19th Over
Thanks for joining us in Brisbane tonight where the Sydney Sixers have run out 5 wicket winners with an over to spare. Both teams have a match to go and need plenty of results to go their ways to make the Finals. See you again tomorrow from Melbourne.
Sydney Sixers 5/128 - Lumb 61* (55), Cutting 2/9 (3), Christian 2/21 (3) defeated Brisbane Heat 9/127 - Pomersbach 37 (34), O'Keefe 3/21 (4), Hazelwood 3/32 (4) by 5 wickets. Points - SYS 2, BRH 0. Crowd - 14,362. Man of the Match - Michael Lumb
The Sydney Sixers though are still alive, mathematically at least, but will need plenty to go their way. The bowling was outstanding and Michael Lumb played a great innings to ensure his side got home. He has been named player of the match.
Not enough runs for the Brisbane Heat tonight on a pitch that was a little slow, but was better than the 128 run target suggested. Brisbane were probably 30 runs short of a par score. Their season is probably over, but will hold hope going into next week.
Over 18.6: Roach to Lumb, FOUR, and that will do it as Lumb swings the ball along the ground through midwicket and it will race to the boundary. The Sydney Sixers have won by 5 wickets with 6 balls to spare. SYS 5/128 (Lumb 61, O'Keefe 1)
Over 18.5: Roach to Lumb, no run, swings and misses at a full ball just outside off stump.
Over 18.4: Roach to Lumb, two runs, short ball slapped away high over cover and short of Lynn in the deep, two more and just 4 to win.
Over 18.3: Roach to Lumb, no run, gets across and squeezes a yorker to the off-side.
Over 18.2: Roach to Lumb, two runs, lofts a drive high in the air with the field up. McDermott is sprinting after it but the ball will land just wide of him, 6 to win.
Over 18.1: Roach to O'Keefe, one run, backs away and knocks a drive away to mid off.
18th Over
Over 17.6: Christian to Lumb, SIX, great shot from Lumb launching the ball flat and hard over midwicket for a big Six! It brings up his 50 off his 50th ball, and the Sixers need just 9 to win. SYS 5/119 (Lumb 53, O'Keefe 0)
Over 17.5: Christian to Lumb, two runs, shuffles across and flicks the ball out forward of square leg. They're running hard and get back for a second.
D.Hughes - c:Cutting b:Christian 7 (10). FOW 5/111 (17.4), 5th wicket partnership (Lumb/Hughes) of 12 runs. The new batsman is Steve O'Keefe.
Over 17.4: Christian to Hughes, no run, OUT, and there's a wicket so the Heat are still alive! It was short and rising again, Hughes top-edged a hook shot and Cutting takes it easily running back from mid on.
Over 17.3: Christian to Lumb, one run, down the pitch and again he chips a single away to long off.
Over 17.2: Christian to Hughes, one run, slower bouncer and Hughes plays it well with a hook shot to deep backward square leg.
Over 17.1: Christian to Lumb, one run, around the wicket and Lumb chips a slower ball just over Christian's head to long off.
