Brisbane Heat win by 10 wickets with 10 overs to spare! That was staggering viewing. Some of the best hitting you will ever see. Bryant and Cutting destroyed the Stars. They struck 13 sixes between them. Simply stunning. That keeps the Heat's season alive. The Stars now must win their last home game against the Sixers on Sunday to make the semi-finals. The Heat's net run-rate gets a huge boost. That makes things tough for Sydney Thunder. They now must win against Hobart Hurricanes tomorrow night and do it well enough to stay ahead of the Heat on net run-rate. Then it will all come down to the Stars Sixers in Sunday for the last semi-final spot. Amazing result. Here is the updated BBL table including this result. Ben Cutting is Player of the Match for his 81 from 30 balls. That's it from the Gabba. What a spectacle. Join us tomorrow for the double header, Adelaide host Perth with both teams playing for pride. Sydney Thunder must beat the Hurricanes at Manuka to stay alive. Thanks for your company tonight.
