9.10pm Second-straight loss for Brisbane Heat as Hobart Hurricanes get onto the points table. In hindsight, what Chris Lynn couldn't do... D'Arcy Short could. His anchoring innings helped Hobart post 159 in 19 overs after which their bowlers, led by Faulkner, chipped in with regular wickets. Max Bryant and Ben Cutting would've worried the Hurricanes, but eventually it was the visitors who collected the points. A solid game of cricket to headline the ground's debut BBL game. That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo, hop on over to the Bangladesh v West Indies T20I to follow that game. We'll see you tomorrow for more BBL.

Faulkner to Lalor, OUT, full just outside off stump, and he toe-ends a slog. In the air for ages, and long on takes the catch! Hobart Hurricanes win by 15 runs

1w
Faulkner to Lalor, 1 wide, goes for the wide yorker, and he's missed his line. Too wide, according to the umpire

Here's Mujeeb at No. 11. The man can swing the bat

18.2
W
Faulkner to Swepson, OUT, length ball outside off stump, and he goes onto the back foot to pull over long on. Off the bat's top half and that's going straight down long-on's throat

MJ Swepson c Doolan b Faulkner 2 (2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Faulkner to Swepson, 2 runs, length ball outside off, and he slaps a cut shot over point. Lands in no man's land as deep extra cover attacks the ball

Eighteen to tie. Nineteen to win.

Archer to Lalor, no run, dot ball to end the over. Short ball outside off, but Lalor followed the delivery. Eventually ducks under the ball, and the umpire has said that's a legal delivery

Archer to Lalor, FOUR runs, length ball just outside off stump, and Lalor backs away before slapping a cut shot over point! Almost goes for a six! That's what Heat need. Nineteen off seven now
17.4
W
Archer to Steketee, OUT, back of a length outside off, and Steketee backs away to try and cut this over point. Slices the shot, and that's soaring into third-man's hands! Is that the final blow? Archer on a hat-trick too.

MT Steketee c Rose b Archer 2 (3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Heat need 23 off nine deliveries.

17.3
W
Archer to Cutting, OUT, holes out! Almost a yorker on middle, and Cutting looks to clear long off. But he check-drives this shot, and the easiest of catches for the former Hurricanes captain Bailey

BCJ Cutting c Bailey b Archer 58 (32b 2x4 5x6) SR: 181.25

Archer to Steketee, 1 run, low full toss just outside off, and he slaps this towards point. Lands just short of Faulkner and the ball pops off his body to cover

Archer to Cutting, 1 run, full and straight, and Cutting drills a straight drive. Work for long on, but he slides to cut the boundary off

1
Meredith to Cutting, 1 run, full and wide outside off stump, and Cutting simply opens the bat's face to run this down to third man. He'll keep strike again
16.5
1
Meredith to Steketee, 1 run, back of a length on off, and he backs away to hammer a shot into the ground. The ball bounces away to cover
16.4
W
Meredith to Peirson, OUT, bowled 'im! A sedate celebration from Meredith. Full on middle and leg, and the ball hits Pierson's pads before ricocheting onto the stumps

JJ Peirson b Meredith 4 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

16.3
1
Meredith to Cutting, 1 run, Cutting backs away to make some room, and Meredith bowls wide outside off. Forces the batsman to reach at it, and he mistimes the shot to point
16.2

Meredith to Cutting, SIX runs, helicopter shot over long on! And that's his 100th T20 six. What a classy way to earn your maiden BBL fifty! Full on middle stump, and Cutting uses his bottom hand to deposit a maximum

1w
Meredith to Cutting, 1 wide, full outside off stump, and he backs away to cut. Cutting misses completely. Super fast from Meredith, and he isn't happy with the umpire's call

Five runs off one delivery in this over
