CLT20: Brisbane Heat vs. Titans Scorecard, Recap and More

Mark Patterson@@MarkPattersonBRUK Staff WriterSeptember 24, 2013


The Titans pulled off a last-gasp comeback against the Brisbane Heat to win their first match of the Champions League T20 by just four runs in Mohali.

The Australian side looked to have done enough when they bowled out South Africa's Titans for just 123.

They were on track in the chase as well, needing just 10 runs from the last over with three wickets in hand.

But Marchant de Lange bowled a tight over, and the Heat's composure deserted them as two wickets came by way of run outs, and a third to the bowler.

The Heat have now lost twice and been all out on both occasions, while the Titans have recovered from a loss to Chennai Super Kings in their first game.

The victors will still be concerned by how quickly their batting fell away—three of the top four scored between 28 and 39, but the rest failed to reach double figures. A platform of 70-1 swiftly collapsed, with Matthew Gale (4-10) the most effective of the bowlers.

But their bowling was much improved from the side who could not defend 185 last time out, and they held their nerve when it mattered.
