full and wide outside off. Misses the shot and Heat win by 31 runs
What a comeback for Lynn and co, a win they so needed. Now they have two wins in five games, with a bunch of matches coming their way over the next few days. For Hurricanes, their innings never got going, proved by D'Arcy Short's strike-rate of just over 100. Six Hurricanes batsmen reached their twenties, but no one else could get going. That was their downfall eventually. As for the Heat batsmen, Lynn was excellent but so was Bryant who got his first BBL 09 fifty tonight. See you tomorrow for more BBL action, till then, it's goodbye!
Faulkner's on strike, but wait for it, he's got a runner. Are they even allowed? Who knows!
Kamran Ramzan: "I was mind boggled to why Clive is repeatedly in the team despite his terrible bowling stats, this is why!"
clips off stump as the full toss is missed by Meredith. Wayward delivery, not sure Prestwidge was attempting that
dropped by the keeper diving to his right. Full and wide, and the drive finds a thick outside edge
full outside off, and he lofts it over the infield. But Lalor gets under it from extra cover to complete the catch
back of a length, on off, and he looks to ramp but misses
full, and wide down the leg side
Vanessa Green: "Clive should be promoted up the order"
yorker length, on middle. Dug away to deep midwicket
M Shahab: "So if the batsmen had NOT run across why the strike was changed for the freehit ball?" -- They had run across. They had crossed each other - thus the strike to the other batsman. But they did not complete the run, and thus no single
full outside off, and the attempted drive takes the outside edge. Past the vacant slip region for another four
shotttt! That should give the crowd something to smile about. Short on middle. and hooks one over fine leg! Appeared to be played on purpose....
Nick: "@alex... I still think that the best catch off a no ball was Warne against New Zealand on 99 "
back of a length, on off stump. Paddles it over his head to short fine leg
full, on leg stump. Tries to punch straight and inside-edges it to mid-on
Kev: "Dear Comm: Best catch of this bbl has already been taken by Jordan. Period!"
yorker length, on leg stump. Dug back to the bowler
full, outside off. Attempts to muscle it oer cover but misses
Mert: "Weren't the Hurricanes robbed a run? That no ball was called and the batsmen changed strike, shouldn't they get a run then???" -- Good question, but it's a 'dead ball' as soon as Renshaw took the catch. By then, the players had NOT run across for the single. They were still midway - despite crossing ends - through the run
full, on leg stump. Pushed back to mid off
Alex: "That's the 2nd best No-ball catch I've ever seen, behind Faf Du Plessis of Steve Smith in an ODI a few years back."
Nick: "Does Benny Laughlin ever get an IPL gig?" -- Yes, represented Rajasthan Royals and Rising Pune Supergiant in the past, but perhaps, the teams have now figured him out
full, on leg, and flicked past the keeper for a boundary
Abhijato: "There's a golden rule when it comes to spinners - give them a long run before judging him. Zahir Khan has been above par with his numbers so far. There's no harm in letting him be in the side as long as he's delivering well enough. Not everyone has a Rashid in their side anyways, I'm afraid!"
yorker length, outside off, and sliced over point for a boundary
back of a length, on middle, and he swirls to pull behind square. Renshaw's inside the boundary line, so he's struggling to take the catch, but he sticks his right hand out to take a stunning catch! But my oh my, Prestwidge has overstepped, and therefore the best catch of the BBL will not be counted! Oh dear
full, outside off, and he skips down the ground to hammer a boundary. Past his bat to the keeper
Rovin: "Talking of overseas spinners, I love how Qais Ahmed plays with a smile on his face "
yorker length, on off. Bunted down to long on
full on leg, and flicked over to Zahir at fine leg
