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

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"
He can't go full and wide again now. Finch and Sutherland change the field. Mid off goes back. Cover is up
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!
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!
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!
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
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
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
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
back of a length, outside off, he lets it come and runs it to short third man
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
They check upstairs but he is fine
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
Spintowin: "Not sure I understand the captaincy - Sutherland/Evans getting through this many overs with Nabi ending 2 for 11 from his two?!" Finch was worried about Nabi to all the right handers with a short midwicket boundary. But I'm sure he's regretting it
slower ball bouncer outside off, Brathwaite bailed out of the shot thinking it was a wide for height but it wasn't! Dot ball
slower ball gone wrong! It slipped out and missed the cut strip! It was so wide it is a no ball! He should have been penalised for that earlier in the over but he rightly is now
drilled over cover! Incredible shot! Full and fired into off, almost a yorker, he cleared the front leg and crunched it flat over cover. Outrageous power first ball
Holder and Brathwaite
Rossouw takes a diving juggler! Pure good fortune! Amazing catch! Silk sliced a wide slower ball high to deep point, Rossouw runs in and dives full stretch forward, it bounces off his hands, hits his face, lands back on his forearm and rolls up to his elbow and he cradled it against his body! It never touched the ground. What a catch!
good length slower ball cutter, 109kph, Silk swings and misses. Well bowled
attempted wide yorker slower ball and it's too wide again!
carved over mid off! He didn't middle it but it was in the slot and he got enough over it to get over mid off and run away to the rope
It perhaps should have been a no ball for not landing on the pitch
sprayed way wide of off attempting a wide yorker and it's nearly landed off the pitch!
130kph, wide yorker, he reaches out and crunches a square drive to deep point
