Sydney Sixers 6 for 150 (Henriques 49, Edwards 40, Boyce 2-15, Richardson 2-37) beat Melbourne Renegades 105 (Marsh 39, Dwarshuis 5-26, Abbott 2-18) by 45 runs

Another Melbourne Renegades batting collapse allowed Sydney Sixers to cruise through for a big BBL victory in Geelong. After posting 6 for 150, the Sixers' quicks landed early blows and were always in control on their way to a 45-run win on Tuesday. Ben Dwarshuis benefited from the Renegades' woes, finishing with the outstanding bowling figures of 5 for 26 from his four overs.

After electing to bat, Sixers lost early wickets including Josh Phillippe for a duck third ball but found a powerful 40 from opener Jack Edwards, the youngster hitting three fours and a six in the strong knock.

Captain Moises Henriques made an enterprising 49, his four fours and a six and Dan Christian's 22 proving pivotal in an average total..

Former Australia T20 representative Cameron Boyce took 2 for 15 from his four overs in his first BBL game in two years, having missed last season with a serious health complaint and the beginning of this one with a calf injury. Boyce had Daniel Hughes caught on the boundary by Nic Maddinson, who flicked the ball up before stepping on the rope and completing the catch on his return to the field.

Edwards was also caught on the boundary off Boyce's bowling for 40, with Henriques deciding to up the ante in the power surge overs hitting Kane Richardson for consecutive fours.

Sixers reached the 100-run mark in the 15th over and Henriques and Christian further accelerated, adding 53 for the fourth wicket.

Sixers landed an early double-blow in the chase, with openers Jake Fraser-McGurk and Aaron Finch both out lbw to Jackson Bird and Sean Abbott respectively in the opening two overs, leaving the Renegades 2 for 11.

A vital partnership formed between Shaun Marsh and Maddinson and they pushed on to 2 for 41 before young spinner Todd Murphy had the latter stumped for 9 for his first BBL wicket.

But from 3 for 65, Renegades fell apart losing a quick 3 for 8, including the vital wicket of Marsh who chopped one onto his stumps for 39. Sixers cleaned up the tail and bowled them out for 105 with Abbott also chipping in.
