Chennai Super Kings
Kolkata Knight Riders
The Heat go to the top of the ladder with that win. No McCullum, no Lynn, no Badree, no worries. They made early strikes with the ball to restrict the Stars to 138. The chase had some early wobbles but a great partnership between Ross and Burns saw them home. They never panicked despite some slow spots in the middle overs. That is a superb win away from home.
Man of the match is Mitch Swepson for his performance with the ball.
"It's been a whirlwind (period). It's been a massive couple of days. It's been awesome.
"It was a tough wicket to bat on. I thought the boys did well to run that down.
"It was about changing your pace and not being predictable bowling on that wicket."
The Heat are likely to get McCullum and Badree back for Friday's clash with the Renegades at the Gabba. They can secure a home final with a win. The Stars host the Sixers in a cut throat clash on Saturday night. Seven teams can make the finals.
The final round starts tomorrow. The Thunder host the Strikers tomorrow night. Hope you can join us then.
Huge over. Great striking from Joe Burns. He picked his target.
