BALL BY BALL
Mujeeb Ur Rahman
Player Of The Match
5.3 - M U Rahman to S Watson
Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. That is huge! It's on the roof and out of the ground. Wow, what a hit from Shane Watson. Mujeeb looks perplexed. I think we're going to need a new ball. Well in fact the rain has just set in a bit here and finally the covers are being called on. Hopefully it will ease off and we'll be back underway soon. We've had enough overs to constitute a game and as it stands the Heat are ahead on DLS.The covers are still on here at the moment. To confirm if there is no more play Brisbane Heat will win.The cut off time here in Sydney is 10:25pm, just over 40 minutes away. There's no sign of the rain going away just yet but hopefully we will get back on in time to play out the conclusion of this match.Still no change in conditions here sadly. It looks like the rain will cut the Thunder run chase short. They are 34-2 with the current DLS par set at 49.Any further play I'm afraid to say has officially been ruled out of the question, which means Brisbane Heat win this match thanks to some explosive hitting from Brendon McCullum and Chris Lynn. Thunder hadn't got off to the quickest of starts and as a result were well short of the DLS par score when the rain forced them off. That's all from a rather damp Sydney tonight, goodnight.

4.6 - B Doggett to C Ferguson
Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to extra cover, by Bryant. Driven firmly but straight to cover. Just as Ferguson was starting to look dangerous he's gone, Doggett will take that. There is rain around and every wicket pushes that par score higher on the DLS for Brisbane Heat.
4.5 - B Doggett to C Ferguson
Back of a length, outside off stump moves in front pulling, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Picks the length early and hammers it. He'd guessed it would be short and shuffled across his stumps looking for that legside boundary. There was a fantastic sound when ball hit bat.
4.4 - B Doggett to S Watson
Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed to mid on for 1 run, shy attempt by Renshaw.
