Brisbane Heat 3 for 115 (Lynn 48, Zampa 2-7) defeated Melbourne Stars 5 for 110 (Larkin 35 *, Steketee 3) -25) by 17 runs (DLS method)

Chris Lynn returned to his best barnstorming at 48 as the Brisbane Heat celebrated their fourth win in five games to get past the Melbourne Stars in the BBL table in a bizarre, rain-stricken match on the Gold Coast

Rain delayed the start and cut the game down to a 17-over affair before two half-hour interruptions during the first innings of the Heat again cut it down to a ten-over match, causing havoc with bowling restrictions and DLS calculations

Lynn held his nerve during 48 of 23 balls, including three fours and four sixes.He combined for 68 in 64 overs with Max Bryant before Adam Zampa claimed two wickets in two balls and star skipper Glenn Maxwell played before the Rain with his key cones and couldn’t use them when overs were reduced as he and Hilton Cartwright were carted by Joe Burns and Lewis Gregory to allow Heat Post 3 for 115 with the Stars’ DLS target revised to 129 p>

Andre Fletcher struggled in the chase, scoring only 15 out of 13 to put the stars behind the rate they could never catch Marcus Stoinis made 34 out of 20 and Nick Larkin made 35 out of 16, but some disciplined heat bowling and phenomenal catching and outfielding saw the stars fall short of 18 runs

Lynn came into play as the X-Factor submarine in the final game of the Heat against Sydney Thunder, scoring 30 out of 16 to set up the pursuit, but the skipper was back at the helm, leading from the front with a vintage performance

Lynn and Bryant together scored 47 in power play, the tournament’s best yet. They enjoyed the pace of Haris Rauf, Sam Rainbird and Billy Stanlake as Rain smeared the surface and helped them build seven fours and three sixs in a partnership of 67 balls out of 40 to hit The quality of the strike was phenomenal and relentless It would have continued if it had not been for a stunning juggling shot of Stoinis taking cover from Zampa to remove Bryant Zampa followed that up by kicking the next ball through Denly’s defense shoved to pin him down and stop the swing of heat

Just as the stars were picking up speed, the rain came in. A 30-minute delay reduced the game to 14 overs-a-side, but changed the over limits for the bowlers Maxwell had in the first eight overs with two overs played and lost by each of his four frontline bowlers. He had to turn to Lynn on resumption and was sent in for consecutive sixes before the rain stopped playing

Another 30 minute delay reduced the game to a ten-player game The Heat had ten balls to delight Maxwell and another part-time worker Maxwell bowled Lynn’s first ball cleanly but his last went for six , and substitute Tom O’Connell dropped Gregory over the rope in deep midfield, Cartwright was told to roll tenth and gave up 22 runs, including an above waist no-ball for four and a poorly executed slower ball- Bouncer disappearing over the rope Burns ended up 22 out of 11 and Gregory 9 out of 3, while Zampa’s numbers of 2 for 7 from two overs shone like a beacon for the stars after cashing 3 for 115

The field of heat was great with two jaw-dropping catches and an extraordinary save of six The Stars chose to stick with their normal opening pair of Fletcher and Stoinis, taking 36 of the first four overs even so, they were miles behind the required Run rate back as Fletcher battled for a run-a-ball The misery ended when he fell on a brilliant team effort in the fifth Fletcher tossed Mujeeb ur Rahman straight to the ground, Mark Steketee took the hook, reached over it with one foot Rope and then flicked it to Xavier Bartlett as he fell over in the next game, Gregory held on to a difficult, towering sky ball in the deep back space to remove Nicholas Pooran, who had hit 17 balls out of five
