Blizzard blasts Hurricanes to victory

22 Sep 2014

I (43)

Aiden Blizzard kept the Hobart Hurricanes' Champions League campaign alive overnight with a match-winning 78no (48) against the Cape Cobras.

Needing 44 from the last three overs, the Tasmanian power-hitter let loose on Vernon Philander, blasting 19 off the five four balls of the 18th over, before a Jonathon Wells' four pulled Hobart within 20 runs of victory with 12 balls to spare.

Three more sixes in the following over, including two from Blizzard, was enough to close out the run chase with still six balls in hand.

Earlier, the Cobras posted 6-184 with a well-rounded batting display right down their order. Ben Laughlin (2-31) was the best of the Hurricanes bowlers.
