Hobart Hurricanes vs Brisbane Heat Highlights
Match 32: Hobart Hurricanes v Brisbane Heat Highlights Big Bash League Season 2 played on 12th January 2013. KFC Big Bash Series Cricket Highlights 2013.
Luke Pomersbach's brutal assault at the top of the order fired Brisbane Heat to the semi-final of the BBL as they dished out an eight-wicket mauling to Hobart Hurricanes at the Bellerive Oval. Pomersbach smashed 82 off just 42 balls as Heat overhauled the 151-run target in the 15th over to get the much-needed win which put them on equal points with Hurricanes and Adelaide strikers, but their superior run rate helped them set up a semi-final clash with Melbourne Renegades.
Pomersbach set about the chase at a frenetic pace on a sticky Hobart pitch and was particularly severe on Doug Bollinger and Jason Krejza. While Bollinger was taken for 27 off his first two overs, Krejza leaked 31 from his two. Pomersbach brought up his half-century off 24 balls, the fastest fifty of this year's competition, and hit 13 fours and two sixes. Bollinger removed the other opener, Peter Forrest, early, but a 107-run stand in less than 10 overs between Pomerbach and Joe Burns ended Hurricanes' tournament.
