Burns – the Heat’s top scorer – hit 52 of 62 balls, including four fours and two sixs, when the Heat was won by five wickets

His appearance came at a pivotal time for the Heat, who have now won three of their last four since Christmas after losing Max Bryant and X-Factor Sub and Captain Chris Lynn

Lynn hit 30 – including two sixs – when he came back from a hamstring injury

However, the platform for this victory was really Brisbane’s work with the ball in hand

They limited the thunder to 174/8

after a master class by the Afghan spin sensation Mujeeb Ur Rahman

The first was perhaps the most notable, a catch by the formidable Usman Khawaja after only two balls, in which the 19-year-old Mujeeb claimed him for a duck with a short leg

Captain Callum Ferguson then joined Alex Hales on the wicket and began to find a rhythm – and the limit – as the thunder started a fight

The right-handers combined made a second wicket score of 77, with Hales hitting three fours and three sixes

However, Hales’ innings ended on Aug.after being caught backwards bowling by Mujeeb The Import Spinner struck again shortly thereafter, and Ferguson caught 35 to leave Thunder 3/93 before Ollie Davies was soon fired by Mark Steketee

Mujeeb caused more chaos when Sam Billings and Daniel Sams mixed up their call for a short single and the Englishman on 24 expired

It wasn’t long before the Afghani got involved again and caught Sams on a Lewis Gregory shipment

The Heat, who are now slowly showing a constancy other than inconsistency, absolutely wanted to win and welcomed the inspiring skipper Lynn back

He was brought into play in the middle of the Thunder innings, replacing spinner Matthew Kuhnemann

Lynn had an impressive opening partnership of 37 with Bryant, 15, until he was caught before the captain followed him to the stands

When the game slipped from them for a moment, Brisbane found solace in the dependable position of Denly and Joe Burns

After Denly fell – Gregory attacked a golden duck immediately afterwards – Jimmy Peirson (15) came in to stabilize the ship

Burns soon raised his 50, but with only nine balls left, he was caught by Khawaja

However,

James Bazley came into play to score a decisive four and take a decisive Heat win
