5:10 PM IST | So here we are!! The 2012-13 version of the BBL finals will be re-lived. After 10 years, both franchises will meet each other at the finals of BBL. It was the Heat who were victorious then. Until then, they have failed to reach the finals in the following seasons. 

So this is it from a low-thriller clash. Arijit Kundu at this end, signing off alongside co-commentator Wali Parvez and scorer/analyst Manish Bishnoi. Stay tuned for cricketing actions across our network.
Michael Neser (Player of the Match): “Feels amazing, was a tough game, they have a class bowling attack. Tricky wicket but it feels good to be in the finals. The pace of the wicket was tricky as it was holding the ball a bit but fortune favors the brave.

Losing those test players was a blow to us, but every one of us contributed, fortunately, it was me this time. Those four fours in an over were the highlight for me and the surge worked in our favor. The backend of the tournament has been fantastic and we’re peaking at the right time.

Anything could happen in the final, it’s going to be tough but you never know. They (Perth Scorchers) are a class bowling and batting team, they’re very well drilled and it’s going to be tough, but we’ve been firing as well so it’s going to be interesting.”
4:50 PM IST | What a low-scoring thriller we’ve been treated to at the Challenger of the Big Bash League 2022-23. The Heat manages to gush into the finals on the back of hattrick wins. First, it was the Thunder, then the Renegades and now they defeat the Sydney Sixers to meet Perth Scorchers at the ultimatum of the Big Bash League 2022-23.

The Heat didn’t trail a smooth path chasing a target of 117 runs. Sam Heazlett and Joshua Brown gave a brisk start to the Heat, scoring 31 runs for the opening stand. A run-out ended up with Heazlett at the danger end and it opened the way for a collapse.

Nathan McSweeney who got an opportunity in place of Marnus Labuschagne failed to light up. In addition, the duo that saved Heat during crucial moments - Sam Hain and Jimmy Peirson didn't have a rosy day.

The game seemed to be sailing from one end to the other with Sydney Sixers trying to crawl back. But a wonderful knock from Michael Neser ensured that the Heat have some moments to live for. When the side was reeling at 56-5, the Queenslander eased off the pressure. He carved away runs at either sides. In the 16th over, he smacked four consecutive boundaries against Hayden Kerr and shifted the momentum. 

The equation got minimized to less than run-a-ball and with Neser at one end, the scoreboard touched the target in a matter of time. 

Earlier, the Sydney Sixers won the toss and opted to bat first. The openers failed to give a good start and hurried back to the pavilion. The top three touched the double-digit mark but none could go past the 25 runs.

Matt Kuhnemann gave a great start with the ball in hand for the Heat. The off-spinner removed Josh Philippe, Moises Henriques, and Daniel Hughes. Spencer Johnson, Michael Neser, and Nathan McSweeney were tremendous in the middle phases. Spencer and Neser gave away less than run-a-ball during the Power Surge and extracted wickets as well. The Sixers were curtailed down to 116 runs at the end of 20 overs with Spencer Johnson and Matthew Kuhnemann bagging three wickets.

Had the Sixers' added 20 more runs to the tally, they would have had a fair chance to scurry into the finals.

Congratulations to the Heat for earning the tickets to the final.

18.2 B Dwarshuis to M Neser
4 FOUR RUNS AND THAT'S THAT! Neser with the winning runs, Dwarshuis bowls it at a length at middle, Neser makes room and powers that over the mid-on region to get a boundary and win his side the game through a memorable knock of 48 (32)*
18.1 B Dwarshuis to J Bazley
1 Dwarshuis bowls it up at off, Bazley drives the ball to mid-off and calls for one, the fielder at mid-off collects and throws the ball but it misses the stumps at the non-strikers end as it would have been out!
5 runs needed to win from the last 12 balls.

The TV umpire has been referred for a stumping chance. Seems like the shoe is stuck in the soil while Philippe dislodged the bails. NOT OUT is the final call.
16.6 I Naveed to J Bazley

16.5 I Naveed to J Bazley
0 Wrong'un! Slides it in from outside off to and Bazley punches the ball to the fielder at point.

0 Bowls it full, pitches it at off and it's been pushed towards the fielder at covers. 
16.3 I Naveed to M Neser
3 Bowls it fuller, keeps it outside off, Neser tries to go for the cover drive and edges it through the third-man region for three more runs.
