Renegades remain stuck to the bottom of the table while the Heat pick up maximum points today to create a deadlock with the Strikers and Scorches on 20 points as the trio continue chasing both Sydney franchises leading the pack this tournament. That's all from us today. Come back tomorrow for more BBL action. Take care!

Joe Burns is named Man of the Match: "I just try and be clear with what my options are and just commit to them. Fortunately I got a few boundaries away. It's tough without any fans in the ground. I think it was low and slow before the sun went down and think it got better once the dew came in. We've made a commitment to just trying to be a little bit smarter with how we play. If you take the game as deep as possible, you have a chance of winning some more games. We're on to Melbourne now with slower wickets so this was a good appetizer. Morne scares the bejeezus out of me in the nets so it's good to see him bow at someone else for once."

10:24 pm For a brief moment it looked like the Renegades might steal a win and just as quickly Joe Burns snuffed that out.

back of a length on fourth stump, cramped for room trying to cut and gets a thick edge that flies past the keeper, deep third man can't cut this off and that's the match. Heat win by five wickets with eight balls to spare.

Peter Hatzoglou 4-0-28-2
Imad Wasim 4-0-28-1

Poor end to the over by Hatzoglou. Had the Heat under pressure with the wicket and then released it badly with two boundaries in three balls to end the frame. Just 22 off 18 needed now.

Hatzoglou to Burns, FOUR runs

short on the stumps, pulls this flat through wide mid-on, deep midwicket has no chance to cut it off.

Hatzoglou to Burns, FOUR runs

short and wide, carves a cut behind point and splits the gap with short third man. That area has been peppered all innings long.

16.3
2
Hatzoglou to Burns, 2 runs

short on the stumps, pulls this to cow corner, very long two is settled for rather than taking on the relay for a third.

Hatzoglou to Peirson, 1 run

good length ball on off, flicked behind square.

Hatzoglou to Bazley, OUT

Bazley charges second ball and gets caught up in the moment. Didn't really need to do this and Hatzoglou defeats him by dragging it very short on middle. Bazley tries to swat this and misses, keeper collects almost at neck height it was so short before he whips off the bails.

Hatzoglou to Bazley, 1 wide

quicker and flatter down leg. Can't afford any wides at this stage.

Power Surge called for with 34 off 24 needed to win. Hatzoglou called on by Finch to bowl his last over.
