Ben Cutting to Aaron Finch. Half volley, outside off stump Deep in crease driving, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Laughlin. Melbourne Renegades spoil the party for the Heat, sending them crashing out of the tournament. Aaron Finch and Mohammad Nabi combined with a perfectly timed partnership, and were always cruising to the target in the chase. Brisbane were a few short with the bat, and couldn't quite pull it off with the ball.All that means that Sydney Thunder will now go through in fifth place, and Hobart Hurricanes in fourth. Those two teams will play each other in the Eliminator on Thursday evening, so join us again for that.

SIX! Ben Cutting to Aaron Finch. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep backward square leg for 6 runs. Right in the slot from Cutting, and Finch doesn't miss out. Carted over backward square for a maximum, and the Renegades just need one more.

FOUR! Ben Laughlin to Aaron Finch. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, past deep mid wicket for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Prestwidge. Mowed into the legside, and Prestwidge makes the mistake in the deep again. This time he lets it through his own legs, and that costs the Heat an extra three runs!

Marnus Labuschagne to Aaron Finch. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket for 1 run, dropped catch by Prestwidge. Oh dear. That could cost Brisbane the game. Finch mis-hits it down the throat of Prestwidge at deep mid wicket, and he shells the catch. The pressure gets to the young man.

SIX! Marnus Labuschagne to Aaron Finch. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Any mistake from the bowler and it is going the distance. Finch hangs back, sees the shortish length, and pumps it over long on for six.

FOUR! Ben Laughlin to Mohammad Nabi. Half volley, down leg side backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. That's wonderful batting from Nabi. Laughlin tries to go in at the toes, so he walks outside leg, and chips it over mid off for four.
