full toss glanced fine and the Renegades break a seven-game losing streak!
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.
through Carey this time! Another yorker down leg, off pad again and Carey fumbles, it runs past him and they pinch two. They check upstairs for the run out. Fraser-McGurk didn't ground his bat but he got his foot in!
Carey saves four! Full down leg, it comes off the pad and it was going for four fine but Carey dives with the one hand and saves it. They run a leg bye
Long on back, midwicket up
Ritesh: "Tie anyone...??"
short ball, 139kph, he swings out of his shoes and misses!
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
full on leg, he drives with control to long on
Aryan: "Agar with the last over or Conway? " Agar
140kph full and straight, he drives flat and straight over the bowler and Fraser-McGurk pinches two running well on the throw
carved over cover! Ridiculous skill! Full on off, nearly a worker, he cleared the front leg and got under it to slice it with power over cover! Sensational
crushed straight of long on! Long on is wide, it is an attempted yorker but it's a low full toss and Nabi nailed it straight!
yorker at middle, he digs it out back to Siddle
slower ball, he steps inside the line and chips a ramp just past Conway at short fine! Conway gets in a tangle sliding in the chase and they get three
full on leg, he's sitting back and driving to long on. Just one
Siddle to bowl the 19th. Agar will finish.
Malli: "This is called match going down to the wire"
full toss outside off, he completely mishits it to long off for a couple
he charged early and Briggs fired wise, he had to reach out to get bat on it
drifting in, yorker length, he squeezes it out to midwicket
half a chance to Briggs! Low full toss clubbed back at him, barely a chance really, but a little prevented four
shapes for the reverse, it's a full toss outside off and it gets through Carey for a bye
drifting into leg, he tries to launch over long on, it comes off a thick inside edge behind square
Briggs to bowl his last
shorter outside off, he cuts with class to deep point
shorter leg break, he's back to pull, mistimes it to midwicket
good length leg break, he adjusts and pushes it to cover
