Commentator: Varun Shetty

That's it from us. Brisbane Heat have finally lost one, and now slot into second place on the table after four games. The Scorchers are above them. The Sixers have stayed true to their streak and managed yet another win after a loss. They've climbed to third place on the table, but have played more games - five - than anyone else so far.

Heat made a good comeback after beind pulled back in the middle overs, but this pitch remained true throughout the game and 186 wasn't to be enough. The Sixers would have liked to do it in less tense circumstances though. Daniel Hughes brought up his second fifty of the season, and was aided by a special cameo from Haddin, as he all but took them to victory with his 85.

It's been a good day's cricket. Join us tomorrow for Sydney Thunder v Melbourne Stars. Adios.

Cutting to Abbott, SIX runs, he stays around the wicket, digs it short on middle stump again. A pull shot it miscued, again. But it goes sailing over the keeper for six, and that's the game for Sixers

Cutting to Dwarshuis, 1 bye, bowls him a bouncer on off stump, he tries to heave that out of the stadium, doesn't connect, but they've scampered through for a bye

Slip in place

Cutting to Dwarshuis, no run, short and wide outside off, he stabs at it and misses! Some tension here, suddenly

Cutting to Hughes, OUT, he's dragged it on! Cutting angles it in on a length from around the wicket, Hughes goes for the pull but cramps himself with his step across and inside edges this one on to his stumps. Are we going to see some drama here? Surely not?

DP Hughes b Cutting 85 (55b 7x4 4x6) SR: 154.54

Cutting has to defend 3 off 6. He's had better days.

END OF OVER:
