That's all from our side for tonight. See you soon.

10.10pm A big win for the Heat who are now tied with the Perth Scorchers with 12 points from 13 games. This win also boosted the Heat's NRR but it's still lower than the Scorchers'. Tonight AB de Villiers set up their win with a 37-ball 71 before their bowlers skittle the Stars out for 115. Swepson picked up three while Mujeeb and Pattinson finished with two each. De Villiers has been named the Player of the Match.
