Melbourne Renegades178/4(19.5 overs)

Thanks for your company tonight. The Sydney Thunder play the Perth Scorchers tomorrow night. Hope you can join us then.

The Renegades are still last on the table but they claim all four points. The Strikers missed a chance to consolidate a top three spot.

Mohammad Nabi is Player of the Match for his 71 not out. A superb innings.

Nabi: "I didn't perform well in the last four or five games. The team really needed me and I did something good for my team. So I'm pleased."

The Renegades win by six wickets with a ball to spare. What a partnership between Mohammad Nabi and Jake Fraser-McGurk. Nabi produced one of his finest BBL performances. He was a cut above finding the boundary at will against a good attack. Fraser-McGurk showed great composure to go with him. The Strikers will rue their batting performance. They left at least 20 out there.

Joe M: "Why are long-on and long-off still so wide for Nabi? He's scored a few boundaries very straight, pretty sure Carey's captaincy has lost Strikers this game" Shorter boundaries are square in Adelaide. It's such a tough hit straight. Nabi too good so far
