    Thanks!

    I tried searching through cricinfo but couldn't get the filters how I wanted.

    I couldn't either, but I was curious enough to get it to bring up all 116 ten-wicket victories and open 116 tabs to check them one by one!

    I suspect there might be lower high scores in matches won by an innings but I didn't check.

    The end of an era in NZ cricket. Brendon (Baz) McCullum has hung up his boots. Typically, he ended with a fast 50 in a T20 for Brisbane Heat. I won't forget his triple centuries or 6's. And I went to high school with his dad, Stu.

    Isn't he playing the last game? Bit of a lean series for him TBH.

    Brendon was rated as the best NZ captain ever in The Cricketer magazine, which is quite an honour, as NZ has had some decent captains. And Stu had a decent cricketing career himself.

    True. And Brendon has one T20 game to go - Friday night is his last one (any form of officially organised cricket) - for the Heat.

    Woah what a reply, wish I'd been there for that one!
    That's made a massive boost their NRR for the season. They could play finals, if the Stars don't win their last game.

    I'd like to see them make it, but they don't really deserve to be in the finals - they've been much too inconsistent.

    The Stars had a massive win, so that's the end for the Heat.

    82 (43) for Maxwell, in response the Sixers bowled out for just 74!

    I like this from cricinfo re Daniel Worrall - who was largely responsible for knocking Hobart out of the BBL tonight -

    Worrall's unusual angled run-up is reminiscent of that of Malcolm Marshall, although he cannot quite boast the same sheer pace and ferocity. Worrall says the run-up developed from his childhood days playing cricket in the backyard, where an inconvenient tree meant that a long approach to the crease prevented a straight-on run-up.

    Nice one! Yes, sad to see the Heat did not need Baz to bat (terrific score for no wickets) and then other results went against them and no semi for the Brisbane team. All Melboune final now too.

    Victims of the minor premier curse - they have failed to reach the final in 6 of last 7 years.
