9.35pm: So Sixers keep up their winning run against the Melbourne sides, and move level with Perth Scorchers at the top of the table. Four wins in a row now for the 2020-21 champions, while Renegades have suffered a third consecutive blank after a good start to their season. Chris Jordan is Player of the Match in the end, for his 2 for 25 and a magnificent catch: "Not feeling too bad, a back injury kept me out after the World Cup. It's something [catching] I practise day in, day out. When the ball went up it was just a matter of getting on my bike, and it managed to stick." Anyway, that's a wrap, we'll be back with another double-game day tomorrow. Why not head over to see whether the Karachi Test bubbles up to a thrilling finish, with NZ pushing hard for victory? Cheerio

"Am I the only 6ers fan worried about Mozzie's form?" wonders Superlative. "One MOM 52* in the past 6 innings including this one but it's really been a lean run of form for him. (24, 0, 0, 52*, 1 , 2)"
