Big Bash League, Melbourne Renegades v Brisbane Heat at Melbourne (Docklands), Dec 22, 2012
Melbourne Renegades won by 6 wickets (with 5 balls remaining)
22 December 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Sheridan to Hopes, OUT, gone this time, holed out! it looked like Hopes had read the change-down of pace this time, he waited for it and then smashes it over the fielder at mid-on, or that was his attempt anyway. Instead, the ball goes high in the air, allowing Murali to run to his right and take the catch...very confidently I must add!

JR Hopes c Muralitharan b Sheridan 5 (11m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Brisbane Heat 19/1   LA Pomersbach 14* (9b 1x4 1x6)   WD Sheridan 2-0-16-1

Sheridan to Burns, OUT, gone, run-out after a misunderstanding! this is good work from the Renegades, get Pomersbach out run-out at the striker's end...Burns drove it to mid-on and wanted the single, almost got to within hand-shaking distance of the non-striker which pushed Luke to go for it as well, the throw comes into the keeper's gloves and he whips the bails away! Gone!

LA Pomersbach run out 18 (17m 13b 1x4 1x6) SR: 138.46

Brisbane Heat 24/2   JA Burns 1* (2b)   WD Sheridan 2.1-0-16-1

O'Brien to Christian, OUT, gone, caught and bowled! he was trying to go down the track yet again but came out too early, the bowler was able to adjust his line to more into the batsman, quicker and flatter too and DC hits it back to the bowler, simple, simple catch for O'Brien!

DT Christian c & b O'Brien 2 (4m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Brisbane Heat 27/3   JA Burns 2* (5b)   AW O'Brien 0.2-0-0-1

Pattinson to Burns, OUT, caught off a top-edge! it was a shorter one and Burns wanted to pull it away, somehow does not get the timing right and the top-edge goes up in the air for the bowler to steady himself and take a very simple catch

JA Burns c & b Pattinson 13 (35m 20b 1x4 0x6) SR: 65.00

Brisbane Heat 78/4   NLTC Perera 38* (23b 3x4 2x6)   DJ Pattinson 1.4-0-10-1

Pattinson to Perera, OUT, gone, two in two! it was a full-toss outside the off and Perera does not stop trying to smack it away, hits it straight to the captain at point and they are five down now! it was a very low full-toss and Perera lost his bottom hand yet again

NLTC Perera c Finch b Pattinson 38 (26m 24b 3x4 2x6) SR: 158.33

Brisbane Heat 78/5   CA Lynn 0* (0b)   DJ Pattinson 1.5-0-10-2

Muralitharan to Lynn, OUT, gone, lbw to a full-toss! it was flighted up to the bat and he was trying to flick it away to the leg-side but misses it, there was a lot of loop there and it suddenly dropped on the batsman, causing him to miss the shot, hits boot on the foot and given out after a bit of a thought

CA Lynn lbw b Muralitharan 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Brisbane Heat 80/6   PJ Forrest 2* (2b)   M Muralitharan 2.2-0-16-1

Muralitharan to Forrest, OUT, swept away to the deep square-leg fielder! it was a fuller ball and he was always going for it, it went high up in the air and the fielder had enough to sit under it, wait for it before taking a good catch

PJ Forrest c Cooper b Muralitharan 9 (16m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

Brisbane Heat 104/7   BCJ Cutting 16* (14b 1x4)   M Muralitharan 3.3-0-19-2
