Josh Lalor403218.00115030
17.4 to MW Short, finally they take a catch, do the Heat fielders! Fuller ball on the middle stump. He looks to go for the drive but hits it back to the bowler. It was coming back to Lalor at some pace as he pops the ball up with his right hand and takes the catch with his left. 158/2
Mark Steketee4048112.0075210
18.1 to KA Pollard, short ball outside the off stump. Pollard pulls it to deep square-leg where Swepson takes the catch. 163/3

Mitchell Swepson402716.75111200
9.4 to MS Harris, comes down the track and seeing the length is pulled back, he goes for the cut, but McCullum flies to his right and pulls off a superb catch. Join the ranks of Avengers, Bazman!. 75/1

Tom Cooper201507.5061100
Chris Tremain402937.25132200
4.6 to SD Heazlett, good length ball outside the off stump. So bad is his timing today that he looks to pull it away and gets a top edge to point. The fielder at point, Richardson, dives forward and takes the catch. 29/2
16.1 to AI Ross, short ball outside the off stump. He looks to cut it and gets on top of the bounce, but Holland dives to his left and pulls off a screamer. Fielding coach's dream, Melbourne Renegades have been today. 126/6
16.6 to MT Steketee, short ball on the off stump. He pulls it to deep midwicket where Webster pouches it easily. 134/7
Kane Richardson403548.75131400
2.4 to CA Lynn, fuller ball outside the off stump. He moves forward and lofts it to the left of Harris who does a fair impression of McCullum earlier in the day as he flies to his left and pulls off a superb catch. Considering the batsman dismissed, the catch is invaluable. 22/1
5.1 to BB McCullum, good length ball on the stump. McCullum drags it by moving away from the line and lofts it straight into the hands of the fielder at midwicket. 29/3
18.1 to JK Lalor, mistimes a lofted drive to cover where Bravo takes the catch. 151/8
18.3 to Yasir Shah, short ball on the off stump. He looks to pull it and gets top edge back to the keeper. 152/9
Jack Wildermuth201507.5032000
Jon Holland201809.0021100
Dwayne Bravo3.502536.5270010
11.1 to MT Renshaw, what a catch by Cooper! Short ball and he goes for the forehand (pull). He gets a top-edge and Cooper at mid-off is running sideways, not backwards, for a long time and just at the moment his teammates and the crowd believe the ball went a little too far from him he dives from running sideways and dives to his left. Though it seems like a fluid machine at work, describing it in words, the effort involved was exemplary and beats the catches by McCullum and Harris easily. 76/4
15.4 to BCJ Cutting, short on the leg stump line. He pulls it to deep square-leg where the catch is taken and that must be the season for Brisbane Heat. 124/5
19.5 to MJ Swepson, yorker on the leg stump. He makes room and looks to cut it away. Beaten and the bails are off. Melbourne Renegades win and Hobart Hurricanes are through to Semi-finals. 161/10
