A super effort from Moises Henriques, a clear choice for man of the match with 49* with the bat and 3/23 with the ball to help the Sixers to a crucial win here at Johannesburg. Thanks for your company, see you next time!
But a superb catch from Steve Smith right on the long on rope to dismiss Raina turned the match in favour of the Sixers and a steady stream of wickets enabled the Sixers to win quite comfortably in the end.
The Super Kings got off to a good start with wickets in hand and with Raina powering along in the middle over, they were more than a chance of winning.
