full on leg stump, steps out and drives along the floor to long-on
Mitchell Marsh if the Man of the Match.
9:22pm Scorchers get points on the board. A win by 11 runs - they were superb at the end in both innings. Mitch Marsh's cameo gave them this 11-run cushion, and some brilliant bowling by Fawad Ahmed, complemented by Chris Jordan's all-round heroics, meant that Renegades were just about kept at bay in the end. They struggled in the middle overs after a strong start, but Shaun Marsh and Beau Webster did nicely to pull them back into the game. In the end, the little lulls in their day added up just enough for a loss. That's no points in two games for them. Thanks for joining us and see you soon.
full at middle stump, launched uppishly to long-on's left and he won't be able to stop that
outside edge as he looks to ramp. Full ball outside off, flies past short third man as he falls to the floor
full at middle stump, steps out and drills to long-on's right
full at off stump, charges down and drives firmly past the bowler. Long-off sprints to his right, puts in a slide and parries this back in for long-on. His right knee was briefly in contact with the rope as he touched the ball, but he's kept is safe by one frame, deems third umpire
yorker just outside off from around the wicket. Looks to drive, beaten
Mike T: "Catches win matches...and maybe some cash or a car if that's on offer this year. Surely Jordan doesn't get beaten after that screamer."
Great catch, great 19th over, great spell. Jordan has been the superstar these last 8 minutes or so. Renegades need 27 to win now and Joel Paris will bowl the last over.
overpitched at off stump. Makes room and scoops this over mid-off
yorker length wide outside off, steps out and jams it to mid-off
length outside off, gets low and looks to sweep. Beaten
yorker outside off, walks at it but can't do more than pick out sweeper cover to his right. Throw comes in on the bounce as he takes the second and just makes it, confirms the replay
yorker length outside off. Jammed to extra cover's right. Marsh fumbles as he attempts to throw and gives away a second
Stephen jones: "In all my years following cricket 1 thing I have learnt is that if you hit the ball towards Chris Jordan you might as well start making your way from the field , not many better fielders around."
taken at long-on. Low full toss on leg stump, looks to go straight but that's off the low part of the bat. Taken easily at long-on, well in from the boundary
Jordan with the ball now
Haque: "Wow...turnaround over it's all over."
What an over. Two wickets, and two of the biggest ones, really. Scorchers got 37 in the last two overs. Renegades need 36.
length and sliding in at the stumps. Hurriedly tapped to deep square's left
no way Jordan! Wow! That is stunning, just unreal. Ridiculous. It's a full flat ball at the stumps. He clears the front leg for the slog but the drift means it comes off the inside half of the bat. It's flat and powerful and dipping to long-on's right, but Jordan sprints and flies to his right, reaching out, holding on, and then casually sliding back up. Wow.
length and sliding outside off. Steps out but is forced to tap that down the pitch after being beaten in flight
googly at a length on leg stump. Backs away and mistimes a punch to extra cover
length at leg stump, flicked to deep square's right
Dan Christian's the new man in
taken at long-off. Bold call to go to the spinner, especially one who spins the ball into the in-form left-hander. Ahmed too is brave enough to toss the ball up and that prompts Marsh to skip down the track, inadvertently getting too close to the ball. That reduces the power he can put on the ball and the rest is pretty much straightforward for Chris Jordan
