Well bowled Lee. Sixers won by 2 runs. Disappointment for Renegades as they fought hard through out the innings. Meanwhile in the chase, all top five got the start but no one seized on the opportunity. On the other hand Sixers bowled beautifully and well backed up by some serious ground fielding. Moises Henriques was the star of the show as he bagged a wicket and trashed 55 runs. Undoubtedly he has been named Man of the Match for his match winning contribution.

That's it from here. Do catch us for the next game. Till then take-care, cheers!!
