That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo. Another BBL game, between the other two Sydney-Melbourne teams getting underway very soon. And if you'd rather catch some Test cricket, then South Africa v Sri Lanka is on as well. See you from the action in Canberra.

9pm That's a massive defeat, and the second time the Renegades have been all out for a sub-100 score this season. This is also the second-worst defeat in BBL history. They also hold the record for the worst. The Thunder were superb tonight. They were 0/50 after 4 overs and never looked back thereafter despite wickets in the back half of their batting performance. The win also takes Thunder to the top of the points table...jumping from fifth to first. Wonder if Davies or Sangha will grab the Player of the Match award.
