Strikers thump Renegades, jump to third

  Strikers thump Renegades, jump to third The Strikers were clinical with the bat and lethal with the ball, keeping their BBL finals hopes in tact and extending the Renegades' woes. Set 174 for victory on Sunday, the Renegades slumped to 2-10 early and never recovered, rolled for 110 in 17.4 overs against a disciplined, economical Strikers attack spearheaded by veteran seamer Peter Siddle (3-14) and spin pair Rashid Khan (2-19) and Travis Head (2-26).

There were rapid half-centuries to Aaron Finch and Brendon McCullum but it was the Renegades who came though in a final-ball thriller over the Heat .

Two days after being rolled for 100 in just 17 overs in a 10-wicket thrashing by Adelaide, the Heat lost 10 for 36 on Sunday night to be dismissed for 120, chasing 165.

After the Renegades made 6-164, the Heat made a blistering start with Sam Heazlett and Chris Lynn belting an 84-run opening partnership in six overs.

Renegades clinch first BBL win of season

  Renegades clinch first BBL win of season The Melbourne Renegades have won their first game of the BBL season, defending 4-172 against the Sydney Thunder at a rain-hit Manuka Oval.The defending champions snapped a nine-game losing streak with a rain-affected win over the Sydney Thunder on Wednesday night in Canberra.

The Bash Brothers received some help from Max Bryant as the Brisbane Heat eased past the Melbourne Renegades away from home.

Melbourne Renegades have secured their first finals appearance since BBL |02, with Tom Cooper and Kane Richardson starring at the Gabba.

Lynn's innings included a 24-run over off Mohammad Nabi featuring three sixes including a 110m monster hit.

But when the Heat captain fell for 41 off 15, the rot set in.

South African star AB de Villiers was bowled for two by legspinner Cameron Boyce, who ended the match with 4-15 in a man-of-the-match display.

Boyce removed Matt Renshaw with his next ball and, suddenly, the Heat had lost three wickets for two runs.

Heazlett and Joe Burns set about steadying the ship but, when Heazlett fell for 56, an even bigger collapse was sparked.

English spinner Samit Patel (2-22) dismissed Jimmy Peirson for a second golden duck of the innings, before Burns (14) was run out in a disastrous mix-up involving Ben Cutting.

From there, the Heat's innings wrapped up quickly and the Renegades charged to their second win of the season.

The defeat leaves Brisbane's finals hopes on a knife edge with just three matches remaining and sitting sixth on the ladder.
