9.32pm That's all from today's game. Do join us for our coverage of the BBL tomorrow, when we have the first double-header of the season. Melbourne Stars are taking on Hobart Hurricanes at the MCG before Sydney Thunder square off against Adelaide Strikers at the Sydney Showground Stadium. This is Abhimanyu signing off on behalf of Shashank Kishore and Chandan Duorah.

Here's what Maddinson had to say about his Player-of-the-Match performance: "Obviously it's an innings I'm proud of. Started slow and picked up the tempo. That's something I have struggled with earlier, trying to hit too hard from early on. For me it's about playing good shots in the gaps. I decided today that I'd keep my shape and hit hard through the gaps. [On if his 100th BBL game could have gone better] A hundred would have been nice. With two overs to go, I thought I left 20 runs out there."

9.27pm Well, there we have it. Melbourne Renegades have pulled off an impressive 22-run victory here in Cairns. Their captain Nic Maddinson, playing his 100th BBL match, powered them to 166 with his brilliant knock of 87, despite wickets tumbling around him. Andre Russell also played his part, hitting 35. Then, Akeal Hosein got two early wickets and Heat never got back into the game since then.

W
Rogers to Bazley, OUT

Holes out to deep cover. Slower bouncer and he looked to slap it away inside out. Only manages to edge it and Fraser-McGurk makes no mistake as the innings ends as miserably for Brisbane Heat as it had started

Length ball, nudged towards deep midwicket

19.3

Rogers to Bazley, 2 runs

Goes for the yorker, but just misses out on the length, and he drives this hard down the ground. Mackenzie Harvey, the sub fielder, does well to run to his right from long-off and dive to stop the boundary

Unless there are extras, Renegades now have this match in the bag

19.2
1
Rogers to Whiteley, 1 run

Full and wide, he moves across and can only drill it to long-off

Every ball needs to go for a boundary now if Heat want to win

Kane Richardson to Whiteley, 1 run

This time, it was a drop! That was hit hard to Maddinson at cover and it bounced up off his hands. He couldn't get it on the rebound either

18.5

Kane Richardson to Whiteley, 2 runs

Dropped? Full ball around off and he looked to clear the ropes again but skied it in front of deep square. Akeal Hosein struggled to get there in the end

Kane Richardson to Bazley, 1 run

Almost gets the wide yorker, but Bazley is able to get down and drive that out to mid-off. They sneak in a very quick single

18.3

Kane Richardson to Bazley, 2 runs

Low full toss outside off, hammered just back past the bowler. Long-off cuts it off in the deep

Russell to Whiteley, SIX runs

He finds the roof! Very full delivery around off and he just stands and flicks it over cow corner and the ball goes high and far. Humongous hit, that.

Almost yorker length around off and he drills it down to long-on

Russell to Whiteley, 3 runs

Full and wide again, slapped away over extra cover again and Jon Wells does really well to run to his left from deep cover to dive and keep the ball out. Brilliantly fielded

Another dot ball as a slog sweep from Bazley can only find thin air. Good comeback by Mujeeb after being hit for a six first ball

Mujeeb to Bazley, no run

Fired in quick and full, Bazley again misses. Harper can't collect cleanly and he has his bat down by the time the bails are whipped off
