Big Bash League, Melbourne Renegades v Sydney Sixers at Melbourne (Docklands), Jan 2, 2012
Melbourne Renegades won by 8 wickets (with 14 balls remaining)
2 January 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Nannes to Bravo, OUT, there's the first wicket! Good length ball on the middle stump and straightening. Bravo is playing for the movement and is beaten. The ball hits the middle stump and Bravo has to go back to the hut

DJ Bravo b Nannes 7 (7m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

Sydney Sixers 10/1   MJ Lumb 0* (2b)   DP Nannes 1-0-4-1

Shahid Afridi to Maddinson, OUT, wicket! Afridi sees Maddinson advancing down the track and bowls a fuller ball. Maddinson misses the intended cover drive with his backfoot in the air. Manou is quick to whip the bails off after collecting the ball. Maddinson fails to convert the start, yet again

NJ Maddinson st †Manou b Shahid Afridi 29 (21m 21b 5x4 0x6) SR: 138.09

Sydney Sixers 56/2   MJ Lumb 15* (16b 2x4)   Shahid Afridi 0.5-0-6-1

Maxwell to Lumb, OUT, how well has Maxwell bowled. He notices that Lumb has moved across before the ball is bowled. He slips a faster, fuller delivery on the middle stump. Lumb tries to compensate by looking to sweep. He misses and Maxwell strikes

MJ Lumb b Maxwell 25 (36m 22b 4x4 0x6) SR: 113.63

Sydney Sixers 69/3   SPD Smith 3* (4b)   GJ Maxwell 3.3-0-18-1

Harwood to Smith, OUT, and he does what he did so well against Sydney Thunder. Bowling at the death. Smith looks to go after the off cutter and manages only an inside edge that crashes into the leg stump. A good beginning to the new spell for Harwood

SPD Smith b Harwood 25 (34m 23b 0x4 1x6) SR: 108.69

Sydney Sixers 132/4   MC Henriques 40* (27b 3x4 1x6)   SM Harwood 1.1-0-10-1

Harwood to Rohrer, OUT, Harwood is among the wickets again! He digs it in short on the off stump. Rohrer stays rooted to the crease and pulls it to deep midwicket. Nannes doesn't move an inch from his fielding position at deep midwicket and takes the catch easily

BJ Rohrer c Nannes b Harwood 2 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sydney Sixers 134/5   MC Henriques 40* (27b 3x4 1x6)   SM Harwood 1.3-0-12-2

Nannes to Henriques, OUT, the variety that Nannes has, is amazing. This time he gets the ball to skid from the surface and forces Henriques to go for the shot early. As he is into the stroke early, Henriques gets an outside edge back to the keeper. Clever variation in pace by Nannes in this over

MC Henriques c †Manou b Nannes 41 (35m 30b 3x4 1x6) SR: 136.66

Sydney Sixers 138/6   PM Nevill 2* (3b)   DP Nannes 3.3-0-27-2
