Hurricanes control their own destiny now for the final playoff berth. A win over the last place Melbourne Renegades and they claim the fifth and final playoff spot. A loss by the Hurricanes opens the door for the Melbourne Stars. They'll need to upset the Sydney Sixers, who have already clinched a playoff berth and do so with a bonus point as well to join Adelaide Strikers on 28 points but the Stars currently have a superior net run rate tiebreak advantage. If the Hurricanes lose and the Stars can't claim a bonus point regardless of the full match result, the Adelaide Strikers will backdoor their way into the final playoff spot. Head over for match commentary on the Hurricanes v Renegades match which is now underway with the Renegades batting first. That's it from Adelaide. I'm Peter Della Penna. Take care!

Man of the Match Marnus Labuschagne: "Our season has come down to the last game the last few years and we've made a meal of it. But Benny Laughlin got us through today with hitting that wide yorker. We rolled the dice in the Power Surge and I don't know if the skipper will go to me again after that. Just with our fielding and saving crucial runs in the ring, Lynny got us off to a good start too so there's a lot of good things to take and momentum to take us to Brisbane."

3.17 pm For 35 overs, it looked like the Heat were going to do it the easy way. And then for the last five overs they opted to do it the hard way. So now only one playoff spot left. The Strikers are now dependent on the Renegades and Sixers to beat the Hurricanes and Stars respectively if they're to claim that final playoff berth.

Laughlin to Marsh, no run, knee high full toss very wide outside off, it was there for Marsh to slam for another six on the height but yet again he flubs this into the ground. It skittles along the turf to deep midwicket and they don't bother running a single.The Heat hold on for dear life to win by six runs and clinch a playoff berth!

Six needed to force a super over now. Labuschagne comes off the rope for a chat with Laughlin and Lynn to discuss what to bowl.

Laughlin to Marsh, 2 runs, wide yorker scuffed out to long-on, they beat the relay to the keeper's end.

Two boundaries forces a super over. Four and six by Marsh will win the match.

Laughlin to Marsh, 1 run, knee high full toss wide outside off, shuffles way across his stumps and tries to muscle this over the midwicket rope but almost swings too hard and flubs it into the ground to the man on the rope for one.
