FRANKSTON Peninsula Heat have just 25 runs to play with as they strive to defeat Melbourne in a interesting Premier Cricket clash at the Albert Ground.
The Heat were bowled out for 125 but have given the fancied Melbourne something to worry about as they grabbed six wickets to leave the Demons reeling at 6-101.
But with just 25 runs needed for victory, Melbourne will fancy itself as favourite.
Talented all-rounder Brenton McDonald (11no) and Jack Paynter (4no) are the batsmen at the crease for the Demons.
Scott Boland (3-30) was the chief destroyer for the Heat while Matt Chasemore, James Miller and Jack Benbow also took a wicket each.
Earlier in the day Paynter ripped through the Heat's top order, including the prized wickets of Matt Lineker and Chasemore, to finish with 5-20 from 12.5 overs.
