Hobart Hurricanes ended 2020 with a narrow 1-run victory against Brisbane Heat during a thriller played at the Gabba. The 5-wicket haul by Mujeeb Ur Rahman troubled Hurricanes big time who got bowled out for 150 in 19.4 overs. Hurricanes came strongly with the ball as they picked three wickets inside the first three overs. However, Heat kept hanging around in the chase despite losing wickets regularly. James Bazley smashed an unbeaten 31-ball 49 to keep the home team on top of the chase but a brilliant last over by Scott Boland sealed a win for the Hurricanes.
