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 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.
