full toss flicked past short fine! Christian pulls it off! He charged and Bartlett reacted firing a full toss at the hip, he flicked it powerfully at a catchable height but past short fine. Christian just wins. Every single time
Thanks for joining us tonight. Cracking game. Melbourne Stars and Adelaide Strikers face off tomorrow. Join us then.
The Sixers go back to the top of the table claiming all four points. They face Sydney Thunder next in a mouth watering clash on Wednesday January 13. The Heat will be frustrated to let that slip. A win would have propelled them to third on the table. Instead they still stay 6th and face the Renegades on Thursday.
The Sixers steal their third last over victory of the season. They win by three wickets. Dan Christian got it done and was deservedly Player of the Match. He also went past 5000 T20 runs and 250 wickets tonight. Dan Hughes set it up for him but the Sixers lost 3 for 7. Dan Christian on Seven: "We certainly didn't want it to get that close. But they bowled really well. I just said to Jacko I'll take the strike and hopefully he misses and luckily he did. I still love it. I just love winning. Apart from one innings earlier in the season I haven't really delivered this season."
Scores level. One to win. Christian waits as Lynn personally positions every player. He has men in close to save the single
