Bowlers, late strikes help Renegades remain unbeaten

After struggling to score quickly for most of their chase, the Melbourne Renegades, through some late meaty blows led by Tom Cooper, defeated the Brisbane Heat by six wickets in the final over of the match

That is that then, an easy win in the end for the Renegades after it looked at one stage that they had made a hash of the chase. Cooper's 15-ball 29, followed by some sensible batting from Ben Rohrer helped the side past the target. Eight points for Renegades, which keeps them at the top of the points table and they continue to remain the only undefeated side in the competition.

The Heat will think they allowed the opposition to get out of jail on a sluggish track and they remain in the bottom half of the points table.

Roach to Rohrer, 1 run, attempted a yorker, but it is a full-toss and that is swiped away through wide mid-on, four wins in four games for the Renegades!

One needed now.

Perera to Sheridan, FOUR runs, not a great ball, it was wide outside the off, very full too and allows the batsman enough room to hit it anywhere square off the off side, he drives through wide mid-off and for a four!
Perera to Sheridan, 2 runs, fuller outside the off-stump and he is able to spank it away to wide long-off for a couple of runs
Perera to Sheridan, no run, pitched right up to the bat, outside the off-stump and pretty quick too, jams the bat down and plays it back to the bowler
Perera to Rohrer, 1 run, full-toss and swings it away to deep mid-wicket for a single
Perera to Rohrer, 2 runs, back to over the wicket, on the off stump and fuller, takes it as a full-toss, drives it down to long-on for a single, oh wait, they come back for the second too!
