Scorecard summary
Brisbane Heat144/8(20 overs)
Hobart Hurricanes145/2(17.2 overs)

10.39 pm Heat battle valiantly to steal the Bash Boost point. But the Hurricanes coast across the line against a very shorthanded Heat side. McDermott comes up seven short of what would have been his third ton of this BBL season but still strengthens his position atop the tournament run charts this campaign.

That's it for today's coverage. Come back tomorrow for more BBL action. Until then, take care!

Prestwidge to McDermott, OUT

the third BBL ton for McDermott in one season is not destined to happen. McDermott looked out of steam after the previous couple of shots. Short and wide on seventh stump, tries to pull this over midwicket but it was a tough shot to complete on the width. It swirls high over midwicket and the fielder McGiffin comes in 25 yards off the rope. Has plenty of time to settle under it and takes it falling backward at chest height.

Ben McDermott c McGiffin b Prestwidge 93 (61b 10x4 2x6) SR: 152.45

McDermott is sucking wind after that two. But he needs just 7 of the final 14 runs for the target to get to his century.
