That is the end of the match. Heat started their new year with a win. They won by 15 runs. Brown and McSweeney were the stars for Heat which helped them to set up their record BBL total. Brown 62 runs in 23 balls, with 4x4s and 6x6s which actually set the tone for Heat. McSweeney held his innings together with the rest of the batters and scored 84 in 51 balls. Sixers started their run chase nicely but Heat bowlers chipping the wickets timely and it was the Neser catch who gave some sigh of relief for the Heat.

Full and wide outside off, inside out hit to extra cover, fielder took the catch and goes over the fence, tried to flick it back which he failed to do so and he went over the rope and once again tried to chip it back and took the catch, tv umpire is checking and replay shows that it looks out when he 2nd timed flicked it back his feet were in the air and he jumped back inside the play area and took it back. That is an amazing fielding and OUT given. Neser was the fielder
