10.28pm Thoroughly dominant performance from Strikers. Renegades lost Harvey early, and from there it was a procession. Strikers never looked back after striking early. Each of their bowlers came to the party. It wasn't as much of a team effort with the bat but Weatherald made up for it brilliantly, before Rashid Khan laid violent finishing touches to shore them up. It proved 32 too many. Strikers rise to third position.

That will be all we have for you from this game then. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. Thanks for your comments and company. Cheers!
