10.5 to AJ Finch, flighted delivery on the middle stump. Looks to defend it and is beaten by the straighter delivery. The ball hits the pad and crashes on to the middle stump. 86/2

17.3 to BR Dunk, Dunk looks to drive and only manages to scoop it in the air. Sheridan, the substitute, runs back a few yards from cover and takes the catch. 119/4
19.6 to SA Abbott, fuller ball on the off stump. A full-toss, rather. Abbott looks to scoop it and misses. The ball hits the off stump and that's the win for Renegades. 134/7

7.2 to TD Cruickshank, finally Renegades have a wicket. Cruickshank comes down the track and lofts the ball to long-on where Reardon has to run back a few yards to take the catch. If he had taken two more steps backwards, it would have been a six. 59/1
14.4 to UT Khawaja, Reardon gets his second catch of the day as he runs to his right and takes a good one as Khawaja came down the track and lofted that ball. 101/2
