0.5 to JJ Peirson, caught behind! This carries! He charges a fuller outswinger, it shapes away late and Peirson tries to launch over mid-off, gets a thin edge and it flats through to the keeper. 5/1
18.1 to M Bryant, Slapped straight to long-off! Wide on a length, 129ks, Bryant held his base and tried to carve it but got it off the toe. Bread-basket catch for the skipper. Good cameo from Bryant but how much will this cost Heat?. 147/4
18.5 to PI Walter, Low fully has been bulleted to short midwicket. Sharp catch by the sub, Mitch Perry, who takes a reflex catch in front of his face. Walter got low and was in a good position to lift it but couldn't get the elevation. Fielder was well inside the ring which was a brave call from the skip. Works in the end. Looked to have stung the fielder. 153/5
18.6 to MG Neser, Neser comes and goes, Abbott has three in his last over. Legcutter on a slight back of a length, turned away towards the off-side tramline and Neser had a massive swipe. It skied up off the top edge and Murphy was right under it at midwicket. 153/6
12.2 to J Brown, SOK is interested in the lbw, was it bat first? Sixers chat, Henriques reviews. Fullish ball angling in, landed around off and came in with the angle. Brown stood leg side of the ball and tried to jam it away. It hit the back pad before bat, huge cheer from the crowd as the slow-motion replay comes on. Speedometer showed 79ks but that ball looked faster. Hawk-eye confirms it was hitting in line and would go on to crash middle and off. The centurion from the last game is gone, SOK gets a lot of love from team-mates. He has 99 BBL wickets now. 90/3
11.6 to NA McSweeney, Dwarshuis closes out a great over by removing the skipper. McSweeney helped it up and over off a length but the ball dipped right under Murphy's throat at deep fine leg.. 90/2

0.3 to DP Hughes, edged and taken beautifully at slip! Renshaw pouches it. Back of a length, angled across wide of off, he tries to lash it off the back foot through cover with a vertical bat, gets a thick edge and Renshaw takes it very nicely moving to his left. 3/1
17.2 to SA Abbott, Has Neser taken a miraculous catch? He ran to the left from long-on, was falling down and reached up and took it with both hands. He had one knee on the ground, used his left hand to balance himself, yanked his right elbow back and threw it to long-off running in from the other side. His palm was in the air and not on the rope while releasing it. That'll be thumbnails of crazy-catch compilations. Was a slot ball at 123ks on off that Abott skied across the line, it went miles high in the air and should've been six. 112/9
17.3 to SNJ O'Keefe, Tumbling catch taken at mid-off, Heat are in a huddle right after. They have taken down Sixers in their home to win BBL 13. Into the pitch, SOK made room and tried to belt it up and over. Got a top edge, Walter took a dolly and celebrations followed.. 112/10
3.6 to J Edwards, chopped on! 137kph, back of a length, angled across, it stays down a touch and Edwards caught on the crease, tries to jab at it away from his body and drags it onto middle and off via the inside edge!. 34/2
8.3 to JR Philippe, miscued to wide mid-on! Smart short ball, angled across and wide of off, Philippe tried to drag it against the angle, it balloons off a thick top edge and floats to Neser on the circle. Easy catch.. 56/3
Johnson completes a four-for by knocking another batter out pulling. Kerr made room and got followed, Johnson went into the pitch again and induced the splice.. 73/5
12.2 to BJ Dwarshuis, Top edge, taken at short third, Sixers now in skittle mode. Dwarshuis stepped leg side and tried to heave across the line, the 143ks length ball tucked him up and induced the edge. It ballooned right up for Buckingham to complete a dolly. Three for Johnson.. 73/6
14.5 to H Kerr, Johnson completes a four-for by knocking another batter out pulling. Kerr made room and got followed, Johnson went into the pitch again and induced the splice.. 94/8
9.2 to JC Silk, stumped! Superb delivery and an even better stumping! Leg break, tossed up on off, he reaches forward to push it down the ground, it rips from the good part of the pitch past the outside edge and Peirson whipped the bails off in a flash before Silk could reach his foot back. A leg break from the top shelf! Heat on top. 57/4
13.4 to J Davies, Swepson silences the crowd by getting Davies to slog sweep it straight to deep-backward square. Buckingham, the sub-fielder, looks back at the crowd with a grin and runs back. Swepson's pumped too. Brave cameo from Davies but Heat effectively have one hand on the trophy.. 85/7
11.3 to MC Henriques, Slower bouncer gets the skipper! Is that the game? Dug deep into the pitch, lands around leg and turns away sharply. Henriques tried to pull it from chest-height but lost the grip on his handle as he top edged it. Ball looped right up to Neser at midwicket. Walter is all charged for the plane celebration, don't think he could complete it as team-mates swarmed in. 70/5
