another attempted wide yorker, this time carved back past mid-off and races to the rope to end the match. The Heat made it as adventurous as possible but finally get across the line by four wickets and 16 balls to spare.

That's all from us today. Join us again tomorrow from Adelaide where the Strikers will host Perth Scorchers. Until then, take care!
Man of the Match Lewis Gregory: "It was nice to get a win with the boys. I only got over quarantine a few days ago. It's nice to be able to contribute as much as I can. We made it slightly hard work but we got over the line and it's nice to build momentum. It's nice to play in front of a crowd again. It's been six or seven months since I've been able to do that. So it's a nice atmosphere."
9.30 pm First win for Brisbane Heat. They were smoking at the start of the chase racing to 0 for 73 before a wobble of 6 for 29 opened the door for the Hurricanes to possibly steal victory. But Bazley and Peirson hold their nerve to finish off the match.
wide yorker scuffed back to mid-off.
Still one run to win after 17 overs. The Heat never used their Power Surge, will become enforced if they somehow play out a maiden here.
bouncer over off stump, beaten for pace at 136 kph trying to pull.
yorker on the legs at 134 kph, misses a flick.
slower ball on off stump at 116 kph, lands on a length and Bazley thumps this high and deep over wide long-on, tremendous crowd catch 20 rows back. Scores level.

slower ball lands on a good length on middle, tucked into midwicket for one.
good length ball on the stumps, played with soft hands behind point.
full on the stumps, pushed into midwicket for one.

Meredith to bowl his final over now.
good length ball on fifth stump, punched gently in front of point.
good length ball on fifth stump, punched through the covers.
