    So that is it from this game. Brisbane Heat move to 3rd in the points table with this win. The misery piles on the Hobart Hurricanes as they find themselves second from the bottom. BBL action continues on Friday, 10th January as we have a Melbourne derby. Bottom dwellers Melbourne Renegades take on table-toppers Melbourne Stars. That match begins at 1910 local (0810 GMT). Join us for that one. Till then, cheers!

    BEN CUTTING IS MAN OF THE MATCH. He starts by saying that the wicket was a bit tricky and they lost wickets in heaps to make the run chase difficult. Praises Peirson for staying out in the middle and playing a very good innings.

    Earlier in the evening after opting to bat, Hurricanes struggled to get going. They lost wickets at regular intervals but a 61 from the returning skipper, Matthew Wade ensured that the tourists reached a respectable total of 126. Josh Lalor and Ben Laughlin were the tormentor-in-chief as the pair picked up 5 wickets amongst themselves.

    Kudos to the Hobart Hurricanes bowlers, defending a small total, they tried their best. Scott Boland single-handedly pulled his side back in the game. He was superb with the ball and ended up with the figures of 3/16 from his 4. Nathan Ellis supported him well but the rest started leaking runs towards the end and in the end the Hurricanes just could not pull it off.

    Finally Brisbane Heat chase down a target. Chasing a small target of 127, the Brisbane Heat got off to a good start with Max Bryant taking the charge and Banton taking his time to settle. Banton could not get his timing sorted and departed. But once Bryant departed, wickets started to go down in clusters. The hosts shot themselves on the foot and from 52/1 they found themselves reeling at 71/5. It looked like a collapse was on the card once again but Ben Cutting and Jimmy Pierson held their nerves and the pair added unbeaten 60 to take the side home.

    Thomas Rogers to Ben Cutting

    SIX! That has been flayed from the middle of the bat and that's game over. Short ball on middle, Cutting reads the length early and slams it over the deep mid-wicket fence. Excellent hands this from Ben. HEAT WIN BY 5 WICKETS.

    Thomas Rogers to Jimmy Peirson

    Back of a length ball on middle, Peirson looks to pull but gets an inside edge towards the keeper.

    Rogers to bowl the penultimate over. Might just be the last over of the game.

    On middle, flicked to mid on for a single.

    Clive Rose to Ben Cutting

    A three now. Short of a length ball around off, Cutting lofts it over extra cover again. The sweeper cover makes a valiant dive to save a run for his side.
