Hobart Hurricanes

9.55pm You want a typical T20 in 2018, that's it. It was a James Anderson T20, swinging one way, then the other, then the other, then the other. Eventually, it came down to 13 off 6 balls, and the Hurricanes scraped past the Heat. But it didn't look like there would have been a last over, the way the wickets were falling.

But as you have it in T20s, it changes hands. The Heat kept finding the boundary when they needed it desperately. But the moment of this innings was surely the incredulous obstructing the field dismissal of Alex Ross, a decision that may have been wrong. Felt like the umpire gave him out just because he changed his angle. Anyway, the Hurricanes, as McCullum said, were deserving winners.

D'Arcy Short: "Hasn't sunk it, maybe later tonight, it will. I'd rather get there quickly, was playing on my mind a little bit. Not trying to go out all guns blazing right away."

Brendon McCullum: "Personally, I thought it wasn't the right decision. If I get fined for that, fair play. They deserved to win, but a shame it was marred by that. The way Short played, brilliant. Proud of the fact if we get beaten, we make the opposition beat us."

George Bailey: "We appealed for the run-out. I'm learning the rule as we speak, we saw Ross change his angle, and asked the umpire to check for obstructing the field. It's a scary place to play here. They come out all guns blazing, so an intimidating place to play."

19.6DT Christian to B Doggett, OUT, No run, 117 kph, taken at long-on. Another cutter on middle and leg, let's be honest, that was right in the slot. Smashed down to long-on, where Archer takes a catch running in. Hobart Hurricanes win four games on the bounce for the first time since their first four games since existence.

Right then, 4 off 1

19.5DT Christian to B Doggett, 2 runs, a low full toss, shovelled away through midwicket for two. Peirson chooses to come back for the second..
19.4DT Christian to JJ Peirson, BYES, 1 run, another offcutter, another bye, 116 kph, goes past Peirson's flick. Looked like he wanted two. But they will get one. Haven't seen so many dives at a swimming pool.

7 off 3.

19.3DT Christian to B Doggett, 1 run, 113 kph, offcutter around off, driven to long-off. Good result for Hurricanes..
19.2DT Christian to JJ Peirson, 1 run, just one that time. Or a run and a run-out? Good length delivery around off, skewed to long-off. The throw to Christian, who takes his time, decides not to throw, then changes his mind and hits the stumps at the batsman's end. Doggett makes it with another acrobatic full-length dive. Wild finish.

9 off 5

19.1DT Christian to JJ Peirson, 2 runs, full around off, jammed away past the stumps for a couple to long-on..
19.1DT Christian to B Doggett, WIDE, 2 runs, a slower delivery drifts down leg, wide. Peirson goes through for the run. Wade misses at the batsman's end. Christian runs lackadaisically towards the bowler's end, chooses not to throw and allows an extra run. He had to throw, there was no way Peirson would have come back if he missed. Poor game awareness.

jazz: "Too right about Faulkner, Tom. He is a shadow of the bloke who was arguably our best player in the 2015 WC"

Paul AJ Saw: "Good captaincy by Bailey bowling Boyce and Short a good spell. Hastings would've kept bowling Milenko at this stage. Sorry but still annoyed with the Stars."

James: "Short really wants that MOTM award, he's like that annoying kid at school who wants to bat every ball and bowl every over if he cant bat!"

Ashutosh Parame: "As the talk is on about the Australian T20 side, I guess NCN is one of the best T20 bowlers going around. Tye and NCN with support from Cummins is a deadly combinations for T20. Not to mention their super strong batting line-up! This team can dominate the T20 scene for quite a while"

StatsGuru: "To add to that include Starc, Tye and Laughlin to their bowling attack and they have a frightfully scary looking team. "

Stuart: "Lynn might be the king of the BBL but his international career is mediocre at best. Any swing will expose Lynn, Warner and Short in a few balls - go watch Amir vs Kohli in the Champions League. "

Hari: "If we are going to talk about IPL openers, let's not forget the guy who did it against India in India - Munro ! Might well be sold for as high as Stokes (given that Lynn is vulnerable to injuries)"

SamRoy: "D'Arcy Short (what a fantastic name; looks like French & English royalty) should play for Australia in forthcoming T20 matches vs England. Might turn into another Gilchrist or Warner at least in the LOI format. Craig Simmons was a slogger but Short is not."

Carwyn : "As much as I'd love to see Short get an IPL contract, I'm not convinced he will as Dunk has been consistently scoring big runs in the BBL and was only picked once in the auction. Then played 3 games for MI. Craig Simmons hit 2 tons in BBL03 - no IPL contract..... Let's no loose our heads just yet "

Paul AJ Saw: "I don't know why people are bagging Bailey for his captaincy. No one is worse than Hastings this season."
