And HINKLEYY finishes off in style as a magnificent partnership of 86 with Harris has ensured Brisbane Heat get over the line. And what an absolutely sensational, rational, astounding and phenomenal batting this from them. Those 2 wickets off them and the pressure did not get the better of them as Kinkley steadied the ship first Harris.
Harris on the other hand has been utterly graceful just like her name. She was the driver of this target and is unbeaten at the end to see her side off in this chase.

Hobart Hurricanes had no answer and the bowling performance was largely disappointing with an exception of Nicola Carey who strikes twice in her first over was held back from bowling her overs after that until she came to bowl the 18th over and pretty much the game was lost there.
But we do not believe in the fact that individuals win you matches, they can at the most get you to a winning position.
The decision to hold Carey back backfired as they did not have enough runs to take that gamble but yet they did.

Brisbane Heat were clinical in all the three departments as their bowlers getting them into an excellent position couple of overs into the powerplay and apart from few good batting instances, the Hurricanes were really not up in the contest.

Losing 4 wickets in the powerplay does not help your cause at all as the mountain becomes even huge to climb let alone conquer. but somehow Johnston ensured they get to a decent score with crucial roles from Vlaeminck and others in the latter overs.

Heat had a cut-out target in front of them and the openers did what they were tasked with some adorable shots that would have left you in awe.
But Nicola Carey with her magic first over turned the table in Hurricanes favour by taking two quick wickets. Hinkley soon joined harris for the chase and we just witnessed the finesse with which both played and sealed the deal for their team.
