It means the second-placed Heat will be without their two biggest weapons - McCullum and Chris Lynn, who is with the Australian ODI side - for Tuesday's crucial game against the Melbourne Stars. However, after reviewing the match, the Heat determined there were no grounds for an appeal and accepted the penalty. Joe Burns will step in as captain while McCullum serves his ban, which was handed down today for a second breach of the playing conditions this season.
