Full commentary

11.00pm Wonderful chase from Melbourne Renegades, hunting down 174 with ease in the end. Bravo and White, in particular, aced that chase and paced it to near perfection. In the end, Thunder just did no possess enough firepower to be able to prevent Renegades' power-packed batting from gunning that target down. This win throws the race for the Playoffs wide open as well.

Cameron White is the Man of the Match: "More enjoyable now. Back end of our bowling was probably the difference. I was plumb lbw but that's the way it goes. Sometimes it goes for you. Ill take it any day of the week."

19.2

Watson to Nevill, FOUR runs

that will be it. The game is Renegades'. Full on off, Nevill backs away and belts the ball back over Watson and to the long-off boundary

Hussey has to take a risk and bring a few more inside the circle

James: "Dwayne Bravo has had an excellent all round game. Good final over, then some excellent batting."

Russell to White, OUT

good catch from Rohrer. White, this time, looks to go for a swipe to finish the game but the ball takes the top edge and spoons up. Rohrer keeps his eyes on it at all times and holds onto a swirler. Great catch that.

Russell to Beaton, (no ball)

no ball signalled. Short delivery outside off, Beaton sways out of the line. Freehit coming up. That ball lobbed over Beaton's head. He may have overstepped though

Russell to Dwayne Bravo, OUT

Russell responds well but it may be too little, too late. Slower ball on leg, Bravo gets a thick top edge which lobs up and Russell races in front to take a good low catch. Not yet done
