Mignon du Preez stepped out to Alex Hartley a couple of times to pick a six and a four and wrapped up the chase with consecutive boundaries off Annabel Sutherland, with 18 balls to spare. Fire, therefore, stand eliminated while Rockets (+0.101) who finished just ahead of Birmingham Phoenix (+0.008) on NRR will now have to wait to discover their fate after their clash against London Spirit on Tuesday.
