20th Over
So a 4 run win for the Titans who claim all four points and consign the Heat to the bottom of the table and needing to win both their remaining games and hope results to go their way. Marchant de Lange is the deserved man of the match. See you next time!
The tail was left to do too much too late and they fell short of victory by four runs despite Sabburg's seven ball cameo.
They lost early wickets and were always on the back foot. Hopes and Christian steadied things but when Christian and then Hopes were dismissed, things looked dire for the Heat.
A thrilling finish to this low scoring match. The ball dominated and unfortunately for the Brisbane Heat, they've once again failed to chase down a low total. This time chasing 123, they've fallen four runs short!
McDermott bwd de Lange 2 (3b). FOW 10/119. Hauritz 0* (2b).
Over 19.6: de Lange to McDermott, no run, OUT, full and straight, perfect delivery to end it, nothing a top order player could do with that much less a tailender, clean bowled. BRH 10/119 (Hauritz 0, McDermott 2)
A boundary to tie off the final ball. A six to win it.
Over 19.5: de Lange to McDermott, two runs, full and straight and he clips this off his toes through backward square, they think about a third but turn it down
Over 19.4: de Lange to Hauritz, leg bye, makes room, he fires it in at the toes, rolls out behind point and they run the leg bye
Over 19.3: de Lange to McDermott, leg bye, length ball off the pad towards fine leg for a leg bye
Gale run out (Mosehle - direct) 1 (2b). FOW 9/115. Alister McDermott in. 9 needed from 4 deliveries.
Over 19.2: de Lange to Hauritz, no run, OUT, follows him with a short ball as he plays and misses, Gale looking for the bye, always suicidal as Mosehle underarms and direct hits!
Sabburg run out (van der Merwe/Mosehle) 19 (7b 2x4 1x6). FOW 8/115. Nathan Hauritz in. A suicide second run and a huge wicket. The dangerous Sabburg is gone.
Over 19.1: de Lange to Sabburg, one run, OUT, low full toss, doesn't hit it cleanly, through mid wicket, they charge back for the second run, thrown from van der Merwe to Mosehle perfect
19th Over
A second run and we'll go to the third umpire for a possible run out.
That maximum was a big blow from Sabburg who has played a gem of an innings. 18 off 6 deliveries. Anyone's match now. 10 needed from the final over. Marchant de Lange to bowl it from the Pavilion End.
Over 18.6: Morkel to Sabburg, one run, full and straight and he clips this one to square leg for a single. BRH 7/114 (Sabburg 18, Gale 1)

A huge over. 15 off. Eight off the last two deliveries. Game on! 20 needed from 12 but they'll have to combat Morne Morkel at the Shivalik End.
Over 17.6: Wiese to Sabburg, FOUR, and again, looking for the yorker, a low full toss angled down leg and a similar result, finds the rope at fine leg. BRH 6/104 (Hartley 7, Sabburg 10)
Over 17.5: Wiese to Sabburg, FOUR, oh no, full and down leg side, fine leg is up and he just needs any kind of bat, finds the rope at fine leg, big boundary!
