The Brisbane Heat’s unbeaten run in BBL13 continues, which was filled with plenty of drama against the Hobart Hurricanes. The Hurricanes, who had made a remarkable comeback from 3/7 chasing 118, fell short by just 1 run. Nathan Ellis, the Hurricanes captain, faced criticism from cricket legend Ricky Ponting as well as fans for his batting performance at the crucial stage of the game. The Heat now have a 6-0 record, sitting two games clear of the Sydney Sixers, but will face tough competition from the Perth Scorchers in their upcoming matches. The Hurricanes, on the other hand, missed an opportunity to move back into the top four and will need to win all three of their remaining matches to qualify for the finals. Despite the drama, player of the match Xavier Bartlett’s superb opening spell and captain Colin Munro’s fifty were instrumental in securing the Heat’s victory.
