6.15pm Thanks Varun. Blimey, what just happened? Will bring you the presentations shortly

Silva: "I had been complaining on Cricinfo that this BBL has been disappointing with no tight finishes...the finals was turning out to be the same story but WOW...that finish made up for all of my disappointment!"

Man of the Match is Dan Christian. He's done it again, another tournament in the bag. "I wasn't expecting that to be honest, an awesome game from everyone. The bowlers stuck to it all the way. I was lucky to parachute in at the end. This is right up there, let's say it's the best one! We spend a lot of time together, a great bunch of blokes."

Glenn Maxwell "Extremely proud, we played some great cricket thus tournament. To fall short at the end is disappointing. Hopefully win it next year. Great support, they've been brilliant for us. Congratulations to Renegades, we've had some great tussles. To my boys, I've asked a lot of you and you've delivered in spades."

Aaron Finch "It's exciting, very special. Our boys were fantastic. I didn't do a hell of a lot to be fair, it was the guys who executed with bat and ball. We knew batting first it was going to be so hard to chase any total, you can defend anything. We stuck to our strengths and you just need one little opening, especially in a final with the pressure on."

Sooryanarayanan: "Renegades had just three half-centuries to boast of all season. Yet another proof that a solid bowling attack will win you T20 tournaments. Congratulations to Aaron Finch and Co. Savour the moment."

As Aaron Finch collects the BBL trophy we will wrap our live coverage up there. We'll have much more on the site over the next few hours. Thanks for joining us throughout the tournament - it was a long one, but it ended in extraordinary fashion. From all of us it's goodbye and thanks for joining us.

6:09pm A maiden title for Renegades! Boy have they snatched the most unlikely result here. Superb, simply superb. Comebacks and fighting till the end in the second half of both innings. They've conceded only 60 in the last ten overs and taken seven wickets. Unreal. Helped along by some woeful shot selection, but there was still some work to be done, and they did it. Ben Dunk and Stoinis put on a well-paced 93 for the opening wicket, but the rest of the line-up was reckless. And it has costed them a title. Tremain, Boyce, and Gurney with the squeezing, and Christian playing a superb supporting role too. What an evening it's been. Here is Gnasher to close it off for us.

Christian to Zampa, no run, inside edge onto toe and that is it for the Stars. Another loss in a final. Slower ball from Christian, swings across the line and can't do more than get this pitch side

Christian to Bird, 1 run, full outside off, shuffles and slugs along the floor to long-on's right. Crowd erupts. Mathematically, this is the title for Renegades

Sai: "There is no boundary after the first wicket... Wow... That got them into the pressure "

Christian to Bird, 2 runs, offcutter, a low full toss outside off. Walks into it and chucks the bat at it. Thick inside edge to deep midwicket's right

Christian to Zampa, 1 run, slower ball, overpitched outside off. Stays leg side of it and slices it over extra cover

Mayurdan Gadhav: "Superb captaincy from Finch! A great change of bowling. He could not contribute by bat due to bad luck but definitely he has delivered by great change of bowling."
