Run out brain fade costs Brisbane Heat


//

The Brisbane Heat's defeat at the hands of the Hobart Hurricanes has been marred by the controversial run out of Brendon McCullum.

McCullum looked set when he went for a quick single while batting with Max Bryant early in the Heat's innings.

However, after dabbing the ball to point, Bryant set upon McCullum’s crease only to find him standing his ground.

What ensued was an embarrassing standoff between two teammates which resulted in McCullum’s dismissal.

The former New Zealand dynamo was dismissed for four, while a quick spurt eventually ended up with Bryant dismissed for a brisk 30 off just 15 deliveries.

McCullum's run out confusion

The first BBL match played at Metricon Stadium was reduced to 19 overs a side after wild weather forced a 15-minute delay to the scheduled 6:00pm start.

But nothing could prepare the sodden 12,791-strong crowd for Cutting's brutal display, thrashing 58 off 32 balls with five sixes that gave Brisbane a sniff.

The Hurricanes emerged triumphant, bowling out the Heat for 144 in 18.4 overs with James Faulkner taking 3-25.

English import Jofra Archer took 2-23 including Cutting's vital wicket in the 18th over after the Heat allrounder had threatened to pull off a dramatic run chase.

"It was nice to see the boys perform under pressure. We didn't bat as well as we would have liked so, to be able to defend that, was pleasing," Hobart's George Bailey said.

D'Arcy slogs his way to 50

In reply to Hobart's 6-159, Brisbane's top order again collapsed to 4-56.

Brisbane's spirit appeared broken when captain Chris Lynn fell for 29 off 37 balls, caught by a diving Alex Doolan off Faulkner before Cutting came out swinging.

Earlier, man-of-the-match D'Arcy Short's 67 off 52 balls ensured Hobart posted a competitive total on a slow deck.

Short struck four fours and four sixes in his seventh BBL 50 after the Heat won the toss.

The Heat's next game is against Sydney Sixers on January 1 at Metricon Stadium, while Hobart travel again to play Sydney Thunder on Monday.
