Match Summary-

Brisbane Heat win by 4 runs.

Sam Hain 73* (41) | Mitchell Swepson 2/23 (4.0)
Thomas Rogers 41 (20) | Luke Wood 2/38 (4.0)

An absolute thriller in the end, and the youngster, Spencer Johnson won it for the Heat. They required 14 off the last over, and even after getting hit for a 4 on the first ball he kept his calm and defended it.

Stoinis and Cartwright almost won it for the Stars and cause a huge upset. From 104/3 with 85 runs required in 7 overs. They got too close to a win there. All 5 batters contributed well, got their starts but could not convert it into a big score and get them over the line. 

The Heat should have won it much earlier as they got both Cartwright and Stoinis out in the 18th and 19th over respectively. But both of those balls were no balls and they almost lost the game because of that.

Bazley started off with the wickets as he took just 1 today. Swepson took 2 wickets, but all the bowlers bowled well and they got over the line eventually. They will be happy with the win as they go 3rd in the ladder.
Spencer Johnson has done it. He defended 14 in the last over against two of the best batters.

19.6 Spencer Johnson to Marcus Stoinis, yorker on off and middle. Stoinis drills it towards long on. Johnson has bowled an exceedingly good delivery! THE HEAT WIN BY 4 RUNS!
Stoinis needs to hit a six on the last ball. How good has Johnson been in this over though.
19.5 Spencer Johnson to Hilton Cartwright, fullish and a tad wide outside off. Cartwright swings at it, misses and scampers through for a bye!
And now it's 7. 2 balls left. Super over?
19.4 Spencer Johnson to Hilton Cartwright, full and wide outside off. Cartwright drills it towards long off for a brace. SEVEN NEEDED NOW!
Just a single. 9 needed from 3 balls. 
19.3 Spencer Johnson to Marcus Stoinis, full and wide outside off. Stoinis hangs back and drills it towards cover for a run.
Well done young man. 10 required off 4 balls now.
19.2 Spencer Johnson to Marcus Stoinis, full and wide outside off. Stoinis hangs back and tries to carve it over cover. Alas! He is BEATEN!
10 required off 5 balls. 
19.1 Spencer Johnson to Marcus Stoinis, FOUR! TEN NEEDED NOW! Short of a length on off and middle. Stoinis gets into position early and scoops it up and over short fine leg for a boundary!
Johnson to bowl the last over. Can he defend this?

21 runs from this over. Stoinis goes big in the over, hits two sixers. He got a life as he got out but the third umpire gave it a no ball again. That can cost the Heat the match here. Cartwright hits a boundary as well. We are going down to the wire, and they need 14 from the last over.
