Earlier in the day, Chris Lynn and Max Bryant smashed the Hurricanes bowlers all over the park as they scored their highest total in the BBL history. This was also the 3rd highest total in this league. Chris Lynn narrowly missed out on his ton after Max Bryant's blitz and no bowler for the Hobart Hurricanes came out even with a little bit of credit to their name.

Coming to the Brisbane Heat's bowling, they used 7 bowlers, trying to mix it up and not let the batters settle. Zahir Khan and Ben Laughlin were the pick of the bowlers, giving away 33 runs off their 4 overs, taking a wicket each in their respective spells. Cutting provided the important wicket of skipper McDermott which started the collapse for the Hurricanes.

A convincing win for the visitors here and they would be hoping to build from here on. Right from the start of the second innings, it looked like the Hobart Hurricanes were never in the game although Caleb Jewell did provide them with a brisk start. Each of the top five batters got off to starts but none of them could cross even the 30-run mark. When chasing a total of above 200, at least one player has to play a big knock and no one was able to provide that boost for the hosts. After getting off to a good start, the Hurricanes collapsed from 79/1 to 118/5. That was enough for the Brisbane Heat to control the game completely from there onward.

MAN OF THE MATCH, CHRIS LYNN terms it a polished effort. He would have liked a bigger win but says that they will take it at this stage. Adds that Max Bryant was in great form and it was a good surface to bat on. Rues some of the dropped catches. Tells that the dressing room was in good spirits in spite of the losses and it's all about learning from the mistakes. Wants to try and win back-to-back matches and peak at the right time.

Jack Prestwidge to James Faulkner

Full ball way outside off, Faulkner looks to jam it out but misses. And that will be it as Brisbane Heat beat Hobart Hurricanes by 31 runs.

W 19.5
Jack Prestwidge to Riley Meredith

OUT! TIMBER! Meredith departs now. A full toss on the off pole line, at 140.9 kph. Meredith looks to play at it but completely misses the ball. It goes on to hit the off pole and the Hurricanes are 9 down now. However, the match will not end as James Faulkner is coming out to face the final ball of the innings, despite suffering from a calf injury.

Jack Prestwidge to Qais Ahmad

DROPPED! Would have been a wonder catch for Peirson. Length ball outside off, Qais goes hard at it but gets a faint edge on it. The keeper dives full stretch to his right but puts the catch down.

W 19.3
Jack Prestwidge to Clive Rose

OUT! CAUGHT! An entertaining knock by Rose comes to an end. A length ball outside off, Rose looks to smash this one towards the cover region. He gets more height on it than distance. Josh Lalor from sweeper cover gets under it and takes a good catch. The Hurricanes are 8 down now and Meredith, is probably the last man in for the Hurricanes as James Faulkner had gone off injured during their bowling innings.

0 19.2
Jack Prestwidge to Clive Rose

Outside off, Rose looks to go hard at this one but misses.
