The Heat started strong with flyhalf Chris Lynn (28) and Nathan McSweeney (20) sending them on a flyer, but after both fell the innings stalled.

Ben Duckett held the Heat’s innings together, raising his 50 points to 17th, including three fours and two towering sixes before Adam Zampa knocked him out for 51.

However, the show was stolen by Glenn Maxwell who produced a catch for the ages to fire Sam Heazlett for 9 years.

Maxwell ran back and threw his left arm back with a dive to trap Heazlett on the way down.

“That’s the BBL rub,” Brett Lee said.

“I think it’s one of the best catches I’ve ever seen in any form of cricket.

“It’s a catch for the ages.”

“It’s the best take ever in the BBL,” said Andrew Symonds.

“There are different types of captures, but for the degree of difficulty, this is the best.”
