Brisbane Heat win again. They win by five wickets with 10 balls remaining.
Three in a row for the Heat. Ben Cutting was the star. They lost 4 for 19 in the middle overs including the run out of Lynn. But Cutting took control with the help of Peirson and they get home. Hobart lost the game with the bat losing 4 for 47 in the first seven overs. Scott Boland bowled well. Ben Cutting is Player of the Match.
Ben Cutting: "We made it hard for ourselves with the bat again but that hand that Jimmy Peirson player was a serious knock on what was a pretty tricky wicket."
The Heat win three games in a week and vault to third on the BBL table. They play the Scorchers on Saturday night in Perth before AB de Villiers arrives for the last six games. Hobart have some work without D'Arcy Short for their next three games.
