Jason Holder
Sydney Sixers

What a great game of cricket. The Sixers go to the top of the BBL table with their 4th win of the season. The Renegades have now lost four in a row.

Thanks for your company tonight from the Gold Coast.

Sixers win by two wickets thanks to Jason Holder. He is rightly Man of the Match for his superb innings. Two last over victories in a row. Holder takes 16 off the last with a ball to spare. Sutherland got those last two overs horribly wrong.

Ashwin: "Jason Holder- Remember the name"

Sutherland to Holder, SIX runs

lofted into the stands at long off! Holder pulls it off! Sixers steal another one! Sutherland went full and wide again and it was a half volley, Holder was waiting and with the most beautiful swing of the bat he lofted it high and handsome into the stands

He can't go full and wide again now. Finch and Sutherland change the field. Mid off goes back. Cover is up

Sutherland to Holder, FOUR runs

over mid off again! Wide low full toss, same shot from Holder, he reaches out with one hand and miscues it over mid off and it runs away for four!

Sutherland to Holder, FOUR runs

lofted over straight mid off! Wide and full again with mid off up, he reached out and got it off the toe of the bat but got enough of it!

Sutherland to Holder, 2 runs

another wide yorker, he carves it to deep cover-point, they try for two, Rossouw just needed to deliver a decent throw but it was wide and Holder got home! He should have been run out by miles!

Sutherland to Holder, no run

Holder steps outside off, he fires a wide yorker and Holder tries to run to third man and missed! Well bowled.

Sutherland entrusted with the last. 16 to win. 15 for a Super Over

Kane Richardson to Holder, 1 run

mistimed pull shot flies high towards deep midwicket but falls just short! 140kph short ball got big on him, he completely mis hit it and fortunately it landed short of Harvey running in

Kane Richardson to Dwarshuis, OUT

caught at deep backward point! Short and angled across him, he slashed it off a thick outside edge and it flew straight to the well positioned Rossouw and he didn't juggle this one. Comfortable catch

Kane Richardson to Dwarshuis, 2 runs

137kph, length ball, he backs away and heaves it long on and they run two! The fielder couldn't get the throw in in time

Rhys Duncan: "Here's the law:A delivery is a no ball if it pitches wholly or partially off the pitch as defined in Law 6.1 (Area of pitch) before it reaches the line of the striker's wicketTherefore, first one was a wide, second one was a no ball" I'll back you in Rhys

Kane Richardson to Holder, 1 run

back of a length, outside off, he lets it come and runs it to short third man

Kane Richardson to Brathwaite, OUT

towering sky ball caught by Finch at mid off! Well bowled from Richardson. Banged in back of a length again, Brathwaite tried to launch down the ground, he sliced the ball high towards mid off, Finch camped under it and took the catch

Carlos Brathwaite c Finch b Richardson 4 (4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100

They check upstairs but he is fine

Kane Richardson to Holder, 1 run

136kph, banged in back of a length, he mistimes a pull forward of square, Brathwaite wants two but is rightly sent back and he just gets home
