Beth Mooney smashes Brisbane Heat to WBBL win over Hobart Hurricanes

The throw came in and struck him as he slid in to make ground before hitting the wicket.

Ryan Harris has been reprimanded by Cricket Australia in relation to tweets he sent in the aftermath of Brisbane Heat batsman Alex Ross's controversial obstructing the field dismissal on Wednesday night.

Law 37.1 says a batsman is out obstructing the field "if he wilfully attempts to obstruct or distract the fielding side by word or action".

"I don't really care what the rules are, to me it is one of those grey areas like the Mankad", McCullum said.

The Heat captain had long and animated discussions with Bailey after the match, both standing their ground on opposing sides of the argument.

"We saw the replays on the big screen and Ross was not run out but I didn't know he was judged out obstructing field until I got home and my wife Michelle told me", Fischer said.

"We debated the philosophical merits of one another's points", McCullum said of the pair's post-match debrief.

Zinke has said he based his decision on that appeal. "Interior should not be in the role of being an adversary". Zinke noted that, "It's better to produce energy here and never be held hostage by foreign enemy needs".

"Sometimes there are opportunities which are more important than the two points".

"He is quite entitled to do it differently".

Commentator and former Test star Gilchrist was convinced that Ross had not looked back at where the throw was coming from, and Waugh said it seemed obvious Ross's motivation was to avoid being hit rather than block the stumps. In time I feel he will regret not making another choice. I think he was running away from the ball.

"I was disappointed that the appeal was upheld, but I guess Hobart can take the points. Congrats to them the game was brilliant and I just thought they probably deserved to win", reported him as saying.

"But we need to understand clearly that mum, dad and the kids are interested in being entertained, not subjected to a forensic examination of the rule book".

Vettori said he'd like to hear from third umpire Simon Lightbody who made the call, but downplayed the suggestion there would be bad blood between the two teams when they meet again on Monday.
