Mark Steketee4040310.00104210
0.2 to MP Stoinis, out 2nd ball. Steketee has got Stoinis with another fine delivery. The sharp indipper, cutting in and Stonis wants to cut, but is cramped by the inward movement, can only get a thin inside-edge that is well taken by Pierson diving to his left. Caught in the webbing but that will do. Clear edge and Stoinis walks.. 0/1
2.5 to GJ Maxwell, horrid shot attempted when his side is in a pickle and the fielder almost makes a mess of it. This is a pacy Gabba wicket, look at that bounce from Steketee gets it near the shoulder of Maxwell after banging it in, who goes for the hook, is clearly rattled by the pace and doesn't even know where the ball is - it has gone off the bottom of the bat straight up and cover-point running in manages to hang on as it nearly slipped out of his grasp. He is relieved and has a big smile on his face. Maxwell meanwhile looks at the toe of his bat as he walks back.. 16/3
18.1 to NM Coulter-Nile, holes out to mid-on. Slower ball yorker, well outside off, makes Coulter-Nile fetch it as he's trying to swat it legside, ball goes off the end of the bat and loops up. Long-on runs in and slides forward to take it. 181/7
Liam Guthrie4070217.5052761
1.5 to JA Burns, The Stars in trouble in the second over after losing Burns. Off-pace length delivery on the stumps which Burns looks to hoick to leg, but the thick inside-edge crashes into the stumps. Guthrie and the Heat are delighted. 9/2
14.6 to HWR Cartwright, some relief for Guthrie and his final ball nets a wicket. Full toss on the stumps, rocks back to pull, gets a top edge that balloons up and settles into deep midwicket's hands. End of a whirlwidn innings.. 167/4
Matthew Kuhnemann402416.0092000
15.2 to AD Russell, and he's not read that one, holding into the pitch and straightening, Russell was looking to clip it legside but is struck on the knee-roll and trapped in front.. 167/5
James Bazley4040210.0071320
19.1 to BJ Webster, straight down long-on's throat. Looks to clear his front leg and swing this over midwicket, comes off the toe-end of the bat and loops straight to the fielder. 195/8
19.6 to Qais Ahmad, and it ends with slash off the top edge that is caught by cover running back. Whirlwind end to a whirlwind innings.. 207/9
Mujeeb Ur Rahman403117.75102200
16.6 to JM Clarke, it's finally over. Clarke looking to slog one over cow corner, but is beaten for pace. Sneaks under his bat swing and shatters stumps. Clarke has to go for 85 off 44, a stunning, stunning innings.. 179/6

Brody Couch3034311.3354110
0.2 to M Bryant, much like the Stars, the Heat too lose a wicket off the 2nd ball. Full and Bryant in looking to loft totally miscues it and Dre Russ is under the high ball running back from cover, never going to drop that and Couch strikes. 2/1
0.6 to TLW Cooper, two in the over and the Heat are in trouble. Another full ball which Cooper likes, wants to go over the head of mid-off but lifts it straight up in the air, mid-off tracks back and takes it easily. Chasing a big total, the Heat did not want this start. 12/2
17.5 to SD Heazlett, excellent catch running forward by long-off and diving in front. Heazlett had a big swipe at one well outside off, couldn't fetch it properly, and the ball ends up swirling just beyond mid-off. Webster at long-off sprints in and then has to put in a dive, to hold on to it.. 162/8
Glenn Maxwell403007.5083100
Nathan Coulter-Nile3032110.6670400
10.3 to BM Duckett, holes out straight to Cartwright this time. Slog-swept this one, but didnt' connect cleanly enough and it's a simple catch for the fielder. Power Surge not quite working out the way Heat would have wanted, and Duckett goes after a fine innings.. 99/3
Adam Zampa403719.25116100
16.6 to MT Steketee, leg-stump knocked back. The batters never really looked like they were on top of Zampa and he's rewarded finally. Backing away to slog-sweep it, beaten in flight and the ball dips and turns into the stumps. 154/7
Qais Ahmad412636.50122100
12.4 to CA Lynn, he's flat-batted it straight to Dre Russ at long-off. Lynn did his stand and deliver routine, hit it extremely hard with a horizontal bat. Dre was at long-off and coolly moved to his right and let it settle in his palms as if he was taking a gentle practice hit.. 129/4
14.1 to JJ Bazley, castled. Nicely tossed up on the stumps, dips on him as he looks to slog-sweep, bat nowhere near ball as it crashes into the stumps.. 134/6
18.6 to MP Kuhnemann, great catch by Maxwell at long-on. Fuller outside off, connects well with the straight slog-sweep. Looks like the ball will clear Maxwell but he times his jump perfectly and lands inside the rope, has the poise and balance to not take a step over.. 172/9
