14.3 to M Labuschagne, Round the wicket again to the right-hander, and he goes hard, into the pitch, and into the body as Labuschagne looks to create room. Cramped on the pull, he ends up hitting in the air, to the left of Stoinis who takes a good, low catch running in off the midwicket boundary. 148/2
6.6 to UT Khawaja, only three off the over so far, and the pressure tells on Khawaja, who takes on deep midwicket against this flighted delivery, and ends up picking out the fielder. 66/1
18.1 to SW Billings, trusts in his hard-length, into-the-body method, and gets the reward. Billings looks to create room, NCN follows him, and he cramps him on the pull and gets him caught at deep square leg. 193/3

0.3 to SB Harper, four more, and it's off the pad, but is there a chance Harper's out here? Shuffles a long way across, misses the flick, and the ball runs away very fine, to the fine leg boundary, and Heat think long and hard and call for an lbw review. Impact is definitely in line because he's moved a long way across his stumps, exposing leg stump and a bit of middle, and the ball has nipped in to beat his inside edge. He's on his toes, and it's hit near his knee roll... It's done a lot off the pitch, but not enough to miss leg stump. It's hitting a good chunk of it, according to ball-tracking, and Neser has got Heat the early breakthrough. 5/1
0.6 to TF Rogers, two wickets in the first over! Neser is all over the Stars! Goes short, angles it a long way across Rogers to make the left-hander drag his pull from well outside off stump. Gets it to bounce quite high too. All he manages is a top-edge that climbs high into the night sky before dropping into Billings' gloves behind the stumps. Didn't have to move much at all. 6/2
14.1 to Usama Mir, looks to step across and scoop this full, stump-to-stump ball over short fine leg, but it's the slower one, and he's unable to manufacture the pace he needs to clear that fielder. Ends up as a simple catch to Swepson. 108/8
14.4 to JS Paris, slower length ball on the stumps, and is that the match? Paris sweeps in the air, and deep backward square leg, Walter, comes in off the rope and takes a lovely low catch diving forward. 109/9
11.1 to LA Dawson, short, angling across to off stump, and Dawson can't control his pull against that angle. Goes high in the air, towards deep square leg, and he moves a few yards to his left and completes a simple catch. 88/6
5.6 to GJ Maxwell, gone, Swepson's got the big wicket! Full on leg stump, and it's perhaps too full for Maxwell to get the desired power and elevation on this reverse-sweep. Hits it well, but straight to the man at deep cover. 49/3
7.3 to JA Burns, gottim! That's quick and skiddy and homing in on the stumps, and Burns pays the price for making room and trying to cut the wrong ball. Had to take his chances, though, with the required rate what it is, and loses his off stump int he process. 54/5
15.1 to OP Stone, and there's the game. Legbreak targeting the stumps, and Stone sweeps and misses. The Heat have won by 103 runs. 111/10
6.4 to MP Stoinis, four down, Stoinis is gone! It's short and wide, and Stoinis would have slapped that either side of the short extra-cover fielder for four on another day, but on this day he hits it straight to the man, Khawaja, who grabs it in both hands, over his head to his left. 52/4
12.5 to HWR Cartwright, Seven down. Back of a length, angling into the hip, and he takes on the man on the square leg boundary with the pull, but can't quite clear him. Judges the catch well in the end, finishing a foot or so in front of the rope. 98/7
