ball over the boundary for six in the process.
It compounded a miserable match for Hales (1), who failed again with the bat in the Hurricanes’ innings, although he at least scored one more run than he managed on debut on Saturday.
Brett Lee picked up his wicket with the final ball of his first over – Hales skying his attempted slog to leg high in the air which was taken by wicketkeeper, Ryan Carters.
It was one of three scalps for the veteran Lee – finishing with figures of 3-34 from his four overs.
Hurricanes captain, George Bailey, gave his side something to defend with a T20 career-best score of 71 off 44 balls, using his crease well to manoeuvre the ball to the boundary throughout his innings.
But it proved not to be a big enough score and meant the Hurricanes suffered their first defeat of the season.
