Tye to Rohrer, OUT, big break through!! Fuller on the pads, Rohrer on the charge misses the ball completely as it thuds full on his boots and the umpire gives him out. Was it slipping down the leg? Rohrer thinks so.

Tremain to Harris, OUT, what has happened there? Saw him coming and opts to bowl a slower delivery on off stump as the ball ballooned up after pitching and took on his glove, Hussey at covers comes in and takes a good catch. Harris looks baffled and rightly so!

Melbourne Renegades 99/9   NJ Rimmington 3* (4b)   GS Sandhu 3.4-0-20-3


Nannes to Rimmington, OUT, and another run out!! Length ball on off stump and pushed to point as they scampered for a suicidal run. Dilshan was quick onto the ball, picks up and cracks at the bowlers end. That's it, Rimmington was way behind the mark as they failed to complete the quota of 20 overs.

NJ Rimmington run out 8 (13m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Melbourne Renegades 104/10   M Muralitharan 0* (0b)   DP Nannes 3.3-0-27-1
