Renegades ease to five-wicket win

The appearance of Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels created a great buzz and expectation around the cavernous ANZ Stadium but the match was as lacklustre as the crowd, as the Renegades relegated the Thunder to their second loss

Match Centre

That completes a comfortable 5 wicket win for the Renegades who remain unbeaten in the BBL 12 Captain Finchy is rapt with his team's performance with the ball. He heaps praise on most of his chargers and admits they didn't have to take too many risks in chasing down 117 to win. The Renegades spin attack did the damage with O'Brien (3-15), Murali (2-16) and Samuels 1-28, the difference. If it wasn't for Chris Tremain's explosive unbeaten 37 off just 23 balls, the Thunder could well have be rolled for less than three figures. Captain Finch was solid again for the visitors, striking 31 off 33 deliveries, while Ben Rohrer's 27 off 20 was also rather easy on the eye. The last mention must go to Dirk Nannes' spell of bowling (1-20 off 4) which Finch suggested was one of the toughest short spells he'd ever faced. Aaron O'Brien nabs the Man of the Match award for his three wickets which stymied the Thunder's batting effort and ensured there would be an early finish to the evening. On behalf of the crew here at Cricinfo, thanks for joining us this evening. We look forward to bringing you live coverage of tomorrow night's game between the Melbourne Stars and the Hobart Hurricanes.
