Adelaide Strikers reclaimed top spot in the Big Bash table as they beat Brisbane Heat by eight wickets at the Gabba.
Adil Rashid continued his impressive form for the Strikers in BBL05, taking 2-17 - to become the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 12 - as the Heat managed 175-6 from their 20 overs.
Mahela Jayawardene then earned man-of-the-match honours, scoring 53 from 30 balls, one of three Strikers batsmen to hit fifty, along with Tim Ludeman (57no off 49) and Travis Head (50 off 25), as they cruised to an eight-wicket win with eight balls to spare.
The Strikers chose to bowl first after winning the toss, and made an immediate breakthrough, as Lendl Simmons fell for a two-ball duck - the third time he has failed to score for the Heat in BBL05.
Form batsman Chris Lynn struck 34 from 25 balls, putting on 52 for the second wicket with Jimmy Peirson - who top-scored with 51 from 36 - as the Heat recovered from the early blow.
But Rashid removed Lynn, and although further useful support came from Nathan Reardon (40no off 32), the home side's innings stuttered as Peirson fell in the 14th over.
Rashid bowled Ben Cutting (16 off 13) with a brilliantly disguised googly, and Ben Laughlin picked up Jason Floros cheaply as the Heat slipped to 154-6 in the penultimate over.
A handy four-ball cameo from James Hopes (14no) in the final over, seeing him strike three fours, helped the hosts to a competitive total, or so they thought.
Jayawardene smashed five fours and three sixes to get the Strikers off to flier, before departing in the 10th over shortly after reaching fifty, having been troubled by an injury to his quad during his innings.
It didn't deflate the Strikers innings though, as Head smashed four sixes and a four in his half century, to further inflate the scoring rate.
Although Head fell in the 17th over, Ludeman and captain Brad Hodge (14 off 8) comfortably saw the side home, and to the top of the BBL05 table. The Heat stay bottom, and no longer have any hope of earning a semi-final spot.
