The Hurricanes claim all four points and climb to fourth on the BBL table. The Thunder remain in second but the table has tightened up significantly.
The Heat face the Scorchers in Melbourne. Hope you can join us then.
Ben McDermott is Player of the Match for his 96 from 56 balls: "The pitch was a bit slower in the day but it was beautiful to bat on under lights. It slid on perfectly. That's a huge win for us."
Crucial win for the Hurricanes. They get home by six wickets with two overs to spare thanks to a masterclass from Ben McDermott. That was one of the best innings of the tournament. He and Dawid Malan were superb to control that chase after a horror start.
John: "Terrible camerawork on that potential run out. Good job the game didn't hinge on that decision." Not having another angle didn't help. Hence he couldn't definitely say it wasn't grounded.

Has David run himself out? He sweeps off a bottom edge onto pad, it rolls to midwicket, Milne runs to his right, gathers and shies to the non-striker's and hits the stumps! It's sent upstairs. He was casual. Did he ground his bat? He was home but the third umpire had to take a good look. He's given not out
McDermott gets a standing ovation from the fans
top edge balloons to backward point! He didn't make the most of his luck previous ball. Looped leg break wide of off, he tried to loft over cover, got a thick top edge and it floated to Davies at backward point
