Brisbane Heat win by seven wickets with loads of time to spare. The Strikers were never in the game after James Pattinson's early burst and he finished with a career-best five-for. The chase didn't start too well for the Heat, but AB de Villiers played a lovely hand and Matt Renshaw's good form continued.

"I was very nervous leading up," de Villiers says. He adds that he thought Rashid's first ball to him would be the googly and he picked it.

A nice boost to their net run-rate as well. They are up to fourth with the Strikers fifth but in a poor run. Plenty more cricket to come today and you can head over for our coverage of the first ODI between India and Australia in Mumbai. That's all from me tonight, thanks for joining us and catch you again soon.
