9.1 115 kph, Cutting goes for the cutter first up and breaks the partnership. Good length, angling across from off stump, he wants to turn this into the leg side, but only gets a leading edge that's taken easily at point. The ball sat in the pitch there. 106/1
    13.2 he's got him! 114 kph, slower ball. Also a length ball that might've gone 100 metres at the midwicket boundary if he'd got some pace on it. There's no pace though, and he drags it straight to deep midwicket 137/2
    16.3 gone! Good length on off stump, steps out and is beaten in flight comprehensively. Throws an unceremonious swipe at it and gets nowhere near it. Keeper catches it just above off stump and the bails are off 162/4
    15.3 back of a length on off stump, goes for the pull and gets it way up in the sky, but there's no distance. It hangs there for a while, Steketee looks at it all the way through as he runs in from fine leg and is well balanced as he grabs it low in front of him with a semi-dive 157/3
    not out
    18.4 aaaand that's the end. Another slower ball in his hitting arc, he hits it, but too early. The bat turns in his hand and goes nice and slowly to McCullum at long-off 176/5

    11.1 Toe-ends a catch to wide long-on. 101ks cutter outside off, heaves in the air and drags a catch to Cooper. Baz inspects the toe-end as he trudges off. He charged to 50 off 18 balls, he managed only 14 off his last 22 balls 119/3
    1.1 Pattinson strikes with his first ball. Short of a length on off, extra pace of Pattinson - 143ks. Peirson shapes to pull and top-edges it high into the Brisbane sky. It hangs in there and drops down into the gloves of debutant keeper Harriott behind the stumps. Keeps his head and settles under the skier 14/1
    5.4 picks out the only man at the leg-side boundary. Slower cutter outside off, Heazlett walks across off and slogs it in the air. Can't manufacture his own pace, and holes out to deep square leg, 15 metres inside the rope 85/2
    12.4 big appeal for lbw, and the finger goes up. Hogg celebrates animatedly with multiple fist pumps. Pushed through, skids off the surface, Ross plays across the line and is pinned in front of middle and leg. It was probably hitting leg 127/4
    19.3 very full and outside off, miscued to long-off running to his left. Smart catch from Perera. Burns swings hard, does not middle it. Ends up slicing the ball off the toe end to the man in the deep. Goes for the glory hit and holes out 195/8
    17.4 Holes out to Perera at long-off. Short of a length and outside off, Cutting swings it flat and hard to Perera in the deep. Key wicket for Renegades 172/5
    18.1 pushed through shorter and quicker, bounces up outside off. Marnus goes low for a slog-sweep. Ends up top-edging a catch to deep midwicket 174/6
    18.4 skids on outside off, Wildermuth goes for a big slog and only top-edges the ball in the air. The keeper calls for it and settles under the skier near the silly-point region 177/7
    19.4 very full and outside off, drills a drive to Finch at wide mid-off. Buchanan sets off for the single. Finch swoops down on the ball and spears a flat throw to the bowler, who keeps his head, backs-up, and swipes the bails off to catch him short 196/9
    not out
    19.5 what a bizarre finish! Off-side wide, and Swepson is run-out at the non-striker's end. The Renegades stay alive.... just. Very full and wide outside off, near yorker, but past the tram-line again. Steketee and Swepson look to scamper across for the bye. But there's a mix-up, under pressure. Harriott the debutant keeper, though, keeps his head and throws it to the bowler, who runs back up to the stumps and catches Swepson short. Drama, drama, drama in Brisbane, and the hosts finish at the wrong end of it 198/10
