HUR won by 8 wickets
Player of the match: Ben McDermott
 
Hobart Hurricanes desperately needed a win and they've got one in brilliant fashion here. It was Ben McDermott who beautifully set it up with his scintillating 93-run knock. He found able support in skipper Peter Handcomb, who perfectly played second fiddle in their hundred plus match-winning partnership. It wasn't was easy at the start but the duo paced the chase very well. 

McDermott took his time to get in but once he started to get going, there was no stopping him and he just took the game away from the Heat. Brisbane Heat failed to pick wickets that cost them the game. They did not have enough runs to defend as well and they failed to take their chances. The only positive for them from this game was the Bash Boost Point that they won. The likes of David Grant and debutant Paddy Dooley were impressive but again, they did not enough runs to play with. 

This win now puts Hobart Hurricanes to the fourth spot on the table and they will only look to build on from here. As for Brisbane Heat, it's their seventh defeat now and they've really got to pick themselves up. While Hobart have all but strengthened their position in the top four, the Heat have their task cut out. A good all-round game for the Hurricanes then. Until next time, this is Pradeep and myself (Rishab) signing out. Have a great Saturday evening folks!
Done and dusted! Hurricanes complete a comprehensive win, much needed after two successive defeats. 3.4 overs and eight wickets to spare then. Thoroughly professional performance from the men in purple!
17.2 Will Prestwidge to D'Arcy Short, THAT'S IT! Hobart Hurricanes stormed to a much needed win and this is a stunning piece of batting from them tonight and pick up the crucial two points. Back of a length on the pads and Short on the backfoot whips it off thigh down to fine-leg and picks up the single!
Well, scores are levelled and this will be it then. Hurricanes just need a run more now! 
17.1 Will Prestwidge to D'Arcy Short, SIX! BANG! Short delivery into Short on the middle and leg as he swivels and then SMOKES it way over the deep backward square-leg fence for a maximum! SCORES ARE LEVEL!
Will this be the last over of the game?
No point in hanging around now and the Hurricanes have got to finish this as soon as they can to help their net run-rate. Clearly what they intend to do as well. That brings an end to a good spell from Grant. Just 7 more needed now then!

A magnificent innings from McDermott and he's put his side in the drivers seat here. Hurricanes are just a few hits away now and they will be looking to wrap things up soon. Just 13 more needed now from four overs!

Oh dear! McDermott is gone for 93. Unfortunate for him to miss out but he's done his job. Too late for Heat this!
