10.30pm: Sixers surge to a third win in a row, overcoming a sticky surface to defend a target of 150 with some ease. They know their way around the SCG and took Renegades' chase by the scruff with a powerplay that left the visitors 9 for 2. Ben Dwarshuis is named Player of the Match for his 4 for 17: "The wicket definitely favoured the bowlers but nice to come out there and take some wickets. It was nice, bowl a four-day length and the ball did a bit from there." Anyway, that's a wrap for tonight, join us again for tomorrow's double-match day. Bye!
