lofted down the ground! Brilliantly timed chase from Wildermuth and Gregory. In the slot, he swung straight through the line to finish it
The Heat climb up to 6th on the table and Sixers slide to 3rd. The Sixers back up again tomorrow against the Strikers on the Gold Coast as part of another double header. Hope you can join us then.
Mark Steketee is Player of the Match for his career-best 4 for 33. Steketee: "I thought they started well. Jack Wildermuth bowled a great spell to pull it back. There's certainly been some hard truths. We still believe we're a very good cricket side. We'll have to back it up in a couple of days."
Heat win their second match of the season. They win by four wickets with 7 balls to spare. Outstanding effort from Gregory and Wildermuth. The Heat sacrificed the Bash Boost point to ensure they didn't lose clumps of wickets early in the chase and then lost them in the Power Surge but Gregory and Wildermuth did it with ease, hitting the gaps and minimising risk. The Sixers bowling and fielding was wayward at times which helped their cause.
One to win
slower ball on middle, he works to midwicket, Wildermuth wants two but Gregory wisely sends him back
wide half volley, he reaches out and slices it up and over cover for a couple
lofted to the sightscreen! Half volley in the slot, he didn't middle it but got it well enough to clear the rope and the fence
glanced off the past short fine and it runs away! Too straight from Dwarshuis, he just worked it with ease with the angle and it was timed perfectly
Dwarshuis around the wicket
bouncer, over leg, it is very high but not called a wide
full on leg, he clips it with ease to wide long on for two more

Sharat Verma: "@Vinod, my gut feeling, Brisbane Heats is going to win it!!"
low full toss, he mistimes a drive to long on
slower ball outside leg, he tucks it behind square, placing it to the gap and calls two immediately. Smart batting
Christian again. Around the wicket
sliced high and safe over cover, he didn't time it but it was good enough to pick up a couple
length slower ball wide of off, he mistimes a pull to deep midwicket, Vince runs straight over the top of it and they get two!
low full toss outside off, he drills it to long off along the ground
Vinod Rajpal: "Gut feeling Alex......this will match will be a TIE !!"
even wider this time! The radar is not working right now
full and too wide again. He's trying for wide yorkers but just can't nail the line
wide low full toss, he reaches out and drives to long off
full and too wide of off!
Christian fumbles on the rope at long on! A pull shot miscued to wide long on and Christian got there but made a meal of it as it went through his legs
low full toss outside off, he clips this firmly to long on
