Victorious Melbourne Renegades skipper, AARON FINCH HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. He smiles and says that his team has been on the receiving end for a few games this season and is happy that he could get his team over the line this time. Praises his bowlers for building up pressure, specially choking the middle order. Lauds the spinners. On Renegades' sad season, asked to look at the positives, Finch praises his side to not get rolled over in spite of losing so many games in a row. Adds that every match the side kept preparing and fighting hard.

Earlier in the day, a sluggish batting display from the Heat saw them scrape to 154, thanks largely to Matt Renshaw's 65. All the big guns were dismissed cheaply and the 'Gades were choking their run flow.

Aaron Finch and Aaron Finch all the way through. He struggled, was not timing the ball really well but still hung in there. Cooper played a cameo but it was the President's influence which calmed the nerves. Do not count out the cameo from Mohammad Nabi. His unbeaten 38 from 28 helped Finch slowly ease into his innings.

The Heat were not that great with the ball though. Perhaps they missed an extra spinner. Mujeeb was excellent but Swepson was not consistent. The seamers were not effective either. If you compare this to the Renegades' spinners, they really choked the opposition.

The Heat will be gutted. They did make things difficult for the Renegades and had that catch of Finch been taken by Prestwidge, things might have been different. When he dropped the 'Gades skipper, the hosts needed 21 from 14 balls. Anything could have happened. And then he misfielded towards the end as well giving a boundary to what should have been a single. Spare a thought for the youngster.

Aaron Finch has done it. He has batted through to help his side end the season with a win. The Heat are knocked out and the Thunder get in as the 5th team in the playoffs. A long chat between Finch, Lynn and de Villiers - massive respect for each other there. Probably asking, why did you drag us out along with you?

SIX! That should be the final nail in the coffin for the Heat! A length ball outside off, Finch swings this cleanly over square leg and the ball clears the ropes! The scores are level now.

Ben Cutting to bowl the final over.
