Luke Pomersbach stars as Brisbane Heat reached semi finals after crushing win against Hurricanes

A vicious onslaught from Luke Pomersbach has powered Brisbane Heat qualify for  the semi finals of the KFC T20 Big Bash League.

Pomersbach cracked the fastest 50 of the contest as the Brisbane Heat thrash  Hobart Hurricanes by eight wickets to set up a date with Melbourne Renegades at Etihad Stadium on Tuesday.
Chasing the Hobart Hurricanes  below par 3 for 150, the Brisbane Heat made a mockery of Hobart's battle with what had appeared a sticky Bellerive pitch to reach the target in just 14.1 overs.

Luke Pomersbach's 50 came from just 24 balls and his 82 off  42 included with 13 fours and two sixes. The Brisbane Heat finish the regular season equal on eight points with the Hobart Hurricanes and Adelaide Strikers but with a greater net run rate. 

Fast Bowler  Doug Bollinger (1 for 41) went for 27 from his 1st  two and Jason Krejza wasn't sighted again after taking 0-31 from his first two. Peter Forrest (18 off 11) was caught in the deep off Bollinger   but the onslaught continued and in form bowler  Ben Laughlin was dispatched for 20 from his 1st  over.

Luke Pomersbach and Joe Burns unbeaten 41 runs  from 27  put on 107 from 55 balls to demolish the Hobart Hurricanes finals hopes. Hobart Hurricanes  needed a late grow from Jonathan Wells (40 off  24) and Englishman Owais Shah (32 off  28) to make their score competitive.

The Hobart Hurricanes  had hurt their way to 3 for 84 before Wells and Shah put on 66 runs  from 42 deliveries. The Hobart Hurricanes managed just a one  six, hit by Ricky Ponting (17 off  16), with miserly Heat, skipper James Hopes bowling a tight 1 for 18 from his four overs while Dan Christian grabed  2 for 32.
