That's all from our coverage today. Thanks for joining. We'll catch you soon! Good night.

10:21pm A smart chase from the Renegades after doing well to restrict Heat to just 132. It was by no means a pitch for strokemaking and the experience of Cameron White and Tom Cooper has guided this chase well. They lost early wickets, but Shadab Khan was the man they needed to see off. After that, it was autopilot, nudging it around and picking up doubles on a big ground. Cooper didn't look comfortable, trying to muscle them early on before figuring the surface out and relying on deft strokes. an 89-run stand between him and White to clinch two more points and climb to the top of the table.

Cutting to White, OUT

length ball at off stump, opens his body up to try and launch this over midwicket on the rise, but he ends up slicing it high - almost kissing the roof - and straight out to long-off who has a comfortable catch. A well-paced innings from White comes to a close, with the victory in sight

superbly played. It's full and down leg, and he brings the bat under it quickly to chip it over short fine with what was supposed to originally be a paddle sweep
