Match Centre

Scorer: Thilak R Gowda

As I said earlier Hurricanes had a mountain to climb and they have trekked easily. Hurricanes have pulled off a miracle victory here. Its a record run chase in Big Bash.

Ben Hilfenhaus whipped a ball of his toes to bring up an astonishing win for Hurricanes spearing 4 deliveries. Wells held his nerve and saw his team home. Early in the chase, BR Dunk played an gem of a knock and smothered the bowlers all around and he has been adjudged Man of the Match for his splendid display with the bat. That's it from here, do join us for the next match tomorrow between Sydney Sixers and Melbourne Stars at Sydney. This is Thilak Gowda singing off, take care,cheers.

kunal: "what a game that was so 209 was chased"

David: "Glad Hobart were not robbed by the incompetent decision to give Birt out."

George Goring: "Congrats to the Hurricanes. They blew the Heat off the park!! The Heat didn't help their cause by giving away 14 sundries compared to the 'canes 5. It's not only the value of the sundries that hurts you, it's the runs scored from the additional balls. Fair result."

Simon: "Terrible death bowling by the Heat gifted that game to Hobart."
