That massive win has given the Heat a fighting chance of making the finals, moving in to fourth place on net run rate. They'll rely on the Strikers beating the Stars on Thursday night and maintaining a net run rate advantage.

The win was set up by a brilliant 75 from Dan Christian backed up by a brutal 17 ball innings of 37 from Chris Lynn. Once Gayle went for the Thunder, they never looked likely. Thanks for your company, good night.
