What drama! McCullum calls his boys into a huddle. Plenty of calculations. Plenty of things to ponder. It looks like Ben Cutting will bowl the over for Brisbane Heat. Henriques is readying to bat. The off side boundary is the bigger one. Wonder then if it makes sense to have a left-right combination. Yes! That's what they're doing. Munro and Henriques are walking out to open.

What an amazing finish! Cutting conceded just five from the last over, only four off the bat. A super over is coming.

Cutting to Dwarshuis, 2 runs, they get two! A super over! It was short ball, Dwarshuis tries to pull, gets a top edge and it flies to a vacant midwicket, it hung in the air for an age, but it fell safe and they run two as the man at midwicket couldn't get in off the rope to either catch it or prevent two.

Three to win, two for a super over

Well bowled. Now they need to stop two to prevent a super over. What a finish.

Cutting to Botha, OUT, Caught behind! Botha tried to reverse ramp a length ball over short third man, it bounces off the bicep, not the bat and flies to Peirson but he's given out! Botha is furious but he has to go! The gloves were close but he didn't connect.

J Botha c †Peirson b Cutting 16 (12b 3x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Long off goes back and third man up

Wildermuth to Abbott, OUT, Caught at long on! Short of a length slower ball, he sat back and waited, slaps a pull shot but hit it too flat, picked out long on and Labuschagne takes the catch!

Mitchell: "I find it funny how no one is mentioning all the players the Sixers have on international duty, yet the teams like the Heat and Stars seem to have issues with the fact that their players get picked for international duty, which should be considered a badge of pride to the teams, for having, or producing quality players, especially in the case of Lynn, who surely got a call up because of his early BBL form"

Spinnercoach : "It is an honour to play for Australia. Sixers would have Smith, Starc and Hazelwood if they weren't playing for Aus."

Swepson to Haddin, OUT, Run out! Chaos! This was outside off, Haddin just dabbed it to short third man and took off, he was sent by Botha as there was no run there, the throw was slick from Badree and Peirson didn't have to do too much to break the stumps and Haddin is miles short!

BJ Haddin run out (Badree/†Peirson) 7 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00
