9.48pm Handshakes all around, but Strikers would think they've let this game slip. From 80 for 5, Renegades had no business winning this game, but the Christian-Nabi partnership saw off Rashid Khan, and then tore into the other Adelaide bowlers. Renegades inflict revenge after last season's semi-final loss, and now leapfrog right into pole position on the BBL points table. That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo for today. See you tomorrow for more Big Bash cricket.

Sarthak: "What a shame..none of the batsmen got 50..poor planning..hehe"

Sooryanarayanan: "Mohammad Nabi showed why he is the most underrated all-rounder in T20 cricket today while Christian told some of the IPL franchises that they missed a trick in not picking him up."

Laughlin to Mohammad Nabi, FOUR runs, there it is! A hug between Nabi and Christian signifies what this means to them. Back of a length outside off, and Nabi slices a cut from near his body, and it has enough power to go into the third-man boundary. Renegades win by five wickets

Just three needed for Renegades.

END OF OVER:

Stanlake to Christian, FOUR runs, full on off stump, and this has been slogged towards midwicket! Lands just between midwicket and long-on, and goes into the boundary on the bounce. Stanlake concedes 20
18.5
6
Stanlake to Christian, SIX runs, check-drive over long off! Again full outside off, and the pace only helps Christian. Keeps his back leg rooted on the ground and transfers his energy forward as he pulverises a six over the bowler's head

Renegades need 13 off eight

Stanlake to Christian, no run, slower ball, full and wide outside off, and Christian completely misses the shot! Looks to smack the leather off this delivery, but he was through his shot way too early
18.3
0
Stanlake to Christian, no run, Short! And Christian can't pull this away. Extra pace forces him to play the shot late, and Carey takes a sharp take from near his face. Could've easily been top-edged over the keeper though

This is Renegades' best-ever sixth-wicket stand

18.2
6
Stanlake to Christian, SIX runs, that's outta here! Lands in the slot on off stump, and Christian simply clears his front leg, and then lets his biceps do the rest. Absolutely clattered over deep midwicket, and we need a new ball!

Stanlake to Christian, 4 leg byes, unlucky for Stanlake! Pinpoint yorker on leg stump, but the ball hits the heel of his boot and flies away into the fine-leg boundary! oooh, this is bad for Strikers

Stanlake for his final over

END OF OVER:
18 | 10 Runs | MR: 152/5 (23 runs required from 12 balls, RR: 8.44, RRR: 11.50)

2
Laughlin to Mohammad Nabi, 2 runs, low full toss on middle, and Nabi hits this over to deep midwicket. Off the bat's toe end, and that allows them to take the second run
17.5
2
Laughlin to Mohammad Nabi, 2 runs, slower ball, but overpitched on middle stump. He swings across the line, and muscles a drive to wide long-on
17.4
1
Laughlin to Christian, 1 run, full and wide outside off, and he mistimes a square drive to deep extra cover once again
17.3
4
Laughlin to Christian, FOUR runs, good length outside off, and he plays a square cut very hard! Ball races away to the boundary, and deep extra's sliding effort can't stop it off either
17.2
1
Laughlin to Mohammad Nabi, 1 run, yorker on leg stump, but Nabi natmegs this between his legs to deep backward square. A well-directed yorker from the experienced Laughlin
17.1
0
Laughlin to Mohammad Nabi, no run, good length outside off, and the slower ball takes some extra bounce. Looks to muscle a cut shot over point, but he misses it completely

Final three overs. Renegades need 11 per over

Rashid Khan to Christian, no run, tossed up just outside off, and pushed to cover. Christian wants the single, but there's none there

Rashid and Nabi sharing a light moment

Rashid Khan to Christian, 1 run, length ball on off, and spinning into his body. Nudged away to square leg for a walking single
