New South Wales
The Renegades win by 12 runs. They defend 153 easily in the end. Shane Watson may regret opting to bowl first at the toss. The team batting first at Spotless Stadium has won 8 of the last 8. The Renegades choked the life out of the Thunder chase after Ferguson fell for an outstanding 52. The chase fell on the shoulders of Jason Sangha and he just couldn't find the rope when he needed to. Christian, Richardson and Gurney closed it out for the Renegades. They move to second on the BBL table. Harry Gurney is named Player of the Match for his 2 for 27. It could have been five without three dropped catches but he can only blame himself for two of them. That's it from Spotless. There is a double header tomorrow in the BBL. The Stars host the Strikers in Moe in country Victoria while the Sixers host the Hurricanes in Sydney. Join us then. Thanks for your company tonight.
full wide yorker, he misses! Great bowling display from the Renegades!
he flicks this up and over backward square for four! Too little too late but a great shot from outside off to whip this behind square over the man in the circle
107kph, slower ball on leg, he tries to whip over square leg, misses, it comes off pad and rolls away
James: "Where's Carlos Brathwaite when you need him?" Remember the name
126kph, full yorker at leg, he jams this out through mid on, again they run well to get back for two
135kph, yorker, speared at leg, he squeezes this out through midwicket, they run well for two but they need more
another sky ball dropped by Gurney! Sangha gets to 50! Slower ball, gets a top edge straight up, Gurney camps under it and spills it! Two on the night.
Gurney to finish. 23 to win
short slower ball, he pulls hard and flat to the long boundary at midwicket, Richardson is way back on the rope and they are able to run two

Must clear the rope here
120kph full outside off, he clears the right leg and slices this high and just out of reach of Finch running back from cover, they get two

117kph. slower ball, wide of off, he cuts hard to deep point, they hesitate for two but go eventually, the throw is wide and Lenton gets there with a dive
