The big ticket Stars-Scorchers clash has begun, so switch tabs to follow that one. Cheers! 19:15 Local Time, 08:15 GMT, 13:45 IST: A strong performance from the Heat. It wasn't a rollover win by any means and such victories boost a team's morale. Chasing a challenging target of 174, Renegades did lose Finch early and then Marsh after the latter got a start but Harper kept them in cruise mode despite losing wickets at regular intervals. Once he fell to a shot too many, the innings just crumbled despite the odd boundary in between. There was excitement due to the Power Surge start but that flame went off pretty soon. Heat's bowlers used the pitch well, mixing up their pace and lengths, and cramping the batsmen. It was set up by the batsmen though, with Lynn and Labuschagne ensuring that the total got to a strong zone, helped by that late flurry from Gregory. So Heat stay alive and that race for qualification hottens up further. 18.4 Steketee to Zak Evans, out Caught by Chris Lynn!! Heat stay alive in BBL10! A slower ball to finish things, wider line and Evans's attempted loft over extra cover turns into a thick slice that lobs to short third man where Lynn makes no mistake. Easy as you like. Zak Evans c Chris Lynn b Steketee 6(3) [6s-1] Steketee to Zak Evans, THATS OUT!! Caught!! 18.3 Steketee to Zak Evans, SIX , clears the ropes! In the slot for Evans who shuffles across to play a lovely pick up shot over deep mid-wicket. Similar to the Prestwidge shot but the difference here being that Evans got the distance as well. A slightly better connection and that keeps the interest alive, albeit by a very small margin 18.2 Steketee to Zak Evans, no run, fuller and straighter, dug out back towards the bowler Peter Hatzoglou, right handed bat, comes to the crease 18.1 Steketee to Prestwidge, out Caught by Bryant!! High in the air.....but not long enough. Bryant judges the skier well near the ropes at deep mid-wicket, running across to his right. He suggests that he nearly lost it in the skies. Prestwidge with the mow across the line, seemed to have gotten a fair bit of bat on this but as it turned out, not enough. Just a wicket away now, Heat. Prestwidge c Bryant b Steketee 19(13) [4s-2 6s-1] Steketee to Prestwidge, THATS OUT!! Caught!! Mark Steketee [3.0-0-35-1] is back into the attack Zak Evans, right handed bat, comes to the crease Sensational over from Swepson. 33 runs | 12 balls. MLR: 141-8 after 18 overs 17.6 Swepson to Lalor, out Caught by Bryant!! Lalor succumbs to the pressure. Can't fault him, it's not his job but he tried. This was floated up by Swepson, not that full for the slog sweep but Lalor goes through with the shot. Off the top half part of the blade and skies it right down the throat of cow corner. You can hear the fat lady preparing to sing with this wicket. Lalor c Bryant b Swepson 5(5) [4s-1] Swepson to Lalor, THATS OUT!! Caught!! 17.5 Swepson to Prestwidge, 1 run, fuller and outside off, drilled down to long-off. Getting away from the Renegades now you'd think 17.4 Swepson to Prestwidge, no run, there is that man again - Labuschagne, diving away to his left at cover to prevent a single. Can't keep him out of the game at all, can you? Shortish outside off, Prestwidge punched this off the back foot. Won't get a single 17.3 Swepson to Lalor, 1 run, quicker one on a good length on middle and leg, punched off the back foot down to long-on 17.2 Swepson to Prestwidge, 1 run, skiddy half-tracker outside off, crunched off the back foot to sweeper cover 17.1 Swepson to Prestwidge, no run, flatter and outside off, punched off the back foot to extra cover 17.1 Swepson to Prestwidge, wide , sliding in around leg stump, skids through down leg to beat Prestwidge's sweep Load More Commentary
