Full commentary

The early wickets set the Renegades back. Rohrer did try to set the ball rolling with that 24 run over off Behrendorff and his partnership with Cooper. Cooper tried to get too aggressive and paid with his wicket.

Thomas did his bit in his first spell by moving the ball well. If we discount the 24 runs of his third over, Behrendorff has had a good debut. Finch, on air, feels that his final over in the Scorchers innings turned the tide their way and refuses to blame the batsmen on what was a good batting surface

Predictably, Shaun Marsh, for his batting heroics, has been awarded with the Man of the match award.

That's it from all of us here and do join us tomorrow for the Sydney derby

Thomas to O'Brien, 2 runs
short ball outside the off stump. O'Brien cuts it past the first slip. Beer makes the save at third-man. Good to see such effort when they know the match has been sealed

w
Thomas to Rimmington, OUT
fuller ball on the middle stump. Slower ball. Rimmington is beaten by the lack of pace, the reason why he got the height and not the distance. North doesn't need to make a lot of effort to take that catch at cover
