Brisbane Heat have done no harm to their semi-final qualification hopes with a huge win over the Melbourne Stars in the 53rd match of the Big Bash League (BBL). This victory from the Heat have made things interesting now & has kept the Sydney Thunder also alive in the tournament. Thunder will need a huge victory now over the Hobart Hurricanes on Saturday to better the Heat’s net run-rate.

Moreover, whichever team stays alive after the second game on Saturday, will have their eyes glued to the TV sets when the Melbourne Stars will take on Sydney Sixers. The Stars only need to win their last league game to qualify but that has been the case for them in the past two games as well. But they haven’t got things together & are left with a lot to do in the last match.

Max Bryant & Ben Cutting opened the innings for the Brisbane Heat in the 157-run chase & literally ripped apart the Stars bowling attack from the word go. The duo smacked the ball to all the parts of the ground & lit up The Gabba with their clean hitting. A total of 13 sixes & 10 fours were hit by them 158 runs were with a massive 10 overs to spare.

The Stars bowlers were left shocked & could do nothing but admire the way their opponents batted. It was one of the quickest chases in the history of T20s & it couldn’t have come at a better time for the Heat.
