10.27pm And that brings us to the end of our coverage for this match. Hope you've enjoyed it. Keep tuning in, keep sending in your comments. Until next time, goodbye!

Chris Tremain is the Man of the Match. "We decided to open up with spin," he says. "I've never seen a more nervous man than Tom Cooper when he knew he was going to open the bowling, but they did their job well, and set it up well for us. The mood is good, we're enjoying playing cricket together. Haven't even thought about [World T20]. Didn't even know it was in India."

10.22pm Good win for the Renegades, set up by that blazing opening stand between Gayle and Finch, and an outstandingly economical spell from Chris Tremain before that. Second win of the season for them, they move a couple of rungs up the table. Good game for their net run rate too.

Rainbird to White, FOUR runs, and there's the win. A bit of width, quite full, and White finishes with a thumping drive to the cover boundary
Rainbird to Cooper, 1 run, looks to skip across his stumps and play the scoop. Rainbird follows him and it rolls away into the off side instead, off the back of his bat maybe
Rainbird to Cooper, no run, length ball outside off, the angle beats the bat as Cooper looks to force it away through the off side, no footwork

Two runs to get. Here's Tom Cooper.

Rainbird to Bravo, OUT, and Rainbird gets another. Wide length ball, Bravo gets a faint nick to the keeper looking to clear his front leg and slog that over the top. Was nowhere near him, not the ball to be attempting that shot off

Rainbird to White, 1 run, back of a length on off stump, lets it come on and dabs it softly behind the wicket. They pick up a single by the time the keeper runs to his right to stop it
Rainbird to White, 2 runs, back of a length on off stump, punched away through the covers
