Brisbane Heat

9.45pm Quite a disappointing day for the Brisbane Heat and the neutrals. The Heat managed just 73, their lowest BBL total, and third lowest overall. And the Sixers knocked it off clinically, in 10 overs, for just the loss of Daniel Hughes. It's very tough for the Brisbane Heat to make the playoffs now, with just one game left against the Melbourne Renegades. The Sixers will take plenty of confidence from this game, maybe the highlight of a frustrating season.

9.6Yasir Shah to NJ Maddinson, 1 run, that's the game. Just half of the maximum overs required for the Sixers to knock off the Heat's paltry target. Maddinson backs away and chips the ball over mid-off for a boundary, but they'll trot through before that.

The field comes in, midwicket goes back

9.5Yasir Shah to JL Denly, 1 run, 93 kph, quick on middle and lag, jammed away to long-on. The scores are now level.
9.4Yasir Shah to JL Denly, No run, a wide yorker outside off, plenty of flight, bunted back.
9.3Yasir Shah to JL Denly, No run, 88 kph, flight outside off, driven to one of two short covers.
9.2Yasir Shah to JL Denly, BOUNDARY, 6 runs, great hit, shuffles across, Yasir sees that and fires it in, flat, quick and short. Denly just picks it away, way over square leg. The timing has been rather good this evening from the Sixers batsmen.

Ash: "Disappointing end to Heat's season. McCullum's approach only really works when you have quality players that can execute, which is why they should have been a bit more conservative today with a number of their big players missing. "
