9.40pm That is that. Brisbane Heat break their duck with his five-wicket win. Smiles in the Heat camp. They lost their openers early to Coulter-Nile, but a series of contributions from the middle order carried the Heat past the line. Lynn scrapped his way to 33 off 34 balls on a two-paced pitch while Cutting and Burns made contrasting cameos to finish the chase. A day after being dropped from Australia's ODI squad, Nathan Coulter-Nile ran in hard, hit 140ks, and came away with three wickets. There were reports that he'd been left out because of a back complaint. Coulter-Nile later clarified to ABC Radio that he was okay and suggested that there might have been a miscommunication between the selectors and the medical staff.

Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. Alex Malcolm's report will be up shortly. Until next time, this is Deivarayan Muthu signing off on the behalf of P Ranjith. Cheers

Mujeeb is the Player of the Match for his outstanding spell of 4-0-10-2: I am excited. This is my first Player of the Match award in Big Bash.

Mujeeb, indeed, is a man of few words but he lets it rip with the ball

McCullum: It's a huge relief. To travel all the way to Perth and get the win is an exceptional show of courage. I lost the ball a bit under the lights but threw my hands up at the ball and stopped it. Mujeeb is really quiet off the field but he's courageous and the performances he is putting up is great. He doesn't say a lot but the boys enjoy his company.
