Pretty happy to lose the toss looking back now. We are starting to click as a unit. The youngsters stood up with the ball at the back end. We just got to maintain the momentum. Stoinis was going well, but Fletcher wasn't connecting really well. Pooran looked ominous before perishing and Maxwell went first ball. Stoinis followed soon and the Stars hit a roadblock. It was Larkin who lifted the innings at the fag end, but the Heat turned the game on its head with some stunning fielding at the ropes. Relay catches, unbelievable saves.. Just shows how important the fielding is in this format. If not for those efforts, could have been a different result. The Stars had only two overs of field restrictions too and that brings the question, is it better to bat first when rain is around with these new rules? We will continue to learn more with time. Tomorrow the Strikers are hosting the bottom-ranked Renegades. Join us for the party! See you. 23:44 Local Time, 13:44 GMT, 19:14 IST: Really important win for the Heat. They get four points out of this contest and jump to fifth place. But well done Nick Larkin. He almost stole this from the Heat's bag when they thought they had it in the pocket. The Heat batted so well. Lynn leading from the front with mighty hits and they were going close to ten per over before the first rain break. They enjoyed four overs of field restrictions too and Lynn hit two sixes off Maxwell in the 3-ball phase we got before the rain came back. The last two overs costed the Stars 42 runs in a reduced 10-over contest. The reworked DLS target was set to be 129. The Stars needed momentum early, but the Heat responded with two back-to-back great overs (second and third) to up the pressure MLS: 110-5 after 10 overs 9.6 Xavier Bartlett to Seb Gotch, no run, smashed straight to mid-off. Full delivery outside off stump, Gotch muscled that hard, hit it flat and mid-off stayed low to take a catch inches from the ground. The third ump is checking . The fielder has caught off the fingertips, so rocking and rolling to see if the ball was touching the ground and the green button is pressed 9.5 Xavier Bartlett to Larkin, 1 run, front leg out of the way for a journey over deep mid-wicket, but slower delivery meant the ball took the land route to the fielder there 9.4 Xavier Bartlett to Seb Gotch, 1 run, high full toss, not high enough to be asked to rebowl, hit to long-on 9.3 Xavier Bartlett to Larkin, 1 run, mishit and the Heat have done it! They can't lose now if they bowl just three legal deliveries. Slower delivery, Larkin mistimes the slog to deep mid-wicket 9.2 Xavier Bartlett to Larkin, no run, lovely yorker, gold of a yorker. Wide of off stump, Larkin couldn't squeeze it out.

Gotch needs to get Larkin back on strike MLS: 106-5 after 9 overs 8.6 Gregory to Larkin, FOUR , Gregory tries to repeat the same ball, but Larkin knew the plan, so he delayed the bat swing to connect well and guided this over backward point with a leap. 23 off that over 8.5 Gregory to Larkin, 2 runs, clever short slower delivery with a packed off-side field behind square, Larkin pushes it to the right of point 8.4 Gregory to Larkin, SIX , the free-hit has been lofted over long-on.

Freehit and extra ball now 8.3 Gregory to Larkin, FOUR , lofted over extra-cover again, awkward bounce for the man running to the right at deep cover and he can't cut it off 8.2 Gregory to Larkin, 2 runs, hey you! That's a six, but Max Bryant. You cannot do that, you just cannot do that. He backtracked, jumped and took it right-handed behing his head and then had the presence of mind to release it before he landed beyond the rope. Larkin picked the slower delivery and nailed that. just two runs in the end 8.1 Gregory to Larkin, FOUR , full and outside off stump, Larkin smashes the drive over extra-cover. 42 off 11 now, still doable MLS: 83-5 after 8 overs 7.6 Steketee to Larkin, 1 run, slapped away to backward point 7.5 Steketee to Larkin, SIX , The Heat have taken another relay catch. Steketee gets number four! You ask him if you bowled that well, he'd agree he got away with a couple of freebies. Was the leg-cutting slower delivery, Larkin picked it fine, pulls from the middle of the bat, sounded good, but had to manufacture pace that Steketee didn't offer. Bryant taking it an inch inside the rope, but released the ball to Bazley. Oh hang on! Was the right leg touching the ground beyond the rope just as he was releasing the ball?

Chris Lynn | Player of the Match: Tricky conditions and it wasn't easy for the bowlers with the wet ball, so just tried to cash in. Pretty happy to lose the toss looking back now. We are starting to click as a unit. The youngsters stood up with the ball at the back end. We just got to maintain the momentum.

Stoinis was going well, but Fletcher wasn't connecting really well. Pooran looked ominous before perishing and Maxwell went first ball. Stoinis followed soon and the Stars hit a roadblock. It was Larkin who lifted the innings at the fag end, but the Heat turned the game on its head with some stunning fielding at the ropes. Relay catches, unbelievable saves..
