full and on middle and it's all over. De Lange is the hero as he makes a mess of McDermott's stumps. Terrific ball under pressure
So that is it from the first game, the next match will begin in just under 30 minutes, so tune in to the live commentary for that one. For now, this is Rohan Sharma saying good night, and good luck.
Marchant de Lange, Man of the Match: Very enjoyable. A bit like back home so felt comfortable. A little bit of nerves there, but yeah the main key was to stay calm and do the basics right.
Henry Davids, Titans captain: A bit close there. The wickets cost us a lot of momentum (in the first innings). They guys kept putting the ball in the good areas and we ended up on top today.
Hang in there for the post-match presentation, with quotes from the captains.
What did I tell you? I told you we were in for a cracker, and Brisbane and Titans did not fail to deliver. Initially, it looked like the Titans would lose, especially with the sub-par total they eventually fronted up. However, Davids was judicious with his bowling changes, and kept Brisbane guessing till the very end. Narrow victory for the Titans, as they hold on by just four runs. De Lange was the star of the show for them with the ball, as he bowled with pace and hostility in his earlier spell, before bowling a terrific final over to see his team through. Brisbane are in some trouble now, with two losses out of two.
5 needed off the final ball. Are we in for a Miandad finish? Or is a Super-Over in the prospects?
full and on leg stump. McDermott able to squeeze this square on the leg side
full and outside off as Brisbane get another leg-bye
on the pads and the pair scamper for a quick single
short ball and Hauritz, who backs away to try and hit it over the keeper, is unable to get anything on it. He goes for the single though, as his partner is scrambling to make the run, but Gale is short of his ground when the keeper runs down the striker's end
And with that, it is time for Nathan Hauritz at No. 10
full toss on middle and Sabburg flicks this to midwicket, immediately setting off for the single. He wants two, however, and that is the fatal mistake as is well short of his ground when the throw from the deep by Roelof reaches Mosehle, the keeper, who whips off the bails, and Hau
So 10 needed off the final over, and it is that man, De Lange, who will attempt to break Brisbane's heart
full delivery on the leg stump, Sabburg turns it to square leg and keeps strike
oops, commentator's jinx. Full delivery on the leg stump and Sabburg heaves this over midwicket for a six. No one expected this, especially with Morne firing them in
Good over so far, with just three runs in four balls...
full delivery, just outside off, as Gale tries to land a bat on it, but ends up carrying through to the keeper
Senthil: "How Morne Morkel will bowl his last over will decide the outcome of this match, since he can be erratic or absolutely unplayable as well, who is going to turn now?"
full and well wide of off stump as Sabburg sticks his bat out to get a run
length ball and wide of off stump as Gale is able to cut this away to sweeper cover
And Matthew Gale, who took a four-for on T20 debut earlier, walks into the cauldron
bowled him! Hartley goes for the mow straight down the ground, and Morne nails the off stump. Some added suspense to this encounter with the wicket falling in the late overs
The experienced Morne Morkel comes in to limit the damage. 20 needed of 12.
Wiese is losing the plot as Sabburg clips him once again down the pads for a second consecutive boundary
full and going down the pads. Sabburg simply helps this on its way to the fine leg boundary. This is turning out to be a good over for the Heat
short ball and Sabburg pulls this to the leg side for a couple
Chris Sabburg walks in at No. 8. Wiese going round the wicket again
full toss slower ball and Lynn can do no better than find Roelof at deep extra-cover. This one could have been drilled anywhere. Wonder how much this will affect the chase?
Going back over to Lynn
full and on middle and Hartley able to flick this square on the leg side
Wiese coming round the wicket now to Hartley
length ball, which just enough room to cut away on the off stump, as Hartley is able to hit it right of cover for a boundary. Much needed runs here for Heat
So 35 required off 18. Could be a real nail-biter now. And Wiese is on to bowl his final over
And of course, all the Hopes puns have to come through... ajit: "Brisbane "HOPES" are Gone"
full and wide and Lynn is able to squirt it to deep extra-cover
back of a length on off stump which Hartley is able to clip through the leg side
